The owners of the restaurant called "Jam" reopened the Cricket Cafe and I must say it was a very wise investment. I have eaten at the Cricket Cafe three times in the last two weeks and it has been excellent all 3 times. The food...More

Good choices for breakfast; solid menu but service deplorably slow. Took almost 90 minutes for our order to come. Food lovely but really not worth such a lengthy wait

Crispy hash browns, how many times all over the west coast I have asked for them only to be disappointed. Not so this time. Perfect crispness with an egg and toast. Simple but satisfying. Great staff, thank you.

This is a hidden gem. Small neighborhood cafe. The breakfasts are very generous in size at a great price. They also have great "to go" breakfast sandwich deals. This makes me want to go have breakfast there right now!

One of the best breakfast spots in Portland, not to be missed. Kinda tough rating your local café so highly - don't want the secret to get out and find it swamped any more than it already is!
