This small cafe has a large selection of breakfast, brunch and lunch offerings, ranging from bagels and lox to soups, paninis and baguette sandwiches. On a late-September Sunday, it was quiet, with classical music playing and a dozen students and others casually enjoying coffee or...More

Excellent food at good prices, near the Portland State campus. Special order breakfast (one egg, not two) was no problem. Eggs Benedict with salmon was excellent. Selections of tea extraordinary. Great baked goods (bagels, croissants, scones, pastries), beautiful sandwiches and tasty wraps.

My husband and I are foodies! The bagels here are definitely fresh and so soft. Yummy sandwiches, coffee, and best iced tea I've had! Love the environment and it's very clean!

Nice place, good coffee & food, nice selection. Friendly staff. Free wifi. I had the havarti and turkey panini. It was great. My wife's salad was fresh. So you have good food in a convivial atmosphere. Nothing to write home about but certainly delicious.

I didn't feel that Portland was a welcoming city but the Park Avenue Café was a nice break from the hustle/bustle. It is next to Portland State University and so it had a nice university feel to it. Food was good and the drinks were...More
