Welcome to The Country Cat
Dinner House & Bar

We serve up a made-from-scratch, farm-to-table dining experience that embodies American craft cooking. Adam and Jackie Sappington, the husband-and-wife chef owners of The Country Cat, have created a menu that reflects the ever-changing culinary landscape of American heritage cuisine, featuring classic dishes from Adam’s Midwest country upbringing recreated with Northwest style and ingredients. Their dedication to seasonality means a majority of their produce is hand-picked from the local farmer’s market. Adam, a James Beard Award semi-finalist the past three years, is arguably Portland’s top chef/butcher composing a variety of rotating dishes to highlight every part of the animals he breaks down weekly in his back kitchen. Jackie is a talented pastry chef creating nostalgic delights filled with sophisticated flavors made from the Northwest’s seasonal bounty. The cozy and soulful restaurant is nestled in Southeast Portland’s Montavilla neighborhood, reminiscent of Adam’s hometown in Missouri, allowing the duo to foster a dining environment that serves the community first.

Adam and Jackie Sappington of The Country Cat Dinner House and Bar know all about needing an apron that will stand up to their cooking adventures. Adam is a decorated butcher who cooks with seasonal, locally grown produce that may come in to the restaurant with the dirt and roots included. Jackie is one of the city's most talented pastry chefs and needs an apron that will stand between her and clouds of flour while still being comfortable enough to allow her to create her delicate desserts.
