PDX - what's good and open all afternoon?
Planning to drive down to Portland from Seattle in a few weeks - sometimes it takes us too long to get going and I arrive in the midafternoon, too late to catch lunch at any of the spots on my list. Usually end up at a McMenamin's. Any superior options for a bite to eat in the deadzone between lunch and dinner? Also interested in late night suggestions.
Navarre is open late lunch.
Or for something more basic yet still excellent, try Grand Central Bakery for soup & sandwich. I think it's better than the ones in Seattle.
Several excellent carts on SW Alder/9th are open late afternoon.
Some places do go from a lunch menu to a limited afternoon menu while the prep for dinner. They'll be open, but choices will be limited.
Evoe has been slammed in recent days to a write-up, but is quite nice in mid-afternoon after the rush.
Here are some pics I took at Evoe:
