Where to Eat in Northwest Portland

Portland, Oregon is a great place to visit for foodies. There are also lots of vegan-friendly and vegan exclusive restaurants. Northwest Portland is one of the six different districts in Portland, Oregon that consists of Nob Hill/ 23rd Ave, Old Town Chinatown, and the Pearl District.  If you’re looking for food in NW Portland, there is something for everyone. In this post, I am going over where to eat in Northwest Portland. I’m covering a range of food from dinner to dessert (donuts, ice cream, and more).

This post is an excerpt from my larger post, “The Ultimate Guide to Northwest Portland.” If you want to know where to drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), as well as things to do in NW Portland, check out that post here.

Bamboo Sushi

Bamboo Sushi is the world’s first sustainable-certified sushi restaurant. It’s also a great place to grab sushi in Northwest Portland, as well as several other locations throughout Portland. Portland is known for being vegan-friendly and this restaurant is no exception. There are two different vegan options and they have been the best vegan sushi that I have had at any restaurant. Reservations are currently required and they book fast on weekends. Make sure to book a few days ahead of time!

Address: 836 NW 23rd Ave, Portland, OR 97210

Hours: 4:00 pm- 9:00 pm 7 days/week

2. Harlow

Harlow is a cute cafe and juice bar that specializes in vegan and vegetarian food. The menu has a range of smoothies, juices, health-conscious comfort food selections, and baked goods. If it’s your first time visiting, I recommend trying the Hawthorne Mac with chili, their Mighty Bowl, or Wellness Toddy. The baked items of the day are always delicious, too! Their NW location is large and full of light, but there is also another smaller location on Hawthorne.

Address: 505 NW 23rd Ave, Portland, OR 97210

Hours: 9:00 am- 8:00 pm 7 days/week

3. Petunia’s Pies and Pastries

Looking for baked goods that will rival your favorite bakery? Petunia’s Pies and Pastries is my favorite place to baked goods and they are all vegan and gluten-free. Petunia’s location is situated near Powell’s Books in the Pearl District. I recommend trying the buster bar, babycakes, thin mint brownie, and salted caramel cookie bar. But honestly, you can’t go wrong with anything you order here.

Address: 610 SW 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97205

Hours: 10:00 am- 6:00 pm 7 days/week

4. Blue Star Donuts

Portland is full of great donuts. If you’re in Northwest Portland, stop by Blue Star. If you’re not vegan, try the blueberry bourbon basil or lemon poppy old-fashioned. For a great vegan option, try the orange olive oil, which is my personal favorite, or the passion fruit cake. There are also a few other locations around Portland, as well as one in the airport if you didn’t get a chance to visit while in NW Portland.

Address: 1701 SW Jefferson St, Portland, OR 97201

5. Sizzle Pie

Sizzle Pie is one of my favorite places to grab a slice of pizza when at Powell’s Books, after a night out, or otherwise in the area. There is currently no indoor seating. There is a pickup location at a window and a few spots of outdoor seating. The pizza is thin-crust style and they have both vegan and non-vegan pizza options. I recommend are the spiral tap and void for vegan options. The garlic knots are also really good. There are a few other locations around town if you are not in the Northwest area.

Address: 926 W Burnside St, Portland, OR 97205

Hours: 11:00 am- 10:00 pm Sunday through Thursday, open until 12:00 am on Friday & Saturday

6. 10 Barrel Brewing

Like donuts and vegan food, Portland is known for its breweries! If you’re in NW Portland, stop at 10 Barrell for a beer and pub food. There is a large area inside for seating, as well as rooftop seating on sunny days. I recommend trying for rooftop seating and grabbing a flight on warmer days!

Hours: 11:00 am- 11:00 pm Sunday through Thursday, open until 12:00 am on Friday & Saturday

7. Deschutes Brewing & Public House

Deschutes is another great brewery to eat at while in NW Portland. It’s well-known in both Portland and Bend. The atmosphere is inviting and the food + beer is great. There are 26 different beers on tap, I highly recommend grabbing a flight if you like beer.

8. Salt and Straw

Salt and Straw is an ice cream shop that began in Portland and has since expanded to other cities. There are now locations in Anaheim, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Miami. Each month there is a whole new set of seasonal flavors. There are always 1- 2 dairy-free options in the season selection, as well as on their permanent menu.

The ice cream flavor combinations are sometimes totally unexpected, but they always work. Think bone marrow & smoked cherries (yes, that was an actual flavor they had). I recommend the Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons and Honey Lavender. If you’re vegan, go for the seasonal flavors! The NW location is the original Salt and Straw. Most nights there is a line out the door, but it’s worth the wait and you can try as many flavors as you want without being rushed!

Address: 838 NW 23rd Ave, Portland, OR 97210

Hours: 11:00 am- 11:00 pm 7 days/week

9. Thai Peacock

Thai Peacock has great Thai food and a great atmosphere to go with it. It’s vegan-friendly and easy to decipher what is vegan and what’s not thanks to the key on the menu. Try the House Thai Peacock Curry if you love peanut sauce, curry, and spicy foods.

Address: 219 SW 9th Ave., Portland, OR 97205

Hours: 11:00 am- 9:30 pm Sunday- Thursday, 11:00 am- 10:00 pm Friday & Saturday

10. Backwoods Brewing

Another great brewery! Backwoods was started in the Columbia River Gorge out in Carson, Washingotn, and has a location near Powell’s Books. This Brewery has great food and great beer. Try grabbing a seat in the shade outside on a warm day in the summer. It’s a great location to people watch, and quiet enough for conversation.

Address: 231 NW 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97209

Hours: 11:30 am- 10:00 pm Sunday- Thursday, 11:30 am- 11:00 pm Friday & Saturday
