Afternoon Tea | Beaverton, Westside

Overall, such a fantastic experience. The decor is immersive and cohesive to the vintage steampunk theme. Each table has a different set of matching teacups and plates. We did the afternoon tea service and each got our own pot of tea along with a very generous portion of many small bites. You won’t leave stuffed full, but that’s not what tea is about!!! Overall, very worth the time and price. More

The best of Italian food is so delicious and reasonably priced. The owners clearly enjoy sharing their heritage with their customers- it’s more than just cooking food.

Discover Portland

If Portlandia’s eccentric humor made you anxious to visit this west coast gem, rest assured, food is no laughing matter to these folks. This quirky City of Roses, beloved for its food truck scene, is holding its own in the world of fine dining, as well. Farm-to-table is practically a religion here, so whether you’re grabbing some bar bites, coursing through a James Beard-awarded tasting menu, or sampling a unique treat from a food cart, everything will be fresh, both in style and quality. Portlandians dress casually, act friendly, and are always up to get a little bit weird… or a lot. If an open-minded curiosity takes the lead, you can enjoy devilish doughnuts, reverse happy hours, or a filet at a famed strip club. Unexpected as it may be, their options for Sushi and Thai are plentiful and flavorfully spot-on. Whatever strikes your fancy in this inventive cycling city, your taste-buds will be doing wheelies all the way home.
