On your first day in Portland, Rose Foods should be your first stop. Open daily from 7am-2pm, this new-school deli specializes in bagels, fish, and coffee. You can usually expect a line, but the friendly staff is so efficient that you’ll reach the front before you’ve even decided which bagel sandwich you’re getting. Might as well pick up one of their excellent t-shirts, mugs, or totes while you’re at it - you’ll want a memento of this perfect meal.
