With more than 700 miles of dedicated bike lanes, easy access to public transportation, uses of renewable energy, development of waste reduction and recycling systems, and a growing number of green buildings and farmer’s market, it is without surprise that Portland continuously ranks as the most sustainable and greenest city in America.
Beyond its reputation for local food and farms, Portland restaurants are committed to operating sustainably by designing eco-friendly spaces, using biodegradable to-go containers, composting food waste, and incorporating other environmental practices into their operation.
Tin Shed Garden Café
From farm-to-shed, Tin Shed's beef, chicken and eggs are all free-range, their dairy products are free of hormones, their coffee is organic and shade-grown, and they will compost 100% of what’s left on your plate. Fresher than fresh, some of their produce comes from its own garden.
Marco’s Café offers a trans fat free menu with cage free eggs, hormone free meats, hormone free milk, and organic fair trade coffee. Marco’s Café supports local suppliers, recycles 95% of all their waste and uses solar-hot water.
