Just up from the Oregon Zoo, Verde Cocina at Sylvan Highlands has family friendly indoor and outdoor dining areas to accommodate parties both large & small.

With ample parking and an easy exit off of Hwy 26, our Sylvan Highlands cafe is an easy stop for brunch, lunch or dinner on your way to the coast or after a morning at the Zoo or Washington Park. We also have a separate sports bar with a few monitors to watch the game. Sunday game time is on!

Our menus work for everyone: typical meat & veggie eaters, as well as those who happen to be Gluten-freePaleo or Vegan to name just a few of the lifestyles we serve. Verde Cocina at Sylvan Highlands also has an exclusive, small plate Cantina menu popular with big screen sports fans.
