Eight Three One is a restaurant that's built to "embrace the unfocused" as the chefs and owners strive to celebrate the many unique flavors the world has to offer. Their menu is as diverse as the techniques they use to create art in the kitchen. It's with this in mind that Ray and Robert invite you to have a seat at their table. Enjoy!

Open to the public for lunch, the cafe also provides OCAC's Student Meal Plan, offering healthy meals for the College's degree-seeking students. Dine inside or outside in spring and summer on the beautiful patio designed by John Storrs, OCAC's architect together with landscape architect Barbara Fealy.  

We look forward to seeing you!

Oregon College of Art and Craft (OCAC) has earned a reputation as a leading college of art and craft in the United States. Known for its exceptional faculty of artists and makers, the uniquely small, mentor-based community is comprised of approximately 180 students who pursue full-time bachelor's or master's degree programs, in addition to the 2500 students enrolled annually in youth and adult programs. At OCAC students are encouraged to work across the full range of its specialized facilities in the seven studio areas that comprise Craft at OCAC. Its hands-on, studio-based approach to learning—one in which critical thinking informs making works by hand—is enhanced by a robust, integrated liberal arts component that prepares graduates to become critical and informed makers and thinkers eager to interact with the world around them. Its over four hundred alumni, 82% of whom are employed in the arts, exemplify the vital role artists and makers play in satisfying the global demand for new ways of thinking, making and innovating. Founded in 1907, OCAC (pronounced “O-see-A-see”) is an active player in the Portland, OR ethos as the home of the small batch, hand-made, environmentally sound, and ethically entrepreneurial.
