It goes without saying that desserts at Papa Haydn are fabulous. The patio is also lovely if the weather is good. Inside is a little noisy. The fish special -- Dover sole in a lemon butter caper sauce -- was a little disappointing because it didn't have much flavor. It needed a little garlic, more lemon, and some white wine.... More

Our favorite place to eat in Portland. I almost hate to give it a good review as I don't want to battle crowds. But the food is always good, the desserts are amazing and the wait staff is great. We've been going there for 30 years and have never been disappointed.

We have been here many times and have never been let down. Brunch and dinner are amazing. The service is good, the food is great, and the desserts are fantastic. I would highly suggest a reservation, as this place is always packed. I had the smoked trout salad and hubby had a Caesar so we could save room for dessert.... More

My sister and I visited Papa Haydn for lunch and had a wonderful meal. We decided to have the fondue, with bread and apples and vegetables. It was delicious. We followed it up with Caesar salads and finished it off with a chocolate raspberry cake. Service was great, water glasses were kept full, and we had a very nice time.... More

I had the hash it was pulled pork with adouille sausage. Presentation and quality of products West Excellent. They make their own yogurt and granola extremely high-quality. The team seem to work together very well.

OK it's not all about the cakes, but save room for dessert. We've had many meals at both Papa Haydn locations over the years. Great food, prepared to a high standard with some of the most caring and professional serving staff around. Cake? From wedding cakes to ethereal European desserts, snagging a Papa Haydn sweet is a must.

Papa Hayden (East) is on the northern edge of the charming Sellwood area. I have been here many times for lunch or happy hour, and it has always been a relaxing and memorable experience. Sometimes people think of Papa Hayden as a dessert destination, but my favorite time to come is for Happy Hour which starts at 3:00. In good... More

We have eaten here three times but there was a ten year gap between second and third time. Our verdict is that this is still a very good restaurant as the crowds can attest.
