It's been a year now or so that Pastaworks on Hawthorne has closed up shop. They've migrated to NE Portland. They used to have a wonderful dessert case (which disappeared well before they closed) along with lunchtime salads, sandwiches and such. There were three or four seats to eat on bar stools to eat your lunch. Service could take a... More

I love all the fun stuff they got here to buy. Lots of new things to try and tons of arty and hip choices.

Pros: superb gourmet market in the ?? neighborhood of Portland. We came to this neighborhood just to explore and to look for a place to eat Sunday breakfast. Instead of going to a restaurant, we found this place and chose several items to eat there (at a counter) including: home made meatballs, white fish salad and delicious bread and cookies... More

The best selection of Italian fresh pastas, sauces, a large variety of cheeses, meats, breads, desserts, and much more. Great organic fresh fruits and vegetables. Large wine selection takes up the back quarter of the market. Their made fresh daily Focaccia with baked garlic is the best in town.

Stopped by on the way through town to see if the sandwiches are as good as remembered. They are. 3:00 on Christmas Eve, place was packed, the person at the meat counter gave me friendly and personalized service which resulted in two delicious sandwiches. Pastaworks still represents Portland at her artisanal foodie best.

This is an amazing European style market and grocer. All of the food is fresh but pretty pricey. I think it is worth it to have some fresh bread, meats, and pasta though! EVOE inside is a great place to have a bite to eat as well!

A great place for casual dining. They close early so lunch or afternoon delight. Bread and butter are as good as you'll get in Paris. Wine by the glass is very drinkable and the menu delivers great food at a fair price

Pastaworks has been around for many years. Offering the largest selection of Italian and Spanish wines (among other categories, and old vintages), a large case of cheese, top quality meat dept, produce, and a variety of European foods from olive oils to hard to find chocolates. Everything they offer is of best quality and the prices are very fair considering... More

The people working here (meat department guy) are rude!! The food is way to expensive, and on more than one occasion I have picked items off the shelf and that have been expired. The main reason I will not go back is the attitude I get from the employees. Everyone has a rude attitude and treat you like you are... More
