Visited this restaurant after New Years and tried the vegan pancake, vegan breakfast burrito, and vegan scramble. All were delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant. Highly recommend

Visited January 6th for First Friday Art Walk, the night when a number of the local museums are open until 9 p.m. and free of charge.
Local Sprouts was also open until 9 p.m. but their website reflected that they were only open until 5.
We were happy to be serenaded by musician Sarah Logan and friends. There was a special First Friday menu which is a limited menu so there is not a lot of opportunity to ask for entrees to be modified but since they have a good mix of items you should be able to find something to your liking. I gather that their focus is on Fresh local ingredients. They had vegan options which was great to see.
I ordered the regular macaroni and cheese and it was spectacular. Another friend had a salad that listed root vegetables- I would recommend asking what the root vegetables are before ordering if you have a dislike of any to avoid surprises. Another friend had a chicken pasta dish and liked it. You order and pay at the counter and it is brought over to you. How promptly our meals arrived seemed to depend on how busy they were. Another friend waited 15 minutes to get a bowl of soup, yet our bigger meals came out just as fast but we ordered later when it wasn't as busy.
It's a clean place; an eclectic mix of furnishings and patrons. When you are through with your meal, you bus your own plates to the back of the place and follow the instructions accordingly, putting recyclables, compostables, and dirty dishes into their respective bins.
I have heard through the local grapevine that they have excellent breakfast as well and that shall be my next visit.

While passing through Portland, my wife and I were in search of the ultimate breakfast locale. It was suggested that we try Local Sprouts Co-op. What a nice surprise. This was the ideal spot for us. What a joy to have a healthy, organic, delicious, freshly prepared breakfast. The restaurant lists on its wall the names and locations of their locally sourced foods. Nice touch. We enjoyed our meal there and returned a second time before continuing on our travels. We were even treated to a live performance by a local string band. Loved this place!

Very cute and comfortable little neighborhood hang out. Had hot tea and listened to live music. They also serve beer & wine good to know for next time.

The staff acted as if we were not there. Food was fine. But the lack of basic interactions between customer and servers was enough of a reason to not go back.
