WE STARTED AS A FOOD CART
Off The Griddle began in 2010 as a food cart on SE 50th and Division Street in Portland serving made-from-scratch veggie burgers and fries, founded by Ashley Arthur and Dan Harding. Within a year we opened our first brick-and-mortar location called A.N.D Café on SE 54th and East Burnside.
In July 2017, after 6 years on Burnside St., the time came to upgrade and update our brunch service by moving into our newly restored SE 65th and Foster Rd. location. The new combination, reborn as Off The Griddle once again, includes new brunch items as well as longtime customer favorites. Our new locale also offers full bar with craft beer, cider and kombucha on draft, a full menu of custom brunch-themed cocktails including our signature Bloody Mary menu and, of course, Mimosas featuring locally squeezed orange juice.
Put simply, Off The Griddle is a vegetarian-friendly vegan restaurant serving up an ever-widening array of American-style brunch fare, most of which is available Gluten-Free as well. It is the culmination of a journey that began with a big idea, a little gumption and a beat-up, run-down food cart from a field near Boise, Idaho.
We are eternally thankful to all Portlanders and other food lovers from around the world who’ve supported Off The Griddle and made all of this possible. Come by, we’d love to see you!
