We were in Dixfield to visit my wife's nieces and nephew and frankly that would be the only reason we ever go there. Off the beaten path, nice little town but that's it. But... now we have another reason, the Front Porch cafe. We stopped...More

We had the good fortune to have Sammie Angel, the owner of this restaurant, sing a Gospel concert at our church in August & she was wonderful. Friends had told us about her restaurant & that it was really good. We finally had the opportunity...More

I have eaten at this restaurant 4 times now and in addition to the excellent food for an extremely affordable price, the people who work there are friendly and personable and truly make for a first-rate Maine dining experience.

One of our family members who lives in the area has been raving about this place for a number of years; it is sort of his home away from home. We ended up having both lunch and breakfast there--quick lunch of American chop suey which...More

Place is very nice. A little crowded when busy but overall the Breakfast was good but service a little on the slow side.

This is a cozy little restaurant with a very reasonable price tag. Although the menu is small they offer decent food in a cozy country setting.

Stopped for lunch on the way home from a weekend at Rangeley Lake. Warm, homey space with eclectic decor. Yummy home-cooked dishes and friendly staff! Adding this one to our list of "musts" for trips up North.

Set in a nearly 200 yr old house, The Front Porch Cafe lets you step back to a friendlier, less complicated time when people spent time together just for sheer joy of sharing. It's cozy, eclectic, & fun, leaving you feeling like you just ate a big family dinner at home, with none of the work & cleanup afterwards! Plan on spending a little time reading the signs & enjoying the "indoor uptown outhouse" (restroom) while you are about it. Enjoy the excellent food & company, & you'll make this a destination every chance you get!
Open Weds through Sunday 8am - 3pm, & Thurs, Fri, & Sat.For Dinner 5-8pm. Open also on Mondays in Summer.
