It’s a subtle difference! Usually these terms are used with reference to buildings. If one building is “opposite” another, then it’s on the other side of the street or road. “In front of,” on the other hand, is more ambiguous. If someone says they’ll meet you “in front of” a shop, restaurant, pub or house, then technically they will meet you on the same side of the street or road as that building, but if one building is in front of another, then it would be on the other side of the road.
