Profile

A bright, corner spot on the ground-level floor of a luxury condo building is the perfect location for re.union, a daytime café and coffee shop. Given the changing demographic of the neighborhood, the owners wanted to build a family-friendly place where you could get good food and coffee (provided by Stumptown). An interactive wall features cubbies full of knickknacks (an old radio, antique scale, a birdcage, etc.) and toys and games for kids. And a full chalkboard wall displays the menu of breakfast, salads, the soup of the day, and sandwiches on fresh Balthazar bread. The thick pumpkin-and-black-pepper soup has a strong, not-too-sweet flavor. Kale is mixed into organic red quinoa, along with avocado and halved cherry tomatoes, topped with a citrus dressing. The popular fancy grilled cheese stacks bacon strips in melted cheddar and a touch of sweet tomato jam between soft pieces of thick bread. The thin slices of beet and vodka-cured salmon get lost in dill, buried in a comparatively massive ciabatta roll. Grilled and breaded chicken schnitzel is again overwhelmingly bready as a sandwich, but at least it’s good bread. The spicy potato salad is only for garlic lovers, with the green-olive-and-aïoli mix getting completely masked. Eldad’s Turkish and Israeli heritage shows in the malaby, an interesting rosewater flan topped with crushed pistachios and coconut.
