The cafe is open and airy, with tall windows that let in a lot of light. There are counters and tables to work at, plus a handy room in back to reserve for meetings. The coffee is Intelligentsia, and there’s the standard lineup of coffee and lattes. We like the lattes and iced coffees, which are well-made and strong. There are also special drinks, like strawberry lavender lemonade. There’s a variety of baked items available, which Portage brings in from JR Dessert Bakery in Rogers Park.

Great coffee, nice place & patio overlooking Portage Park. Added bonus they have a conference room that can be reserved for meetings, study groups
Great Coffee and always fresh sweet treats! Great extra room for meetings. Staff always helpful and friendly.
I love everything about this place from the coffee, to the treats, to the atmosphere, to the friendly service. A+!
Love this cafe. Great atmosphere to sit and visit or get some work done. Great coffee, and they actually know how to brew a great cup of tea, too.
Beautiful space. Excellent coffee, perfectly prepared. (Not like Starbuck's acid.) Great selection of tea, with beautiful presentation too. Very nice free conference room too!
I love Portage Grounds. It's in a perfect location next to the park where you can enjoy a great cup of tea & the beautiful views. It is comfortable and cozy, everything a neighborhood coffee shop should have!
