Food - Company - Hospitality

Located in Collingswood, New Jersey, Porch and Proper is a place to celebrate the love of food, good company, and warm hospitality. Our focus is to bring our guests a contemporary and ever-changing menu of globally influenced dishes with a dedicated integrity to our local producers.

Porch and Proper sits in a 100-year-old building with historic charm. The space has been outfitted in rich walnut, warm leather, and crushed velvet. The porch is the perfect setting for outdoor dining; a lush private garden outfitted with herbs and flowers grown and used in many of our dishes.

Jason and Casey Simkins, owners of Porch and Proper, are long-time industry veterans. Both have tenured histories managing Philadelphia locations for Starr Restaurants (Buddakan, Morimoto, Parc, Alma de Cuba). Their appreciation for great food, service and a community vibrant with culture and energy is what ultimately brought Porch and Proper to Collingswood.
