Huber's Café is the oldest restaurant in Portland, located in Downtown on the corner of Stark Street and Third Avenue. Huber's serves a complete Thanksgiving meal any time of the year.

History

Huber's Cafe began in 1879 as a "men's bar"[1] called "The Bureau Saloon" at 1st and Alder in Downtown Portland.[2]

Jake's Famous Crawfish is sometimes cited as Portland's oldest restaurant, but it was founded in 1892[3], 13 years after Huber's.

By the 1950s, Huber's was a favorite lunch place for Portland's businessmen, though it was beginning to attract more female clientele than in the past. Their specialties continued to be roast turkey, baked ham, and crab coleslaw.[4]

Cuisine

The place to go if you want to watch your bartender perform like a trained seal, dripping Bacardi 151 into your mug from three feet above his head, lighting it on fire, adding more liquor, and topping off the concoction with coffee and whipped cream. You'll pay $9.25 for this circus act.[5]
