We are back! Our seven day trip has been a serious foodie adventure. We literally stuffed our face from Day 1 all the way to Day 7. Normally we would have 3 meals a day, but we managed to have 4-5 smaller meals a day to really get a sample of everything. Luckily we were able to burn off some of the calories through the many gorgeous hikes in the redwood parks.
So here is the 13 best places that we absolutely loved on our trip! Portland has numerous delicious spots, but we also discovered some hidden gems on our drive down the coastline!
1. Blossoming Lotus, Portland here
Live Nachos will blow your mind. Green bowl with tofu is delish, too!
2. Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Portland here
Dangerously addictive cold brew coffee with milk (be warned, chocolate flavor is not for the faint of heart!)
3. Prasad, Portland here
How can you go wrong with chili, quinoa and avocado in a bowl?
4. Salt & Straw, Portland here
5. Pearl Bakery, Portland here
Give me more dough! Try the fig and anise panini.
6. Bamboo Sushi, Portland here
Who knew that sustainable fish is crazy good. Order the green machine roll and albacore carpaccio and you will know what I mean.
7. Verde Cocina, Portland here
Their mole sauce makes everything taste amazing. The tofu mole is made with local tofu served with veggies over white bean garbanzo mash and doused in mole sauce!
8. La Perla Pizzeria, Eugene here
You don’t need love pesto to love Pizza Genovese. Pugliese is another winner with the right balance of Italian sausage, caramelized onions and mozzarella.
9. Tony’s Crab Shack, Bandon here
You will want to order more than one fresh crab sandwich here.
10. Vita Cucina Bakery, Crescent City here
Cuban sandwich never tasted so good. If there’s more room, get their house-made granola with Greek yogurt!
11. Goodlife Café & Bakery, Mendocino here
Good life happens when you bite into the breakfast burrito. Have a slice of sour cream cheese cake with blueberry sauce and a strawberry pecan scone to go, you won’t regret it.
12. Los Gallitos, Fort Bragg here
If you like fish tacos, you have to try their grilled salmon tacos. Get the guacamole on the side while you are at it.
13. Lombardi’s Gourmet Deli and BBQ, Petaluma here
A taste of #4 BBQ salmon and #6 Tri-tip makes me want to have them cater my next event.
And here are some places that didn’t make the best list but we still enjoyed them:
- Blue Star Donuts, Portland
- Pho Oregon, Portland
- Pono Meat, Portland
- Nature’s Corner Café, Florence
- Sushi Tao, Arcata
- Mayan Fusion, Fort Bragg
- Cowlicks Ice Cream, Fort Bragg
