    I took the recommendation for Salmon Hash and it did not disappoint! Combine with the French press coffee and you're set. If you come alone or group of two sit at the bar. First come first served.

    Jason is an amazing server. Very passionate about his job, especially since he's been working here for over 12 years! Definitely get the salmon hash and the frittatas! Oh, and the Bloody Marie's...

    It's all about the love! Get cozy under a chandelier and try the biscuit breakfast, super crunchy French toast, and drink a Bloody Mary. The Salmon Hash is quite popular too!

    Get a large French press carafe of coffee and a large Belgium waffle topped with blackberries and whipped cream. Sadly, you do have to pay for the pure maple syrup on the side.

    Wild salmon hash is delicious. Also it's large enough that you can have it for brunch and be satisfied the whole afternoon. Two-person coffee press is a great deal for $8 (32 oz of gourmet coffee).

    Their menu is an updated take on classic home cooking like chicken and dumplings, meatloaf, and a daily rendition of mac and cheese that has been known to inspire squeals of glee at my table. Read more

    Prosciutto and Swiss cheese omelette was incredibly good. The red roasted potatoes were perfectly cooked and you can't go wrong with unlimited coffee. If you're in Portland, it's a must go.

    Ordering coffee is a delicate and thorough interview process. Mother is theatrical and delicious, and our waiter Jason should replace Fred Armisen on Portlandia.

    Crunchy French toast wasn't quite as amazing as all the hype, but the scramble and coffee were top notch. Worth the hour wait - put your name on the list, and take a walk.

    It is a cozy, warm atmosphere, elegant, yet also homey. The service is quite good, with friendly hostesses, and servers who were all helpful, accommodating, and a pleasure to talk to.

    Put your name on the list then get coffee at Stumptown while you wait. Our server was great and food portions are generous! My asparagus frittata was awesome but red potatoes were dry and tough.

    Comfort music for comfort food. Most of staff are pretty attentive with things such as refilling your coffee without even you asking. Recommending the sausage platter, it's the best!
