Want to socialize? We have indoor and outdoor seating, delicious made-to-order sandwiches, premium locally-roasted coffee, plus food choices for kids, adults, hearty eaters, light eaters, snackers and sharers with additional breakfast, lunch, dinner and catering for larger gatherings. 

Want to work? Our Wi-Fi is crazy fast. We have power outlets everywhere. There are tables for 2-4 people, a meeting table for 8, arm chairs and a wonderfully comfortable sofa.

Want to impact people’s lives?  Every time you eat, have your meeting or group meet at The Portico or cater with The Portico Cafe, you are supporting people coming out of homelessness or addiction. We help people onto employment ladders and into safe housing.

We support homeless initiatives that:

  1. Raise awareness
  2. Mobilize tangible efforts to address this systemic issue: Homeless Jesus – Homeless Memorial – Housing initiatives with The Portico and Love INC

Spaces are available for your next meeting, event or workshop (with purchase of food and drink).

  • The Conversations Room inside the Cafe seats 25 people.
  • The Community Hall across the breezeway from the Cafe seats up to 400 people.
