Pearl District Specialty
25 N.W. 11th Ave., Pearl Disctrict
Think of Garden Bar as the Sweetgreen of Portland. Mix-your-own salads (or choose from a few well-executed menu items) that are mixed and tossed for you on site. The advantage of going local for a quick salad joint? Most of the organic vegetables on order are sourced from Oregon farmers. There are also locations in Old Town, Park Square, and SE Division.
The Café at Christopher David
901 N.W. 10th Ave., Pearl District
Christopher David is actually a hybrid interior design shop, florist, and café—which means that it's pretty much the most beautifully decorated working coffee shop you could imagine. And, as you'd expect, there are fresh flowers everywhere, too. In addition to great décor and strong WiFi, it’s hard not to love a place with an entire section devoted to toast.
