Portland Happy Hour: The Alameda Cafe

Posted by Kelly

It is obvious that the happy hour trend is spreading and Portland restaurants are all over it. Recently I went with my grandparents - Mimi and Papa - and Adam to one of their regular dinner spots and to my surprise it was happy hour time. The Alameda Cafe recently started offering a daily happy hour from 4 to 6pm.

The food menu's cheap eats include sweet potato fries, pretty tasty and made with real sweet potatoes instead of yams, chicken skewers with a Mediterranean salad (very good), soup, chorizo sliders, and caesar salad. For their drinks they focus on traditional cocktails for $5-$5.50, listed on their menu with a description of the drinks origin. They also offer discounted beer and wine. If nothing on the happy hour menu is quite hitting the spot, they have a great dinner menu as well. I would highly recommend the scallops ($9) listed under the appetizers!
