Best bakery in the Falls

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.

I first learned about Portage Bakery by going to a restaurant where the best thing about the meal was the bread! Every being the shy person that I am, it was my friend who asked about the bread. 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

love this little bakery, directly across from Super8 Ferry Street! before we went grain free, we always stopped here for their Benevento Pizza - so good and we still do make a point of stopping in to pick up dry italian sausages to take home. I'm from Toronto and even my kids request sausage if they hear I'll be in... More

Prior to our trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario, November 10- 12, 2013, I began to have a craving for cannoli. I researched bakeries there for the best cannoli. The store looked clean but we found the staff to be a bit unfriendly. We purchased a variety of pastries including cannoli. Although they were fresh, unfortunately, they were just okay with... More

They do have piping hot bread out of the oven at a reasonable price, but the whole wheat bread did not appear or taste like whole wheat. We ate it but did not enjoy it. All the other breads are white flour breads. I bake healthier and tastier bread myself! The prices of cheeses and cold cuts seemed high to... More

I came across this place by Tripadvisor. The bread was super fresh right off the oven. The selection was huge. Lots of pastries. Will visit again.
