Exploring the Sellwood Neighborhood of Portland


There are many antique shops, interesting little stores and cafes.

Sellwood has a friendly vibe. There's a feeling that all are welcome in this cozy little neighborhood.

Our first stop the "Grand Central Baking Company" for breakfast.






The biscuits were delicious...large and fluffy with just the right amount of crunch on the crust.
Mmmm I want some more of the homemade berry jam on that yummy biscuit.






Lots of food wagons on the street. Take your pick.























Fun specialty stores...




Lots of interesting items










these robots were fun...



A cup of jo






is just around the corner...take your pick, lots of places to choose from









Many ethnic restaurants for your dining pleasure.

We decided to eat here one night










Here we are



don't forget the dessert....mmmmm we'll take one of each



Sellwood feels very self-sustaining. Local grocery store "New Seasons" , many local coffee shops and
a few local coffee roasters make this community feel warm and alot like its own small town. Walking the streets of Sellwood evokes a "back in the good old days" feeling, small town, personal and extremely friendly.










On our last day we ate a great breakfast at Lili's.




Sellwood is a walkable and inviting place to live. It has a great sense of community pride. We really enjoyed this quaint, wonderful little neighborhood.

So glad you had fun exploring Portland. I love Sellwood....great place to go antiquing. I wish I could shop at New Seasons everyday! I buy my Thanksgiving turkey there and I love their deli and prepared foods for a lunchtime treat.
Brian and I need to explore some of the food carts....everybody in town talks about them.
