Hello friends,

Portland has been a place I had heard so much about and knew I needed to experience the culture and all that good food for myself. It also seems to be the spot that all the foodies/instagrammers are flocking to.

If you’re looking for a good list of places to go, look no further! Here are the places that I had a chance to go to and recommend:


  • Good Coffee

Hint: go during the day. Think.. perfect lighting. So. Much. Aesthetic.

  •  Case Study Coffee

Located in the heart of downtown. I loved the feel inside and my mocha was sooo good.


  • Blue Star Donuts

The flavors are so interesting but it works in their favor!  I got the passion fruit with cayenne pepper and cocoa nibs.. omg. Spicy, sweet, and perfection! There’s also a location at the airport if you run out of time.

  • Salt and Straw

Get the flight. You won’t regret it. Because.. one flavor isn’t enough 🙂

  • Wiz Bang Bar

Salt and Straw’s soft serve baby inside of Pine Street Market (hip cafeteria paradise). The shell is magical.


  • Grassa

Literally the best Italian food ever. Hand-made pasta is SO GOOD!

  • Pine State Biscuits

Because apple butter. YUMMM. I got the Chatsfield and it was so so so good. Seriously, the bacon was the best I ever had.


  • Multnomah Falls and the Columbia Gorge

Because.. #PNW. I couldn’t stop being in awe of how different it was from the nature of California. So much green. Am I outdoorsy yet? 🙂

  • Departure Bar

That view though. I would definitely recommend coming on the weekend as they don’t normally open up the balcony during the week.

Ready for my next trip already…

    Did you try any of the speciality lattes at Good coffee? They make the most unique flavor blends.

      Yes! I tried the vanilla latte but there’s so many other unique flavors!

    I love Portland! Have you been to the salt and straw here in LA?! It’s also a very nice place for pictures 🙂

    Hey there! Love this blog post, I’m visiting Portland this winter and I can’t wait for all the food! Grassa looks amazing and there is this other place I found called cheese & crack that looks pretty awesome too. How far was Multnomah Falls? Do you recommend renting a car?

      hey girl! yes, it’s at least an hour’s drive. We took the tour bus which was so worth it in my opinion 🙂 Enjoy Portland!
