One of Portland's best kept secrets, this floating cafe is docked in McCuddy's Marina on Hayden Island. Seafood baskets, burgers, salads and fruity blended cocktails make this a great restaurant for a casual lunch on a cheerful riverside patio.
Generally speaking, you?d be hard pressed to consider a view of Sandy romantic, but this is no everyday restaurant with a view. Slide into one of the tall U-shaped booths and enjoy a menu where meat sings, cocktails are meticulous and rounded floor-to-ceiling give an exotic sheen to Sandy Blvd.
