First, the bread and butter here is amazing. The butter is so soft, and flavored. I never ask for seconds, but I did here. The French Onion Soup was also outstanding. I enjoyed the cheese pasta as well, not too big of a portion, and not too heavy. I saw some of the deserts, and I wish I had the... More

We had just finished a nice lunch on the sidewalk at McMenamin's and decided we need to have a little walk. Block away we came upon Papa Haydn's and couldn't resist going in the door when we saw the refrigerated dessert display. We went in with a desire to share one dessert, as they all looked amazing and were very... More

We were happy to find a restaurant that took reservations in Portland. They are few and far between. We enjoyed our meal. The French onion soup was delicious. We had everything from Risotto to the Croque Monsieur. The desserts were very tasty, but we ended up taking the cake home as it was served cold and you really can't get... More

Very interesting fusion of oriental and western flavors, that worked out very well. Good service and fairly fast food, and good atmosphere. Now parking was a B*#@t but what can you say very popular area.

We only had a 45 min wait to be seated outdoors. It was a lovely mild Portland evening. Grapevines threaded through the overhead canopy. I had "Hunter's Pasta." Any little gummy, but very tasty. Dessert was delish! Blackberry cheese cake. My Sav Blanc was just right and coffee was tasty. We will definitely return our next visit to P'land.

We were able to sit outside and take advantage of an afternoon of beautiful weather! I had the buratta l.t. with a cup of their soup of the day which was excellent. We tried a unique glass of wine at the recommendation of our server which was also very good. Overall, a cute place to enjoy a nice lunch outside.... More

Wow! We really enjoyed dessert at Papa Haydn! Dinner was mediocre, we had the Croque Monsieur from the Happy Hour Menu. Drinks are good, enjoyed a Lemon Drop! The dessert menu is extensive, and we all ordered different things. The Panna Cotta was to die for. Ice Cream Sandwich, Triple Chocolate Cake, Passion, and Truffle Cake were all outstanding. We...

I went to Papa Haydn's TWICE during my 4-night stay in Portland, OR in mid-August, each time going there for dessert (and tea). The first night, I had their Scharffen Berger Chocolate Bomb, a sinfully rich chocolate-mousse like dessert made from Scharffen Berger brand chocolate. I believe that one of the barometers for the QUALITY of restaurants is their BRAND... More
