Best idea since sliced bread – wow. Cool doesn't really do this place justice. It has a fresh new idea and has put that into a super cool building. I don't know what the pearl was before it was the pearl but imagine this has that chic industrial feel that it might have. food is fab and great prices...and names! went to just look, walked, in and ended up trying a salad and sandwich (huge servings btw) and even used some of the free doodling stuff on the table, somthing I have not done since grade school! cool art on the walls. i liked that there were some people lounging and drinking, one was working, and a couple of gals were painting..good vibe! Not too artsy fartsy but rather just hip and creative. I'd go a heartbeat. Oh! And as I was leaving a model came in to pose for sketching!

Hey Food Junkie! Thanks for stopping in to check us out! We are a little off the beaten path, but you totally picked up on the cool, underground, eclectic vibe of the Northwest neighborhood!! We are in the process of trying to name the district! Up for discussion: Northwest Design District, NoLo (North of Lovejoy), the Black Pearl... Any ideas???

Such great energy in this neighborhood and we can't wait til the weather warms up and people can sit out on our patio and enjoy views of the Fremont Bridge! Thanks again for coming in and for the great review!

Great new concept! – After hearing about The Canvas opening in NW, I decided to stop in for a beer and some sketching after work. The space is large, yet comfortable and there are tables and art materials for drawing or the option to simply belly up to the bar. The owner was there and was super friendly. I ordered a quesidilla, that I can't recall the name of, but it had beans, corn and cheese and was delicious and freshly made. There were a few young people just drinking and a few people working on paintings and the like. a great new idea for Portland. Give it a try for yourself!

Hi Foodisfantastic!

You must have had the Diego Rivera, by far our most popular veggie 'dilla! We can also make those gluten-free with corn tortillas!! Everything is made fresh in the kitchen, so I'm glad you picked up on the yum-factor of the food! We also have some new vegan and gluten-free desserts from CCP bakery! Oh, and a new beer on tap - Ninkasi Total Domination IPA - by popular demand!! Thanks for the props! We'll look forward to seeing you again soon!
