Chez Machin is a small restaurant located in the hip Hawthorne district featuring crepes and other French dishes. Though I was not accustomed to the robustness of their crepe, the filling was remarkably good. I tried the Basquaise with prosciutto along with a pear salad...More

I should've known better. In Quebec, we're quite choosy about our crepes, and so usually I avoid eating them anyplace they're bound to be inferior. But I stopped in here for brunch since it was close to where I was staying in Portland, and the...More

Tried a Groupon. Food was wonderful. Arthur, our server was excellent. Portions were good sized. The eggs Benedict is outstanding. Excellent flavor. Small intimate setting with a good sized covered patio. Good experience. Mimosa's are 4 before noon. Parking is tough off of Hawthorne.

Description
While Chez Machin's food is based on the local and rural cuisine of France, it has grown and changed with the times and culture of the Hawthorne neighborhood. Chef Seth Neeser took over the kitchen in 2008. Since that time he has continued to improve and update the menu to keep up with the times. Keeping things fresh, current, local, and delicious is on the top of our priority list.
