Favorite Portland Breakfast Spot

Broder (either location) has some pretty interesting stuff. I agree with ybnormal; Tasty N Sons has some unusual, delicious breakfast eats.

BLUE PLATE - Why is there not more conversation about this utterly magnificent lunch counter?

One of my great frustrations with working in the suburbs is I can't get to downtown to visit Blueplate. I miss those sliders so much. And their reuben burger. And the meatloaf sandwich. Sigh.

Sodas are really good, too. Oh, and the egg cream.

You're right, the owner (Jeff?) really cares. And the young ladies who used to work there were really friendly without being fake or overbearing. Hope they're still around.

I'll have to take a day off and get down there.

Mr Taster's first report as a Portland resident! Boxer Ramen? Oy.

Mmm, those tots.

Hope you enjoy our fair city.

Awesome Breakfast?

Yeah, I was there recently on a Sunday, right at opening, and there wasn't even a wait by the time we left.

So good.

Portland restaurant recommendations

You should try Subway. They serve lunch and dinner. You can even get breakfast there.

Though you may want to check the boards for other recommendations.

Anniversary Weekend in Portland

Consider Tasty n Alder for brunch. Or Toro Bravo for dinner (though they don't take reservations, so there's a long wait unless you get there before opening). Really great food in an unpretentious atmosphere. Small plates so you can try lots of fun stuff.

Congrats on the anniversary—my wife and I hit 10 years on the 29th.

Andina vs. Imperial by Paley

Have breakfast/brunch at Imperial. It's good. And then you'll still get to try Andina.

5 Donut shops better than Voodoo

I'd add Delicious Donuts and the new Pip's Original.
