About Multnomah Village
In southwest Portland, Multnomah Village neighborhood blends the best of the region’s suburban qualities with a charming and walkable business district. The village lies at the heart of the neighborhood, filled with sidewalk cafes, coffee houses, bakeries, bookstores, and other local shops.
For your morning caffeine fix, you’ll find no less than half a dozen coffee options within a six-block stretch. For a hearty breakfast, grab a stool at the counter or slide into a booth at Fat City Café. This old-school diner serves up all the classics along with addictive cinnamon rolls.
After breakfast, peruse the village shops, where you’ll find endless treasures. The brainchild of two science teachers, Thinker Toys is one of the coolest toy stores in Portland featuring unique, imaginative toys and a children’s playhouse. Annie Bloom Books is a thriving neighborhood bookstore that’s been in business over 40 years. The shop hosts local authors and stocks a wide range of well-curated titles on its shelves. At Indigo Traders, you’d find a beautiful assortment of Turkish linens and artisan home goods. Each month, the village shops stay open late for First Friday.
At Multnomah Arts Center, you can explore wide ranging classes for all ages in music, dance, theater, woodshop, metal arts, mixed media, printmaking, drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, textiles, and more. This vibrant space also hosts performances, gallery exhibitions, and other special events.
Within walking distance of the village, the 90-acre Gabriel Park is draped over beautiful, rolling hills. You can stroll along forested paths, work on your tennis game, or spread a blanket on the lawn for a summer evening movie under the stars. The park also features an off-leash dog park, a large skate park, sport fields, picnic areas, and a playground.
Fanning out from the village along Multnomah’s tidy tree-lined streets, you’ll find swaths of post-World War II construction sprinkled in with earlier 20th century architectural styles. You’ll also find newer condo and townhouse developments along the neighborhood’s main corridors.
