When fans of Portlandia head to the real city of Portland, Oregon, they may want to stop by some of the locations that inspired the show. Whether you want to dress up like a Harajuku girl and hit the coffee shop or feel like standing in line for brunch, here are a few places to start:
Stop by the feminist bookstore that inspired Women & Women First. Just don’t say “unit” or “box” or point at anything .
2. Tasty & Sons
The brunch line might look familiar, but don’t even think about cutting it.
Unfortunately, they no longer stock the Nyquil doughnut. But there’s a ton of other flavors to try.
Every vacation to Coffeelandia needs a coffee break.
