Huge portions!

We each had biscuits and gravy. The sausage for the gravy is made in-house. It tasted like Italian sausage which made the gravy a little sweet for my taste. The biscuits were very good. Portland is a food lover's paradise so I think this place will fit in nicely!

Delicious Mississippi District local restaurant that serves brunch until 3 p.m. Large portions for less money. Breakfast meal has a large variety of delicious choices along with an al a carte menu. Recommend going during the week to avoid the crowds and the long waits on weekends.

I had fried eggs which were perfect, awesome breakfast potatoes & outstandingly memorable French Toast. Server was ok, but the atmosphere just felt very dull and mundane. Not the feeling I expected after the great things I had heard about this establishment. I felt that our server had bigger fish to fry and that he was uninterested and did not... More

Not everyday, but now and then, nothing satisfies like a nearly over-the-top breakfast. Gravy is where you want to go on those days. Yes, portions are, uh, generous. And like the name suggests there is gravy (if you like) available for everything. But unlike many "big breakfast" places Gravy keeps things light and flavorful. Ginormous omelettes and scrambles arrive without... More

I know it sounds crazy but best omelette!!!!!! You can customize your own, I had tomatoes, cheddar, jalapeno and bacon. They do not skimp, all items were fresh and superior quality. Cute place, bit of a wait but it was a beautiful day out. When in Portland and you want eggs...GO HERE!!!!!

Wow - the choices were unbelievable and the omelets were two meals worth. Exceptional service but expect to wait 30-45 minutes to be seated as it is

First of all, be prepared to wait . We came on a Sunday morning for breakfast. We arrived at 8:45 and waited until 9:40. There were almost more people waiting outside than were eating inside...Take note... They will not seat you until your whole party is there... Hence our wait of 15 extra minutes. You sign yourself in on the... More

I know what you are thinking. So what! But how many places have you been to where they notice your cream is low and bring you more without you having to ask. Oh, and the hash browns were extra crispy. Wonderful, I usually avoid hash browns because they are often soggy and undercooked. Not here. You can get fruit instead... More

Had the one biscuit and house made gravy. Awesome. Very casual and usually packed at the regular breakfast times but worth the wait. Been here a couple times and only had the above but is't sooo good I haven't had anything else.
