Great place, great food

I was on the lookout for some good vegan food and this place did not disappoint. A little outside of town, but really excellent and fresh food. Will be back next time I'm in town!

Tasty healthy

I had the trio dipper plate. All dips were exceptional. The wraps and noodles are all good to. I took my carnivorous friend here and he liked it. Very healthy and light. You could go for a run after eating here. Cheese cake was killer too!

Great Cafe

I got the Spinach and Artichoke dip and Pad Thai entree at Portia's. Both were fresh and tasty. I will definitely be back for the Pad Thai, and next time I'm going to try one of the soups on the menu. The service was friendly and efficient. I'm glad to find this Clintonville gem!

Pros: Tasty food, Extensive menu, Good sized portions

Best Kale EVER!

5 Posted on 06 / 27 / 2014

Can't say enough good things about Portia's Cafe. Starting with Portia - what a sweetheart! The food is divine! Both in flavor and in soul-nourishment. The Deep Green kale salad is literally the best kale i've ever had - it's better than candy! The quesadilla's are wonderful. Everything is gluten free. I haven't had anything there i don't like. Oh, did i mention the sunday waffles? Worth the trip alone!! SO GRATEFUL to have this restaurant in town!

Pros: Charming little restaurant, Incredible food, great, kind service

Loved every bite!

It was a bit pricey, but I guess that's what you get when you order half the menu! We tried the 1/2 Sampler with veggies (with Spinach-Collard-Artichoke Dip and Sunny Walnut Pate), Pad Thai with zucchini noodles (the special/not on the menu), Savory Patty Wrap in the GF tortilla, SuperPower Wrap in lettuce, and Chocolate Mousse. They use fresh and tasty produce. We will definitely go there again.... soon.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Relaxed, Clean Environment, Excellent Food

Our family loved it!

Ate at Portia's today with my wife and two of our children. I had the Notuna Wrap and the Deep Green kale salad. The food and service were excellent. They make the gluten free tortilla wraps from scratch and to order, so be patient with the amount of time it takes to prepare your food. We will be back often!

Pros: Very Fresh, Polite Service, Tasty!
Cons: Easy to drive by.

Fresh and Delicious with Quick Service

5 Posted on 07 / 06 / 2013

I took my elderly parents (non-vegetarian) to Portia's today. We had the dipper sampler. I got a carrot/apple/celery juice and a SuperPower Lettuce Wrap. My dad got the Lentil Soup. Both of my parents got Notuna Lettuce Wraps and kept asking me if it was real tuna - they were very pleased. Then we each got a different smoothie. I was happy that my parents were willing to try it and that they enjoyed the meal. It was a bonus that the food was really good and the service was quick and friendly. It is a small place but that is understandable given that it is a new venture. I hope it continues to prosper because it is nice having a place where I can eat out near my parents.

Pros: good food, quick and friendly service
Cons: small, got crowded during lunch

Outstanding Experience!

5 Posted on 06 / 21 / 2013

My wife and I are seriously considering going vegetarian again and possibly even Vegan. We checked out Happy Cow and found Portia's Cafe in Columbus, Ohio.

To get a good overview, we ordered an appetizer, main dish, and dessert. We started with raw Broccolli soup that was truly delicious and a great way to start a meal!

For the main dishes, we tried the Guacamole Garden wrap and a burrito for my wife. Both were completely stuffed and just dripping with flavor!

If this wasn't enough, we ordered 2 kinds of Cheezecakes (their spelling). One was made from berries and the other pineapples. I'm here to tell you - those desserts will rival any normal cheesecake dishes any day of the week!

In conclusion, due to this being a 5 star rating system, we are definitely giving it them an emphatic 5!! We are completely looking forward to our next visit...which will probably be tomorrow!!

Great Vegan Food In A Relaxed Calming Environment

5 Posted on 05 / 19 / 2013

I was very excited to find a vegan restaurant in reasonable driving distance. I am even more excited after eating there as they offer a great casual dining menu that will be sure to please. I dined with a friend who is not a vegan and she loved the food as well. The desserts are extra yummy so make sure to leave room or take to go, you wont be disappointed.

Pros: Great Food, Relaxed, Friendly Environment
Cons: None
