The second location for this venerable Portland indie coffee house. Anna Bannanas is well-known for their superior coffees and teas, and they also have a small but not insignificant menu of sandwiches, wraps, soups & salads, and spreads & bread.
It's Portland's very own slice of highbrow Peruvian cuisine with flairs of a Japanese twist here and there. Much of the menu comes in three sizes (small, medium, large) so you don't have to drop rent IF you don't want to. But beware, because it easy to get carried away, especially with a menu full of creatively-concocted seafood dishes like mahi mahi and scallops, as well as spicy meats like pork in adobo sauce. The also have several vegan, vegetarian and gluten free dishes, tempting even dedicated wheat-eating carnivores.
This larger Grand Central features all the fresh-baked rustic goodies as well as homemade soups, sandwiches and coffees. Dine in the spacious cafe space or out on the patio.
Serving the Saint John's area for over a half century, Tulip cranks out quality homemade pastries, pies, cakes, cookies and breads. Old time goodies like bear claws, bismarks and cocunut cream pies make the drive and the intense sugar buzz well worth it.
The John Street Cafe does one thing and one thing only: brunch. In this case, "brunch" refers to both breakfast AND lunch. It sticks to what it knows, keeps it simple and does it well. The eggs are fresh, steaming, and not over-done. The pancakes are big and the sandwiches satisfying. Give it a try if you're around the St. Johns neighborhood, or drive out there for something a little different.
Possibly the best selection of movies to rent on the whole planet!
Up front (the Tea Zone) is a quaint little beverage joint with some of the best tea selections in town, including tea lattes and the fun and fabulous bubble tea! Yummy tea-time treats, like pannini sandwiches, quiche and tarts, are also in stock for your liking. The Camellia Lounge in back is swanky, comfortable and features a full-service bar with specialty tea-infused cocktails, marTEAnis and live music.
A charming, airy bistro that caters to those of discerning tastes. Mother's makes everything on their impressive menu of classic "mom food" from scratch, and the accolades keep rolling in. The adjoining bar is plush and cozy, offering a limited version of their menu and some stiff drinks. It can get pretty busy during dinner and their weekend brunch so reservations might be a good idea.
