Seriously though--I'm a big fan of industrial and minimal style, and Portland is choke-full of it. Every building has exposed brick, open layout, wood beams, the whole nine. The beauty of Portland are the small restaurants and bars in SE Portland. Downtown was interesting (Union Way for unique shopping, Ace Hotel has a cool bar and top-notch style), but the trendy areas are establishing off MLK in the Southeast across the bridge for sure.
I'm bringing it up again--brunch. I mean, I've had brunch before. I've had it at the biggest "it" spots in my city, I've had it at the secret spots, I've even had it at your local Denny's. But Portland really knows it's way around a coffee cocktail and eggs benny (Tasty & Sons and Olympic Provisions were my two favorite spots).
Portland, I'll be back.
