Portage Bay Café

Looking for the best brunch in Seattle? Look no further. Portage Bay Café owns the Seattle brunch scene. Lucky for University of Washington students, it’s only a few blocks from campus.

Indulge in a cup of hot espresso and peruse through a menu while you wait for your table. This place is usually packed. But it wouldn’t be packed if it wasn’t good, right? The service is up-beat and friendly. The food is fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is chill.

I was in Seattle over Halloween weekend visiting friends and enjoying the holiday festivities. On Sunday morning I found myself waking up at noon, beyond the point of grungy, and starving. I knew Portage Bay was my only hope. And it serves breakfast all day!

I ordered the Cinnamon Twister French Toast. This dish comes with three slices of homemade raisin cinnamon-roll bread, crushed pecans, organic flame raisins, and cream cheese icing. My boyfriend ordered Bananas Foster French Toast. This dish comes with three slices of their challah French toast, house-made Myer’s rum caramel sauce, sautéed organic fair-trade bananas, and whipped cream. These platters also include trips to Portage Bay Café’s popular toppings bar to pile up on fruit, nuts, and yummy goodness. And of course… it wouldn’t be brunch without a side of pepper bacon to share.
