Stopped over for lunch with the family. It was our first time there (daughters second time there) it was great. They have gluten free options for those who need gluten free. Think they have vegan too.

This was a treat! I love grilled cheese and they have a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches to choose. You can eat outside at a picnic table or inside a school bus. This is a unique restaurant that you won't see anywhere else.

Yes, they do! They had a fine gluten free bread. This place is simple, but oh so unique! Of all the delicious food we ate in Portland, this meal was the most memorable because it was a blast to the past with a twist!
