Breakfast & Brunch

An Area Specialty At Any Hour

Visitors who skip the first meal of the day miss out on a favorite local pleasure. The importance of breakfast and brunch for Portland establishments cannot be overstated – restaurants and diners take the task seriously. Whether they are serving early-risers or those easing into things, restaurants take breakfast and brunch to its limits, adding their own chef-inspired or internationally-inspired touches, or taking on the classics without restraint.

For some, diners are preferred spot for hearty breakfasts served morning, day, or night. Visitors will find booths, tables, and stools at the bar – sitting among locals beginning their day can provide a taste of the city. Eye-popping portions and special takes on favorite items are the norm, as are wild blueberry pancakes, eggs made to order, huevos rancheros, fried chicken and waffles, corned beef hash, and plenty of stick-to-your-ribs specials.

A preference for elegance first thing in the morning is also an option. Local restaurants, busy with late-night patrons just hours before, are prepared to provide morning guests with sophisticated takes on classic Mexican egg dishes, refined twists on steak and eggs, omelets featuring lobster, crab, or local goat cheese, and even smoked salmon croque monsieur. Find homemade buns or chic French toast dishes for Sunday brunch, and menu items from whimsical to hearty, often served with attention to fresh local ingredients, plenty of flair, and a glass of bubbly!
