Fodor's Review

This expansive 681-acre tract of mostly industrial and commercial buildings was largely ignored by all but local workers until shops, galleries, and restaurants began opening in some of the neighborhood's handsome, high-ceilinged buildings beginning in the '90s. These days, it's a legitimately hot neighborhood for shopping and coffeehouse-hopping by day, and dining and clubbing at night, and a slew of high-end apartment buildings have added a residential component to the Central Eastside. The neighborhood lies just across the Willamette River from Downtown—it extends along the riverfront from the Burnside Bridge to south to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) and Division Street, extending east about a dozen blocks to S.E. 12th Avenue. Businesses of particularly note in these parts include urban-chic coffeehouses (Water Avenue, Coava), breweries (Base Camp Brewing, Cascade Brewing Barrel House, Commons Brewery), shops and galleries, and restaurants (Kachka, Le Pigeon, Revelry, Taylor Railworks, Trifecta Tavern).
