A Quick Weekend in Rose City


As I’ve mentioned before here on the blog, Ben and I always love exploring Portland. We spent a rainy Friday night and Saturday there this past weekend, and brought our dog Kai along for the fun. Our list of things-to-do in Portland keeps getting longer and so we keep going back!

We started our Saturday with coffee at Coava Coffee Roasters, where we sat outside with Kai. Then we had brunch in the rain on the porch at Interurban. We got there just before they opened at 10 AM, got a table right away, and had the porch to ourselves (thanks to Kai!)–we had just enough shelter to keep us dry while we ate and the food was great.



After brunch we browsed a couple of shops along N. Mississippi like Animal Traffic, Annex Footwear, Salty’s Pet Store, and Worn Path.

Then we visited Renegade PDX in the rain.

Next we got lunch at the Alberta 15 food cart pod, I popped in for a quick browse of Modern Domestic, and we got another dose of caffeine to fuel our drive home at dog-friendly Case Study Coffee Roasters.

See you again soon, Portland.
