Had both breakfast and dinner there on this trip to Ely. Both the quiche and the burritos were excellent, as was the coffee. Enjoyed the music on Tuesday evening.

The Front Porch is primarily a coffee shop with some quiche options available. The muffins, cookies and quiches are good, but do not expect a full sit-down breakfast. The coffee is well-rounded. This was my kind of breakfast.

Stopped in for a coffee and blueberry scone. Great place for eats as well as catching up on some postcard writing and internet surfing. Comfy chairs, a great "front porch," and friendly service. A good Ely hometown feel!
