Greasy food – The food was very greasy and the service was very slow. It took along time to get refills on water. Also the food did not seem fresh and had a lot of oil on it.
Hangovers here are as popular as the pancakes, and the night-before gossip flows as freely as syrup. – In Short
Located on the quieter end of Ocean Drive, this is a favorite breakfast spot for locals who like good food and service sans the South Beach attitude. Dig into huge breakfasts like French toast with bananas and walnuts, omelettes stuffed with grilled veggies and Jack cheese, or blueberry pancakes the size of a steerig wheel. The lunch menu features standard but tasty salads and sandwiches, including a great chicken Caesar and an exceptionally good burger.
Great Breakfast – Breakfast here was great, but don't go looking for the pancakes recommended in previous reviews. I did, and was pretty disappointed to find that the only ones on the menu were granola pancakes. Don't let this keep you from going, though.
French toast was fabulous. I restrained myself from licking the plate. My sister-in-law, however, did not practice any such restraint, and after polishing off one piece of the key lime pie, very daintily ordered another! (She did share a bit of the second one.) Eggs with onions, cheese, and mushrooms were also delicious. The only complaint from our party of ten that I heard was from my brother-in-law and nephew, who had the pizza. They didn't enjoy it.
Fantastic!!!! – I love this place! The food is great, I have been ther a lot and it's always a great experiience. Friendly service, great big portions. It's a little crazy busy on the weekends but it's worth the wait. A must!
Great Location – Great place to eat and take a break from the sun. Located right by the beach.
Fabulous – Everytime I visit South Beach I make sure I ate at Front Porch at least 3 times a week for dinner. I never had breakfast (shoo I'm not awake that early from all the partying I did the night before) *LOL* The portions are exceptionally large. The food is very tasty and fresh. I haven't had anything on the menu that tasted bad. I highly recommend this spot.
"Best Breakfast in Miami - Period." – This restaurant has one spectacular breakfast menu. Absolute best bar none in Miami. I stopped by one Sunday morning for the first time because of an extremely high recommendation and I must say, the food and service were excellent. There were no problems with the seating or anything. Respectful staff and restaurant guests. I was greeted by the manager and the assurance of a wonderful breakfast experience was indeed granted. If you're on Ocean Drive, it is definitely a must. -L.A.
Food-A+.....Service-F – Great spot for eggs, any way you like all day long. The catch? Horrible service. But what can you expect when the tip is automatically added on! We had to ask for our toast three times, the water was never refilled, despite our begging. The waiters seem bored. Too bad 'cause the food is great, especially if you like eggs!
Don't Go For the Service – Although this popular breakfast hangout serves breakfast all-day, it may take 30-minutes to get our order on the weekend. The service here is very poor, which is unfortunate since the gratuity as automatically added.
YUM YUM YUM – I took the recommendation of all teh good reviews from citysearch and I was not let down at all. I too had the sicilian omelette, it was DELICIOUS! Our waiter was cool, the non-waiters that brought the food out was a little incompetent, but wth, the food was great and not pricey at all. I recommend it in no time.
