What do you order at a place called Biscuits CafÃ©? Biscuits, of course! Even though it was definitely lunchtime, I decided to opt for a little bit of breakfast for my midday meal. I ordered the biscuits and gravy with a side of hash browns.
The menu at Biscuits CafÃ© goes way beyond biscuits. They offer a large selection of breakfast item, including omelets, pancakes, French toast and waffles. The lunch menu includes burgers, fish and chips, sandwiches and salads.
The restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch, but the entire menu is available until they close. Unfortunately, even with lunchtime breakfast options, I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll be going back.

Pastini Pastaria is pretty much my go-to spot for any sort of family or friend function that entails a large group going out to a restaurant. Sure, some people might consider it Portland’s local version of Olive Garden, but the food is consistently good (even if it is a little on the bland side) and there is something on the menu for everyone-even those picky eaters and vegetarians.
What I love about Pastini is that they offer an excellent variety of pasta, from capellini to ziti and everything in between! They even offer whole wheat pasta, which is typically what I order. They have just about every combination of delectable pasta dishes, from the simple spaghetti agli e olio (the classic with sautÃ©ed garlic, olive oil, basil and parmesan) to the more decedent baked manicotti (filled with beef, pork, ricotta and spinach, then baked with alfredo sauce and marinara). All pasta dishes are served with the equally delicious ciabatta bread from Pearl Bakery. Continue reading Review: Pastini Pastaria
