Olympic Provisions has two locations in Portland, one in the Southeast and one in the Northwest section of town. The menu at each is slightly different, with a few similarities. We visited the SE location for lunch.
Located in a former warehouse district just across the river near the Morrison bridge. Olympic Provisions sits on the corner of a non-descript warehouse that’s been converted into offices. You’ll need to look out for the small sign over the door on the corner of the building, otherwise you’ll coast right on by. Inside, the space reminds you of an old deli/meat market. The best thing here is that most of the tables are two tops, so they can easily be arranged for just about any size party. There is a small deli case, where you can buy house made kielbasa, bacon, sausage, wieners and more.
Atmosphere & Service
Inside Olympic Provisions, the space reminds you of an old deli/meat market. The best thing here is that most of the tables are two tops, so they can easily be arranged for just about any size party. Service here was very friendly and fast. There is a small deli case, where you can buy house made kielbasa, bacon, sausage, wieners and more. This place is on the smaller side, so you may have to wait a bit if you don’t have a reservation. This is a sought out place to eat, so don’t think it goes unnoticed just because of it’s location.
Fantastic. We went for brunch and sampled both lunch and breakfast items. We tried the hash, which featured house made kielbasa. Another item we loved was the Hot Capicola sandwhich. The soup of the day was some of the best we’ve had, as were the house pickled vegetables and house made goat cheese, jam and bread. The drinks here were also good. We had the house Bloody Mary, which if you like ’em spicy, this is the place. They have a nice, but short selection of wines and other drinks as well. Just perfect for a place this size.
We wouldn’t hesitate to come back here. It’s definitely worth the 10 minute walk/taxi ride from downtown. It’s one of the places you don’t mind lingering the afternoon away with good drinks and good food.
