On our last full day in Portland, Ryan and I started our day with coffee and breakfast with the restaurant right below our hotel room at the Ace – Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen! I had the cheese blintzes and ooooomg heavenly!
After breakfast we walked along Stark St. to Tanner Goods. Ryan had been eyeing their leather camera strap for a few months and decided to invest! It’s so beautiful and crafted exactly the way he wanted – he’s very happy with it! Portland just kept getting better and better!
Of course after a bit more wandering, it was time to eat again! Next food cart we wanted to try – so we walked back to Food Cart central on SW 10th and Alder to the Grilled Cheese Grill! I tried the simple, but oh so cheesy “The Gabby” with a side of tomato soup (exactly the way it should be enjoyed) and Ryan tried :The B.L.T.G.C.” – two very happy campers after that lunch!
We walked around all of downtown practically, walked by the LONG perpetual line at Voodoo Donuts, snapped the “Keep Portland Weird” mural, explored the Pearl District, (picked up my new baby Rockie at Nordstrom – SO happy with him), visited the incredible Powell’s Books (wow books) and ate the cutest and most delicious little burgers at Little Big Burger! We brought back some of the spicy catsup they use – Camden’s Catsup – best ketchup I’ve ever had! Phewf!
We finished our trip with a walk to the Burnside bridge at night to photograph the White Stag sign from the bridge!
Ryan and I (and our tastebuds) thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Portland! We are already planning our next visit to see the East side (the land across the bridges)! Thank you to everyone who made it so special!! xoxo
