Lake Oswego, the beautiful Portland suburb, is growing! With newer tasty restaurant options in the updated downtown plaza, the decision of where to eat in Lake Oswego has become a difficult one (in a good way!).
The same owners of beloved Lake Oswego coffee shop Chuck’s Place founded Chuckie Pies in 2013 as their way to bring New York and Neapolitan pizza to the LO community. Lisa Shaw, co-owner, studied the technique of making authentic Neapolitan pizza dough, then developed the menu using high quality seasonal and traditional ingredients. Lisa and Chuck Shaw-Ryan have lived in Lake Oswego for over 2 years and are actively involved in the community. Their beautiful pizza restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego, and not only they serve delicious pizzas, but hearty appetizers, unique drinks, and an amazing affogato!
Not feeling like pizza? Right across the street from Chuckie Pies is Holy Taco. Holy Taco serves traditional southern Mexican cuisine with contemporary American influences in their modern-upscale restaurant. All food is made from scratch and locally sourced when the opportunity arises. Holy Taco serves breakfast on the weekends and lunch and dinner every day! From nachos and tacos to burritos and bowls, Holy Taco has a dish for everyone. If the sun is out, we recommend taking a seat on the patio and sipping on a margarita!
Bamboo Sushi, the world’s first certified sustainable sushi restaurant, with locations throughout the Portland area, made their suburb debut and came to Lake Oswego in the summer of 2018. Located next to Chuckie Pies in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego, Bamboo Sushi serves sustainably caught, humanely raised, and naturally grown sushi rolls, traditional nigiri, and Japanese inspired plates. They have a full cocktail and saké selection, and their chefs craft specials specific to each location based on what is in season. Not a sushi fan? No worry! Bamboo Sushi also serves a delectable Wagyu Burger.
St Honoré Boulangerie
St. Honoré wants you to feel a connection with the old-world charms of France when you step inside. Their rows of wicker baskets are filled with freshly baked bread and their cases of sugary pastries convey Northwest and French culture. They aim to create an experience for customers that is open and inviting, and they have a menu crafted with quality ingredients and traditional baking techniques that resembles French baking tradition combined with seasonal ingredients and flavors. St. Honoré is the ideal place to grab a pastry, breakfast, sandwich or coffee. Sit and stay a while as their gorgeous outdoor seating is at the corner of the plaza that overlooks the lake! Don’t forget to treat yourself to a decadent dessert, we really enjoy an éclair or the black forest cake.
Pizzeria sul Lago
Because you can never have too much pizza! Pizzeria sul Lago is Italian for “Pizzeria by the Lake”. They opened next door to St. Honoré as a neighborhood pizzeria that brings Neapolitan-style pizza to a beautiful setting. They are committed to traditional pizza-making while also using traditional PNW ingredients, so their menu often includes seasonal changes. They have great relationships with local farmers, and shop right outside their front door at the Lake Oswego Farmers Market during the summer months! They are open for lunch and dinner serving perfectly charred wood-fired pizza. They have lakeside patio seating, and plenty of indoor seating, where you can watch your pizza cook in their gorgeous tiled pizza oven!
