Was my first time to Nuvrei's new retail store. I happen to be with a friend who was in the bakery business for thirty years down in California. We both had a danish, I had the apple one and both had macaroons. All were simply amazing. She gave it an A+ too. Nice job Nuvrei. Only comments were on the space. It was cramped and I wasn't sure where to get in line or wait for my food once I ordered.

This was my second time at Seres. The first time I wasn't that impressed. It wasn't bad, but it didn't live up to the hype I had heard. I wouldn't have came back, but we had a coupon to use so what the heck! This time it was much better. The food was very flavorful. The sauce on the chicken was amazing. Very good dish. The service was prompt and friendly. Well done Seres.

Went to LIfe of Riley and it was pretty busy in the upstairs area. Was surprised there was only one server, but she handled it pretty well and we didn't have to wait too long for our drinks which were very reasonable in price. Not exactly what you would expect in the Pearl. The three of has had a round of drinks for only 9 bucks. You would pay that much for one person most places.

Coco curry at Madena for First Thursday. I was at Madena for my first time on First Thursday and it couldn't have been a better night. Centrally located in the Pearl District, lots of great people watching. I had the coco curry which was tasty. They do have outside seating but it is limited to only a couple tables. The service was prompt and we got our food very quickly.

Ok! places to play pool in the Pearl. Blitz, Life of Riley, Henry's or Touche! Blitz is like a Frat party. 1) I don't want to be immersed in a bunch of drunk kids bumping into me. 2) Life of Riley stinks downstairs... ehhhh 3) And Henry's is decent but always so crowded and not much room either. At Touche you have plenty of room upstairs, with like six tables. There are actually windows so you can see the city, good drinks at fair prices.

What's with all the weird hanging lights?? Ok, there is nothing really bad about Cloud Seven, but I don't know if I can experienced anything all that amazing either. Yah, they have wireless, lots of place to sit, and coffee of course. With all the coffee shops in the Pearl, i wish they could deliver something more unique!

Recently went to Paragon and mind you this review is based on my happy hour experience only. We got a place outside which was perfect for the amazing day-. Pluses: food and drinks on the hh menu, atmosphere rocks, tons of outside seating. When I the big banner out front advertising happy hour i expected a little bigger selection on the menu. no burger :( however I will still come back once in a while.

Cool Starbucks, but I still think I prefer the ma and pa places in the Pearl. Starbucks corporate tried to recreate the old warehouse feel of the Pearl and did a decent job too. I just prefer the real thing like at Barista or Breken Kitchen. The cool thing about this Starbucks is that you can grab a cold brew and the food is better than the regular coach class food at the other locations. Cheers bucks!

Vibrations of freight trains rolled through my body as I sat and drank my latte at Breken. Amazing views of the Fremont bridge sitting on the once industrial loading dock. The environment is so cool here... inside outside. Old industrial warehouse turned cafe. Tons of seating and free wifi await. The breakfast sandwich and service was okay, they were pretty busy and it took a while to get my drink and food. nothing to write home about, but that's okay because there wasn't any room left after writing about such cool atmosphere and location!! :-)

I love the healthy options they have at Isabel's. The food is super clean and great if you happen to be on a diet and need to be eating well. Normally when I'm in this mode I get their breakfast burrito which has egg whites, low carb tortilla and white meat chicken. Awesome options here. And for all the other times... Omelettes and Pancakes. When it's sunny they have amazing windows that open up. Very cool place.

I like going to Whole Foods for lunch... Specifically the salad bar is great and has tons of choices. Pizza bar is great too. They have some great areas for seating where there is always a great crowd to meet people during lunch and do some networking! The only thing is... yah "Whole Pay Check" The place is sorta spendy.... But when I do go it's always decent experience.

Met a friend here for lunch and had a good experience. The food was not heavy the way some Italian can be and that left room for gelato afterwards. It's nice that it's so closer to Tanner Springs Park as well. Great place to take a walk to afterwards to eat the gelato.

I really liked the interior of deschutes... taking the old industrial building and turning it into something special. It's an amazing space inside and the food aint half bad either but I just don't see spending 14 bones for a burger and fries.

Fuller's has that diner feeling. You can imagine yourself eating breakfast at the turn of the century with all the original photos around the Cafe circa early 1900's. The cafe doesn't look that much different now which is what makes it super cool. Don't expect some fancy shmancy breakfast. You'll get a basic breakfast, quickly and consistently every time. When I'm feeling simple I always go to Fullers. Make sure to take cash as they don't take credit cards last I checked.

Sat outside with the great weather we had today. Waited quite a while for the food almost twenty min. I wonder if this place should be under the quick bites category... when they did bring out the food it wasn't what I ordered but it was good. Guess I just have to knock them on service. Hope they can pull it togrther-

Quality of the food was super good. I had the gyro plate. It came with fresh pita bread right from the custom oven. I could see it being made right in front of me. Cool to know that its that fresh! The only thing I thought that could be improved was the service, but that could be because it was new. A smile goes a long way. :-)

peets is my usual after trompping around d Powell's. I love the fact that they have a big garage door they open when the weather is good. Its a perfect location, central to the busiest area of the Pearl. They make a killer iced chair which is my fav.

it was a Saturday evening I went to Brix in the Pearl. There was a large group party which seemed fitting for the place considering its large size. We sat in the bar and had drinks and happy hour. The bar is quite large. There are TV's and a pool table as well. I had the ribs on the HH menu which were excellent.
