TOP 3 CAFÈ IN PORTLAND

For me, I personally visit those 3 the most, and if you interested in which one you should come, here is my small tier-list:

1. Dirty Lettuce

Kim and Alkebulan Moroski of Mississippi’s Dirty Lettuce offer an all-vegetarian southern menu, including spicy BBQ ribs and homemade seitan fried catfish. Rotating side choices include candied yams, mini cornbread muffins and jambalaya. Messy salad is often sold out, so vegans eager to try lean Cajan and Creole dishes should make online orders ahead of time to be picked up in the Shady Pines food basket.

2. Epif

Built around a giant tree trunk, Epif Restaurant serves a vegan version of South American dishes traditionally rich in meat and seafood. It serves empanada with homemade aji verde salsa, pimentones rellenos (stuffed pickled bell peppers) and potato rolls with causa puree. The colorful dining room has yet to open, but the website has a takeaway menu and delivery of Epif’s greatest hits from Thursday through Sunday, accompanied by an extensive wine list.

3. Modern Times

This San Diego brewery invites you to dine in social isolation under Randy “Macho Man’s” giant Savage piñata that floats above the ceiling of the former Belmont Fermentorium. To complement the hazy IPA and tropical sour, the all-vegan gastropub-style menu includes a double burger, seitan asada burrito and smoky ranch wedge salad. The online store offers a special selection of beer, coffee and social media products.
