Front Street is universally loved. This is not an exaggeration. We asked our moms, our boss, our sister who’s still in college, that one guy we always see at the dog park, and our friend who self-identifies as an LinkedIn influencer. It’s one of the most versatile spots in Fishtown, serving food from breakfast until late night, with a cafe area in the front that’s perfect for grabbing a latte or smoothie. They’ve got a comfortable backyard, complete with a second bar for when the crowds start to take over inside, and they take reservations for all times of day, essential for when you’re trying to avoid that hour-wait on weekend mornings.
