There can never be enough off-beat bars, cafes and restaurants around town to satisfy Portlanders' insatiable, quirky appetites. The Black Cat Cafe has two locations in the Northeast on Alberta Street and in an unlikely location on N Interstate in NoPo.
If $2 microbrews, reasonable and simple foods and a warm, welcoming environment strike your fancy, then go and check them out. Before you do, check out the Black Cat Cafe review I just posted from my most recent visit. Oh yeah -- and there are old-school video games at both, and free pool in NoPo!
