Drove six hours in snow to get to Ely. When we got to the restaurant it was hard to get in due to icy side walks. The is a quaint restaurant. Many locals were there having coffee or breakfast. The staff on were very helpful....More

It was like walking into someone's warm, welcoming kitchen. Lots of variety in both food and beverage when we stopped there for coffee one morning. We will certainly be going back to sample what looked to be some fabulous quiche in the display case!

Stopped in for coffee and picked up a chicken salad wrap to go. Mmm.. They use Ghirardelli chocolate syrup for their mochas. Wrap was fresh and homemade. Bakery items and cheesecake looked delicious, but we didn't try any.

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.

If you like quiche this is a very good place to get it. Their coffee drinks are pretty good too and they have some yummy deserts!!

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.
