    The breakfast board was unreal. As was the French toast. These owners have tapped into a mystical dimension of culinary divinity.

    Come between 2 and 2:30 for quick service and do not leave without trying the chocolate potato donut and bacon wrapped dates. Burmese pork stew and chicken hash are stellar too.

    Worth the hour wait. Patatas bravas were awesome. And the breakfast board was a sight for sore (hungry) eyes. And the French toast...speechless it melted so gracefully in my mouth.

    The second in a trio of Chef John Gorham restaurants. The food manages to feel both fun and yet carefully crafted, with a wide range of global influences from Korea to the U.K.

    Flawless menu. We went family style with the breakfast board, spinach and sunny-side up, French toast, vegetable frittata +5 more dishes. 2hr waits not uncommon, but worth it.

    Order the breakfast board, a great sampling of small bites. Today's board: pickled beets, chicken liver mousse, hard boiled egg, mini bacon strips, Greek yogurt, mini toasts, and strawberries.

    This place I've read is popular with their brunch menu but I almost died & went to heaven with the goodness of their Pork Adobo which is sooo tender! I'm Filipino btw 😋😎

    WILLIAMS AVE: Ridiculously popular brunch hotspot, with lots of glowing press. Dinner and happy hour are great too if you want to avoid the zoo (or go and be part of it!). Love their breakfast board.

    The barbeque chicken here is fantastic. Get that and a couple of biscuits and you'll leave completely satisfied. I also really like the house-made chips and French onion dip, and the Toro red ale.

    Really unique dishes. Try the raddichio salad, the Burmese red pork stew, the polenta and sausage ragu, or John's Breakfast. One of the best burgers in town too. (definitely easier during the week)

    Great "tapas" style of dining..try the toast, the French toast, the bravas, egg and cheddar biscuit, glazed yam with cumin-maple...super yummy!!

    We have been here 3 times. Have tried "Chocolate Potato Doughnut", "Griddled Bacon Wrapped Date ", "Steak n Eggs", "Red Pork Stew", "Pork Cutlets", "Potatoes Bravas". Loved them all....Worth the wait.

    Exceptional service at the first come seating area at the bar. The biscuit egg sandwich with sausage was perfectly cooked (egg was just runny enough). Highly recommended for a filling breakfast bite.

    If you're visiting Portland, consider extending your trip a few weeks to allow yourself time to work through every item on the menu. Alternatively, the Polenta & Sausage Ragu, and the Potatoes Bravas.

    Go with a bunch of yer awesome friends before a Cross Crusade Race and order a bunch of plates to share! Biscuits + Gravy, Chocolate Potato Donuts to start. Don't miss the Roasted Apple + Glazed Yams!

    Sweet biscuits with blueberry compote were awesome. Potatoes bravas were maybe the best potatoes we've ever had. Still dreaming about them days later.

    Bring friends and order a variety of dishes—they brought our brunch whenever a plate was ready, so a constant stream of warm, delicious food we could all share and enjoy!

    The breakfast biscuit is delicious with a flaky large biscuit. Chocolate potato doughnut is worth trying. Morocco chicken hash is a small sized plate that's a bit skimpy on actual chicken.

    There is usually a line, we waited about an hour to be seated. However, the service was great and the food was worth the wait. Get a Bloody Mary with jerky while you wait!

    Start with maple bacon wrapped date, then the tasty African sausage. Coax your partner to order the Burmese pork stew and dig into that too. Everything is delicious!

    The best new brunch spot in Portland also has a lot of its regular menu items on Happy Hour for a fraction of the price from 2:30-5pm. Go early, there’s only a single communal table for seating. Read more

    This is one of those "can't go wrong" restaurants, but whatever you do, order a bacon wrapped date ($2). Also, sit at the kitchen bar and be mesmerized by the chefs.

    I thought the Dinner Protection Act of '34 banned brunches from being this delicious, but I guess Mr. Tasty and his Sons pulled some strings.

    The reason it's an hour 1/2 wait to get in is because once seated and your order is taken, meals come out separately! First person was done before 2nd one was served! 3 of us and same thing happened.
