Named after the coin that Frances Pettygrove and Asa Lovejoy used to decide Portland's name in 1845, Portland Penny Diner investigates the collision of Pacific Northwest immigrant food cultures and the Native American's pure approach to food. The “diner" concept was the original food cart of the late 1800's, dubbed “the lunch wagon." Portland Penny Diner is the rightful child of that bygone era, wed with Portland's free spirit that brings people in out of the rain.
Portland Penny Diner is a counter service diner featuring relaxed seating and grab and go options. The day begins with breakfast, where fresh made morning pastries will include Reuben Croissants, Today's Quickbreads (banana, apple) and Toaster Tarts. Portland Penny Diner features a new generation of breakfast sandwiches that can be enjoyed at a table or wrapped and ready to go.
