The seating is quite limited inside, especially as sitting outside isn't really an option during the winter months.

From Our Editors

When her two sons came back from Europe raving about the traditional liege sugar waffles, Mary did what any good mom and professional pastry chef would do: she learned how to make them. But Mary wasn't content with mere imitation––she wanted her waffles to be something unique, and so she spent several weeks crafting her own super-secret recipe that blended Belgian-style traditions with hard-to-source ingredients. After all that work, she knew her waffles were made for more than just maple syrup, and a slew of waffle-based dishes was born, incorporating toppings that include everything from thick-cut bacon and housemade salsa to scoops of small-batch ice cream and Guittard chocolate. Soon, she began serving the treats out of a converted Dutch-style door window in her husband’s Bread & Ink Café, and her waffles quickly gained enough acclaim to be featured in Bon Appetit, as well as an episode of the TV show Portlandia.

Now operating from two locations, the staff still gives diners the option to devour their waffles on the go, but welcomes guests to linger longer in the warmth of covered indoor- and outdoor-dining spaces. There, steaming cups of locally-roasted Kobos coffee and glasses of blackberry-basil lemonade help wash down the waffley goodness, while a full line of frozen take-home waffles await to be warmed in home toasters or Mrs. Butterworth's loving embrace.

Portland Restaurant Guide

Portland is renowned for its great craft beers, easy access to dramatic nature, independent spirit, excellent live music scene, and generally laid-back lifestyle. One of the city’s best kept secrets, though, is its outstanding culinary offerings. Portland restaurants serve up a wide variety of cuisines, and their flavorful offerings keep residents well satiated. From fine dining to food carts, there’s something in Portland to suit everyone’s taste.

Dining in Portland is incredibly diverse. If there’s one aspect of the city’s culinary scene that really stands out, it’s the food carts. Downtown is home to a whole court of food carts, serving up flavors from every corner of the globe. The term “food cart” can be a bit misleading though, since many of these small kitchens housed in trailers, like E-san Thai, Flogene’s Home Cookin’, and the Frying Scotsman, serve up the kind of sophisticated dishes normally reserved to sit-down restaurants.

Eating well in Portland also includes visiting the city’s gourmet dining spots. For haute French cuisine, Le Pigeon in Lower Burnside is the place to be. Andina in the Pearl District has mouth-watering tapas covered and Caffe Mingo in the Alphabet District is among Portland’s top Italian restaurants. One of the great features of dining in a fine restaurant in Portland is that it still retains a more casual feel than any other American city. It’s just great food without any pretentiousness.

No guide to the Portland food scene would be complete without mention of the city’s fantastic brew pubs. Portland is the birthplace of the microbrewery movement and some of the country’s most beloved beers are produced here. Deschutes, BridgePort, and Rogue are just a few of the brewpubs in town that serve up delectable eats with their flavorful sudsy creations. The Portland mainstay McMenamin’s can also be found in practically every one of the city’s neighborhoods, meaning good food and great beer are never far away.
