Cheap Eats 2006


Valentine's has all the trappings of a Portland coffee shop, without actually being a coffee shop; it's more like a panini boutique with great music (the restaurant does double duty as a late-night music venue). An abundance of sandwiches grace the menu, all available toasty warm with the telltale markings of a panini grill. Options range from a $4 breakfast sandwich to the $6-$7 house special, a salami-and-cheese sandwich smothered with olive tapenade�all served with your choice of crispy chips or healthy salad. Valentine's gets bonus kudos for its charming locale; it's on the cobblestoned, alley-esque Southwest Ankeny, snuggled right between 2nd and 3rd avenues. If you use your imagination, you could very well be in Florence (Italy, not Oregon). (LS)
