My best suggestion - Do not go there hungry! or else you may pass out before you get any food - or even seated !
We made reservation over the phone - no proble, maybe 15-20 min wait ! After arriving and waiting over 45 minutes and noticing

This place makes a mouth watering Banana's Foster's French Toast! It's like having dessert for breakfast! While the wait for a table can be long, it is totally worth it. Parking is hard to find in this area, but that's okay. I don't mind the long walk back to my car after eating 2/3rd's of my calorie intake for the day.

If you consider yourself a locavore, you've got to give Portage Bay a try. Their motto, "Eat like you give a damn," pretty much says it all. They menu focuses on organic, local, sustainable, seasonal foods. All your breakfast favorites can

I looked up The Portage Bay Cafe on citysearch expecting to see a lot of rave reviews and I was shocked, SHOCKED! to see it pulling in only one. The first reviewer makes this place sound awful, but you need to put this awesome place in

Mistakenly made the reservation for 12 people (rather then 13). Though we had a reservation, we still had to wait over 30 minutes for a table.. which we had no problem with being that we were talking among ourselves :) When we finally got seated I indicated that I mistakenly made the reservation for 12, but there were 13 of us and asked if one more chair could be added to our table. The manager rudely indicated that he could not get another chair for us and that there was no room .. I informed him very nicely that we did not mind squeezing in another chair at the table. He smiled at me (big grin) and told me that I would have to sit on my friends lap and walked away.

I couldn't believe how he acted, being how fixable the situation was (we grabbed a chair that was not being used and added it to the table ourselves). I can see Portage Bay Cafe loosing a lot of business based off of how this manager treats your customers. He seemed very stressed out and rude to others as well. I would not be surprised if you receive other complaints.

Cons: very rude, not good for large groups even with a reservation
