Red-walled, candle-lit hipster hangout. Varied menu with cheap and better-than-average bar food makes carnivores and vegetarians happy and full. Good looking waitstaff serves up some mean cocktails too. Watch for daily specials.
The Belmont Station, while not actually on Belmont street, is a great one-stop shop for imported and local (Oregon) microbrews, ciders and wines. Seriously, the selection is mind-boggling. And if that weren't enough, the Bier Café allows you to sit, relax, and sample some of the finest the region has to offer while supping on deli or panini sandwiches, soup, or salads. The selection is small but consists of classics like turkey, tuna salad, the Reuben (substitute tempeh for no extra charge!), and more. More pluses: Stumptown coffee, Grand Central bread, organic local produce and recycled containers.

A comfortable, homey, kinda grungy throwback in a neighborhood full of boutiques and wine bars. Second-hand furniture, retro-kitsch decor, a bunch of beers on tap, make for a perfectly good place for meeting friends or throwing back a cold one before (or after) a movie at the Laurelhurst. The food is simple, decent and won't eat a hole in your wallet. Entertainment is provided by the jukebox as well as live bands and DJs.
