My husband and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary by visiting Portland in mid-May, staying at the Nines. We will have all day Friday-Sunday, leaving mid-day on Monday. I definitely want to explore the food carts as well as as at least 2 nice meals. We are planning to take a day trip to the coast on Friday and are trying to decide whether to explore Cannon Beach area or Lincoln City area. Which would you recommend for sight-seeing, good food, etc? What are some good local eats around both areas that you'd recommend (probably for lunch and dinner, as well as snacks in between).
I've been reading some of the other posts and some of the restaurants I think people rave about and I think we're going to try are Pok Pok, Le pigeon, and Paley's Place. Any recommendation on a nice restaurant for anniversary dinner for Sat? We love food that is local, something we can't get in Southern CA. We love sushi, seafood, steaks.
Also, we'd like to hit the food carts. What are your favorites for breakfast, lunch, and late night eats?
Lastly, where would you recommend going for shopping? We are only planning on getting a rental car for Friday to drive to the coast.
Thanks in advance for any tips you can provide!
