Restaurant Review: Lunch At The Yellow Porch

Restaurant Review: Lunch At The Yellow Porch

It is a cold, wet winter’s lunchtime, but inside The Yellow Porch on Thompson Lane there is palpable warmth which has nothing to do with central heating. The charming and chic establishment is great for a business or even a ladies’ lunch. It’s a visual delight, from the exquisite artwork by Shon Hudspeth and bright colors, to the delicious smells floating in the air from the kitchen. We indulged in house-made tomato basil soup, port poached sun-dried cherry salad, seared salmon salad, and chicken penne pasta. 

Who to take for lunch?

Your co-workers or girlfriends 

What to have?

The pasta! 

What to drink?


How much do I need?

$20-$30 for the full experience

What not to do?

Plan on going when you are in a hurry. It’s a smaller place with no patio option in the cold, wet winter. Though the wait is worth it.

Save room for desert.
