Tucked next to the Portland Art Museum is one of my favorite little cafes. When you step into Behind the Museum Cafe, it transports me back to Japan, where we spent a few weeks back in 2014 (geez – how has it been that long already?!) to visit my brother and sister-in-law who live there.
The space is filled with gorgeous Japanese art and clothing; and their menu with delicious Japanese treats that bring back so many happy memories of our trip. Like their onigiri rice balls with various fillings wrapped in seaweed – Brice ate thousands of in our 3-weeks in Japan. Or their creamy matcha tea lattes which I enjoyed nearly every day.
