Local Favorites

We can definitely sat that ‘Most Everything’ is surrounded by most everything. you will find delicious food, scrumptious baked goods, a cafe on almost every corner, antique malls, vintage clothing boutiques, galleries featuring local artists, music venues, bars, a beautiful downtown park and a performance and Regal theater.

While setting up shop, many of the downtown restaurants have become our kitchen. As I type this, I am finishing one of my favorite burritos ever at Woody’s Tacos. The food is outstanding! For those who are wanting to spend the day in downtown Vancouver, we encourage you to walk around, visit shops, enjoy some good eats, and take in what the downtown area has to offer.

Our Favorites:

Little Pine Tree – Korean/American food VIEW ON-LINE

~ The food here is delicious, fresh and affordable with portions allowing you the enjoyment of leftovers for the next day… if you are able to wait that long. The owners, Yong and Huisuk Chi have treated us like family, even sharing their birthday cake with us. They are a delight and their food….. outstanding!

Woody’s Taco VIEW ON-LINE

We LOVE Woody’s Tacos. The location has courtyard seating with free WiFi. The food… let’s just say I could eat here every day and love life. The staff is very personable and the food is healthy. It is nice having the options for brown rice, wheat tortillas or black beans. Make sure to try the fire roasted salsa. Incredible!


Hungry for Italian? For those of you from the Yamhill County area, it reminds me of The French Bear when it was open in Newberg Oregon. Great atmosphere, music, wait staff and, oh wow, the food is outstanding. Went there for lunch last week. The favorite of the four plates was the mushroom raviolies. The flavor made my taste buds rejoice. If you are one that likes to build your own sandwich, the options are endless. Great selection of breads, cheeses, fresh veggies, quality meats and spreads. Bang for the buck is definitely during lunch.

Blind Onion Pizza VIEW ON-LINE

Patrick absolutely loves pizza and I like it maybe once every two months, that is, until I tried Blind Onion Pizza. Wowza! The crust is scrumptious and the blend of ingredients makes for one of the best pizza’s I have ever had. Patrick loves the BBQ Chicken and I love the Greek.

Je T’Aime Bakery VIEW ON-LINE

Hands down, one of the best bakeries in downtown Vancouver. The look is very french with cute outdoor seating and the mini masterpieces are magnifique. Definitely try their coffee. They french press Stumptown Roasters Coffee for their daily brew.


In my opinion, best burger around. The combination of quality meat, seasoning and garnishing ingredients makes for pure deliciousness. Wait until you try the fries! If you truly want to be ‘happy’ visit their establishment during their daily happy hour, 3-6pm. The best thing about Tommy O’s is that they are one block down from us. So happy to be one of their neighbors.
