Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

Portland, Maine Travel Guide

Monday, April 3, 2017

We loved Portland so so so much! It's one of the few places we would fly back to the Northeast for. We did a quick weekend trip so we didn't have time for everything, but what we did do was amazing!

Where to eat:

  • Duckfat - Get the truffle fries! Also J was obsessed with their paninis. 
  • Bomb Diggity Bakery and Cafe - SO CUTE AND SO GOOD! I loved the Whoopie cookie, cinnamon roll, hot chocolate, and egg sandwich. J got a breakfast burrito that he loved, too.
  • Tandem Coffee Roasters - Cutest little stop for breakfast and the best cheddar jalepeno scone.
  • B. Good - Ok so after our trip I realized this isn't specific to Maine, but it's still so good! They have the Maine Root sodas that are SO GOOD and everything is really fresh and healthy. 
Places that were on our list but we didn't have time for:
  • The Honey Paw
  • Coffee Me Up
  • Portland Pottery Cafe
  • Urban Sugar Food Truck
  • Sister's Gourmet Deli
  • Ohno Cafe
  • Bard Coffee
  • LB Kitchen
  • East Ender
  • Palace Diner
  • Aurora Provisions
  • Dutch's
  • Bird Dog Roadhouse
  • Food Fork Lab
  • Back Bay Grill
  • Otto
  • Bayside American Cafe
  • Portland Lobster Company
  • The Holy Donut

Where to stay:

  • We stayed at Microtel because it was cheap and fit our college budget. I was actually really impressed with it and would stay again. 
Other hotels that are on my list:

What to do: 

  • A lighthouse tour! There are supposedly 6 lighthouses in Portland, but we could only find these four: Portland Breakwater Light, Spring Point Ledge Light, Portland Head Light, and Two Lights State Park.
Let me know if I missed anything! Or if you agree that these places are amazing/delicious! I'm really hoping we can make it back up before we move back to the west. It was truly everything I wanted it to be and will forever remind me of Stephen King.
