The coffee and espresso have a great flavor that's not covered up by the syrups in the espresso drinks. Service was personable; enjoyed talking with who appeared to be the owner or manager. Will definitely be back while in town!

We sampled each smoothie daily. Fresh made brew was perfect to start our day. Muffins good too. Love

Was looking for a local coffee/tea shop, non-commercialized for a chai latte. Being the first day of fall, they were offering a pumpkin chai latte... excellent. Made me feel at home in PA with such a fall treat. Bonus was the spinach feta and leek...More

Yep, it's strong--brewed full strength! Unbelievable that some restaurants cut the amount of coffee they use when brewing coffee--just makes the coffee more bitter. We do however offer 3 different coffees each day so you will find a light, medium, and dark roast each day....More

We went twice during the week! Raspberry filled pastry & mocha latte exceeded expectations. Get there early or you might miss out on fresh pastries!

We went to Front Porch for the wi-fi since our vacation rental doesn't have any but our experience was not stellar. My uncle ordered lemonade that he saw them making from frozen--definitely not fresh. There are no prices listed on the overhead chalkboard, which was...More

Sorry to disappoint--we make every effort to provide a special customer experience. Yes, the lemonade is made from frozen concentrate, but it's quite good, especially with the lavender added. Our prices are listed in our printed menus, freely available at the counter. We've tried posting...More
