Used them for a business gathering in Portland, and they did a great job and were very pleasant to work with. Would highly recommend for a catered working lunch.

The hotel staff recommended the place. Good food, fun Knick knacks, bakery yummies, and a coffee bar. Pretty busy but worth wait.

Every trip to Portland finds me here at least once. It's near Washington park rose garden, and the trendy 23rd street shopping district. Oh yeah, the food and service was outstanding! Besides the deli, there's a bakery, candy counter, and a coffee bar
