This is a wonderful neighborhood place to get wine and cheese and similar food to go, or to meet a friend or two for a drink and a light meal. They have fabulous sandwiches as well.

If you're visiting the Irvington neighborhood in NE Portland you must stop in for a coffee, sandwich or glass of wine at Foster & Dobbs. Laid back locals, outdoor tables and excellent wine and cheese tastings make this a foodie paradise.

Stopped in here for a late lunch yesterday after getting off a plane. It was excellent. The cheddar with mango chutney sandwich was a perfect balance of flavors. My banh mi with chopped pate and veggies was bright and flavorful, too. Sandwiches came with a tossed green salad, and a lunch this good for about $8 is worth writing about.... More

I was traveling thru the Laurelhurst neighborhood on Sunday and came upon this wonderful place. They offer an array of cheese and charcuterie plates, soup, sandwiches and salads. I chose the hot Oregon Albacore Tuna with preserved lemons, capers and olives, topped with cheddar and dijon mustard. It is served with a small salad and a bargain at $8. My... More
