Portland, Oregon in a Day

28 MILES | 1 hr 19 min | by Michael Stern

It would be possible to eat nothing but delicious breakfasts all day long in Portland, Oregon; and we don’t only mean the ne plus ultra offerings of Voodoo Doughnut and Annie’s Donut Shop. The original Original Pancake House remains a beacon of the highest quality breakfasts from sunup to sundown. But this tour goes beyond the morning meal to include Pacific Northwest signature seafood at Dan & Louis Oyster Bar and/or Jake’s Famous Crawfish, then perhaps an afternoon snack on artisan hot dogs at Otto’s Sausage Kitchen and, finally, the squarest of square meals at Huber’s.


Annie’s Donut Shop

Some of Portland's best donuts! Annie's cream puffs are light and fresh. Raspberry fritters are unctuous, fruity, and monumentally satisfying.


Voodoo Doughnut

Behold Voodoo Doughnut's bacon-maple bar -- a great all-in-one breakfast. Just one of many pastries that have made this shop in Portland, Oregon famous.


Original Pancake House

The 1st Original Pancake House in Portland serves the best pancakes imaginable. Everything is first rate, from rich cream for coffee to thick-cut bacon.


Dan & Louis Oyster Bar

A grand nautical restaurant from the early 20th century, Portland's Dan & Louis serves impeccable Northwest seafood, including a famous oyster stew.


Jake’s Famous Crawfish

Thick white tablecloths & jacketed wait-staff are emblems of a classic Pacific Northwest fish house. Jake's has been a Portland best-bet for over a century.


Otto’s Sausage Kitchen

Otto's of Portland, Oregon, makes some of the best hot dogs and sausages in the West and cooks them outdoors on a sidewalk grill. Great deli sandwiches, too.


Huber’s Café

A good square meal of turkey with all the fixins is the heart of Huber’s menu; but do not ignore the high-proof flaming Spanish coffee, served with a flourish.
