Pine State Biscuits

Pine State Biscuits is best known for their biscuits and gravy combo. There is nothing like a good biscuit sandwich loaded with fried chicken and a good serving of veggies. They even make their own biscuits and serve bomb sweet tea! You cannot go to Portland and not eat some old fashion biscuits. Yummmm.

When it comes to donuts, it is no surprise that Portland has plenty of options. Blue Star smashes the game with their superior decor and endless arrays of donut selection. Maple bacon? Blueberry Bourbon Basil?  The “O.G”? YUP. Wicked unique flavors that I am sure you have never heard of before. So go and grab yourself a donut (or two) and comment below if you have been or plan to check out Blue Star Donuts!

Screen Door

Come hungry (and early) and leave happy. My advice is to snag a spot at their bar so you can get a nice display of their open kitchen and glaze at the bartender as they whip up thirst quenching drinks. They have this specific deal on their menu called the “screen door plate” that allows you to choose any three side dishes. Allow your taste buds to go wild, my friends.
