Great Italian bakery

We always look forward to stopping at the Portage Bakery in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Great bread, sweets, and authentic Sicilian pizza. You can have an espresso in their little cafe to pretend you're in Florence. The bakery is open every day, except Tuesday.

Sooo fresh and the smell is inviting. I particularly like the Italian breads. The pastries need to be tried , never too sweet. Friendly helpful staff. There also is a selection of sandwiches and things ready to go.

Fantastic bread period. This place is an institution in Niagara Falls. The only problem is it's located in Niagara Falls Canada, not New York.

Well we finally found it and we have been a loyal patron ever since! The fresh bread is amazing, but so is... More

First of all, they don't take any credit cards. What year is this? Also, there's no notice of that except for a tiny handwritten sign posted way behind the cashier. Classy. Of course, before you even get to the payment, you have to know how much everything costs, right? Except very few things have any prices on them, or even... More

Tried a few pastries in past and found them to be mediocre in quality and taste. Thought to give it another try, so I went in and bought a red velvet cake slice, and a cream puff. What a total waste of my money. Cake slice was very dry and had little taste. Not only was cake dry but the... More
