Whitney C's City Tips

  • Some parking meters accept credit cards, while others do not. Bring some quarters just in case.
  • Compared to most cities, it's fairly easy to find parking in Portland. You'll be glad to have your car with you so that you can explore!
  • Tip 15-20% in restaurants if gratuity has not already been added to the bill.

    Whitney C Says:

    Ask anyone about good food in Portland, and coffee will be at the top of the list every time. Stumptown is a Portland original and has spread to many other parts of the country since its beginning. Stop by for a delicious cup of joe and a little taste of the city's coffee smarts.

    Tips
    • If you are at all a fan of iced coffee, do it. Stumptown is known for their cold brew.
    • Chances are, the line will be long. They move it along pretty well, but be prepared to wait for a little while.

    In my opinion, the second must-try coffee spot — besides native-gone-famous Stumptown — is Case Study Coffee. My aunt brought me here and I was immediately hooked. Really cool vibe and interior with some really great coffee.

    • I ordered the chai and it was fantastic. Next time, I decided I'd try the "Fleur de Sel Dark Caramel."
    • Even in the middle of a weekday, we barely got a table. If you see an open one, grab it! Or sit around and stalk someone who looks like they're leaving.

    Whitney C Says:

    Voodoo is another one of Portland's food gems. Chances are, if you have a friend who's visited, he or she won't shut up about it. Yes, your friend is obnoxious, but seriously — it's for good reason! These are some of the best and most unique donuts you will ever have the joy of laying eyes (and teeth) on.

    Tips
    • The Voodoo Doll Donut is kind of the classic, but you definitely have to try the Maple Bacon. I also sampled the Oreo, and it was amazing.
    • The line will be long — it always is. Just suck it up and wait for your donut(s). It will be worth it.

    Yet another Portland special, McMenamins is a chain restaurant like you've never seen before. They are everywhere! ... But each one has been created from an old historic building of some kind. This one was a school at one point, and will give you a great taste of the McMenamins experience.

    When I visited my family in Portland, they brought me here for breakfast the very first day. It was obvious pretty quickly why everyone raves about Screen Door! Southern-style breakfast (think biscuits and gravy, chicken and waffles, etc.) in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. So good.

    The Rimsky-Korsakoffee House definitely goes along with the whole 'Keep Portland Weird' thing. This place is bizarre. It's supposedly haunted, and there are lots of funny gimmicky things like moving tables and such. If you're looking for a cup of tea or coffee and a very 'Portland' experience, this is your place.
