This spot was next to my hotel so I tried it out and was not disappointed. I had a killer bacon, egg and cheese breakfast croissant. The service was good and I thought it was a cool coffee/breakfast/lunch place that I'd try again.

Large list of offerings that were very good. The marble rye bread was much better than average.Friendly staff. In door and out door seating.

I come here whenever I'm in Portland. Awesome staff, super friendly. My company has annual conferences at the Regency next door and during breaks, everyone bypasses the brought corporate brand (you know who I mean) and makes a beeline to the Crooked Mile.

Walking through town, we noticed the sign that said to try the iced almond coffee. Service was good, quaint little place. Iced coffee was excellent. Good luck! They also serve sandwiches that sounded good, but we did not try.

The Crooked Mile had a variety of choices. A very similar menu to another restaurant down the street. My Fiesta Salad was tasty, however, the prices were high.

This is a lunch spot for Portland's office workers. At times people are lined out the door. They serve sandwiches and salads. I've only had salads here, they're good, the usual.

Fresh, good ingredients, and interesting combinations, make this a great choice for lunch. A mixture of local office workers and workmen attest to its popularity. Very friendly staff with the requisite tattoos and beanies. Excellent choice among many very good choices in a foodie city.

The Crooked Mile Cafe on Milk Street in Old Port is a little gem of a place. Friendly staff, nice selection of breakfast, lunch and snack fare (soups, salads, sandwiches), great coffees, teas, etc. Closed weekends. Great spot to take a load off your feet and re-charge.

Found it by accident and blown away by everything. The salads were the freshest. Coffees were great. The staff were among the friendliest people encountered by wait staff. They answered all questions. Very reasonable and they make a special effort to accommodate patrons. They said that they were closed on the weekends (why??) so I could not make a return... More

We were in a hurry and stopped in for breakfast - ordered 2 breakfast sandwiches with egg, cheese, and meat on a croissant. Simple, but so tasty and delicious! Cute corner restaurant with comfortable wood furnishings, and reasonably priced as well. Would definitely stop back!
