Hawthorne | Portland Oregon 3

We have been talking about Hawthorne Blvd in Portland, Oregon and how cool of a neighborhood it is. Well, it's time to discover some of the neat places that are there.

Nick's Coney Island in the Hawthorne District has had a reputation for years as having the "best dog" around. Nick, himself is long gone but, there are new owners and they are doing a super job of keeping up the image.

So, where did my wife and I go to eat when we were visiting the Hawthorne Area? Nick's of course!

I have to admit I ordered what they call a "Sloppy Hamburger" and not a coney. The burger was excellent, came with good fresh, not frozen fries and, was well priced...a "full meal deal".

On the other hand, my wife ordered a double coney and a Tomato Basil Soup as her side. The coney came with a very thick meat sauce...not with a traditional chili sauce per se. The hot dogs they serve, as well as the sauce, are first-class.  The soup was extremely thick and very tasteful.

From there we went to "Ben and Jerry's" to load up on ice cream. They are expensive, but worth the price. Need I say more?
