With its contemporary Old World atmosphere, this is as inviting a place as you’ll find.

A Cruvinet controls the temperature of each bottle on the affordable wine-by-the-glass program. The list of top-shelf wines is impressively cosmopolitan.

CRITICS | The Back Porch Café
59 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3674
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.
