My two brothers and I were visiting Portland this year on our annual road trip. We were having dinner our first night and our waitfolk recommended this place for breakfast. It was a great referral. I had the Kickass Waffle. This was honestly one of...More

Ok not much too look at. It's in a funky neighborhood, but you're there for the breakfast. It's good! Flavorful food and plenty of it, good prices, great service. What else do you want? Don't think about it, just go in.

Breakfast for 3 on a Sunday morning. We arrived just-in-time, no wait for a table. Small, fun place with delicious food and excellent service at a good price. Highly recommend them and will gladly go again.

This is a great breakfast joint for a large plate of potatoes. Waffle is great and is one of my wife's favorite dishes. Their toast is the best in Portland. Great coffee. Love this place. Small and intimate. A fantastic breakfast joint!

Visited here with family and had read some previous trip advisor posts and was a little nervous but found the staff to be friendly and the food was delicious. I would recommend this place.

My daughter, niece, and I visited this great cafe on a Sunday morning in July. We witnessed the "altercation" described below. Yes, the place was really busy, and we had been waiting for about 30 minutes outside on the sidewalk. We did see the waitress...More

I have never left a review but please do not go to this restaurant. The owner is completely nuts. She verbally and physically assaulted me while our family was waiting for a table. My family was in town for a wedding mid-July and we had...More
