As a part of Three couples we have tried a number of restaurants in the area including Portage Bay (across the street)
Here at Cactus we tried several items, all of which were excellent.
Tres Leche French Toast is the best French Toast I have enjoyed ANYWHERE in the Country! It is made with three types of milk blue corn for the toast recipe (plus the "secret" ingredients). Bananas reduced in a rum sauce are also part of the serving. WOW!
The 2nd best breakfast in the area is the Portage Bay. They have a wonderful serving bar for French toast, but the overall taste there no matter how you do it doesn't compare (unless you want to stack lots of fruit on your pancakes),
All in all, the side of bacon is slightly better also at Cactus than Portage.
Finally, the crowding and waiting at Portage Bay and lack of such waiting is also a point in favor of Cactus (although hours of service are different). Cactus opens at 10:00 on weekend, Portage Bay 7:30. We arrived about 9:30 and were told we would have an hour wait at Portage Bay (we are there last breakfast and had a wait if 20 minutes). That is why we tried Cactus-and we are GLAD we did!
