Stopped in for a couple slices of pizza and immediately decided to get it to go. The bar was very dark with just a few people in it while there were dozens of people floating around outside/ in other restaurants. Usually not a good sign. We stood in the lobby and next to the pizza part for a few minutes... More

Every time we come to Portland, my husband goes to the fast food truck here for a taco. Says they are terrific. Prices are good and there are other vendor stands around if you don't want taco.

Visiting from out of town, and after wandering around the Saturday Market (and line up for Voodoo's) me and my two sons stopped in this bar and enjoyed some home-made pizzas by the slice and a glass of local craft brew (just me of course!). The place looks like a typical watering hole, but it was appreciated it allowed minors... More

First off, we get there and ask for two sodas when we are seated and we didn't get our drinks till 15 minutes later but yet the other two customers at the bar that had arrived AFTER us were getting their beers and we didn't get ours for quite a while after waiting several minutes because the guy that...

Just a few feet from the famous Voodoo Doughnuts is this unassuming bar. Both are just a short walk up from the Portland Satuday Market (a must-do by the way.) Grab an ale or their Pom/Cherry hard cider on tap, a free newspaper, and a seat outside in the sun. Sip, read, relax, people watch. If hungry, they offer slices... More

Fell upon this little treasure while searching for a place to kill time and get a meal. Low and behold they had a special going: All you can eat Spaghetti. There were two kinds. Traditional meat sauce and vegetarian. I had both with cheesy garlic bread and a cold brew. It was a yummy for my tummy moment each bite.... More

We went for a look at Voodoo Donuts....and realized promptly that we wouldn't stand in a line that long even if it was the best donuts on earth, (which they're not.) So we stopped in to this place for a cool drink and ordered some pizza. Goodness gracious me, excellent pizza dough, all around very good pizza. Also, pretty good... More

My wife and I sat outside on Third Avenue last night and watched a lot of interesting people walk by. Interestingly, many were going to Voodoo Doughnuts, carrying back the pink box of doughnuts to their cars. We enjoyed a nice pizza and a couple of draft beers ($3 pints until 7 PM). I would not recommend the location for... More
