To the millions of guests we've served, we are humbled by your continued patronage.

To the one thousand+ employees who've come through our lives, thank you for your dedication, humor and your hard work. We've watched a lot of you become adults, graduate from high school, college and grad school; get married and have kids; go off and start your own business or go off to make your mark on the world. Thank you for being a part of our Portage Bay family.

Thank you to Peter & Jane, our kids who grew up as the Cafe did. Portage Bay is truly a family business and having you grow up and choose to work with us is such a blessing.

Lastly, thank you to our friends both old and new. You have boosted us up when we struggled and celebrated with us when we succeeded.

It's been a great 20 years,
John & Amy Gunnar
