OR, Portland – The Original (a “Dinerant”)


The cheese-loaded menu at The Original may not look like a dairy-free haven, but the chef’s at this self-proclaimed “Dinerant” (diner meets more modern restaurant, we presume) are reportedly happy to fulfill dairy-free and vegan wishes (and yes, they cater to gluten-free, too). The Original staff even goes out of their way to include special dieters in their events …

  • Around the holidays they whip up decadent gourmet pies and can make it dairy-free and/or gluten-free for just a few dollars more.
  • At Thanksgiving they offer vegan stuffing and a vegetarian “bird”.
  • In summer, the pastry chef makes “Polar Squares” (inspired by Klondike Bars) in a few dairy-free and vegan varieties (made with their own coconut milk ice cream.
