“Our guide Herb was amazing – fun, funny, and very knowledgeable. The trip was well organized, a great pace, and a great value as we left STUFFED. The food and drinks were very diversified and we loved everything we tried. If anything it was too much food as we took food home and ended up skipping our dinner plans but I wouldn’t change a thing. I loved being treated with a drink on a hot day to start and the taco was my favorite bite of the trip although everything was wonderful! We would love to see more of these tours from Lost Plate around the US. Hit me up if you make it to Seattle!”

“It was such a fun way to be able to experience a greater number of items from the various pods. We both liked every single item that was chosen. Herb, our guide, was super friendly & quick to answer all of our groups questions. Even ones that weren’t about food, or possibly didn’t paint his city in the best light, he was always honest and took the time to explain everything. We had gone back and forth trying to decide if we should book this & we were both so glad that we did.”

“Evangel was great! She knew so much about the city and the food and provided us with the best hospitality and service. We sampled so many dishes and they were big portions too! There was a little walking which was nice to burn off a little food for more food. Highly recommend this tour if you’re looking to try out some food truck foods so you can get a taste of a variety of things.”

“The experience was way more than I was expecting. Herb was an excellent tour guide sharing about the foods, carts, pods and patios. He shared about the people who started the carts of the food we were eating. He shared their stories and explained some history of the food. It was a great assortment of many different countries, all with an Oregonian twist. He explained that Oregon grown food helped curate the taste. The drinks are worth mentioning as well. Refreshing and something I would never think to buy on my own. Everything was carefully picked and was completely different. Great tour!! I would definitely recommend! Come hungry! The dessert was the absolute best!”

Highly Recommended!

“We took this tour as as part of my husband’s birthday and Michelle was very accommodating and allowed us to bring our 1 and 3 year old along with us. The donuts and coffee were all unique and delicious and Michelle did a great job of telling us the history of each place and coffee in general as we went along. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore more unique and local coffee and donut shops that Portland has to offer!”

“We planned this tour for our first morning in Portland hoping it would provide us with a basic knowledge of the Portland downtown area as well as some delicious donuts and coffee. We got all this and more!! Michelle clearly loves her city and, in between donut and coffee stops, provided us with history of the city and beer and food recommendations. I would highly recommend this tour as you will gather so much information to allow you to fully enjoy your Portland stay…..did I mention the donuts and coffee. We enjoyed the stops so much we revisited during our stay!!

“Lost plate coffee and donut tour was the greatest. Michelle was informative and friendly and really educated me about coffee and Portlands significance to the new coffee movement. The coffee was great and so were the donuts. I especially liked when the barista at 40 Pounds coffee showed me how to pour over brew. My wife and I had a great time.”

“Michelle was a delightful and informative host on this tour, improving my knowledge of coffee and Portland’s significance to the 3rd wave of coffee roasters and brewers. My wife and I had a very good time on our walk from place to place and Michelle included some history of downtown Portland in her conversation as well. The donuts were delicious and this tour was the highlight of my day.”

“This is a wonderful tour exploring Downtown Portland and finding great coffee and donut shops! Come hungry cause we tried sooo many donuts. The coffee was amazing as well, all different kinds of styles. My favorite was the latte, so creamy and sweet. Our guide, Michelle, was so awesome and really made us feel welcome. I highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Portland who wants to try lots of coffee and donuts and explore Downtown with a great tour guide!”
