  • Skip the line and call in your reservation- it's always busy at portage bay!
  • One of the best breakfasts in Seattle. The side of toast alone is an atom bomb of delicious in your mouth.
  • If you are looking for a perfect brunch on a weekend, this is the right place. Try their various selection of Egg Benedict ranging from wild-mushrooms to salmon and more.
  • Crab cake eggs Benedict is the best thing on the menu.
  • Gluten free French toast is unbelievable for those of us with the intolerance. Just subbed gluten free for the special French toast with nectarine compote, nom!!
  • They take reservations for breakfast. Highly recommended. The wait is often 45-60 minutes otherwise.
  • Great place for brunch, though it gets crowded fast on weekends. The swedish crepes are delicious. Excellent toppings bar for pancakes.
  • having breakfast
  • cant go wrong with a trip to the toppings bar here!
  • Migas with chorizo!
  • Farmer's hash and oatmeal crusted french toast danced in my mouth! (Big portions too). The fresh, local ingredients are tasty, and you can gorge on fresh berries at the Breakfast Bar
  • Great buck wheat pancakes!!!!
  • Getting a reservation is a pointless endeavor. It reduces your hour wait to 55 mins.
  • If you're in the mood for a sweet breakfast, the French toast is the way to go. So delicious. Top it off with some fresh fruit and whipped cream from the complementary "breakfast bar."
  • Great breakfast bar selection with unlimited toppings!
  • For waiting about 30 mins to be seated, I expected more. Food was good, but not worth the wait. It's cool that they use local and organic products. Come early on a weekday to avoid the long wait.
  • Avoid the prime rib dip
  • the buckwheat porridge w/ carob chips is horrendous. if I were truly vegan, that would send me to the closest steakhouse for a giant cut of porterhouse steak. and I LOVE most food.
  • Reservations will avoid the 40 minute wait on weekends. Get the phil's breakfast w/ fried eggs, bacon & French toast on challah bread.
  • Crab cake eggs Benedict. Like, eggs Benedict... on crab cakes. I do not need to elaborate here.
