Are you a foodie that's always asking "where do the locals like to go?" whenever you visit a new place? If so, this is the tour for you! SPOILER ALERT: We won't go to Voodoo Doughnuts on this tour. Instead, we will visit all of the best doughnut shops that are frequented by Portland locals. We will learn about the ingredients and flavors in the doughnuts we taste, the process used for making the doughnuts, and the shop owners' unique stories. At one of the doughnut shops we visit, you'll try some artisanal chai tea from one of the most celebrated chefs in Portland. We will meet me at our first doughnut shop in Northeast Portland and will wrap up the tour at Powell's City of Books in The Pearl District, a neighborhood that is perfect for foodie tourism with many different restaurants and breweries loved by Portland locals. If you're visiting from out-of-town, I can provide tons of recommendations for adventures during your stay! FAMILIES ARE WELCOME! I love kids :) **** I am not booking dates for the tour until summer 2020 BUT if you want to book a tour and there are 3 or more in your party, please message me and we can try to work something out! Otherwise, let's eat lots of donuts together this summer! ****
My friends and coworkers don't call me Mrs. Portland for no reason and (confession!) doughnuts are my favorite food. In addition to doughnuts, hospitality and hosting are truly my passions so let me be your new local friend, your foodie insider, your deep-dimpled "All Things PDX" hype girl with a killer sweet tooth!
I'll provide doughnuts from 3 iconic Portland doughnut shops.
I'll provide artisanal chai tea at one of the doughnut shops we visit on the tour.
I'll provide transportation. If you'd rather arrange transportation for yourself, that's ok too!
We will meet me at our first doughnut shop and I will provide transportation to the next doughnut shop location (or you can arrange your own transportation, if you'd prefer). From there, we'll walk a couple of blocks to our third and final doughnut shop. We will wrap up at Powell's City of Books in The Pearl District. There are many sight-seeing, beer-drinking, and foodie tourism opportunities in the Pearl, if you plan on exploring!
Umbrella, comfortable shoes, questions about Portland!
It's possible that we might encounter some lines- that's ok! We can get to know each other and discuss all that we love about Portland. I guarantee these doughnuts will be worth the wait!
