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.
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…
