While driving down 23rd St., thinking about lunch, there was a parking spot right in front of Papa Haydn. Seems like it was meant to be. Great neighborhood with lots of street activity on a cooler August day. Very interesting menu and huge dessert selection....More

We really enjoyed the service and food at Papa Hayden. Our lunch was perfect except that we couldn't have desert. The desert looked great. Which we could return for deserts. Loved it. Our server took time to explain the menu.

We went here for dinner on our last night in Portland, as we were staying just down the road and the duck on the menu looked enticing. We both ordered the duck and loved it. They made good use of in season fruit and vegetables...More

I liked the burger on Brioche bun, however most items were good. As to dessert, anything will be good if not great, it is up to your personal taste.....chocolate or fruit forward or creamy. Nice to know you will not be... More

If you can, I strongly suggest reservations. Parking is on the street and can be an issue depending on the day. Go early, stroll the neighbourhood and then enjoy your meal.
