This cozy, down home place has an extensive breakfast menus. Wonderful breakfasts! I had the best oatmeal I have ever had: piping hot oatmeal filling a large soup bowl, with bananas and raisins, and covered with a brown sugar topping which was caramelized to a crisp sugar crust. The pancakes were giant. Huge portions, reasonable prices. We went there three... More

Wonderful place to grab breakfast/lunch! Their portions are huge!! I absolutely loved their biscuits and gravy. It was soooooooo delicious, I must have it again! Be forewarned, the line to get into this place is a bit long, so either go early or not on the weekend. Definitely worth the wait though!

Whenever I travel to the Pacific northwest I make it a point to go to Gra y. There is always a way to restaurant is crowded and noisy but I've always found the service to be good and the food was wonderful. My Bacato scramble (bacon, tomato, cream cheese) was wonderful! The portions are large, and I have a large... More

We had one of the best brunches on Sunday of Father's day. Biscuits and gravy were awesome. I had a breakfast sandwich that was amazing to accompany my Bloody Mary. Everyone was loving their food and the service was fantastic. Great spot in one of Portland's great neighborhoods.

Despite a wait of 15 minutes or so, our family thoroughly enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Gravy. Don't let the wait time cause you to miss out! The menu included a wide array of choices for our healthy eaters... and for those who were not so inclined. :) Yum. YUM. Seriously. Great service, too!

Loved my vegetarian biscuits and gravy! Also had a bite of the french toast, which was terrific! This place was super busy on a Saturday morning. We got there 20 minutes before the restaurant opened and there was already a line. Great service; happy people working there. I can't wait to go back and try something else! Great job, Gravy!

We had just finished coming from hiking the Oneonta Gorge. My friends asked us to meet them for breakfast and window shopping. I love walking around Portland and looking at their artsy shops but I was Hangry Hungry=Angry. I said, "We need to find a place to eat like NOW." Right in front of us was Gravy. My friend quickly...

First on my list was Gravy. Got there early about 7:30 in the morning we were one of the first to arrive and... More

When you feel like a hearty and delicious breakfast head out to Gravy. The biscuits and gravy are very good, one is plenty to share with your dining mate. If you are a fan of corned beef hash give theirs a try - large bits of corned beef. Pancakes and omelets are also good. It's situated along a great street... More
