This is my favorite restaurant in Portland. Everything we've ordered there has been wonderful. We almost always get whatever the special is. It's always good, and amazing that it's vegan as well. Lots of interesting, fresh vegetables prepared in interesting ways. Very good vegan "meats" of various kinds. Entrees, salads, sandwiches, soups, etc. Large beer selection. Addictive house-made date fudge.

I have never had a bad meal at this place and I have tried so many things on the menu. I usually go in because I am craving a particular dish, but I almost always end up getting one of the specials instead because they sound even better, and are.
i like the beer selection, including draft beer.
there is also decent live music sometimes.
my only complaint is the atmosphere- it's a little drab. i am hoping they will lighten it up a bit some day. but not really a big deal considering the super food.

Pros: killer food, friendly service

Cons: kind of dark in there

We live near Proper Eats and love it. The food is not fancy (burritos and sandwiches, etc) but it's really healthy and is surprisingly delicious. I love my vegetables, but I've had my share of bland health food. This is NOT that. Everything is very flavorful. Love it.

As a non-vegan I was skeptical of trying out some vegan food, but found the food excellent. The owners are great and friendly and knowledgeable. They offer a few different micro brews as well as wines, but the food is what you should go for. Saturday nights feature an open mic night that can be a little loud depending on who is playing. There is also a small selection of groceries to choose from too. Try it out....

Proper Eats: their name is also their mission. My girlfriend and I are not vegan ourselves, but we love this vegan restaurant-grocer and we regularly take other non-vegan friends there. I remember when Proper Eats opened. My girlfriend's office was right above them and we were among their first customers. Two guys shared a dream of a business with a conscience that sold vegan foods, grains, fresh produce -- as much as possible organic and from local farmers -- and had a vegan restaurant that used nothing that was detrimental to the environment or any group of people. It would feature cool live music from local artists and would be more affordable than most similar establishments. They made it happen. The food in the early days was a little hitAndMiss, but I know better than to judge a restaurant by its early days. These days they have ironed out most of the kinks and the restaurant food is generally excellent, with my personal favorite being the super yummy peanut noodles and the many soups they serve. My girlfriend has a whole bunch of favorites (I hate mushrooms, peppers, onions and most nuts, which limits me). They have good beer, wine and quality sodas, and the vegan desserts are super yummy. Some nights, particularly in summer, they feature live music, and others they have free speech nights, showing documentaries not generally seen. The decor is minimalist, but comfortable. Proper Eats was a marvelous addition to St. Johns and remains a comfortable place to go and enjoy yummy food that's good for us. Highly recommended.

And I'm not even VEGETARIAN! This place is awesome for anyone who likes good, wholesome food (vegan or not!) I have to go here at least once a month for the wonderful soups, sandwiches and desserts! And the natural foods market in the front is just a nice bonus!
