My search for interesting and recommended places to dine in Portland is not complete by all means, but this is a list of my findings so far.
Little T – artisan bakery selling bread, pastry and dessert. Also serves breakfast and lunch.
Lovejoy Bakers – café serving breakfast and specialty sandwiches all day.
Blueplate Lunch Counter and Soda Fountain – serves lunch daily and also has a soda fountain menu serving milkshakes, sundaes, icecream floats and more.

Beaker and Flask – swanky restaurant serving American style cuisine and cocktails.
The Box Social – a neighborhood bar styling themselves as a “parlour bar” that serves artisanal cocktails, wine and beer.
