Calling it Quits as the Portland Breakfast Guy

Kind of an emotional day here at the hub of the Vast Breakfast Empire. That’s because, just this morning, on my Breakfast Bulletin newsletter, I announced my retirement as the Portland Breakfast Guy. Here is the message I sent out: Thanks for a Tasty 10-Year Run FEBRUARY 22, 2015 Way back in early 2005, I […]

New Portland Brunch: Cafe Castagna on SE Hawthorne

One of the weird things about being the Portland Breakfast Guy is that I don’t get out to eat much after noon. Even the best-known restaurants in Portland probably won’t be seeing me unless they start serving brunch. So it is that after all these years I finally made it to Castagna on SE Hawthorne Blvd. […]

InterUrban: Yet Another Fine Brunch on N Mississippi

Whenever I get into discussions about the best brunches in Portland, people will always complain about long lines, and they will almost always mention Gravy. For a lot of people, it’s an example of a good place with a terrible line. For me, it’s an example of a good place to start in North Portland. […]

Off the Waffle: Cute New SE Portland Breakfast Place

Whenever I check out a new Portland breakfast place, I try to think about the basic thing that sets it apart, the sentence or moment or scene that defines the whole place. In the case of Off the Waffle, a new place at SE 26th and Clinton, it’s actually just one word: cute. The outside […]

Portlandia’s Brunch Village Episode: Where Did They Film It?

ith Portlandia’s “Brunch Village” episode getting so much attention in town, and me being the Portland Breakfast Guy and all, I figured I’d spend some time trying to figure where they filmed it all. First, here’s a little preview of the episode: I tried to do screenshots from iTunes — hey, at least I paid for […]

Sckavone’s: The Portland Brunch Almost Nobody Knows About

ne thing about going to so many breakfasts is that after a while, I start to forget what places are like — or even forget them completely. For example, it occasionally pops into my head that I had a couple of good brunches at Sckavone’s in Southeast Portland. I sometimes remember to mention it when […]

Portland Breakfast: Jam on Hawthorne Grows Up

t’s been a while since I’ve been to Jam on Hawthorne, which over the years has grown into one of the more popular Portland breakfast places. I remembered it, from when I was researching the first edition of Breakfast in Bridgetown, as a cute little place with homemade jams and awesome lemon-ricotta pancakes. But the truth […]

A Defining Portland Brunch: The Screen Door

olks have often said that in Portland, we don’t go to church, we go to brunch. And if, indeed, the Portland brunch scene is a religious one, then the Screen Door has to be considered one of the holy of holies. This past weekend, the Breakfast Crew and I went to worship. But it started […]

Brunch at Sweedeedee: Great Food, but ….

ast weekend I had a chance to eat brunch at Sweedeedee, in North Portland. It’s an insanely cute little place, and I had heard many good things about the food. Jen Stevenson, of Under the Table with Jen, said something like “favorite place ever.” But I (in fact, we) have a serious reservation about the […]
