Mapquest does not give what we consider the most reliable directions. It's determined to send everybody up I-5 even though that isn't always the best way to get here! Please consider the following routes--they're the ones we use! Parking is on-street. Times are not strictly enforced, but places are, so please do observe no-parking signs!
From Downtown, Southeast, and Westside: Take 405-North to Highway 30/St. Helens Road. Follow this about 5.5 miles to the St. Johns Bridge ramp (on the left, has a left-turn lane and signal). Take the beautiful St. Johns Bridge east across the river. Once across, you will be offered a choice of 3 lanes. Take the middle one straight through the first traffic light. Turn left at the second light on N. Lombard St. You will see us on your left, catty-corner from Starbucks.
From Northeast: Take NE Martin Luther King to Rosa Parks Boulevard (old Portland Blvd.). Go west (toward the river) on Rosa Parks and drive about 5 miles to where Rosa Parks becomes N. Willamette Boulevard. Enjoy one of the prettiest drives in Portland! Stay with Willamette--the road will turn at the University of Portland, but keep with it. Travel about 3 miles past U of P until you pass under the St. Johns Bridge. Go 2 blocks to N. Baltimore St. and turn right. Drive 3 blocks, passing through the light at N. Ivanhoe, to N. Lombard St. Turn right. Go 2 blocks and you'll see us on your right.
