The secret’s out: If you want to check out New Portland, including everything from creative cuisine to artisanal boutique shopping, head to Division Street.
The district has undergone a transformation in recent years, especially near the Clinton/SE 12th Ave MAX Station. This area, once an out-of-the-way light industrial zone, is now home to some of the newest and most interesting shops in town.
At the corner of SE 11th & Division sits Pine State Biscuits, a restaurant dedicated to dressing up the perfect biscuit. Next door is an import store, Voyager, and a boutique, AVIDD, that features chic apparel, gifts and art (there’s even an in-house artist painting every day of the week). The nearby Ford Building houses studio spaces and artisanal shops — this is where you’ll find MoonBrine’s all-natural pickles and BlaqPaks bike bags.
There’s lots to do — and drink — once the sun goes down, too. You can’t miss the beer garden patio at Apex (or the big BAR sign above Double Dragon). Across the street, Beermongers has a selection of more than 600 bottles, in case you’re looking for something to take home.
