“Just what I enjoy when traveling for work”
Reviewed 10 February 2013 via mobile

Needing to waste time I decided to go by. The actual road with all the antique shops, restaurants and old town views makes it worth the trip. The antique stores were decently priced and some will let you barter with them, within reason. It's nice to be able to take walk down the street, grab a sandwich from the bakery or some tea. A nice quite community, every place I went was very friendly, then again most of Portland is like that. I spend more than 300 days a year traveling and visiting places like Sellwood is what I truly enjoy!!

“This is a wonderful neighborhood”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

Sellwood used to be its own little town, and in most ways, it still feels like that. It's a neighborhood you don't even need a car in. Great shops, great grocers, great restaurants, wonderful parks, near the river, bike-friendly, and really lovely little homes. It's the neighborhood I wished I lived in.

“Older area of town”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

Lots of antique/thrift shops that take one back to yesteryears. It's a funky little area with some off beat things to see. Fat Albert's for breakfast is a must. There are only a few tables so you will probably have to wait, but the food is worth it. Forget about counting calories that day and enjoy the meal.

“Lovely Neighbourhood”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

Sellwood is well worth a visit, with it's selection of antique shops; cafe's; river parks etc. It is a lovely neighbourhood, and a leisurely cycle ride along the cycleway from Portland city centre.
