Recs for Portland restaurants - travelling with 6 and 4 year old girls
We are going to be in Portland and staying at Park Lane Suites (809 SW King Ave) and would love some recs for good spots to eat with our 4 and 6 year old. 6 year old has a peanut allergy so asian restaurants are out (except for sushi, which we can navigate around..)
Also, I would love a rec for a great cup of coffee in Portland.
i would recommend ristretto roasters (multiple locations) for a good cup of coffee. if you're looking for a tasty pastry with your coffee, i recommend jim & patty's coffee on fremont.
i can't say much about food with kids since i have none, but if you're planning on taking in some local craft beer spots, laurelwood brewery and hopworks brewery are both VERY kid-friendly (play areas, video games, kiddie food specials, etc. etc.)
There is an earlier thread on this but many of the places mentioned are on the east side of town. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7066...
Thinking of West side /downtown restaurants:
Kenny and Zukes
KENS ARTISAN BAKERY
BARISTA on NW 14th and Glisan
Blue Moon Ice Cream in the Pearl
Hot Lips Pizza (locally owned chain
)Le Happy - A Creperie - I don't know how kid friendly the enviro is but the menu is broad so finding something for everyone shouldn't be a prob.
1011 NW 16th Ave, Portland, OR 97209
Hot Lips Pizza
2211 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214
Just across the Columbia River in Vancouver is a restaurant called Beaches "on the water" with great views and it is a hit with kids (treasure chest, make your own desert, etc...).
