Great food is always on the menu at Helser's. Yesterday I had the corned beef hash special with two poached eggs for lunch. It was great. It was a large portion and I ate every bit of it too. Their breakfast menu is an all day thing, so the other special was blueberry pancakes. I normally meet a Portland friend for lunch on Alberta Street and we have picked Helser's as our meeting place because of the friendly staff (at least most of the time) and good food. It's popular so we might have to wait for a table, but it is worth it.

We have only been during breakfast. The breakfast meals are amazing with waffles, thick bacon, and such. You may run into lines, especially on the weekends.

One of our favorite breakfast places. We do love the Scotch eggs, but we also
like the assorted hashes and scrambles. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the servings are generous.

My only (small) quibble is the large open room can get quite noisy when the restaurant is full. Other than that, it's a great place.

First visit - heard good things about this place but received extremely slow service and poorly prepared/presented food. Folks were nice enough, but our party of 3 walked away feeling shortchanged (70 dollar check).

My impression was that everyone on that particular shift was having a rough day, short handed, or something.

Great bacon, eggs and the potatoes and toast were so good! One of those old fashioned breakfast in a cool place and area.
