48 hours in Portland! Looking for simple, delicious, inexpensive

Will be in Portland for less than 48 hours - excited to visit your lovely city!

I'm looking for yummy eats in the downtown area (staying near Powell's)-

Vegetarian, inexpensive (under $15 for an entree), simple, no fuss food. Will eat just about any cuisine except Chinese. Looking for a dinner, and two breakfasts that can travel well (one will be heading to the airport).

After extensive searches here and on Yelp, I'm considering Nicholas for dinner and Mother's for one early morning breakfast. The other I'm not sure I'll be able to find because i need to be out of the city by 5am. So perhaps Starbucks? lol

Also any must eats to take home that will travel well? (i.e. bagels, etc?) I'm from the east coast but I understand you have Montreal bagels? Anything else that I should know about?
