The Front Porch, a retail shop and tasting room co-founded by The Patio Restaurant Group's Gina Champion-Cain and Melissa Scott Clarkopened its first store last summer around the corner from The Patio on Goldfinch in Mission Hills.

The market, which sells gourmet food items, including condiments and sauces from The Patio's private label brand, plus housewares and home decor items, is expanding into Coronado and will open a second store at 918 Orange Avenue in early July and has a third in the works for Solana Beach.

There will be take away food options, ranging from sandwiches to soups, salads and desserts, from The Patio Group’s executive chef, John Medall, and a variety of vinegars and California-grown olive oil for sampling and retail sales. The store will also feature furniture made from repurposed wine barrels, handcrafted by local artist Gustaf Anders Rooth, who will be hosting cooking demos on his custom made IQ Smoker at the Coronado shop.
