Companion Breakfast Program
8:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.
The day will start with breakfast at The Cadillac Café , which has been an innovative institution for Breakfast and Lunch on Portland's NE Broadway dining scene for over twenty years. Owner's Rod Brackenbury and Terry Hughes fulfilled a dream of theirs by starting The Cadillac Café in 1989. In 2002, Brackenbury and Hughes relocated their dining hotspot into a new building just nine blocks to the east of their original location. The muted pink walls of the new space give the diner an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Taking design cues from the Art Deco period, the dining room is divided into small intimate spaces and includes the display of a drivable 1961 pink Cadillac convertible and a glass walled Garden Room Dining area with a towering deco themed fireplace.
 
After breakfast, the group will head to Lan Su Chinese Garden. It is one of Portland’s greatest treasures—a powerfully inspiring experience that takes you through time, offering a window into Chinese culture, history and way of thinking. Ever changing, Lan Su always has something new to offer - by the minute, by the hour, and with the seasons.
