Amazing food and highly personable server, chef and owner. The potato andouille sausage soup was the best I've had. Shrimp and grits were perfection, peach-blueberry pie with orange cream to die for. I don't write many reviews... Had to for this place. A must.

My sister and I were there to celebrate our birthdays. Ended up we had the place to ourselves. Both of us ordered the crab bisque soup. It was the best we've ever had but a little pricey for a cup. We ended up ordering the filet and crab cakes so we could have "surf & turf". Filet was cooked perfectly.... More

First visit, and found service and food excellent. Very creative menu and specials. Would strongly recommend. Contrary to another review, we found the atmosphere charming and nicely decorated for Christmas. The overall design of the restaurant is very pleasant with large windows and a nice fireplace which we sat by on a cold late fall evening. A little tricky to... More

The food was limited on the menu but that didn't mean anything. Crab bisque soup was excellent, and caprese was very fresh. The fried green tomato BLTs were really good as well. It's a little confusing because it's called back porch cafe but they don't serve any type of brunch there. I live in Skippack and this place is very... More

We held a birthday dinner for 15 adults and 2 children with the restaurant closed to others for the evening. Deanna and her husband, Nate, could not be more helpful. They suggested having appetizers family style and limiting entrée choices to 3. As appetizers we had Devils on Horseback (dates wrapped in bacon and bleu cheese), gnocchi, and mussels. All... More

Let me start off by saying that our party of 4 sat outside and the ambiance was lovely. Our waitress informed us that there was an appetizer special, but no entree specials, which I thought was odd. We started off with a mixed berry salad that was delicious. The entree that both me and my friend ordered was the PETA... More

We two couples were there this past Saturday, for the fourth time, and again enjoyed a delightful dinner prepared by chef Nate. Since he came on board, the restaurant has improved from okay to great! Every dish was excellent, and we plan to make BPC a regular part of our dining locations. Can't beat a wonderful BYOB!
