My favorite Belgian and Norwegian crossed the pond and I got to spend a few days with them!
I managed to leave work a bit early on Friday (Labor day weekend score), and met up with them at SEE SEE’s Coffee and Motorcycles (a quirky coffeebar across the street from my apartment that I’d previously been to only once).
One of the things I love about having visitors is that I can actually take the time to see the city I live in from a tourist’s perspective). Now, I know why so many tourists come and visit this city. Since it was later afternoon, we headed over to happy hour at Noble Rot to get a nice view of downtown Portland, and then decided to head elsewhere for dinner.
Division street’s many restauraunts left us with a great decision. Ultimately, we decided to have dinner at the Roman Candle Baking Company. I’m not thrilled with the pizza they make (neither were my guests), but the appetizers are great, and the ambiance of the patio can’t be beat. SE Portland makes a great setting for people watching!
After dinner we headed next door to Salt and straw for some exotic flavored ice cream. The Europeans thought the queue for ice cream was photo-worthy.
Good first night in PDX.
