This is my favorite place during the week to go for a work lunch. It's also a wonderful place to get an early dinner before seeing a show at the Schnitzer or the performing arts Center.

Imagine if you will an accident where two foodie businesses struck each other head-on and there were no injuries. The surviving entity has the best of a DIners breakfast and lunch counter combined with the variety and richness of a neighbourhood Delicatessen.

Centre of town bistro style with a vast range of freshly-made products. Not much room inside but on a warmer day there is plenty of plaza space on the doorstep. Not too expensive and with a good selection of vegetarian options.

Wonderful, made from scratch deli food. There are boxed sandwiches and salads as well as a grill for made to order sandwiches. Soup is fantastic! The restaurant is small and a bit crowded. Popular stop for tourists as well as locals.

My husband and I were directed here by someone at the Portland Art Museum and were not disappointed. I had a great croque monsieur, and he had one of the specials of the day, a rueben sandwich. The only drawback of this deli is that...More
