A new feature of this blog that I am really looking forward to diving into is my eating out posts. Each week I will feature one of my favorite restaurants. TO start off I would like to share my favorite work lunch spot. Some times I feel like I need to get out of the office for lunch and relax on my own. On these days I walk down the street to Bella’s Italian Bakery. I discovered this cute little bakery shortly after my office moved to the Lents Neighborhood in SE Portland. They have a wide range of pastries and baked goods, gourmet sandwiches and specialty groceries. Sometimes I grab a sandwich and take a walk with it. Other times I sit in their brightly lit dining area and decompress from my day of work. There menu is constantly rotating so there is always something new to try. They also sell slabs of focaccia by the quarter, half and full sheet pan. I love to pick up a focaccia slab and bring it home for dinner. On Thursdays they do pizza dinner and Sundays you can pick up lasagna. Thank you to Bella’s for being the perfect break during busy work weeks!
