Best Portland Breakfast Restaurants

Best Portland Breakfast Restaurants Guide - Listed below are the best Portland Breakfast restaurants located throughout our Portland neighborhoods.  Portland has no shortage of great restaurants, and finding the best Breakfast in Portland should be easier with this list. 

You won't find any corporate chain restaurants here, there are plenty of those in town, but we are focusing on the independent local Portland breakfast restaurants.  We hope our insider's guide to Portland Breakfast restaurants will help you select the best place to eat the next time you are in the mood for breakfast or brunch in Portland.

If you live in SE Portland, consider yourself fortunate. Southeast Portland seems to be a hotbed of good breakfast places in Portland.  Arguably, a few of the very best breakfast places in Portland are there:  Jam on Hawthorne, Sanborn's, the Waffle Window, Simpatica Dining Hall, Broder's and Pine State Biscuits are all in SE Portland.   On any given weekend, you'll find people lined up outside these establishments, sipping coffee and chatting with their neighbors as they wait for a table to open up.  Not be be outdone, NE Portland breakfast restaurants are equally as popular and offer some of the best breakfast in Portland (or best Portland brunch).  Try Gravy, Tin Shed, and Milo's, just to name a few.  M-m-m!

The secret to not having to wait is to get there bright and early, but it can be hard going out into a cold wet winter Portland morning at 8am...still with some of the best breakfast in Portland waiting, it's almost always worth it!
