59 Rehoboth Ave.
Rehoboth Beach, DE
The place that put Rehoboth dining on the map, The Back Porch Café continues to lead the charge on progressive bistro dining. International ideas and seasonal produce find their way onto a menu that might include thyme-braised veal cheeks one night and venison schnitzel the next. The porch, of course, is one of the best seats in town.
There’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee, right? How about a flaming coffee? And by flaming, we mean coffee that is literally set on fire tableside. Critics Paul and Bonnie Cullen will fight for a table at Back Porch Café just to sip its Café Flambé, a coffee tweaked with Kalúa, Galliano, Lewes Dairy whipping cream, sugar, lemon, cinnamon, and, of course, fire.
