The intriguing name might prod you to have a look at the restaurant, but once inside, the aroma of freshly prepared food takes over, and has such a hold that you'll find it difficult to leave without eating. Old Wives' Tales has been a Portland fixture for more than three decades now, and delights with a menu of honest and hearty house-made food. The menu follows no specific cooking styles and is a blend of influences from Europe, Asia, America and pretty much every region that's known for it's food. Start off your meal with one of the fresh salads or soups from the soup bar. The entree selection is diverse and offers such delights as the East Indian Burrito and Teriyaki Salmon. Apart from this, there's a huge choice in freshly prepared sandwiches with a variety of meats. The children's menu is high on health and has very little greasy stuff; a delight for mothers. Dietary deficiencies are exceptionally well-catered to with most of the menu suitable for a gluten-free palate. Apart from this, there's lots of vegan and vegetarian choices. The atmosphere inside is cozy and well-suited to individual diners and families alike. Children get their own playroom so parents can eat in peace. One of the best family restaurants in the city.
