Neighborhood Vibe

This is a popular historical neighborhood with a comfortable family vibe.  It feels like a classic old neighborhood where people still know their neighbors and enjoy spending time at the park and school events, as well as hanging out at local establishments that have been in the neighborhood for decades.  Homes and lawns are well kept and show pride of ownership.  There are some wonderful views along Alameda Ridge, so this is also a popular neighborhood for walking tours.

Restaurants and Businesses

There is a cute shopping and dining strip along Fremont heading into the Beaumont Wilshire neighborhood.  Coffee shops, boutiques, new establishments, and classic neighborhood restaurants that have been in the neighborhood for decades can be found along this strip.  

Joining Portland's wide array of micro-breweries, Alameda has it's own brewpub. Try the Alameda Brewhouse.

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast with the locals while reading the regional paper at the Alameda Cafe. Enjoy a delicious breakfast of homemade waffles, bacon and eggs, or some quiche.  Service is always friendly, and the warm cozy dining room is a wonderful place to spend some time on a cool rainy Portland day.
