Nice Surprise

Found ourselves on east side of Portland mid day and decided to stop by the Cadillac cafe for lunch. This had been on my wife's list to try, but I had no idea. Mid week lunch expected wait, but none. We were welcomed to our table almost immediately. Friendly staff and great service. They... read more

We were told by several people in we know in Portland that this is their favorite place for breakfast. We can see why. We were there for breakfast and weren't disappointed. The people who had the eggs with their French Toast were raving about how good it was. The waiter we had was very good and attentive. This is one... More

Cadillac Cafe is a local favorite, but today was a disappointment. The service was so slow. The food came quickly, but the original drink order took 15 minutes after we were seated. Waiter seemed off or overworked.

I went to Cadillac Cafe on a Saturday for lunch and it was very busy (as it should be). Service was very good and I got my food promptly. I ordered the very berry french toast which is their custard filled french toast with strawberries and blueberries on top. Absolutely delicious. The location of the restaurant is easy to get...

Hubby and I can say we've never had a bad meal here..this is our 'go-to' spot whenever we're on the east side of town. We've brought several friends and relatives here over the years and they absolutely love the food and atmosphere. Staff is great and service is timely. You won't regret stopping here!

This was my first visit to the Cadillac Cafe. I was surprised by the number of great choices on their lunch and breakfast menus. They are only open to 2-3pm each day so the lunch and breakfast menus carry through the open times. There were so many good choices that I had trouble deciding what to choose. I decided on... More

Hazelnut Custard French toast. Just order it and be wowed off your seat. Server with choice of egg or meat. I had the best thick sliced bacon ever served at a restaurant. The French toast was big, thick and "custardy", just like the title says. It was topped with a generous amount of chopped hazelnuts. The service was top notch!... More

Always good food. Huge seating area, so you don't wait too long when it's busy. Good wait staff. We've been pleased with our breakfasts here.

The portions are enormous but perhaps that is America. It has a nice atmosphere. If you are into sweet breakfasts, this is the place. The coffee could have been stronger, but the people were nice and lots of real local color.
