It's certainly the place to be to spend time with locals, coffee clutches, families, etc.
Great breakfast food and coffee! The locals have their names on their cups hanging by the counter! The bulletin boards are full of what's happening in Ely! If you are visiting -don't miss it! It beats Starbucks any day!

The Front Porch calls itself "a place to gather and connect," and boy, is it! On any morning, you can squeeze in and find a group of people having their usual get-together. Many "business" meetings take place here. It's usually noisy. Free WiFi is available, and you can even rent a computer for 15 minutes at a time. Food is all made in-house and is excellent. Chicken burritos and tuxedo cheesecake are particular standouts. Local artwork, music, books and assorted coffee and tea paraphernalia is also for sale.

Friendliest cup of coffee in town! Locals have their cups hanging on the wall with their names on them. I went twice while in town. The also have Wifi -great bulletin boards full of local events. Live Music in the summer where locals come out with their lawn chairs in the street! Great oatmeal and other breakfast items. Would definitely return when in town! Better than a Starbucks any day! Locally owned business.

Last stop after a day trip to Ely. I had a cup of brewed coffee, my friend had a fancy latte. We shared a slice of cake. Both drinks were fresh, hot and tasty. The cake was rich and flavorful. The highlight was the two guys behind the counter. Friendly enough to make us feel welcome and quick to get our order up. It was not a busy time of day. We sat on the outdoor porch and one of them checked on us once to be sure we were happy (we were). I thought that was a nice touch for a place that offers counter service, only. This is not my first visit here and won't be the last.
There's a mug rack near the counter and each mug is marked with a name. My guess is these are the local regulars who stop in often. An indicator that this is the place to be.
