Proper Eats Market & Café

8638 N. Lombard Ave.
Portland, OR, 97203, United States
TEL: (503) 445-2007

Opened in the city's northern St Johns neighborhood in 2006, this vegan establishment houses a market that showcases organic produce, plus a café with art-lined yellow walls. The NoPo Burrito with corn-pumpkin seed relish is especially popular, as is the Shepherd’s Pie with mushroom gravy and the Reuben, made with tempeh, caramelized onions, and housemade sauerkraut. The weekday happy hour draws people in, who come for craft beers like Lucky Lab Scottish Ale and Anderson Valley Winter Solstice. Proper hosts live music on Friday and Saturday nights, with acts like the Stumptown Jug Thumpers and Anna and the Underbelly. 

Insider Tip:

The neighborhood, named for founding father James John, dates approximately 1865 and is best known for the nearby St. Johns Bridge, a dramatic green steel bridge that crosses the Willamette River.
