Elephants Delicatessen

Before everyone was doing gourmet food that was either imported from abroad, or imported from surrounding farms, there was Elephants Delicatessen. Yes, while you can find these claims across the city now, it was Elephants that was at the vanguard, doing it since 1979. Due to the hard work, and good food done by Elephants, it is now a Portland household name. Then again, its satellite locations all over the city and its surrounding area in places such as downtown, Lake...

Ken’s Artisan Bakery

Ken’s Artisan Bakery is one of the standard bearers of baked goods in Portland. In high-class restaurants across the city, you’ll often see the words “bread from Ken’s Artisan Bakery” printed proudly on menus. Sure, these restaurants could try to have their own homemade bread. They probably have cooks on staff that are talented enough to do so. Then, of course, they taste the stuff from Ken’s Artisan Bakery, and decide making their own isn’t worth it. Why...

Thai Orchid

Chances are, if you’ve left Portland proper and gone out into the suburbs, you may have seen a Thai Orchid before. The chain is found all over the Portland metro area, as far to the west as Hillsboro, as far to the south as Salem, as far to the east as West Linn, and as far north as Vancouver. Yes, even though Thai Orchid now has a far regional reach, it hasn’t forgot where it came from. Indeed, it has its roots right in Northwest Portland, in a small hole in the...

Whole Foods

Everywhere you go across the country you’ll now see numerous organic grocery stores. Whole Foods is a huge reason behind this. Sure, Portland’s always had its locally sourced organic grocery stores, but in other places, such as Middle America, Whole Foods was among the first wave of organic food they had ever seen. Soon enough, these stores were everywhere, like Starbucks. And like Starbucks, Whole Foods encouraged competition by inspiring even more organic specialty...

Cool Moon

Here’s an easy way to tell that a place is truly high class: it has more places to buy gelato than places to buy ice cream. When you walk around the Pearl District, it almost feels like there’s a gelateria on every corner, yet when you want a scoop of good old-fashioned American ice cream, you’re completely out of luck. Yes, the runny pistachio ice cream from gelaterias is amazing, but sometimes there’s nothing more refreshing than a waffle cone stacked high...

Lovejoy Bakers

Sometimes, it seems that there are as many bakers and bakeries in the Pearl District as there are boutiques. The newest one of all these bakeries is Lovejoy Bakers, located right on the corner of Northwest Lovejoy Street and Tenth Avenue. Unlike many of the other bakeries that dot the Pearl District, though, Lovejoy Bakers is more than just a strict place to buy either bread or coffee. It really is a fully-fledged cafe, with a bustling interior to match. No matter if...

Sniff Dog Hotel

One great thing about living in Northwest Portland is that you can be totally assured that you will never be without a place to leave your dog when you go out of town. Here’s a fun fact: Northwest Portland actually has more dog hotels than human hotels. If a friend of yours visits, he or she will have to stay in downtown, but their pooch will be right at your doorstep. Still, with as many dog hotels in the area, it’s difficult to choose the right one. Sniff Dog Hotel...

The Canvas

It’s a formula that you may be surprised hasn’t been done more before. Portland’s a city that loves to combine beer with some of its favorite activities. You see that in large collective bike rides to brewpubs. There are the record stores now popping up that do double duty as bars. A general way to improve just about any activity in Portland is suggested as this: “Put a beer on it!” That’s what makes the Canvas so surprising. It combines two of Northwest...

Pizza Oasis

The area of Northwest Portland that consists of Northwest 21st Avenue and Northwest 23rd Avenue may be the city’s most underrated spot to get pizza. Between representatives from chains such as Pizza Schmizza, bars such as Silver Dollar Pizza Company, and city-renowned award winners like Escape from New York and Ken’s Artisan Bakery, you have plenty of options to satiate you need for mozzarella and tomato sauce. One of the oldest tenured of all of these pizza places...

Ringside Steakhouse

The steakhouse is that example of classic American cuisine that suddenly finds itself on the endangered list, especially in Portland. As international all inclusiveness and a focus on healthier meats and vegetarianism and veganism have grown in the city, it almost seems like the days of red meat’s supremacy are numbered. Then you go to Ringside Steakhouse and remember why steak is considered the pinnacle of all of the meats. Steak, when done right, is a meal that you...

Toast and Pho

Isn’t it wonderful when you discover two things that you never thought would go well together but they actually do? The classic example of this is fried chicken and waffles, but there are other great ones out there such as peanut butter and bananas, as well. Well, Toast and Pho wants to add another unexpected combination to that list: breakfast and Vietnamese food. Yes, you’ve probably never seen those two together in one place before. The way that Toast and Pho...
