    Amazing sandwiches. I crave them often.

    They use New Cascadia baguettes for their gluten free option -- delicious and I don't feel like I am missing out.

    I've tried their tuna and their grilled asparagus, love them both. Really good pickles. Potato salad is delish.

    I almost always do the half with potato salad. The whole sandwich is GIANT.

    My only complaint would be about the hours -- wish they were open earlier in the day and on Mondays.

    Also, I recommend picking up to go. I only live a few blocks away and the one time I did delivery because I couldn't leave my house, it too a really long time and was soggy.

    Still giving 5 stars because I love the sandwiches that much.

    Love this place!

    I had tried to get my hair bleached to platinum by another stylist at a different location and had ended up with a terrible yellow color. It was so bad I wore a hat for two weeks until a friend suggested I go to Kim at Logik to get it fixed. I was SO impressed that Kim was able to hit exactly the color I wanted and for much less money than I was charged for the mistake!

    I kept going to Kim for color and cuts-- loving how she was so good at making my vague cut ideas awesome.

    Then, after a while I got tired of the platinum color. I went back to Kim and asked her to help me get back to my natural color. My hair is a dark blondish color -- not something easy -- and she hit that perfectly too!

    She does a great job with unique hair styles. I'll say something to her like, "um, do you think we could like shave a part over here?" And she'll totally go for it and make it look great.

    Reasonable prices, too!

    Thanks Kim!

    Loved our trip to this pumpkin patch. Despite the  s l o w  traffic getting there from the bridge, we still had a great time. They handled the volume of people very well.

    Mostly I wanted to write a review to let people know that it is dog friendly, which was not clearly communicated on their web site. We brought our two pups and there were a lot more around -- all on leashes, of course!

    Fun times, great pumpkins, some tasty carnival-type food, and our pups!

    I went into this whole situation with a fair share of skepticism about the whole process. In the end I am very happy about this, due to what I experienced. I'm going to relate my whole (long) story so you can make up your own mind about this place.

    I went to the Gresham location. I stopped in because I was in the area to look at a truck at a different dealership. While I was there I thought I might as well see what they had.

    Originally I was looking for a small truck with four doors. However, they had a huge Dodge RAM that ran on Diesel. Feeling happy about the gas mileage, I thought I'd see how it drove (but expecting to not like it's hugeness.)

    Here's where I ran into the first issue. The truck wouldn't start! They laughed and said that the dome light probably got left on the night before. They tried to jump it, couldn't jump it. Bad sign, right? I waited around until they figured out it needed a double-jump since it has two batteries. Just as I decided to leave, they finally got it going.

    My girlfriend and I jumped in for a test drive. The guy let us drive down the highway, playing on his phone and seeming generally disinterested. It drove nicer than I expected, for sure. We both kinda fell in love with the fact that we could have a huge strong truck that wouldn't be as terrible for the environment.

    When we got back I asked if they would be okay with me taking it to a mechanic. They said I could borrow it for the day if I left my car for collateral. So, we did. I took it to a shop that charged me $95 for a full inspection.

    The truck was in good shape, they said, except for two weak batteries, a frayed serpentine belt, and a broken air conditioner. There was some other internal engine part that had a slight leak, but the woman said that was not something to worry about.

    I also looked up the car fax -- which led me to find out that the truck had been in one accident, something they had not mentioned at the dealership (but also, I had not asked about.) The mechanic said he saw a tiny little knick on the front frame, but nothing that would effect the safety of the truck's frame. Must have been a very small accident.

    We took the truck back. I felt stressed out about the whole situation. Then again, I wanted to be done looking. I asked what they could do about the price. They went down $1,000 from a sticker price that wasn't that far off Kelley Blue Book. They also promised to fix everything the mechanic pointed out, plus some cosmetic issues (broken cup holder, missing light cover, missing seat belt cover.) They said they could do this, or go down $1,000 more as is. I took the former offer. I might have been able to bargain more, but I was fine with that agreement.

    I had a class to teach that night, the salesmen ran around the store like crazy after the point at which I decided to buy. They had me out of there -- deal done -- in less than half an hour. Pretty amazing.

    I went back the next morning and finished the paperwork. They sold me a Warranty Solutions used car coverage contract. This is where things got really shady.

    I asked Matt, the financial guy, if he was selling me the Plus or Standard package. He replied, "oh, I would only sell the plus package." Cool, right? When I got home I noticed that the warranty document he slipped in with all the other paperwork said standard on it.

    I had to go back anyhow, so I brought that along and asked him about it. He said, "oh, we have this problem sometimes where the paperwork prints out that way even though you have a plus contract." He then took it, checked the "plus" box and initialed it.

    I thought that was a little weird, so I called Warranty Solutions directly. They said I, in fact, had a "standard" contract.

    I called Matt. He acted surprised and said he would fix it right away. I called to check with Warranty Solutions the next day. They had no record of him calling, although they did have record of my previous call. I called Matt again. He told me he was waiting for them to get back to him.

    I won't bore you with more details, but I believe i called Seaport Auto 9 times total and Warranty Solutions 6 times. Every time Matt was friendly and said he was working on it.  Finally asked to speak to his manager, Kim, and she has FINALLY corrected this. She cancelled my old contract and issued another one via email.

    The truck has been great so far. I did buy two new back tires because one split a bit, but that was just because it's an older truck.

    Seaport Auto on Milwaukee did all of the repairs I was promised in a timely manner. Christie Rose was awesome to work with.

    So yeah... three stars because I love the truck. But man, all those calls about the warranty were super stressful and if I hadn't checked on it post-sale I would have been sold something less than what they told me.

    Also, I would NOT buy a car or truck from them without having a mechanic check it first.

    It's a decent donut shop with many yummy varieties and waaay too long of a line. Not sure how they managed to get so much far-reaching hype! If you love donuts, it's worth the stop but try the SE location to skip the line.

    After trying Thai Dish, I can't comprehend how it could have an overall rating of 4 stars.

    The woman serving us was very friendly, no points off there, but the food was bad. Overall it was quite obvious that it was very old and reheated. If I had gone to dinner and then reheated it a week later I would have expected what they served.

    Brown rice -- crunchy, either undercooked or stale (maybe both.)

    Pad Thai -- much too sweet. Noodles clumping together in masses that I had to cut through because they would not come apart otherwise.

    Tofu -- tasted like a refrigerator.

    Green curry -- vegetables were probably picked some months ago. Such a disappointment when it's the middle of summer and everything is available fresh.

    I will not be returning!

    p.s. I heard a woman at the table next to us complaining that something in her dish was "off." The server agreed to bring out something else. I don't know why we were polite, we should have done the same.

    I'm very happy with the quality of New Cascadia's baked goods and coffee.

    Their cupcakes are a delicious treat. (I prefer their vegan cupcakes to their non-vegan cupcakes, even though I am not vegan.) The cinnamon bread is delicious. I take a loaf and toast it at home with extra cinnamon and honey or butter. If you try the vegan pizza, I recommend having them add the vegan cheese. The baguettes are awesome and those can be hard to find gluten-free.

    I love that they offer rice and hemp milk as alternatives. Their mocha's are delicious, though I have to ask them to make them not too sweet or they can be undrinkable for me.

    I would give them 5 stars for food, however they lose a star because of the service.

    It's remarkably slow and frustrating if they are at all busy. During quiet times, it's better.

    This is the best Ethiopian I've found...  I've tried many places throughout the Bay Area.

    I think it is family owned... the owner is incredibly sweet. If you become a regular he will treat you as though you are one of the family.

    Great all the way around. And totally reasonable prices.

    I went to get work done by Rocio Arteaga at Diving Swallow.

    She is amazingly talented, super sweet, and enjoyable to work with.

    I was nervous, despite telling myself I shouldn't be. She put me at ease by giving me some tea and letting me know that she wasn't in a hurry.

    It was awesome to lay there, while looking at her beautiful bird drawings, talking, etc. I felt really taken care of. She's so gentle and precise; I could tell I was in good hands.

    Best of all-- I love the final piece. It's exactly what I wanted.

    Thanks Rocio! I think I might be back for more...
