Great little place to have breakfast

My spouse and I walked here for breakfast when in Portland on business. Interesting breakfast menu, simple yet delicious. The staff was very attentive to our needs. The coffee was excellent. Highly recommend this place!

We had their basic breakfast wrap and they were yummy. The coffee they serve is very good. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. The decor is a combo plate of punk, Rat Pack and soft drink memorabilia. Funk and fun. I'd like to go back for a lunch wrap. Would go again for breakfast.

This is a cheerful little place. Heaven knows there are a plethora of choices for lunch! The problem we had is that the flavors were pretty plain. It was OK, just nothing too special about this place. Maybe the problem was the way we ordered, but it seemed to both of us that it needs some boosting of flavors. Can't... More

Some of the best wraps you will ever eat can be found at Market Street. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it is warm, welcoming, and eclectically decorated. People of all ages pack this place for lunch and you will leave happy and satisfied. There is always a daily special, but anything you try will be... More

First visit - this was a cruise stop for me - As I looked a the menu, I was leaning toward the Tuna Kamakazi, and I asked the counter worker what was HIS favorite thing to eat here....when he said Tuna Kamakazi, that sealed the deal. This was a wrap served warm with tuna, avocado, pickles, etc. and it was... More

We were in the Old Port and looking for a restaurant with quick service and inexpensive food, but that was better than fast food. Specifically, I was hoping for a place that had some sandwiches with more interesting ingredients than you would find at, say, your local Subway. We stumbled across Market Street Eats and it was PERFECT. They had... More

My GF and I try and get to Market Street Eats most time when we are roaming around Portland and it never disappoints. We both had the Red Rooster which is a toasted chicken wrap with Spicy Thai mayo and I also had a spicy thai potato salad on the side. The wraps were excellent as was the service. I... More

Market St. Eats is a great find on a quieter street in the busy Old Port. Sandwiches are $7-9. A great place to duck in, to get away from the cruise crowd. Real locals eating here. Decor is a cross between a 1950's drive in and a old fashioned pop shop. Something on every wall to catch your eye. I... More

We used our living social deals to cover our meals today. I had the Red Rooster (Grilled chicken, bacon, provolone, spicy Thai mayo, red onion, and pickles). Bill had the Avo Melt (even tho he wanted to order the Turkey Avo Melt). Both sandwiches were DELICIOUS! I could only eat half, but Bill managed to eat the whole thing. It... More

Good food even greater people watching. Be sure to check out the great cheese shop. We love the sandwiches from Big Sky.
