“Overpriced and not very good”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

I tried to make a less expensive choice for breakfast and was shocked when the bill came to over $50. The waffles were not very good and the "house-made" doughnuts were disgusting. We should have eaten in the village.

“Morning Hang-out”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

We came to Portobello several times to sit in the sun while having our morning coffee. One thing we liked was that coffee was discounted if you brought your own travel mug--they made an extra effort to save on waste and disposables. Average food, but extra pleasant surroundings.

This is part of the Fairmont in the Upper Village. A serve yourself style cafe. If you are missing decent espresso coffee you can find it here. Very reasonabally priced. Quick and easy cafe food.
