If you’re in need of a mid-afternoon snack, head to Olympia Provisions in Southeast for homemade charcuterie and a cheese board. This spot was the first of their many locations around Portland, with another restaurant and a few sausage shops scattered across the city. As soon as you walk in and see the pork cuts and sausages hanging from the ceiling, you know you’re about to eat very well. They have a wide range of boards available throughout the day, along with great sandwiches like their beef tongue pastrami reuben and The Randy, with blue cheese, apples, and ham, for when you want to turn your afternoon snack into a proper meal.
