Conveniently located next to Portland State University. Busy but fairly quick service. Offers consistently good food and service. We had the original yumm bowl (beans, rice, veggies, etc.) and the teriyaki chicken. The chicken skewers were dry and overcooked, but the rest was tasty. The sauce is what everyone loves. Prices were $7-$10. Dine in or get an order to go.

Nothing special about the Cafe, but it is good food at a reasonable price with a decent place to eat. The basic dish is beans with rice and their signature sauce to which you can add chicken, beef or tofu as well as a full array of veggies. Their set up allows for quick ordering with quick delivery to your table. Don't expect anything more than a nutrious meal in a short period of time. This one is set on the Portland State University campus with a crowd of students, staff and faculty at lunch time. If the college crowd likes it, it must be good!

I have a soft spot for Cafe Yumm. As much as I try to support food carts I absolutely love the way they do their bowls here.

My favorite is the smoky - it's not particularly spicy but it has great flavor. You can customize Any of the toppings. If you're watching weight considering doing a 1/2 order of the YUMM sauce. You can also go online and on their website you can see the calories and fat for each bowl with whatever custom ingredients you add. Vegan? Order it 'vegan' and they take away the cheese and sour cream and add extra avocado. Delicious!

The medium bowl is a great lunch size, a large is you're extra hungry. They also do pretty fast to go service.

Also, an added bonus, they sort the trash so things get recycled! Yay!

We tried Cafe yumm yesterday for a quick lunch. The bowl meals are small, medium and large. I ordered a large and it was the size of an average bowl. It was soooo delicious that I was glad I got the large. The tofu skewer is the best...barbeque sauce and it was very large! Their special "yumm sauce" is to die for
Try it...
