    Voodoo Doughnut

    Wow! Multiple friends had mentioned that a stop at Voodoo donuts was a "must Do' in Portland. If the line around the building was any indication of how good these donuts were, we would've come sooner! I am not a huge donut person, but my husband is a fanatic and was blown away. Don't miss the Portland Creme and the ...

    Salt & Straw

    I had one of the best ice cream flavors here the last time I visited. It was one of their seasonal specials - Tillamook cheddar cheese and apple, something like that. It was a super combination of savory (cheese) and sweet (apple) and it rocked my world. Lines are usually long at Salt & Straw, but SO worth the wait ...

    Tin Shed

    Great brunch menu, prepare for a very long wait to be seated though. Open air seating and dogs welcome. Pro-tip: while you wait you can grab a mug and enjoy cup of coffee outside while waiting to be seated! Vegan friendly!

    Sisters Coffee Company - The Pearl

    11 reviews

    In the heart of the Pearl District, it's one of many cafés for good coffee, but here you can also post up with fast internet next to the fireplace or up in the mezzanine. The breakfast sandwiches are delicious. We ordered the natural sausage, provolone and cheese on an English muffin — so delicious! The mixed berry scone was bursting ...

    Deschutes Brewery & Public House

    26 reviews

    Ah, Black Butte Porter. The brew that has gotten me through many long nights at bars across the country. Here you can get it straight from the tap, at one of Portland's landmark brewpubs in the Pearl district. Also take a look at the experimental and seasonal brews they've got on tap, from Belgian fruit beers to gluten-free versions. Fresh ...

    Nong's Khao Man Gai

    7 reviews

    Do try Nong's Khao Man Gai. I loved it. Simple, flavorful and comforting to eat. It's tender pieces poached chicken on top of rice cooked in chicken broth, served with a delicious soy bean-ginger-garlic-vinegar-chili sauce, and wrapped up in butcher paper, old school style. I ate this dish sitting at a nearby park, as there was no seating. Nong's is ...

    Le Bistro Montage

    Montage is famous for its quirks - it's open late, its under-the-bridge location is hard to find, it's incredibly dark, the waiters yell to each other, and leftovers are served in foil twisted into shapes like birds or swords - but it stays popular because the food is so darn good. The concept is Cajun/Creole, and you can definitely expect ...

    Namaste Indian Cuisine

    4 reviews

    The best Indian buffet I've had in both quantity and quality. I especially liked the Tandoori Chicken. There was a mind-boggling variety of chicken dishes, as well as several vegeatarian dishes, salad, desserts, curries, saag panner, naan, rice, fried appetizers, sauces and many more I didn't have the room to try. An incredible deal.

    Killer Burger

    3 reviews

    Okay, the rating is NOT for decor/ambiance - but if you want the BEST burger on the planet, make your way to this little hole-in-the-wall eatery. Burgers are IT on the menu, with a bevy of local beers.No wine. Burgers range from the usual to the unusual - peanut butter and bacon burger. We haven't tried that, but the bacon, ...

    Rimsky-Korsakoffee House

    2 reviews

    A quirky Portland favorite, this music-themed coffee house is famous for its good coffee, delicious treats, and smattering of fun-house tables that turn or rise imperceptibly while you dine and chat. For added fun, don't mention the tables to your companions when you take them there and watch their faces when, halfway through their sentence, they realize their coffee cup ...

    Ole Latte Cafe

    2 reviews

    My Son now takes the bus from Home to School and back. It's a bit of a convoluted route that has him change buses downtown and near this Ole Latte Coffee outpost. This is where the Kid orders is Mocha, chats up with guy behind the counter, and where he insisted that I go, see, and meet. I really enjoyed ...

    Stumptown Coffee Roasters

    2 reviews

    A trip to Portland is incomplete without Stumptown coffee. This location on SE Belmont is relatively low-key, with nice exposed brick decor and a more neighborhoody vibe than downtown. It also has the advantage of being three blocks from my relatives' house. ;)

    Pizzicato Pizza - Hillsdale

    2 reviews

    Gayle and I recently shared a few tasty slices of Pizzicato, while my son was next door at Paint Pots working on his ceramic dolphins. In fact, we were free to bring our food and drink over and watch the Kid enjoy himself. Pizzicato sells beer too, but wisely decided that next store carryout wasn't a good idea. I had ...

    McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House

    2 reviews

    There seems to be a McMenamins everywhere I look in Portland and I didn't previously know there was one in Hillsdale. I saw it a few Saturdays ago while my Son and I were having Lunch at Salvador Molly's next door. So the next day while the Kid was over at Other Worlds, I wandered for a solo lunch and ...

    Saburo's Sushi House Rstrnt

    Known to locals as one of the best sushi restaurants in town, this unassuming, unpretentious little eatery in Sellwood often features a line of waiting diners snaking around the block. But why stand outside for an hour when you can get pizza, pastries, and bar food around the corner? Because the fish is fresh, the rolls are inventive (and substantial), ...

    Pine State Biscuits

    14 reviews

    Crazy huge biscuits piled with cheese, fried chicken, veggies or sausage are a calorie-bomb way to start off your morning, maybe before heading out of town to do some hiking along the scenic Columbia River Gorge. Not cheap, but definitely filling.

    Otto's Sausage Kitchen & Meat

    4 reviews

    Otto's is a strange combination of seemingly disparate parts - upscale wine bar, German deli, beer purveyor. But somehow, it all works. The space is all tall ceilings and dark wood furniture, with wine bottles lining one wall and deli counters lining the other. Treat yourself to ready-to-eat lunches of impossibly delicious (and large) sandwiches, pickles, and fresh deli-style salads, ...

    Junior's Cafe

    4 reviews

    This small, quirky brunch joint is a Southeast classic, with indie-retro decor and a menu full of fresh ingredients. Though great for vegans and vegetarians - with items like vegan french toast and vegetarian potato and vegetable scrambles - I've never heard a carnivore complain about a meal here. There are always delicious specials, but I love the basics - ...

    The Matador

    3 reviews

    This hipster dive - with food! - is like a budget beacon in the otherwise upscale Northwest neighborhood. The food is decent bar food - done Portland style (think black bean vegan burgers), the PBR is cheap, the lighting is dark, and there are all the usual dive bar fixin's: free pool, photo booth, jukebox, video gambling.
