You wouldn’t know it looking at the gorgeously preserved vaulted ceilings of Portland’s oldest restaurant, but Huber’s has been through a lot since opening in 1879. Best known for its traditional turkey dinners and tableside Spanish coffee shows, the place survived Prohibition and Portland’s seedy days as a hub of human trafficking on the shoreline. It even made it through a gigantic flood, and stayed open the whole time, serving hungry and stranded workers who rowed up to its windows via boat. To this day, the turkey is the best in the city, though you’d be forgiven for getting a steak to go with that flaming coffee. No boat required.
