Coffee, tasty donuts and pastries, soups and sandwiches, and a full bar make Pieper cafe a favorite stop. Free wifi makes this a frequent place for all the self-employed to get out of their house, get a cup-of-joe, and get to working. The staff is pleasant and helpful, always nice to come in!
Great local coffee shop with paninis and baked goods, gluten free and vegetarian options.
A good cup of Joe, locally owned, part of the movement to make our neighborhood nicer, also has bagels and other basic eats.
“Bar Carlo has great food from breakfast to small plates at dinner, including an extensive vegan menu, a full bar, and the other half of the space has a record store, a indoor plant store, and vintage goods. There has been many a time I bought a few albums while waiting for my delicious food to arrive. The owners of Bar Carlo also go out their way to foster other community gatherings like craft nights, watch parties, for favorite tv shows, hosting local filmmakers, or the odd music performance. As it says on the wall "Foster is a verb"!”
“3 minutes drive, 13 minute walk from Foster Cabin. Great bagel breakfast sandwiches and coffee. Takeout only - no seating options yet. ”
“3 minute drive, 25 minute walk from Foster Cabin. I like this Travel Portland description best: "Since 2001, Chinese Vietnamese bakery An Xuyen has earned a spot as a neighborhood favorite serving banh mi, pastries, bao, sticky rice and, if you’re lucky, spring rolls. (Check the specials board!) The baguettes and pastries are all made in-house (and found across town at grocery stores and restaurants). This artisan Pan-Asian bakery and delicatessen offers authentic eats like coconut sweet rolls, baked barbecue pork buns and guava puffs (along with savory options like their banh mi-style sandwiches). Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival tip: An Xuyen is one of the few places in town that bake their own mooncakes for and they sell out every season, so be sure to take home a few of these delicacies when you see them on the shelves."”
“Northwest IPA is a traditional bottle shop nestled in the heart of the Foster Powell neighborhood. They specialize in IPA's and other regional craft brews, and have a rotating selection to choose from. Super laid back, nice place to drop in, great sidewalk seating where you can lean back and do some good people watching.”
“ This bonafide, unapologetic dive bar/ restaurant, is a neighborhood gem. Their kitchen closes at 2 and serves legit wholesome Hawaiian fare, not your usual fried gut-bomb bar food that one would expect at such an establishment. Most dishes are $12 and under, eat in and do some people watching, or take out to enjoy at home.”
