I could start each day with a vanilla latte like this one, and for the three days I was in Portland I did. There was no reason not to, especially since I don’t know where I can go in Rochester, Buffalo or the western New York area to find one like this (but if anyone would like to point me in the right direction please do). While it’s a lot harder to find a bad cup of coffee in the northwest, this trip I found the best over at Barista. Jimmy + Marianne, whose wedding I photographed this weekend, told us it was the place to go and we weren’t disappointed. Their coffee – and this drink in particular – could change even the staunchest unbeliever. On top of that, everyone working there was friendly and welcoming and made me want to become a regular.

Portland is just such a livable city. I know I’m not the only east coaster who thinks so as many residents made the move from the east or midwest at some point as I found in conversation. I’m not sure if I could actually do so myself but it’s fun to entertain the idea for a while, walking around and sampling eats from food carts. Food has certainly been one of the highlights of the vacation, and if you can’t tell it’s only because I didn’t want to spam facebook or instagram with too much information. We love good food and cooking and being able to eat such fresh seafood as well as such local and inventive dishes has been a treat. In the past three nights we have had small plates at Tasty n Sons, local steak from butcher and restuarant Laurelhurst Market, and sushi complete with a train that carries dishes around from Sushi Ichiban. I could go on but before I turn this in to a food blog I’ll stop.
