I've been here many times to take dessert home. But the wife and I had a little time to kill on NW 23rd. So we came in for lunch. Food excellent. Loved the warm cauliflower salad. Service was on their own time. Prices a little high. But would come back.

Looks expensive from the outside but it is actually not! Great service and a nice break from the rush on 23rd Street.

I just had a perfect meal with my daughter at Papa Hayden's in Portland . It's quaint - but on a delightful shopping street. We split the steak frittes, spring vegetable risotto and lemon pie ... Great service / loved our meal .

Outstanding variety of incredible desserts. The German chocolate cake was outstanding as was two of the other thee desserts we tried. The fourth was fine but turns out I'm not a fan of shortbreads.

This was my third visit to this cosy restaurant in my favourite Street in Portland. Delicious food, their salad with balsamic reduction was amazing. Cakes are a speciality and worth a visit for these alone, we were full but took home some lemon chiffon cake which was fluffy and light - best I've ever had!

Yes, my sandwich tasted great. I couldn't believe the grease on my hands and I certainly couldn't eat a full sandwich with this much oil. Served with fries (yes, I could have chosen a salad but we were off to a full vegetarian meal for dinner so didn't) which were very tasty (and oily.) Six of us ate and six... More

OK, people freakin' love this place. So why was I less than impressed? Mostly, I believe it was the cattle car treatment of getting seated and the fairly long wait for service. The food quality, like all the review point out, is excellent. It's a limited menu, but you should find enough variety, and you will definitely experience good flavors.... More

Al D, Thanks for your review. We appreciate hearing your opinion. Glad to hear the food was excellent as well as the desserts. If you decide to return sooner than in ten years or so you, may want to give our original location on the East side of PDX a try as it's 1/3 the size of our NW location.... More

Papa Haydn is definitely a place you want to visit if you have a sweet tooth. I would say they have at least 20 different cakes you can choose from, each incredibly delicious. I had the chocolate truffle cake which was incredibly decadent and tasty. On the other hand, the actual food served there is nothing special. I had the... More
