This is the first in an occasional series spotlighting Gathering Together Farm’s restaurant and grocery store partners.
Compote is a comfortable, family-friendly bakery and cafe in SE Portland that serves breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Sunday. Owner Shauna Lane-Block places a strong emphasis on wholesome simple meals full of locally-sourced, farm-direct produce and eggs. Everything on the menu is made from scratch, and the coffee (from PDX’s own Ristretto Roasters) is deliciously made to order.
The roasted root and kale soup (including many GTF-supplied ingredients) was a big hit.
The egg salad sandwich was spiced up with a healthy dose of GTF arugula, and it came with a side salad of mixed greens (also from GTF).
The coffee was bold and rich, perfect for warming up hands and bellies on a cold day.
Compote also bakes a wide selection of pastries in-house.
A great play area accompanies a versatile kids’ menu, and the waitstaff is especially patient, friendly, and understanding around young children.
As farmers, we truly appreciate Compote’s commitment to supporting local, organic producers, and we look forward to sending more vegetables their way in the future.
