All I can really say is that I'm sooo embarrassed for you Sarah.
Ray's type of place
And yet The Golden Touch (on Barbur) gets nary a mention...
"I'm thinkin' about th' Touuuch..."
great breakfast info in these articles. My 2 cents. I loved the Q & A with Paul Gerald about "line" alternatives. Must add-if you don't want to wait at the Screen Door, walk one block south to what USED to be Il Piatto-same owners, completely remodeled inside and in the menu. Wow, I think I may have had my MOST favorite breakfast ever there today: Chocolate Cinnamon French Toast. Oh My Gosh!! super nice server, and excellent coffee. I'm anxious to try their new dinner menu (and secret, don't know how long it will last, but at the moment when you eat brunch there (weekends only) they give you a 15% off coupon to try their new dinner menu!) Highly recommend.
It is a mystery to me why East Burn's brunch is mostly empty. Bottomless mimosas and some very respectable menu items.
Most of the real Portlanders I know don't ever talk about how eating from a dumpster somehow makes you "more Portland".
They're becoming a parody of a parody.
"Caligula would have brunched." Really reaching, isn't it. Yeah, Smiths, we get it.
RT: You're a parody of a parody.
Gee, wonder if the person who wrote this lives in NE pdx? lol
Miss Delta kicked ass when Jimmy was the chef.
Flavour Spot on Lombard can have a line. Sometimes a 20-minute wait for a waffle on the weekend, so going early is your best bet.
^ I'm so sick of people talking about people talking about Portland. They're becoming a parody of a parody. And yes, I kind of hate myself for talking about the people who are talking about the people talking about Portland.
City-State, Pambiche, and Miss Delta are all kickass spots, Microfoam. Can't speak for the other ones, though. Sounds like you've already done you're homework, so I'm not sure what you're bitching about.
This is probably a good time to bring up the eating breakfast -- for dinner! Because that shit aint right!
I'm so sick of our city's self-referential obsession. "This is SO Portland!" "In Portland, we do ---". "Our city is all about..."
Especially when it's stuff that happens in almost every city. You know what's NOT "Portland?" Constantly talking about yourself in a self-congratulatory just-moved-here way.
Did the writers actually eat at any of these places? They don't have lines because their food is considerably less good than other brunch spots. What about Irving Street Kitchen, Otto, or Skin & Bones? You are supposed to be doing our homework for us...
Where is the cookbook Onstad? Why have you stolen peoples money? Stolen it and pretended like nothing happened? Beware this man, a known thief.
Have to chime in on what the first comment-er said about Tin Shed and Radio Room. Radio Room is better. I'm not one to disparage any restaurant for the heck of it, but Tin Shed, relative to all the other options in the area (Radio Room, Cup and Saucer, Helser's) just doesn't even compare. Radio Room has great breakfast food, a killer bloody, and good espresso and coffee.
Extra points for the photo, which is entirely out of context but great nonetheless. I personally am a mere peon who cannot really afford any of these places but it is handy information for the more well heeled I encounter.
