Description: Portivo Lounge is an informal, neighbourhood food led cafe/bar open all-day everyday where families, friends, and locals can come for a coffee, a drink, or something to eat in a relaxed comfortable environment. The Lounge menu is available all-day and offers a wide range of dishes including an extensive brunch menu, a selection of proper-job burgers, a great selection of tapas & more restaurant-in-style monthly specials. There is an extensive selection of coffee/tea, cakes and pastries, smoothies and fresh juice, and a small selection of wines, draught beers & cocktails. The interiors are comfortable, inviting, and a bit eccentric. The photos, a great majority of which feature Dave's (co-founder) grandparents, are weird and slightly unnerving! We've got a variety of board games available for either children or adults, daily newspapers to read, a kids menu, highchairs & a free neighbourhood book swap (bring an old book & swap it with a book in the bookcase). Think of us as your home-from-home.

Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

I have eaten here a few times with friends and had a pleasant experience every time. Lovely fresh cooked food the specials are always nice and they change them regularly. Staff always friendly and helpful. Only little negative is the wine is a little pricey for a 175 ml glass.

“Superb paninis!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Visited here with my daughter and it seemed a nice bar/ restaurant. It was busy at lunchtime and there was quite a queue to order food and a little wait for it but the ambience is really nice. The paninis were well worth waiting for and as moving to the area soon I'm sure I'll be back

“Portivo Lounge”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Love this place, got a good vibe, only trouble is it gets very busy, lunch times and evenings. Had a few good nights here. Food good, decor old and new, seating upstairs as well as downstairs and outside too. Really nice venue.
