Eclectic people watching. Wonderful breakfasts (try one of their scrambles) and the best orange juice (freshly squeezed). A very popular place, lines outside at popular times but line moves fast and coffee while you wait.

Waiting an hour for a table of three on a Sunday was all worth the wait! Coffee is supplied outside. Bathrooms are easily accessible. Bathrooms are very clean! We were happy to wait for our table inside where it was warmer than outside. The staff is extremely nice! The bar is first come first serve seating. While waiting for a... More

Omg I would eat here every day of calories were no object. The wait is long but it's worth it. Food comes out pretty fast even though it's a really busy place. Service is friendly and the food is amazing.

Found this place on trip advisor. This is an amazing place. The food is outstanding and the service is even better. You can tell they are well trained and naturally friendly. Wonderful place and highly recommended.

All around fantastic meal. Went for breakfast with my vegan daughter and very not vegan husband. Had the best meal of our trip all fresh local ingredients,and great service. The blueberry chi pancakes were awesome. Servings size was abundant. Will definitely return.

My husband and I came here on a Sunday morning for brunch and had a great time. There is typically a line to get in but since we were the only group of 2 waiting we were seated in just a couple minutes. The atmosphere inside is very much like an artsy coffee house - there is a lot of... More

Expect to wait (sign in and wait to be called) as this place is very popular. Really good breakfast menu and drinks (mimosas are good). Service can be a little slow when full but definitely a place to try. On-street parking can be tiresome (we lucked into a place right outside the front door).

This was two blocks from where we were staying at an AirBNB, so it was a no-brainer the first morning. Great coffee, and that helped wash down the HUGE oatmeal chai blueberry pancakes - we split two big ones. You can put butter, jam (on the table) or syrup - all great. This will stay with you all morning!

This is a very cool place, very artfully decorated, the art is for sale, & the food was great. I had eggs benedict, my daughter had a pesto, tomato an egg wrap, my husband had a corned beef hash with scrambled eggs and my grandson who is dairy free had vegan blueberry pancakes with bacon. It is a must stop... More

We had the fortune of staying within 4 blocks of this breakfast gem. I started off my meal with fabulous Portland made coffee that the offer while you are waiting (there is an inevitable wait for a table). For the second act, I indulged in a delicious mango mimosa in a very large glass :). The three of us had... More
