I had another enjoyable meal at Broder when I was in PDX a few weeks ago. I was alone, so I sat at the counter (no wait--yay!) and chatted with the chef. Making æbleskiver is a skill--and he produces 100s of them in any given week. I had Pytt i Panna (Swedish hash) and it was tasty and the eggs... More

We went here for a late brunch on a weekend, so it was a bit of a wait to get in to the restaurant, about 10 minutes. Our server was super friendly and informative regarding their akvavit selection (a Scandinavian liquer) and was kind enough to get us a mini flight so we could taste them all. The potato pancakes...

A girls weekend in Portland, looking for somewhere new (to us anyway) for a Sunday morning breakfast. We had Broder recommended to us. We arrived at about 9:45 in the morning to a completely packed restaurant. We signed in immediately and settled in for a wait. The restaurant is very small, but it was a nice, summer morning so they... More

Having read how popular this cafe is (and it was Sunday) we went at 0815 (breakfast is served 0800-1500). There were already 5 people there and by the time we left there was only one empty table. We had a wonderful Scandinavia breakfast ... Pytt i Panna a kind of hash with baked eggs with pickled beetroot and walnut bread... More

This is a place to try new things (unless you are Danish). My wife and I had never had any of the breakfast items before, but the wonderful aromas tempted us into trying the PYTT I PANNA (SWEDISH HASH) and the FÖRLORADE ÄGG (LOST EGGS). Farm-fresh ingredients, expertly prepared and presented -- we both remarked that the seasoning and flavors... More

We were surprised at the line on a Monday morning, but the wait (~40 minutes) was worth it. If you want to enjoy coffee outside while you wait it'll run you $3 and it's pretty generic, not on par with the rest of the menu. We stuck to breakfast food even though the wait took us closer to lunch. I... More

This place is also called Cafe Broder. It's a small place with seating outside. Be prepared to sign in for a table. Today we waited about 15 minutes, but 45 minutes is not unusual. But it is worth it. I had baked eggs that were flavorful and silky. I also ate the porridge that was filling and wonderful. Another person... More

We went here for brunch and it did not disappoint on several levels. 1. The atmosphere was a cool small cafe with a couple tables outside, but the windows at the front opened to let fresh air in. 2. There is a such a nice range of dishes on the menu from savory to sweet, from somewhat familiar to items... More

Our Danish guest was impressed with the smørrebrød and the rest of us (3 adults and one child) were more than pleased with our dishes. The dining room was warm. Like most other Portland venues, the cafe does not have air conditioning. The dining area was noisy and conversation was a bit difficult. One of our guests is already planning... More

I wasnt sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised when the Salmon Cakes I ordered were the best I have ever tasted! My four friends were just as impressed with their food-their meatballs were delicious! The portion sizes did not look very big but don't be fooled-it is more than enough to fill you up! The only thing... More
