I had breakfast here twice and dinner once; that says a lot in the highly competitive food scene that has exploded in Portland, and although part of me still had a bit of fomo to not try more places, after my first breakfast at Hot...More

I like to treat myself with breakfast at Hot Suppa. They offer some interesting and delicious specials. My most recent breakfast was the benedict special -- jalapeno grits patties, bacon, poached eggs, and baby kale. It was delicious. I love that you can get grits...More

Parking is a challenge. There is no lot for the restaurant. Depending on what time I day we go for dinner, we often have found a spot out front, or may park on a side street. The restaurant is worth it, so we would even park... More

The menu at Hot Suppa is all made from scratch from quality ingredients; local goods are used whenever possible. Our renowned breakfast and lunch are served seven days a week, so you can get that corned beef hash fix whenever you’re jonesing. Dinner is available five nights a week, featuring our favorite dishes, like fried chicken & a waffle, falafel salad, and Maine oysters on the half shell. We offer a full bar service if you care to relax into the evening with a Porch Swing cocktail, or recover in the morning with a spicy Bloody Mary or cold draft beer.
