This quaint little Cafe offers a colorful brunch on weekends. The wait, however, is unusually long and the booths are very tight. The service, while friendly, did not stand out compared to similar establishments. At the end, when I ordered the check, I only received...More

I stumbled across Artemisia Cafe and was wonderfully surprised. It is unique as the group handling dinner is different from the group preparing breakfast, brunch and lunch. I found the dinner on par with any restaurant in Portland and the staff is attentive. It has...More

We came here off of a recommendation and it was worth it! We had a group of 7 so it took them 15 minutes to clean off an empty table to seat us, but not too bad to wait. They offer great brunch drinks and...More

He will certainly find a few delicious choices here.
Hello I'm currently a senior in high school and have a project. My project is on how to make a soufflé without it falling. I was wondering if anyone knew how so I could interview you. Any information is helpful, thank you have a great day.
