The St. Johns neighborhood lies at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers. Though increasing in popularity, this North Portland neighborhood retains its small-town charm with locally owned shops, pubs, and cafes. A few of our favorites are . . .
Taqueria Santa Cruz is tucked away in the back of a Mexican grocery store and bakery. The unassuming store has rave reviews from the city’s top foodies and me for its enormous, budget-friendly tacos and burritos, the authentic flavor of Mexico in each bite. They also have a deli counter of marinated meats making dinner prep super easy. Without a doubt one of my favorite places to eat. Carne Asada Burrito is everything then some.
Kruger’s Marketplace and Food Pod houses a handful of food carts with tasty treats and drinks such as savory pies, clam chowder, beef brisket, eggy sandwiches and one heck of a vegan falafel sandwich/ salad.
Slims will be your local neighborhood watering hole with tall drinks and some of the tastiest food you can buy in a bar. This is not your typical bar menu.
Chop is new to the area was (formerly on trendy N. Williams) and has been highly anticipated.
One of the city’s most cherished green spaces, Cathedral Park attracts dog walkers, picnic goers, boaters, and wedding parties. Mark your summer calendar for the annual Cathedral Park Jazz Festival. St. Johns’ two top movie theaters were both built more than a century ago, but that doesn’t stop them from showing first-run films with classic style and cutting-edge cinematic technology. Better yet, St. Johns Twin Cinema and McMenamins St. John Theater & Pub both serve local beer and dinner treats. One of these theaters is rumored to be haunted.
A tiny neighborhood with a mighty punch of fun. Come see for yourselves:
