Portland’s Best Brunch Spots That You Can’t Miss
Are you visiting Portland for the first time and hoping to try a taste of our penchant for brunch cuisine? Or perhaps simply looking to venture outside of your usual neighborhood to try something new? Either way, you can’t go wrong with any of the options on our list of the top 4 brunch spots that any Portlander (or temporary Portlander!) must visit.
1. Fried Egg I’m In Love
This SE Hawthorne cart is known for serving up next-level breakfast sandwiches, the perfect way to start your day after an spending a little too much time at one of Portland’s many craft breweries the night before. Their house special is the Yolko Ono, a mid-morning masterpiece that includes a fried egg, homemade pesto, parmesan, and a hand-pressed house sausage patty.
2. Tov Coffee
Some might argue that coffee shops can’t qualify for a “brunch” category, but after you visit this Egyptian coffee bus (yes, bus!) conveniently located just steps from Fried Egg I’m in Love, you’ll see why we’ve made the exception. The drinks at Tov Coffee are thick, sweet, and unforgettable, a small meal in and of themselves. However, if you’re looking for something extra, you’ll also find a selection of fresh Turkish and Egyptian pastries that are sure to satisfy.
3. Miss Delta
This under the radar North Mississippi Street gem offers true Southern comfort with a Portland twist. Our tip? Try the southern stack, a buttermilk biscuit with fried chicken, cheddar cheese, bacon, sausage gravy, and a fried egg. A perfect storm of brunch deliciousness.
4. Stepping Stone Cafe
Home of the plate-sized “mancakes”, this Alphabet District local favorite is quite possibly the best diner in Portland. They tend to get busy on weekends, so try a weekday for the best chances at scoring a seat. Bonus: they’re open until 3 AM on Friday and Saturday nights.
