I find myself walking through Powell Butte quite often. I love its old apple orchards, flat meadows and incredible view of Mt. Hood. On a clear day, 5 mountains can be seen from the park. The place is an extinct volcano and Portland’s second largest park after Forest Park.

Behind the Museum Cafe is a Japanese cafe, very bright and open with charming design. It is usually pretty quiet, and they have a great menu with onigiri, Japanese tea cakes, matcha and hojicha lattes, teas, mochi, etc. The space is also a shop, they have ceramics, kimono, cards and other small items. It is next door to Canoe, a favorite design shop.

I love stopping by the Skyline after a hike through Forest Park. They have an amazing view, a brick BBQ pit, horse shoes, ping pong, and a REAL jukebox.

Cool gallery and store on Burnside. They keep a pretty consistent calender of events, always worth checking out. Some purchases include a mix tape CD of fine taste.

The best sushi and the cheapest, which normally doesn’t make sense, but it really is. It’s a train too so it’s easy to grab a seat and eat whatever you like for as long as you like. Classic 80’s hits help wash it all down. Probably my most frequented restaurant in Portland.

Home to the best breakfast burrito in the world. But their hours are unpredictable and they often run out of eggs (possible?) early and have to close. So get there early or plan for a weekday visit.
