Portland Recommendations for First Time Visitors

curiousgeo | May 3, 2010 01:53 PM

We'll be in Portland spending just 2 nights downtown at the Westin. Our one full day will be spent visiting Portland State University in the morning and drive part of the Columbia River Highway in the afternoon, at least as far as Multnomah Falls.

Looking for good, solid, Portland restaurants that are moderately priced for 2 dinners and 2 breakfast or lunches. Traditional American, NW seafood, great burgers and places that do good breakfasts are what I have in mind. We'll also be in LA and Vancouver, BC so not looking for Asian, French or Italian food since we'll have plenty to chose from there. Places I've read about in the hotel area so far are:

The Roxy and Fuller's Coffee Shop for breakfast.

Dan and Louis' Oyster Bar for seafood, Huber's Cafe for traditional roast turkey dinner and Mother's Bistro.

Any comments on these places or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Mother's Bistro & Bar
212 SW Stark St, Portland, OR 97204
