Breakfast in portland seems to be an institution. The number of places that are packed to overspilling on a weekend between ten and two is amazing. From neighbourhood diners to classy pearl district bistro's all your breakfast needs are taken care of. My local is Sanborns an excellent place that only does breakfast and lunch, serves great Mimosa's and an eclectic selection of breakfast plates. Super friendly staff and good coffee certainly help erode the hangover on a beautiful summer morning. Other great Portland breakfast places include Mothers, Bertie Loo's and Genie's. All this talk of breakfast is making me hungry, so its time to eat.
