The Tin Shed Garden Café in the Alberta Arts District (1438 NE Alberta St.) is a good place to start, with a hearty menu that’s heavy on organic ingredients. Breakfasts like “Sin,” a house-baked sweet potato brioche French toast live up to their tempting titles. At lunchtime, Papa G’s at 2314 SE Division St. is a haven for the organic foodie, with a cheery, two-page menu of certified-organic goodies like the Organic Southern Sampler (BBQ tofu, organic Mac & Cheeze and veggies). Quick and causal eats also come courtesy of Hot Lips, a gourmet pizzeria for locavores with five Portland locations. Word around town is that you can’t beat the Tomato + Basil pie, topped with organic basil pesto, ricotta, tomato and organic hazelnuts—all delivered fresh via an electric car. Grab an afternoon brew to wash down your pizza at the all-organic Hopworks Urban Brewery (2944 SE Powell Blvd.), where handcrafted ales are always on tap. Or, plan your trip for late June, when the annual North American Organic Brewers Festival sets up in Overlook Park with more than 50 brews to sample. At 1713 NE 15th in the Irvington District, The Blossoming Lotus restaurant menu focuses on organic, vegan fusion cuisine with specialties like the Spicy Butternut & Black Bean Chili Quesadilla to warm up cool-weather travelers. For local and organic farm-to-table dining, opt for The Farm Café at 10 SE 7th Ave. or Paley’s Place Bistro & Bar, 1204 NN 21st Ave, which routinely offers seasonal plates, but is best-known for their popular fruit-and-nut bar. If you are looking for organic groceries then head to the Whole Foods Market at 1210 NW Couch Street.
