We sat outside at a picnic table while enjoying a delicious lunch -- wonderful fresh salad, and breakfast food, which is served all day. Excellent salad, great service.

My boyfriend and I stopped here for breakfast during our stay in Portland. Our server was amazing and the food came quickly. This place is great if you have dietary restrictions. They offer vegetarian and gluten free options for almost everything on the menu. I...More

My coworker and I ordered salads, and they were delicious, fresh and huge. The service was fast, which important for a work day lunch. I will definitely want to come back and order another salad, which is not my typical go-to for a diner.

Nothing fancy about building or decor, but a real solid selection of Breakfast foods. From Biscuits and Grave to some really nice eggs Benedict's, steak, and everything between. Haven't tried for lunch. Nice people and reasonable service. Good to fair prices.

Yesterday was my third trip to City State. With each successive visit, my opinion has dropped to where it now stands below "C" level. At most, City State deserves a "D". Yesterday, I ordered one of their scrambles (a breakfast item) that ostensibly should have...More
