Are there any great little finds in the Port Jeff area? I will be there this weekend and need some ideas.

    Salsa Salsa is a pretty good place. It's not an authentic Mexican restaurant, but they always have really good specials and their soups are amazing. Their portions are huge too. A good deal for the money. Their website is salsasalsa.net

    The Tiger Lily cafe is great. It's a bit small, but during this time of the year it shouldn't be too busy. They make excellent sandwhiches. I love their provencal sandwhich. They also make really great fresh fruit and veggie juices. Their website is tigerlilycafe.com

      Went to a conference last summer in Port Jeff and had some decent Italian food-a nice tasting menu if I recall, at Ruvo:

        We were totally unimpressed with Salsa Salsa.
        Our favorite place right now is The Pie, coal oven pizza and everything else Italian. People have told me they love Pasta Pasta across the street, but I've never been myself.
        Used to love Costa de Espana, are they still there? Very continental feel.

          We ate in Costa de Espana about a year ago. I had the Pealla and it was like eating sawdust mixed with fishy leftovers. Years ago it was good.

          Parking in PJ is a pain and in some places you have to pay for parking.

            That's sad, they used to be the best, but I haven't been there in years now. The traffic and parking are really a deterrent in PJ.

          Try Tara Inn. While you shouldn't expect much from here, it's one of the better cheap options in Port Jeff.
