The neighborhood rule of thumb is everyone eats here at least once a week because El Burrito Azteca has figured out that great combination of good food and fast service at a great price. If you're in a hurry, they're as fast as any fast food. If you're hungry, you're almost guaranteed to fill your appetite. If you're on a budget, it's hard to eat for less at home. Plus, everyone there is on their game - the service is great. It is an order at the register and bus your own table, but so are a lot of other places now. They also have a lounge next door that is connected to the restaurant, so you can have a beer or drink, too. Call-in & take out available.

Great variety of solar-powered, locally brewed-in-Portland beers, pizza, salads, and sandwiches with games to entertain you. Our favorite brews are the Terminator Stout and Stumptown Porter. All Lucky Lab beers are brewed using solar power - reduce your carbon footprint by walking 3 blocks from NoPo Studio and having a beer!! It's how Portlanders do it.

Best place in North Portland to get it all - breakfast, lunch, dinner, beer and drinks with pool tables and video poker. One of our oldest neighborhood establishments. Food would be described as upscale diner/bar food and has always been good with great service. Conveniently located at Rosa Parks Transit Center, so you can load up before or take or after using the Max light rail. They also have a parking lot, which is a rarity in Portland.

Renowned local venue owned and operated by musicians for musicians. You'll hear a wide range of music at the Studio from local to national acts, so check their schedule and check out whose playing while you here. Many acts to sell out, so I encourage you to check them out in advance.

It a bar or is it a music venue. Mocks Crest Tavern is both and is one of our favorite. Very popular with North Portlanders, the music leans to the blues-rock-folky Americana with a Portland twist. Usually bands are local, but you may catch a regional band passing through. A small venue that can get pretty cozy. Food has always been good with a variety of local beers on tap and full bar.

Parks & Nature
The focal feature at Peninsula Park is The Rose Garden, a gorgeous display of Portland's official flower, which is meticulously maintained by Portland's Master Gardners and is frequently the site of professional photographer sittings and arts events. The entire park is a equally pleasant with large trees, wide curving walks, large open spaces, and a classic 1930's swimming pool cabana.
