“Beautiful day and delicious lunch!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon with our toddler. The waitress was very helpful with setting him up on a stacked up chair so he could reach and she brought him a picture to color with crayons. We had a fresh cooked soup of the day which was very creamy. We ordered a pizza and spaghetti plate for our son. Everything tasted fresh and natural. We were full but not overly stuffed. Usually we pass on dessert but we saw a piece of pie called The King, holy smokes was it sooo delicious! If you want a delicious treat for the sweet tooth, despite it's ingredients and kooks, it was percfect, not too sweet, you can enjoy all the flavors without one being over powerful. We will be back soon!

“Breakfast on the Go”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

WOWOW! We stopped here as we headed out of town on our 8 hour drive home. I bought a loaf of their homemade bread, some breakfast sweets and a few koloches. The koloches are a MUST. So sorry we didn't try them earlier in our trip. We didn't have a chance to try them but they also make breakfast tacos. The service was nice, they helped me carry my things to the car and even brewed some hot tea in a togo cup.

“Who says you can't start with dessert? !”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

I visited the Front Porch for the first time last week with my brother and girlfriend. We went to get our Christmas trees and had heard about the scrumptios pies.
We were taken by the lengthy list of homemade pies and
ordered 2. We cut right into then and enjoyed with coffee.
The King Pie is it if this world! Would like to make another trip up and order lunch first.

“good pizza”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

This establishment has pretty good pizza..my last tasting of thier pizza was not as good as the previous time though, could have been just a off day. I have found that the pizza is above average and worth a visit. Comparing thier pizza with the Corner Deli in Timberon, I rate this place second in taste, however this establishment offers a lot of different menu items. Give it a try you will not be disappointed. Thier open for business times are a little different so check before you go, I tried ordering one night after 7 pm and they were closing.....
