I was in Niagara Falls, Ontario a few days ago, on a walking trip to the Lundy's Lane shopping area (I live on the U.S side; having previously read that his bakery served coffee, I decided to stop here en route, for a rest and...a coffee break. What I hadn't expected was the charm of this little coffee bar, nestled against the far wall of an old-fashioned, classic Canadian bakery that was filled with the most delicious-looking (and smelling!) bread, sweets, and pastries you could ever hope to find!! :) The coffee bar was flanked by a cozy dining area on the right, and an "open air" (currently glassed-in) patio on the right, both of which were, like the rest of the bakery, both fully accessible for my rollator, and extremely cozy! :) I chose to have my coffee on the glassed-in patio, which overlooks Gladstone avenue; and the nice hostess couldn't have been more accommodating! as it was a dine-in order, she filled a porcelain teacup with rich, foamy, utterly fresh coffee; seeing that I had my hands full with the rollator, she even brought my coffee out to a table on the patio for me, took my money, and brought me back my change! :) The charming "sidewalk café" atmosphere of the patio made it a delightful place to sit for awhile, sip my delicious coffee, and bask in the sunshine pouring through the glass! :) One small caveat: the finger hole in the teacup was too small to slip my finger through, so I had to grasp it with my thumb and forefinger to lift the cup - not a big inconvenience, really! :) And, the indoor bathrooms are fully accessible! By all mean, treat yourself to a sunny morning on this patio! :)More
Have been meaning to find this bakery for years, used to dine at Macris across the river and always asked where they got their bread. From Canada they said!
Finally found it, and the deli is wonderful and the staff so helpful and friendly
If your Italian or Love Italian food and in the area or traveling by as I was on my way home from Toronto to Pennsylvania I always detour here. Their fresh Italian bread is absolutely wonderful, we have several places in my hometown (Erie,Pennsylvania) that...make good Italian bread but this is better, but the store is so much more then a bread store. The Capicola comes in mild, hot and xtra hot, I don’t know the brand but it is wonderful, as is the homemade Sopressata, let it get room temperature for the best flavor on their Italian bread, it’s heaven. I also load up on the shubs of homemade Sopressara in both Hot and Mild, so much better then the commercial brands.More
My family and I were on our way out of Niagara Falls when we spotted Portage Bakery. We were delighted by the extensive selection of cookies and other baked goodies. The sub rolls were also great. I was sad that we were on the road...and I couldn't try any of the home made pasta dishes. If you love Italian food, do not miss Portage! Pay attention to the days they are open, however. Also, get a cappuccino while you're there!More
Great baked goods and plenty of Italian specialties throughout the store. The bread was superb and service was filled with smiles. There's deli cheese and meats & it looked like about a dozen or more different flavors of biscotti. A must for us any time...we are in Niagara Falls. Doesn't look like much on the outside but inside it's a treat.More
This place has something for everyone. Meat, cheese and tons of treats and pastries. The prices are totally reasonable also.
It's not a restaurant. It's a bakery. You can have a sandwich made tho!
I would very much recommend!
