We come here to look for art and furniture,. It is in the South East section of Portland and the Bohemian' Bohemia of Portland, which has worked hard to become the weirdest part of Portland. As far as food goes…Meh…nothing special, everything weird, not a place to go for fine dining but rather trendy , non mexican taco's and vegetarian,... More

Hipster street packed with vintage shops, cafes and eateries. Great place for a stroll if you're in the neighbourhood. Don't miss Blue Star, Powell's Bookshop, Greater Trumps and the growler shop.

Cool if that's what you want. Decent small restaurants but most were dirty. Not worth returning unless you're 25-35 in age.

I love this area of the city and all that it has to offer. Everything is so diverse-everyone is friendly and all the shops offer something different for every taste. Plenty of places to eat- I stayed at the Hawthorne House while I was in town and just loved the environment.

This neighborhood in SE Portland, edged by Mt. Tabor park, is simply the best place to be in the entire world. I live in Tacoma, but were it not for family obligations, would be living in Hawthorne. Just go there, you'll find out for yourself.

We've been staying in the Sellwood district and the cashier at the local New Leaf asked what we were planning to do during our visit to Portland. She suggested a trip to Hawthorne (in the 30s cross streets). I'm glad we took her advice. There were plenty of funky little shops (and upscale shoe stores) for the shoppers in our... More

This is a funky little neighbourhood in Portland. I would recommend you focus on the area around the Bagdad Theatre (or between 35th street and Ceasar Chavez avenue) where most of the best shops are located. There is of course two Powell's book stores, but also a great toy store, a great wine shop, a few wonderful shops with interesting... More

So many great little shops, especially thrift shops. And the people watching here is superb. This is the Portland we were expecting (mostly from watching the show Portlandia).

Eclectic, fun, different and just a great place to shop for things you've never seen. And the people watching is the best there is.
