    Made a reservation through Open Table and when we got there they didn't have record of it. I showed them my email and they worked to seat us as soon as they could, but we did have to sit at the cooks counter instead of a table, it was louder, but it was fine.

    We went to the Portage Bay Cafe on a Saturday at 9. We had reservations, but it was already busy. By the time we left there was quite a crowd gathered outside. The service was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. Sadly the food was unremarkable. I had the classic Benedict. The eggs were overdone and the bread was dry. At $13, I'd like my eggs to be done properly. There are too many great brunch places to waste time on mediocre food. TL;DR: nice place, food wasn't great.
