    For dinner, pork stew was light but hardy, unique and flavorful, seasoned perfectly. Fried chicken, 2 tiny, dry enough to cut gums pieces w a stale biscuit bordered b/w an insult and a rip off.

    Gobblecado. It's a sandwich of smoked turkey with creamy avocado and a chili mayo that does a great job of perking up those mild flavors; Cotija cheese adds the perfect salty bite.

    Fantastic brunch spot. Build-a-Biscuit is a no brainer. Hash browns are a great side. Have a cup of Stumptown while you wait on a table.

    Boring. Actually had to send the steak back, that's a first for me. Would recommend getting drinks at the bar upstairs, the ambiance and liquor may be all this place has going for it.

    One of my favorite burgers. A nice balance between fast food style (shredded lettuce, highly seared patty, potato bun) and restaurant style (white cheddar, caramelized onions).

    Stumptown coffee and homemade Graham crackers. I find myself drawn here mid day and for lunches for a little oasis and break from the gloomy November days. I assume it will be nice in December too.
