Cute restaurant with lots of cute shops nearby. We ordered the mushroom hash and were advised to go with a half order for one person. We didn't see this option on the menu. Their ham is fantastic

Helser's is my favorite Portland restaurant for breakfast and it's perfect every time. I always exclaim, "Oh my gosh" after my first bite. As if I'm surprised again! The home baked biscuits, whipped butter and fresh made fruit preserves are a delightful starter with coffee....More

small, cozy restaurant with delicious, innovative breakfast items. can be crowded, and it's hard to have a private conversation sometimes, but the food makes up for it. I have to take at least half of my meal home because there is too much to eat...More

I live in NW Portland, so this is not a local spot, but still one of my favorites. I've had the eggs benedict and the Huevos Rancheros (a special that's not always on the menu, but when it is ORDER it!....It's amazing). The eggs benedict...More
