OK it's not all about the cakes, but save room for dessert. We've had many meals at both Papa Haydn locations over the years. Great food, prepared to a high standard with some of the most caring and professional serving staff around. Cake? From wedding cakes to ethereal European desserts, snagging a Papa Haydn sweet is a must.

Papa Hayden (East) is on the northern edge of the charming Sellwood area. I have been here many times for lunch or happy hour, and it has always been a relaxing and memorable experience. Sometimes people think of Papa Hayden as a dessert destination, but my favorite time to come is for Happy Hour which starts at 3:00. In good... More

We have eaten here three times but there was a ten year gap between second and third time. Our verdict is that this is still a very good restaurant as the crowds can attest.

The menu was limited. Went for a birthday and got trout and salads. Beer list okay and the tea was good; service was good. But the outstanding selections came with dessert. Meringue cake with whipped cream and berries was our favorite. Good reasonably priced Macaroons.

We stopped here after a show to have coffee and dessert. They have good coffee as we like a dark roast. We ordered a Lemon Chiffon Cake and a Triple Chocolate Cake to share. Both were very good and melted in our mouths. The slices are huge so we went home with a small box to enjoy again later. The... More

Where else can you go and get a basket of tasty pastries to munch on while waiting for your mean? Our basket included a savory twist of flaky pastry, small blueberry muffin, a chocolate nibble and a fudgy cake with icing. Just one of the recommended brunch choice is the indulgent Madame Croque with layers of tasty ham between brioche... More

Had lunch in this lively restaurant. The space is smallish, and when we arrived it was packed and loud. As crowd thinned, enjoyed it more. Delicious desserts. Our table mostly had sandwiches, which were all terrific. Salmon on the caesar salad is smoked in house and was completely delicious. Overall, a wonderful place for a higher end lunch, and service...

We always try to eat at least one meal at this East side Portland Papa Haydn's. Again it did not disappoint us. I started with a well made vodka and soda with a twist of lemon peel. It is surprisingly difficult to get that in many bars. Most often the drink will arrive with a slice of lemon or lime... More
