My wife and I loved the fun, folksy ambience. The proprietor is super friendly, and the food is unpretentious but good. It's a small-town treasure! The limited menu changes according to the day of the week. Note that they are closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

This place is really cute. Lots to draw the eye. Stopped here while getting tires at "The Tire Shop". Had a nice lunch. Homemade bread for the sandwiches and the best cappuccino in a cold day. Will make this a regular stop

I love the nostalgic décor of The Chatterbox. Their ice cream and baked goods are delicious! The woman who waited on me was so friendly. This is a surprising find in Portage.

The Chatterbox is like a trip into the past. You can sit for hours just looking around at all the items displayed. It is a coffee shop/ice cream bar in an old department store. Lunch is served with a different soup and sandwich menu offering...More
