Now that we are about to enter the summer season, we thought it would be nice to share some travel highlights for when you’re in the area. This week we would like to share some restaurant recommendations for when you when passing through Troutdale on your way the Multnomah Falls. We are fortunate to have many excellent choices right here on “main street” otherwise known as East Columbia River Highway. All of the restaurants listed are family friendly and many offer outside seating as well.

  • Ristorante Di Pompello: fantastic Italian food featuring a full variety of classic dishes (vegetarian offerings, too). Lunch and dinner options, including fine wines and beers. Così delizioso!
  • Troutdale General Store: breakfast, lattes, soups, sandwiches, desserts and an old fashioned ice cream; or just skip all that and pick up some yummy candy.
  • Celebrate Me Home: enjoy breakfast pastries, sandwiches, salads, soups, and coffee drinks, all in the comfort yourwe mean theirliving room.
  • Siam Sushi: awesome Asian food in the Thai and Japanese traditions. Over 2 dozen sushi rolls to try, along with noodle and curry dishesOMG!
  • Ye Olde Pub: just as you would imagine; pub fare including steaks, hamburgers and frosty beverages. Cheers!
  • Brewligans Bottle Shop: enjoy some of the best microbrews the Northwest has to offer. Pair you brew with one of their signature gourmet hot dogs and park it on the picnic bench.
  • Taste of Village: if you’re craving Chinese food, make this your stop. Choose from a full menu of all your favorites. Try one of the house specialties or something new, but don’t forget the fortune cookies.

So remember to make time for us on your way to the Gorge or on your return. Troutdale is full of interesting shops, galleries, and parks.
