Highland recommend all of these:
Olympic Provisions - 5 out of 5. You'd be a fool not to come here. Deviled eggs, an insane stacked potato side and the best short ribs I've ever had.
Cheryls - 5 out of 5 - A+ brunch, with veggie fried rice and delicious egg creations.
Meat Cheese Bread - 5 out of 5 stars - Simply outstanding sandwiches. Beet and some beef thing.
Por Que No tacos - 5 out of 5 - Great tacos and drinks. Cool location.
Smokehouse 21 - 4.5 out of 5 - Really fantastic burn ends, cornbread and sauces.
Kenny and Zukes Deli - 4.5 out of 5 stars. Huge latkes and pastrami.
Tasty And Alder - 4.5 out of 5 stars. Korean Fried Chicken + Bim Bop
Stumptown Coffee - Can't rate b/c I don't like coffee. But they had good bagels and breakfast pastries.
Peet's Coffee and Tea - N/A and yes, it's a chain. No coffee. But good breakfast stuff. Respective alternative to Starbucks.
