Order a cup (or better yet, buy a bag) of coffee at newcomer Ristretto Roasters (pictured; $; 3808 N. Williams, Ste. 125; 503/288-8667), which serves organic espresso and single-origin coffees. Or dig into a sprightly salad of locally grown baby lettuce, Honeycrisp apples, and chanterelles next door at Lincoln ($$$; 3808 N. Williams, Ste. 127; 503/288-6200) ― and watch the bike commuters whiz by.
