The Front Porch Cafe offers an intimate experience that
only a historic mansion can provide. Each of our dining rooms is unique, offering a relaxed and comfortable elegance. Reservations are recommended.
Farm to Table
We use only "farm-fresh" meats, produce, fruit and the very freshest seafood, purchased from York County farms and dairies whenever possible.
Because we cook with only fresh ingredients, our menus are constantly changing to feature seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Look for something new every time you visit the Front Porch Cafe.
Our focus is on making you an unforgettable meal, made with fresh ingredients and fresh ideas, at an affordable price and at the speed you need.
A Unique Dining Experience
The Front Porch Cafe is a completely remodeled 1880's mansion. Built in 1885 by the Frey Family, the home still offers the same charm as it did back then. Each one of our dining rooms has a unique fireplace and original hardwood floors. You can choose to dine in the library, the front dining room, the lounge, the upstairs dining room or the front porch.
We encourage you to look around at this magnificent home.
Admire the original art of local and regional artists. Enjoy dessert after dinner, while listening to live jazz.
Bring Your Own Wine
We do not currently sell any beer, wine or spirits at The Front Porch Café, but we are pleased to offer wine service at your table so that you can enjoy your favorite bottled wine.
We also allow you to bring Craft beer and spirits.
$4 for three bottles or less - $2 for each additional bottle after three.
