Brown Bag Bunny Inc.

Food Carts Portland


Update: May, 2009

Location: SE 12th and Hawthorne

This charming little cart relocated from SW 9th and Alder to SE 12th and Hawthorne, but sadly closed in early 2009.

However, the equally charming owner wanted to let everyone what’s been happening in her fine cooking universe.

“Dear CBF,

I wanted to update everyone about my situation. I know I am listed in the closed cart section, and was wondering if you could post a little update for me. I obviously closed Brown Bag Bunny in March. The Hawthorne location never produced enough for me. I wish I could have stayed downtown. I am going to put the cart up for sale in the next week or so. I have found a new home baking my pies at Guapo Comics and Coffee on Foster. I will be making some of my signature salads, potato salad, almond cranberry chicken salad, and homemade pie daily. I also will be providing delivery for Guapo. Guapo is located at 6350 SE Foster. 503 772-3638. I would love it if you came by sometime and tried some of my pie, and Guapo’s delicious coffee. Thank you, for your consideration, ~Bunny.”

Good hearing from you Bunny! We’ll be sure to stop by and grab some of your wonderful treats. Keep us posted!

    I wanted to update everyone on Brown Bag Bunny Inc. I started out with a much larger and ambitious menu. What can I say, I have a passion for feeding people, and there was so much that I wanted to bring to Portland. Maybe my eyes were bigger than my stomach? We have started on our new Fall menu which is smaller, but still has lots of wonderful options. I am currently unable to do breakfast at this time, but am hoping to be able to revisit this option at a later date. We will still be featuring panini, as well as turkey chili, and a daily soup. I am experimenting with some homemade desserts. Come on by, and ask us for a sample. We are happy to let you have a taste of our many savory choices. We will be open 11 am-5 pm Monday through Saturday. I hope to see you soon, ~Bunny.

  2. Congratulations,
    Can’t wait to try it.
    Seattle misses you

  3. Here is our web site. There you can find out more about the BBB, and view our new Fall menu. I hope to see you soon. ~Bunny.

  4. Brown Bag Bunny Inc is moving to a new location. Some of you may or may not know that the lot at Alder between 9th and 10th has power problems. There are too many carts on the lot, and the parking lot has not upgraded their power supply. As a result, cooking at this location can be challenging, not to mention that when the power goes out refrigeration units do not work. I have been struggling with this problem since opening a few months ago. In order to bring you the best food that I can, I have chosen to move to a lot at 12th and Hawthorne. I hope to make this my permanent home. The new lot I am moving to has assured me that they have an adequate power supply to meet my needs. I will be at my new location as of next week. I am currently serving custom made grilled cheese, homemade soups, salads, and home made desserts. At my new location I am going to serve both lunch and dinner. You also can expect the return of my fried chicken served hot and fresh. I hope to see you soon, ~Bunny

  5. I just had the grilled cheese with spinach and mushrooms and the potato salad…it was sooooo good! I am so happy she moved to my hood…

  7. No, sorry, they moved. My database was a bit messed up and I have an update on this cart. I thought it was published but it wasn’t. My Bad. Will fix.

  8. I did close Brown Bag Bunny Inc. Business dwindled this Winter, and I just could not keep it going. I may reinvent my cart at a different location at a later date. Thank you, to all of the loyal customers that did support my vision. ~Bunny.

    Please come back Bunny! I just moved around the corner and miss your homemade soups, tiny cornbread muffins and big smile!

  10. I miss you! Please come back! I kept going to the carts and you were never there and I thought maybe I was missing you or you moved. I am so sad. I have dreams about your grilled cheeses and I’ve been steadily telling my friends. You should move to near Montgomery park near my work (24th and Vaughn would be best)! There are lots of people by foot in the area and I miss you!

  11. Hi Bunny. Guapo is a lovely store. Congratulations on your new location! Do you have an email address that you don’t mind being public? I didn’t notice one on the website link and would like to send you something.

  12. gustoeater says

    Will Guapo have those world-class mini-corn breads? Will stop by when I get a chance. best of luck to you!

  13. Hello there,

    I hope that everyone is enjoying the sunshine, ~Bunny.

  14. Big Bunny,

    Did you ever sell your cart? Also, I am interested to start my own cart and would love a chance to pick someone’s brain to see what works and what doesn’t. If I came by and picked up some of this great pie and coffee for say you and I, would you have an afternoon I could ask some probably stupid questions?

    Either way, good luck to you and your business.
