Alberta Street is lined with boutiques and restaurants as well as cafes and galleries. It was easy to spend an entire day wandering, shopping and eating as we ambled along. The 4km street takes a good amount of time to walk along even without stopping.
I've picked a few good places that I visited along the way to show you, so check them out!
Case Study Coffee
Case Study Coffee was an amazing warehouse style cafe where I had a caramel latte with their own homemade caramel. The best coffee I had in my entire trip to America! Coffee lovers do not miss.
At Bollywood Theater we had to line up for about half an hour before we could order and then take our seats. If everyone's lining up for it, it must be good, a reasonable rule to live by, and definitely true in this case. Amazing traditional Indian food with a lot of it served as street style dishes. Probably our favourite dinner in Portland.
Via Chicago boasts traditional Chicago deep pan pizza. A pizza style that I'm actually unfamiliar with. We ordered the four cheeses to share, and probably got through 3 quarters of the pizza before we thought we were going to die from pizza overload. Incredibly saucy with amazing crust! I crossed to the deep pan pizza side.
Salt & Straw
I can't believe I managed to snap a photo of Salt & Straw when there wasn't a street long line outside, even though it was Winter. Fresh Made waffle cones and amazingly delicious flavours that you've never heard of before. The line up is definitely worth the wait to get some Cinnamon Snickerdoodle ice-cream.
Collage Art SuppliesCollage near my house right now I would be a lot more arts and crafty. With more supplies you would ever dream of having, I loved walking through this store and being envious.
Digs Inside & OutDigs Inside & Out made me cry, because I couldn't bring any of it home! Adorable pot plants, outdoor furniture, and decor that I most definitely want but that wouldn't fit in my suitcase.
Screaming SkyScreaming Sky, amazed me with it's variety and I was pleasantly surprised to find many art pieces that were from local Portland artist, who I already followed and loved on Etsy. Including one of my favourite The Black Apple, whose art pieces I often fawn over online and in my Frankie Calendar.
I had a great time in Portland! You should probably add it to your list of places to go!
Another Note; I am starting a blogging project with an awesome company in Sydney at the moment, and if it all goes well I can not wait to share it with you!
