Okay, there's literally no denying that we humans absolutely adore food. Food is life after all. And lucky for us and modern-day civilisation we have produced and reproduced breakfast and brunch in many forms. The list of options is endless but we do love a good listicle here at Trends so we decided to do all the hard work for you guys and whittle them down to just 15 epic, unreal, amazing places in Portland. And believe us - it was a tough task as PDX is legendary for being a brekkie/brunch town... Check them out:


These guys are famous for their Sunday Brunch. Reservations are a must. $35 per person for four courses and for what you get is an absolute bargain.



The team in Sweedeedee are all about the details. The service is great, they've refillable coffee and a really healthy but delicious menu. It would be a sin to come here and not order a sweet treat at the end though... just a gentle reminder!

This Cuban institution is much loved by the peeps of PDX. The food is served in rainbow colours, which means you know you're eating the healthy food of the gods. And if you feel like a little something extra - get the banana milkshake. DO it.

Cafe Broder / Broder Nord

With two locations across the city, Broder has made quite the name for itself. This stunning Swedish restaurant chain has been going strong since 2007 and serve up tasty but clean versions of breakfast and brunch options.


Slappy Cakes

Doing things a little differently is Slappy Cakes - you get to cook your own pancakes. Most of their places do lunch and dinner now too but they'll always be known for their DIY ethos. Perfect place to bring the family at the weekend!


Screen Door

This is the ideal venue to hit up for that hearty breakfast or brunch (depending what time you get out of the scratcher). Everyone deserves some Praline Bacon Waffles. Absolutely everyone... or you can settle for some fried chicken on waffle. Drool.


Mother's Bistro & Bar

Why settle for the mediocre when you can go the full hog? Get your traditional home cooking Mom-style fix right here. They're open during the week from 7am so there's no excuse not to stop by and get all nostalgic for a while.

Even though we have an unexplained gripe over the use of the word Bijou in business we just can't fault this place. Come here if you're looking for a gourmet experience. Just LOOK at those photos....!
