Chose this place as our first breakfast in Portland. The food was nice, we shared a large breakfast. But the coffee was so bad that I have to give this place a thumbs down. Seating was a challenge, get there early if you visit on a weekend. Cool 50's kind of diner. Nice servers.

We happened upon this 50's style cafeteria one night on the way back to our hotel and we knew instantly we had to try the fare. Old fashioned signs outlining the Fuller's favourites including corned-beef hash, pigs in blankets, homemade oatmeal and all the other breakfast fixings. Loved the atmosphere with great service and darn good cooked meals. Made a... More

I stumbled across this when I was looking for a breakfast place that was open very early. This is your good old 40's/50's neighborhood diner with basic, honest food. The atmosphere is great and staff really friendly. But don't expect delicious food. My bacon was burnt, the toast soggy, the coffee thin. Still worth a visit.

A pretty standard diner, but higher quality food. They have homemade bread and corned beef (for hash). Pancakes are VERY good and large.

Located this coffee shop on the Internet. One of the few ones open at 6am. I love coffee shops where the locals endorse their neighborhood hot spots. All the regulars know one another. Just like a big family. This is what we lack in other big cities. Everyone should experience stepping back into the 1950's A time when everything was... More

If you want to experience an old fashioned diner breakfast, hit up Fuller's. Service is friendly, food is good, and they make their own hash browns. Go see for yourself!

Good, cheap and fast food. Can get quite crowded - especially around lunch. Be prepared for a short wait. A Portland staple - worth checking out if you are looking for a quick cheap meal. Coffee is pedestrian. Stop up at Stumptown Roasters for the real deal. Kid friendly - they will love this place. Check out the old restored... More

We went here and had omlets and pancakes. The omlets were ok. The pancakes were not good. They were thick and lacked flavor. With all this said this place is really cheap .

If you're looking for a little nostalgia with your breakfast, you should try this place. They serve really good traditional breakfast, and the service was great, too. Not a very big place, so get there early!
