This place is fine. There is nothing wrong with it. Food is decent, staff is ok, cocktails are fun. But it's not worth the wait.

A great little, local restaurant. Have been here several times and absolutely enjoyed it each time. Usually go for breakfast, but have also gone for lunch. The food is delicious, the servings are ample. There is street parking, but it could be difficult during peak eating times. There can also be a long wait at peak times as there is not a lot of seating available. People

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.
