Papa Haydn, located both on Northwest 23rd Avenue and Southeast Milwaukie Avenue, is a European restaurant that serves delicious food, but most importantly, is famous for its delectable desserts. The Eastside restaurant was opened in 1978 to promote fine dining in Portland. Papa Haydn is responsible for having Portland's first espresso machine, so coffee loves, rejoice! The Westside restaurant was then opened in 1983. Now Papa Haydn has become a city favorite, and has everything you need to enjoy lunch and dinner. Next to the Westside restaurant is Jo Bar, which was opened in 1995. Jo Bar has a great happy hour.
