“Dumped it out!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

I wanted to like this place. We went last year and tried the coffee and I was not impressed. I thought maybe it was just an odd thing so I tried it again this year..... I had to dump the coffee out! :( I am a coffee lover and drink it all day (usually black Americanos) but I get cappuccinos, occasionally, too. This coffee had a stale flavor and I could not drink it at all. I won't be trying this place again. I did find a couple of places that I loved to get my coffee fix. Waverider made me a great capppuccino, and we loved Sam and Ollie's coffee that we had with breakfast one morning. Life it too short to drink stale, tasteless coffee!

“Happy espresso days!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Was very happy to have the Front Porch Cafe nearby for my espresso each morning of our visit. Staff was always cheerful, fast and professional. Cool cafe atmosphere. Nice variety of pastries and bottled juices to supplement your coffee/tea needs. A definite bonus on our trip. Thank you!

I tired to go there every morning during my vacation. The vanilla ice coffee was great. My husband and the one of the flavors of the day. He stated that it was great.

“Great place to get the day started right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

I read all the reviews that said "great coffee! Etc.". I thought "How different can the good coffee be?" Well they answered that. "Really good!!!" I had a rainforest blend and a Papua New Guinean the next day. The everything bagel with almond butter was a great combination for me (no peanut butter). I will be back! Great friendly service too

“Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

I am not a coffee drinker, but it seems to be a coffee lovers paradise. I love the fresh baked goods such as the croissants and cookies. Sometimes they have juices that I love. Very comfy.
