The Front Porch Cafe Restaurant Review

: Open since 1990 on the quieter end of touristy Ocean Drive, The Front Porch Cafe has been a locals’ favorite for its breakfasts. When it moved a block north to the Z Ocean Hotel, fans followed to try executive chef Todd Webster’s additions. Breakfast items, served till 6 p.m., include green eggs (scrambled with pesto) and hearty granola pancakes as well as kimchi scrambled egg and cheddar tacos and pizza topped with a fried egg. For lunch there are sandwiches like turkey meatloaf with chipotle ketchup on marbled rye and Baja fish tacos. Munch on crispy pork rinds and pig ears followed by tempura chicken with wasabi grits or braised short ribs with slaw with a glass of wine for dinner out on the front porch.
