Southern / Soul Food Restaurant
“Amazing Brunch. As seen on TV. They open at 9am on the weekends, get there at 8:45 am or else you will be waiting an hour or more! The food is so yummy!”

Rock Club
“American fast-food style burger in a bar/restaurant with a nice outdoor patio. Most pubs in the neighborhood offer good, hefty burgers with plenty of dressings, this is a simpler, slightly smaller one, but solid and satisfying. This restaurant is attached to the lovely Mississippi Studios music venue.”

New American Restaurant
“ One of the best breakfast/brunch/dinner spots in the neighborhood and an easy 15min walk. There is almost always a wait but it's quick... walk around the hood while your table awaits.”

“One of the first theaters in the country to offer dining with your movie, you can order a beer and a meal to enjoy while you watch your movie here. The Bagdad is utterly unique!”

Indian Restaurant

Cafes

Garden
“One of Portland's coolest and most beautiful spots in a sketchy area. The Chinese Gardens are a full block radius oasis in Chinatown and so worth the visit. They have the Tao of Tea teahouse inside and you can easily spend a couple of hours relaxing and wandering and taking photos and having tea. Just be aware that Chinatown is not a nice area. It's an intriguing contrast. ”

Café
“Ok. Ignore this photo. Not a good representation of their cuisine. Imagine comfort food as comforting as you've ever had. Amazing breads. Sumptuous salads. Wholesome soups. Grits. Fluffly pancakes. We don't go here often because it's hard to get into, but if you're patient and want to experience amazingly prepared just good food, go here. And check out their instagram. ”

Donut Shop
“This popular coffee and donut cafe specializes in fried-to-order mini-donuts and chai drinks. There is often a line, but it’s so worth the wait (plus, waiting in line for food is a quintessential Portland experience). The miniature size of their donuts are great for kids and if you go within 7 days of your birthday you get a FREE dozen donuts! Located about 2 miles south .”

Cuban Restaurant
“Awesome atmosphere. Great food. Incredible desserts! Ask for a Café Bombon. ”

Coffee Shop
“The place that started the third-wave coffee craze. They pull a great shot of espresso and don't have the hoity-toity attitude so many other fancy places have. Free wifi, as well.”
  • 105 locals recommend

“Delicious local bistro serving French breakfast with an impressive selection of pastries, baked goods, and desserts. They are very popular for brunch, so get there early or expect a wait.

Pie Shop
“A low-key coffee shop with quick breakfast items, and award winning pies (you can't help but have a slice of banana cream, really!). In the heart of Alberta Street shops. The music is a bit loud, and seating can be difficult to find, but if you go at the right time...”
