If you're looking for a standard traditional, conservative restaurant, Silly's is not going to be your thing. If you're looking for something creative and original you will want to find Silly's. Silly's is an off the beaten path favorite of locals. We (my 10 year old, 12 year old, and I) are vegetarian and very rarely all agree on a restaurant, except Silly's. I absolutely love the zombie burger, it's an explosion of flavor in every bite--jalapeño peppers and pineapple--yum! The hand cut sweet potato fries are delicious but don't eat more than half of your entree, you will want to save room for dessert. Delicious cakes are baked daily. The vegan chocolate is my favorite. If you go in the summer be sure to sit out on the patio and order the sangria. If you go in the winter you will enjoy the unusual photos decorating the walls. A personal favorite is the one of Nixon an Elvis shaking hands. Love, love, love Silly's.

The number of interesting menu choices is unmatched anywhere in the Portland area. You have to keep going back so you can try them all. Chicken in a boat was fabulous! Greek burger was perfect! The Nutella Dulce de Leche pie is something I'm going to attempt to replicate! Go. Try everything. Enjoy!

I visited this place twice over one weekend -- once for dessert, once for lunch. The menu is perfect for anyone with dietary restrictions: vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.

For the dessert, I ordered the Vegan Cocoa-Doodle-Do, which is a white flour tortilla stuffed full of vegan chocolate cake, chocolate syrup and soy ice cream, then fried & served with a side of soy ice cream & dusted with cocoa. It's a lot to handle, but so delicious, especially for chocolate lovers like me. My wife had the Sweet Dreams, which is fried sweet plantains, maple syrup, toasted pecans, toasted coconut & a dash of cinnamon. It was almost like a bananas foster -- so sweet! Each dessert was around $7, which is a little pricey, but worth it for the unusual yet tasty treats.

We came back for lunch a few days later, and the food was just as good. I had the The Cactus Jack pizza, which had spicy salsa, herbed tempeh topping, vegan cheddar and mozzarella, spinach, caramelized onions and tomatoes. It had a very unique taste, though I think a non-vegan cheese would've tasted better (but then it wouldn't be vegan, obviously). My wife had a custom-made pizza, which also satisfied her appetite. We each got shakes as well, which were fantastic. The service was a little slow, especially considering it was a Sunday at 3 PM, but again, worth any kind of wait.

Funky vibe, original menu, friendly staff. Very accommodating, and if you're looking for vegan or gluten-free they've got a pretty good selection and will see what they can do to make certain dishes work for you.

A vegetarian's paradise. Ask for a recommendation from the bar for a drink - I ended up with a delicious blueberry juice citrus vodka cocktail. The atmosphere is really really fun, especially for families. The food was delicious and very filling.
