Jake's Restaurant in downtown Portland was named after Jake Freiman, a deeply beloved waiter who worked here during the early years of the 20th century. The place has a fascinating collection of memorabilia from its past, dating back to 1892. The kitchen specializes in dishes prepared from the local products of the Northwest. When it comes to desserts, their principal attraction is their Three Berry Cobbler.


  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Prepared pie dough to yield one 9-inch pie crust
  • Garnishes:
  • Whipped cream, ice cream, or low-fat frozen yogurt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the berries and the sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes or until juices are released.

Add the cornstarch mixture and blend. Stir in the lemon juice.

Ladle into 4 individual custard cups or one 9-inch pie pan or casserole. Cut out pie dough disks, or one large disk, to fit over the berry mixture. Place the disk of pie dough on top of the berry mixture and put the dish on a baking sheet to catch any spills. Bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden. Before serving, top with any of the garnishes.
