Rimsky-KorsaKoffee House

Their iconic dessert of Raspberry Fool is delicious.
Rimsky-KorsaKoffee House has been in this house in southeast
Portland for as long as I can remember.
If you don't know where it is, you might miss it.
It is a "kitschy" place full of whimsy.
For the women, make sure you stop by the bathroom.
What fun!
It was opened by Goody Cable, who also owns the B&B
Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon.
Definitely a coffee house, though they do serve a cup of tea too.
The desserts and sometimes live music is the highlight.
A great place to go after the show.

Rimsky-KorsaKoffee House
707 S.E. 12th Ave., Portland, OR.
Open from 7PM - 12 midnight.

Jake's Famous Crawfish

Sometimes a month flies by and I haven't shared with you here.
A special meal for my husband and I is always Jake's Famous Crawfish.
We especially love coming here for dependable, delicious seafood.
On the other hand I can say there berry cobbler is worth a visit too.
It is a great place to take out of town visitors and gives them a touch
of downtown Portland and an old established seafood restaurant.

reservations probably are a good idea, but we have 
sometimes gotten in without them.
