Like most of Portland’s great food finds, you have to work all the angles to get a Bernstein’s Bagel. First off, the mostly take-out St. Johns shop (opened in 2017) has limited daily hours, which fold at 1:30 p.m. If you want ’em hot (and, of course, you do), arrive at 7:30 a.m. weekdays or 8:30 a.m. on weekends. Even so: expect to wait in line. A funky, gravel-floored back “patio” (think: DIY foodie pig pen) sports limited tables, but be warned: heat lamps are not in the cards here. In fact, the heating system is basically the kitchen oven and steam from a boiling kettle.
