Cultured Caveman: The West Coast's First 100% Paleo Friendly Food Cart

Portland's first paleo-friendly food cart. Now 3 food carts and a restaurant!

We have a restaurant open 7 days per week:

8233 N Denver Ave
Portland, OR 97217
Open 11a-10p

We have THREE food cart locations open every day in PDX:

4031 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214

1477 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211

SW Stark between SW 2nd & SW 3rd Ave
Portland, OR 97214
Open 11a-4p

We serve: grass-fed beef, local chicken, seasonal salads. Food for the caveman in all of us.

Our little food cart started as a kickstarter project. With plenty of hard work and help from our friends, we opened just 2 months later! We're part of the Alberta15 food cart co-op pod, located at 1477 NE Alberta St. We've since expanded to 4 total locations in Portland including a casual counter service restaurant up in the Kenton neighborhood!!!

Best of Portland Readers' Poll 2017

Yayay! We've been nominated in the Best Paleo Options category for the Willamette Week's Best of Portland poll!

It takes like 2 seconds to send a vote our way!

Thanks in advance Cavepeeps!

-H Are you the best in PDX?

I love this sage soup advice by Holly! It's barely spring and I'm still going hard on the soups. Obviously, I'm definitely a big big fan of batch cooking and freezing in pint sized mason jars!

Pro tip: only use wide mouth pints!!!!

[04/07/17]   Edit: power back! Open at 4:30!

Quick PSA! The restaurant's power is down! We're on a bit of a holding pattern until it's back up and we'll be opening as soon as it's safe to do so! I'll comment on this post when we're open!

Did you guys see Epic Bar's new flavor?! What do you think? Should we start carrying it in the restaurant?!
