new to Portland and no car

I'll be in Portland on business for two days with no car. Staying at The Nines at Pioneer Square.
I would like to find a place for dinner for a Monday night...not too expensive but great scene and great food. Seafood, vegetables a must. Walking distance woud be preferred.

Also, any spots for breakfast in the neighborhood, like a coffee/tea shop with great pastries?

  1. My three top picks in walking distance would be ten-01, Davis Street Tavern, and Clyde Common.

    Also, if you don't want to leave the building there is Urban Farmer and Departure. I have not been to either but have heard mostly good things about each.

    1. Check out Bijou for sit down breakfast, or Stumptown for pastries and breakfast.

      I think Ten-01 might be too fancy for you.

      You should check out Departure in your building - people are raving about it.

      You might also walk down to Davis Street Tavern and check it out, and then check out Ping a couple of blocks away and decide on either of them. Both have great solo dining at the bar or counter.
