When it opens, Fox Loves Taco will offer breakfast tacos all day and coffee from Portland roaster Coava Coffee. Details on the menu are sparse, but they’ll make flour and corn tortillas in house and you can expect plenty of Little Red Fox hot sauce to be on hand to spice things up.

Fox Loves Taco will be located at  716 Monroe St. NE. We will let you know when we have additional details like an opening date.

The local chain has signed on to Monroe Street Market, according to a broker for the space.

BGR will open in 1,476-square-foot space on the ground floor of the Portland Flats apartment building on Michigan Avenue NE.

Portland Flats is the triangular shaped building with the Starbucks, so it looks like BGR will be taking the spot that was once occupied by Hälsa. We will let you when we hear anything new.
