One of our favorite places to grab breakfast in our neighborhood is Kiva --a neat little spot that doubles as a spa. Ryan and I head here for our morning acai bowls accompanied by a soy latte.
I love living in Northwest Portland because everything is so close and within walking distance. Ryan and I like to "get our steps in" for the day and, when it's not raining, and explore the neighborhood.
Just when we think we've eaten at every restaurant and sipped at every coffee shop, something new pops up and we're always excited to try it out.
A few of my NW Portland favorites:
Acai bowls/breakfast: Kiva Tea Bar and Spa
Brunch: Pacific Pie Co. (The best kept secret...no lines!)
Healthy Options: Laughing Planet
Quick lunch: Elephant's Delicatessen

Thai: Thai Bloom

Dinner: Muu Muu's
Dessert: Papa Haydn
