When first built in 1931, the Nite Hawk provided a unique service to Portlanders. You could bring in your Model "A" for an oil and lube. Then enjoy a hearty meal or a cup of coffee with homemade apple pie as you waited for your car to be serviced. But times change and so did the Nite Hawk over the next five decades as it turned into a bottle bar, then a rib joint and then a dance hall. In 1980, today's current owners, Bill and Elaine Mildenberger decided to put the focus back on just serving good quality fare. That is, after they spent countless hours of labor in remodeling and renovating the popular Portland café and lounge.
