Welcome to The Porch

We are looking forward to the 2023 season. Last year was a big success as our new management led by members of the Campobello community – Dianna Parker and Taylor Davidson – took over The PorchThe Porch at Friars’ Bay Box Lunches and Breakfast Takeaway Boxes for guests. We are looking forward to seeing what they are planning for the upcoming season!

We are also excited to again feature local art shows, music nights and other special events at The Porch.

The Porch will be open Thursday, May 18th at 7:00am for the season

Our Menu

The updated menu will feature locally sourced food such as soups, sandwiches, specialty salads, and burgers. As the season progresses, new entrees, seafood chowders and daily specials will be added. You can dine in or take away for a picnic or a family meal at the Inn & Cottages. If you have allergies, just tell your server.

Bear in mind,  we are on an island so sometimes the menu will change to accommodate a scarcity or a season treat! Check out the blackboard when you come to visit.

We recently sat down with Dianna and Taylor and you can catch up on our conversation here:

This annual music, art and culture festival features five days of free concerts, exhibits from artists on both sides of the border, and more all across Campobello Island. Music styles range from classical, gospel and jazz to bluegrass, folk, rock and country, and venues include beaches, historic houses, parks, restaurants and more.
