About Us

Local, Organic, Sustainable, and all Yours!

For over 10 years, we have used local, organic, sustainable ingredients to create custom menus that clients and guests rave about! Our catering department creates memorable events for everything from corporate gatherings to wedding receptions.

Get away from the mainstream. Get out of that anonymous Hotel Meeting Room. Portage Bay Café offers three fantastic locations for your next private event.

Our Roosevelt café is near the University of Washington. Our South Lake Union café is in the heart of the vibrant, bustling neighborhood surrounding the new Amazon Campus. Our Ballard location is just a block from the Locks. Each café has its own unique character, but all share our commitment to locally sourced menus, created in partnership with you.

Portage Bay is the perfect location for any private dinner, from office parties to wedding receptions, product launches to auctions, we do it all. The Cafe can be arranged in a variety of ways, for large open receptions to intimate, family style dining. It’s up to you! We can accommodate groups from 20 to 150 in our cafes.
