Back to Close-In SE Portland ~ Hawthorne Street Cafe


I had eaten at the Hawthorne Street Cafe a number of times and have always had a very good experience.  Moe, the owner, is a very gracious host, he comes to all the tables to greet his patrons and make sure they are having a good time.  The food has always been attractive, above par, and delicious.  I can recommend the Eggs Benedict, which is one of my favorites.  The Hawthorne Street Cafe is located on the corner of SE Hawthorne Boulevard and SE 34th Avenue, with parking only available on the street.  It is also right on the TriMet bus Line 14 route.


Looking forward to seeing you all there!

      At the designated time that the event started, the people who arrived on time were able to fit around the one table. We had not gotten any notice that any of the people who hadn't shown up yet were running late. Actually by the time I had arranged my stuff at the end of the table to allow another seat, (exactly as the people at the other end of the table had done) you had already turned around and left. Sorry for any misunderstanding.

      Lisa, Janet & Petra: I didn't know that being 6 minutes late could effect how many people would fit around the table. By the way, how would I give you notice that I was lost, I don't have your phone number. Thank you for making me feel unwelcome. The complaints of there not being room at the table and being too crowded were hurtful and unkind. You shouldn't judge, you don't know what it took to get there.

    Thanks Gary for another good choice. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. We were cramped but we all had a good time. I would enjoy going there again.
