>We tried the much bally-hooed Portage Bay Cafe (the new Ballard location) for breakfast this morning and I came away…puzzled.
Here’s my Yelp review.
Bottom line: The place, the food, and the service were boring and bland. I much prefer the character of the 14 Carrot Cafe, Dish, Vera’s (or, on the weekend, Hattie’s Hat or the Lockspot).
But I’m told that the lines for Portage Bay are out the door on weekends, so Ballard obviously needed more breakfast spots.
