How do you all feel about the Little Red Bike Cafe? I've seen it highlighted on the Food Network. Is it worth a try? The breakfasts sound esp. good and unique.

    I would not bother trying the Little Red Bike Cafe. My husband and I were just there and very disappointed. Lacking in charm and quality of food. Menu is very limited and sadly not worth it.

    We did visit Justa Pasta in Portland and it was VERY good. Fresh made pasta and great salads. A locals favorite place. Expect to stand in line.

        LRBC is great. nice lunch options as well. Make sure to try the ice creams.

            This is great news--it's a really nice place. I like that you can get a discount by riding your bike there.

          Just saw another Portland restaurant featured on Food Network the other day that also looked great, the Arleta Library Bakery Cafe. Looked like a great little neighborhood eatery.

            Great little place. They recently had a huge flood there and they are closed until further notice. Info on their blog: http://blog.littleredbikecafe.com/
