Truly beautiful place.

Maybe a breakfast at Bob's Red Mill? (Not open Sundays)
They grind most anything. Neat place.

You'll want to get away more but just know that Portland has a small wilderness area within. Called Forest Park with a good trail system. If the need to walk/jog off liquid calories occurs.

The art of the put down.

nicely done.

But McMenamins is better than Starbucks.
It is a chain with unique settings.
Food is good.

Typical beer selection:

We had lunch at H.U.B. Hopworks urban brewery a couple of weeks ago. Nice beer, all organic too I think, if you care.

I think someone already mentioned it but Migration has some of the best beer in town.

Jupiter hotel is also an option and pretty close to a lot of breweries.
