Meh Pizza by the slice, and beer place. Weirdo pizza combos for the BoHo. Full of beatniks, beardies and artisans. Hey that’s it’s Portland in a nutshell. That’s why it’s a cool place

Stopped by for a few slices and cold one last night...was pleasantly surprised to find good thin crust pizza in Portland...Sausage and Broccoli Rabe with Red Pepper flakes was quite tasty as was the Margherita slice...a short walk from the Westin.
