Situated in the heart of Philipsburg, Front Street Cafe is a part of Great Bay Boardwalk. It's worth noting that within the genre of Mediterranean culinary creations, this place eagerly offers their pizza and sandwiches.

Wanting to invoke the the phrases "clean," "fresh," and "natural," the color scheme at Front Street is based around bright greens and steel silvers. The whole set up is quite modern, and the decor is sleek and industrial with a few whimsical touches like mirrors shaped like stars to soften it up a bit. Dining is available indoors on two floors, and out on the terrace, and all guests are welcome to use the free WiFi service.
