    Great ecclectic coffee shop in NE Portland.

    I love quirky coffee shops and this is one of them. Not the quirkiest, but quirky enough. Located in a former pharmacy, the old neon Rexall sign still sits above the facade.

    In addition to quality espresso drinks, which includes a special banana flavored coffee (of course), they also serve a variety of sandwiches and pastries (gluten free options available...of course).

    The atmosphere includes retro 1970s lighting, bar seating, couches, a few tables and local art for sale.

    All in all, its my favorite coffee shop in Alberta when I want to grab a cup of Joe and catch up on work or get lost in a book.

    Excellent food, friendly staff, disappointing atmosphere.

    This is a difficult review to write because if I weren't such an atmosphere snob, this place would easily be 4-5 stars.  And what is so strange is that I stopped in to Little T purely based on how cool it looked when I drove by it.  

    Sadly though, the atmosphere greatly disappointed.  It's a busy intersection, so it's a busy spot during breakfast/brunch hours, especially on the weekend.  And when this place gets busy, it gets LOUD.  Distractingly loud.  Furthermore, while the interior looks really cool from the outside, from the inside it just felt like a warehouse.  It reminded me those cafes inside museums.

    Other than that, the food was very good and the service was friendly.  I ordered a croque madame and it was delicious.  There were also an assortment of pastries and breads which also looked very tempting.  While I don't recall exactly how much my croque madame was, I do remember it being a little pricey though ($8 maybe?).

    At any rate, if you're looking for good food and friendly service, this could be the place for you.  I simply found the atmosphere to be too off putting to warrant coming back.

    Excellent coffee shop in SE Portland.  In a city bursting with excellent coffee houses, this is among one of my favorite for the following reasons:

    1) Awesome atmosphere in a converted restored building
    2) Delicious coffee
    3) Open late

    It's a great place to study as there are plenty of seating options to find a quiet corner or spread out on a big table.

    Awesome late night pizza option in the area.

    I first tried Hammy's recently after a late night at Night Light Lounge next door, and I'm really glad I stopped by.  It's not a sit-down restaurant, so you should expect to take your pizza to go.  They serve pizza by the slice and a two-topping slice cost $3.00 which was a great deal considering how substantial the slices were.  The slices were rectangular with thick crust and the cheese, sauce and toppings were not overly substantial which was fine by me.

    The pizza is good value for money and a great late night option if you're in the area.

    Love me some Muchas!

    This newly opened Muchas Gracias is located near the Clackamas mall and is already very busy.  For those not familiar, Muchas Gracias is a chain of Mexican "fast" food.  It's not the most authentic, it isn't the fastest, but it is a great option for Mexican food if you're in the area.  Come for a quick, cheap, delicious bite to eat, but don't come expecting atmosphere any better than a Taco Bell.

    For food recommendations, I suggest the breakfast burritos (around $5) or the Muchas Nachos (very filling).

    What a sad, sad little mall.  With store space at about 60% capacity, the interior acts as little more than a hallway between Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Home Depot.  And while I find those 3 stores useful, the actual mall is just a depressing waste of space.  I personally believe they should knock down the ceilling and many of the walls and convert it to an open atrium.

    If you have a dark sense of humor or are just too happy and want to feel depressed, I suggest coming at Christmas time and checking out the spectacularly sad mall Santa.  Just please do not come here seriously for your Santa photos!  Your kids deserve better.

    Elite ice cream venue for another Yelp Elite event.   The generous hosts served helping after helping of their delicious ice cream. Sample of flavors included: Stumptown coffee, Blood Orange, Coconut, Vanilla...the list went on. The verdict: all flavors knocked it out of the park. Superior flavor and texture. I especially like the Blood Orange.

    As if ice cream (on a cone and au natural) wasn't enough, they served cocktails with a scoop of sorbet and Cuban coffee. Both were out of this world.

    As if we weren't given enough, we were each given a pint of ice cream to take home!

    I decided to scope out Fifty Licks prior to the Yelp Elite event and I'm glad I dis. This is a superior ice cream stop in one of the best neighborhoods in Portland.

    Yo!  Fro-yo!

    Yup, this is one of those "now located on just about every corner" frozen yogurt places.  They have about 10 or more flavors for you to soft-serve yourself and they are all standard fro-yo quality.  Same thing goes for the huge assortment of candies/fruits/nuts/etc toppings.

    I give it an extra star because, despite it's dubious location on 82nd Ave., it manages to stay fairly clean and attract a clientele that is about as civilized as it gets in these parts.  Also!...they have board games (I saw Candyland and Jenga to name a few) so I thought that was cool...

    Full disclosure fromt he get-go:  This is a corporate lunch cafe located in the lobby of the Liberty Centre building.  This is not a destination for anyone looking for a nice atmosphere to go with their food.

    However, if you do work in the area, it's an inexpensive, no frills option for lunch.  They serve soups, sandwiches and wraps.  Some of the sandwiches are ready made in a fridge (they're cheapest, around $4 - $5), and other sandwiches can be made to order for around $5 to $7.  

    It's nothing to scream about, but it's cheap and if you're in the area, it's easy.

    However, if you're looking for a nice Portland style ambiance to your lunch, you'd best keep looking...

    Another slam dunk Yelp event put on by the ever magnanimous Don B.!

    Union Pine is a awesome party/event space located amidst the industrial SE side of Portland.  This event came with a DJ, food from Tamale Boy, Salt and Straw and Boke Bowl, and libations in the form of spiked punch and Burnside ale.

    One of the best things about these Yelp events is getting to discover new places.  I'll be sure to remember Union Pine the next time I am planning a party or a work event.  The venue is virtually a clean slate but has just enough of a hip foundation in the historic building to make it something you don't even have to decorate if you don't want to.

    Special thanks to Don B. and all the other Yelpers for making this another event to remember!
