The surprise snowstorm that rocked Portland Wednesday, February 22 forced many restaurants to close early, as highways and side-streets became parking lots of crashed and stalled cars. As temperatures dropped overnight, the snow stuck around, leaving packed ice on roadways — treacherous conditions for morning commuters. As a result, many Portland restaurants, food carts, cafes, and bars have decided to close for service on Thursday, February 23, with tentative plans to reopen on Friday.

However, some businesses — particularly ones with employees who walk to work — have decided to open today, despite the weather. We’ve compiled a list of snow day dining options below; keep in mind that some restaurants and cafes may decide to close early, so it’s best to check Instagram before braving the snow in pursuit of coffee. Another piece of advice: Some employees endured perilous conditions to get to work today, so tip like you’ve never tipped before. If you know of another restaurant or bar that’s open today, feel free to let us know via the tip line.
