We spent a weekend at a resort in the area and our make-at-home coffee felt like decaf. So, we made many trips to The Front Porch to re-fuel our caffeine needs. Nice place with friendly staff. Cute, homey feel. Didn't try any of the food, but the baked goods - including lots of gluten free options - looked good.

We very much enjoyed our stop at Front porch coffee. It had a homey/family friendly feel and staff was friendly. They had wifi and computers that you could use and a play area for the kids which I thought was very nice. They had a couch area as well as large and small tables inside and a lot of seating...

I'll take this place over a Caribou any day of the week. Charming atmosphere ... Quiche and pies are delectable. Lots of seating options and nice views of the Ely Strip.

My wife and I had just had breakfast at a local restaurant where the coffee was terrible. We’re not fancy coffee drinkers. We just need a good cup of coffee whether it would be from a gas station minimart or a coffee shop. We were new to the area and spotted the place as it is conveniently located. Inside is... More

We had a great breakfast here, with quiche and breakfast burritos. The coffee was also quite good. We came here as a cheaper alternative to the food at the lodge we stayed at and it was totally great.

We look forward to going here each time we come to Ely. Service is always excellent and the food out of this world. Quiches are great! And of course there's the oatmeal. It's always relaxing and you never know who you might run in to.
