Bite on the Bluff

Without a doubt one of the greatest benefits of working in North Portland is living here. For better or worse Evan and I cannot walk the dog, get a bite to eat, or have color copies made without running into a customer or neighbor. Our relationship with this area and its inhabitants runs deep, rooted in a mutual respect and understanding of our community. We work incredibly hard to serve and meet the needs of our community and in return they support us tremendously because we are undeniably a part of the neighborhood. Opening the cafe has only strengthened our love for North Portland and we feel honored that we can contribute to its growth in a positive way.

That's just one reason why we're so excited to be a part of University of Portland's "Bite on the Bluff" tomorrow, an event featuring food from local area restaurants in celebration of the Women's soccer team's home opener. In addition to keeping regular cafe hours, we're setting up shop on campus leading up to the big game. Not only are we big fans of the sport, but we are fortunate enough to consider many of the players "regulars," and we can't wait to cheer them on. The event runs from 12 p.m- 7 p.m. just outside the Chiles Center, with the game (UP Women vs. California) beginning at 7 p.m.

We've created a special menu just for the occasion that we hope will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters:

Fruit & Wine (v)
cup of fresh fruit salad tossed in sauvignon blanc syrup

Granola and Honey Yogurt
Nancy's Honey Yogurt with house granola, topped with fresh blueberries and bananas
