Sellwood is one of my favorite places in Portland. The unfortunate part is everyone else seems to think so, and it can be crowded on a sunny weekend day. There are tons of shops and antique stores and restaurants. I quite enjoy Tea Chai Te, Camamu soap, and Grand Central Bakery.

I love meeting friends in Sellwood/Moreland neighborhood for lunch, coffee, and/or dessert. Parking can sometimes be a challenge, but is worth a bit of driving around the block. Great places to eat and shop. Old Portland homes are fun to see. People are very friendly here!

The Sellwood Area is a perfect example of Old Portland. It's just fun to drive through to look at the style of homes. For those who like to do Antique shopping there are several places that you can wander through and find a plethora of items that might suite your fancy. Be sure and check out the Candy House. You...

Nice place but really easy to get dirt in your shoes. I go there for tennis class. And next that is a circit and swimming class! Nice sunny place for your kid to learn out doors!

Sellwood is just "okay" and not anything special really.I wasn't impressed. Yes there are coffee shops and boutiques and antiques and thrift stores.And so ? What is different about that ?It has a library, some bars and restaurants, lots of places do. Other neighborhood areas of Vancouver BC, Bellingham, Seattle, Olympia, Victoria have the same exact thing.There is nothing which... More

We are from out of state and an architect friend from Portland turned us on to this neighborhood many years ago. Taking us over the Sellwood bridge. We loved the 100 or so antique shops. We even had some Mission style furniture made for us by a craftsman there. Always fun and several good places to eat.

Needing to waste time I decided to go by. The actual road with all the antique shops, restaurants and old town views makes it worth the trip. The antique stores were decently priced and some will let you barter with them, within reason. It's nice to be able to take walk down the street, grab a sandwich from the bakery... More

Sellwood used to be its own little town, and in most ways, it still feels like that. It's a neighborhood you don't even need a car in. Great shops, great grocers, great restaurants, wonderful parks, near the river, bike-friendly, and really lovely little homes. It's the neighborhood I wished I lived in.

Lots of antique/thrift shops that take one back to yesteryears. It's a funky little area with some off beat things to see. Fat Albert's for breakfast is a must. There are only a few tables so you will probably have to wait, but the food is worth it. Forget about counting calories that day and enjoy the meal.
