I will be in Portland on July 15th heading to Mt. Hood. I arrive in the morning at the airport so we want to stop at any interesting spots along the Columbia River. We know about the Bonneville Dam and the fish hatchery. What about where to eat breakfast/lunch or should we wait and eat lunch at the Mt. Hood area. We love food and family run bakeries/cafes. Anything with some character. We would like to take a short hike along the way with a waterfall. We are in our 30's and active. this is a day trip as we are staying in the downtown Portland.
Thanks in advance!!
