    Breakfast exceeded expectations, I went with my girlfriend to have an authentic American brunch experience, and coming for a foreign country I can tell you, that it was great. We got a couple of different dishes to share, the smokes salmon benny, and the Californian omelets, eggs were cooked perfectly and also service was great. they also have a bar cart where they make drinks in front of the table, super cool, definitely be back next time I'll go to Miami.

    My recent visit to Front Porch Cafe was exceptional. The staff provided attentive service and the food was delicious. The warm and inviting atmosphere, especially the charming outdoor seating area, made it perfect for dining with friends or family. I highly recommend Front Porch Cafe for a memorable dining experience in South Beach.

    Vengo a miami seguido, es un punto turistico que mi familia y yo amamos, venimos de vacaciones hace mas de 4 años y nunca habia cenado en un lugar tan lindo y tranquilo, la atencion fue excelente y la comida aun mejor, yo cene un plato llamado chicken parmesan y se convirtio en uno de mis platos favoritos, tome un par de tragos en la barra y no solo que estaban buenisimos sino que no me pare de reir con el bartender ni un segundo, 10/10 super recomendable

    Overall the portions were good and well seasoned. Everything was readily available and staff was very nice. I went with a friend at 11am on a Saturday with a reservation and still had to wait a minute but sat outside while gay pride was going on so noise was definitely an issue however I suspect that is not the norm. Would definitely go again.

    I ordered a steak and it didn't match the menu description in terms of size and the side dishes were different. I asked for them to be replaced with what was on the menu. The steak tasted decent but wasn't high quality.

    I must say, I was quite impressed with their dinner menu! I’ve been coming here for years for breakfast and thought of trying their dinner menu. We enjoyed everything but specifically the short rib, they were divine! Servers were attentive and polite. Overall, great experience.

    Front Porch Cafe used to be my favorite breakfast spot in Miami. I literally had to go there every time I was in town BUT after this visit NEVER again. I was seated on the patio immediately but that is where the “service” ended. A server came by asking if I had been helped, I responded no, he looked as if he was going to take my order but then saw the person who was actually supposed to be my server and called him over. He took my order walked away and I didn’t see him again until I asked another server to ask him to bring my check. It took longer than usual….an extraordinarily long time for my order to come out and when it did it was awful. Although, unseasoned, the eggs were the best thing I ate. The turkey bacon was overcooked and cold. The potatoes were uncooked and cold. The pancakes looked like they were cooked by a 4 year old. Oddly the syrup tasted like plastic. And the toast was not worth trying at all. I suppose the Front Porch Cafe has run its course for me. On to the next!

    Our experience at the Front Porch Cafe was mediocre at best. The service was not very good. We did not get everything we ordered and a few people had to wait several minutes to get there food after most of our party was served. For the cost of breakfast i was not impressed at all.

    The service was absolutely horrible. Waitress came to our table once to get waters and place our order. it took 45. To get our drinks and our food. Then she never came back. We had to ask someone to get us our check. The food was awful. Toast wasn’t toast it was soggy bread. The potatoes were not cooked and were soggy. The steak supposed to be cooked medium was burnt. We wanted another drink but since our waitress never showed back up we couldn’t get one. This is the fault of a forced 20% service tip. They don’t have to work for their tips.
