"What if you wanted to visit Hawthorne's little brother?"

Then you would probably want to visit Belmont street from about 20th to 43rd and that's giving you a little extra room to explore, for a reason I'll explain in a moment. From 39th, Belmont is only about six blocks north of Hawthorne and is a similar neighborhood filled with fun bars, good restaurants and neat people. I recommend, if walking from Hawthorne to Belmont, or vice versa, to walk up or down 33rd, it's a quiet residential street with lots of charm.

Where points of interest and shopping are concerned I like Zupan's market, just to browse, it's ridiculously expensive, Movie Madness (which is way down on 43rd, hence it's inclusion), the Avalon theatre, and Za Zen Boutique.

The bars and food on Belmont that I dig are the Aalto Lounge, Hoda Middle-Eastern Cuisine, and the Paradox Cafe. There are some others I'm forgetting, but like Hawthorne, most places you go will be pretty good.

I recommend visiting Belmont if you're going to visit Hawthorne, but I don't know if I would say its worthy of it's own special trip.

"Great scene for the Indie kids"

The majority of Belmont St. is residential, but there is a neighborhood (the kind typical of SE Portland) that goes from about SE 25th-SE 39th. It's a lot like it's neighbor Hawthorne, offering a number of really fun bars including: the Side Street, Belmont Inn, Aalto Lounge, and many more. If you are down with the tattooed and the eternally hip, this is the place to be. There are also a number of coffee shops and a great, if not super expensive, grocery store called Zupans. Biking is big in SE Portland and Belmont St. has entire sections of street parking dedicated to bicycles. It's an awesome neighborhood to check out and one of the most desirable places to live in SE.
