My fiancé and myself enjoyed the chicken salad and steak sammie. Both delicious! Good coffee and very friendly helpful staff :)

It's a nice cosy cafe/restaurant and the food is great. The service is good and it has a great atmosphere.

We don't go out for meals often but have to say that the times we have been to The Porch have always seen us leave well-satiated & pleased to have had new choices each time. Service is very good & staff friendly. Even when busy they still have time to be attentive & meals not too long to wait for. Certainly gets recommended by us.

We arrived late about 8ish, maybe later and they didnt even bat an eyelid,Seated us and gave us some menu's. I ordered the scallops and eye fillet...I should of just gone for the scallops, don't get me wrong the fillet was devine but the scallops were filling and I struggled to finish my main...and I can eat. Relaxing atmosphere, soft music and good ventilation(a must in small places). I missed dessert...next time

What a surprise to get the best meal ever in a laid back casual cafe in a little beach town. I truly wasn't expecting much but was totally blown away by the food. Every element of the meal was amazing. The staff where brilliant, they squeezed us in when they could have turned us away. The service was excellent and timely, and the staff very attentive and friendly. I will be recommending The Porch to everyone I know.
