So even though while we were in Portland it was a totally SNOW disaster- we had such a great time walking around, finding a few new spots (and a few old favorites) that were actually open and totally made my PORTLAND FAVORITE LIST, so darlings- if you are planning a trip or just want some new things to add to your Portland list I hope this helps.
I feel like when it comes to Portland you HAVE to start with favorite coffee places. Stumptown and Barista are ALWAYS one of my stops- and while on this trip I totally still did a quick drop by both BUT I also was able to try something new! Waterfront Avenue Coffee– you guys SO FREAKIN AMAZING!
Their avocado toast was AMAZING- seriously their was sprinkled cayenne and feta…all the HEART EYES. And their espresso was so great along with their HONEY ALMOND MILK LATTE.
I am a sucker for Green Leaf Juice Company since Zack and I used to live there, but this time around due to the snow I was forced into trying a new one and I TOTALLY LOVED IT!
Kure Juice Bar is the cutest things of my life- totally INSTAGRAM worthy. and their juices are SO good. ALSO, ginger shots there are TO DIE FOR…and I mean usually those aren’t that good so that is saying a lot , haha.
WORKOUT: COREPOWER NORTHWEST
It’s no secret that I ADORE CorePower Yoga, a good sculpt class is like one of my favorite things ever. And the Portland Northwest CorePower Studio is what started my obsession and now one of my BEST FRIENDS teaches sculpt class their- her name is JOVITA, and one of her best times to stop by and take a killer sculpt class is 7:30 am on Saturdays! Get ready to have your booty burning…but hey that means you are allowed to have more wine 😉
Instagram Worthy Hotel: ACE HOTEL
I mean, I gotta do a quick shoutout for anyone else that likes a good photo-op! Ace Hotel in Portland is FABULOUS, they are attached to a stump town, their bar is wonderful for cocktails, and their lobby is ADORABLE.
ps…did I mention they have a photo booth?!! ahh too cute!
Portland like ALWAYS rains right?? So I mean what’s better on a rainy day then some good tomato soup and grilled cheese?!
TOMATO SOUP & GRILLED CHEESE: IMPERIAL
So typically Zack and I just RANT AND RAVE about Paragon for their grilled cheese and tomato soup BUT you guys there is another WINNER, Imperial restaurant is SO GOOD..also their CEASAR kicks butt too!
I have chatted so many times about good Portland places and things that are a MUST do while in town, so I was really excited that I got to try a few new places this time around. You will have to let me know what you think and totally message me if you have any questions.
ahhh, now I totally have the TRAVEL ITCH..where shall I go next??? 😉
