Just had breakfast here...absolutely delicious and filling to boot. I had the special, which was a delicious veggie benedict, my husband had the biscuit breakfast. Both were tasty and plenty to keep us full until dinner. The service was good and attentive. We will definitely be back.

We arrived with six adults, all ordered different breakfast foods at 10 am and not only was the service wonderful, but all our orders came out just a s ordered! We were thrilled- plus the food was hot and delicious. The waitress was very attentive and happy (bonus!) and we'll head back soon, no doubt about it. It was also... More

We had 9 family members celebrating my son's graduation from CSU. We called Back Porch Cafe and they took our reservation for breakfast. We ended up eating out in the Stone House and it was very nice. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding (Thanks Abdel!). The Bloody Mary was very good and the biscuits and gravy were... More

This is a bit out of the central part of Ft. Collins, but still an easy bike ride. The construction around this is a bit distracting, but the cafe is like an oasis. I had the chorizo omelet smothered with red chili, and it has to be the best omelet I have eaten in years. They had a happy hour... More

Everyone at the table was happy with their breakfast! The potatoes in particular were seasoned to perfection and crisp. Orders were accurate for our table of 6 and service was very good. Love the patio area. We had a beautiful morning and the garden like setting made for a great breakfast dining experience!

I know people that love this restaurant but it was just o.k. to me. I thought the portions were small and the wait long.

We stopped in for lunch on the recommendation of locals. We were in the mood for salad and tried the Cobb and a smoked chicken salad. Both were excellent, with fresh ingredients and freshly baked bread. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We sat on the patio, and even though it was a warm day, there was a breeze and... More

We went to the Back Porch Café this past Sunday when our usual breakfast place was closed for some reason. We called ahead for seating and only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. The server appeared pretty quickly for drink orders. She returned to take our food orders in an appropriate time, but other members of the... More
