I got a map that told me about all the places to eat within an easy walk of the Convention Centre. Since I wasn't in the mood for Red Robin or Applebee's, I took the Trimet into town and decided to try Huber's Cafe.
Huber's was established in 1879 and only 20 years after Oregon received Statehood. This place was originally a saloon, and anyone who ordered a drink would recieve a free turkey sandwich and a portion of coleslaw. And it was a delicious turkey club sandwich (and slaw) that I enjoyed today. And no, I didn't mind that it wasn't free after ordering a Draft IPA to go with it.
I like this place. It's comfortable and classy, and wears its age well. OK maybe the Men's room needs a little upgrade (and the removal of that step up). I sat in the front room and had a wonderful time, even though I kind of wished I had enjoyed my lunch back where that cool vintage bar is located. I also liked that the friendly and attentive service matched the ambiance.
The people watching bonus was a nearby table of 6 "Ladies Who Lunch" meeting and telling stories. They probably had been coming here for years and were clearly enjoying both the cafe and each other's company. That kind of fellowship always makes me happy.
I also appreciated that the wait staff wore uniforms that were consistent with the history of this establishment. Sometimes the casual slacker pattern runs its course after awhile.....Recommended for:

Huber's claim is to be the oldest bar restaurant on Portland. It certainly feels like a classic. Their signature Spanish Coffee, a delicious blend of Bacardi 151, triple sec, khalua, cream and FIRE comes with an impressive table side assembly show. Happy hour apps are tasty and cheap!Recommended for:

Good appetizers. Chicken wings were great, and the best thing? SPANISH COFFEE! Make sure you go to the bar and watch the bartender make this drink. It's quite a show and he even lights it on fire. Yes, there is a ton of alcohol in it, especially Bacardi 151. Maybe knowing less is better, but oh well, now you know!
