My niece was not enthusiastic about "gravy" for breakfast... UNTIL it was brought to the table. The biscuit without the gravy is mouthwatering, add the gravy and well, beyond yum! If you're not a biscuit and gravy fan (yet), then their french toast was a fabulous option. There may be a line when you go, but I promise it'll be... More

A must place to go in a great neighborhood, for an incredible breakfast. Huge portions, more than enough to just get one main dish and a side to accommodate 2 people. Yes the lines and or wait can be a bit long, but the friendly service, delicious food and overall wonderful atmosphere make it worthwhile. Prices are also a good... More

Gravy is a great spot for a huge breakfast. The service was friendly and accommodating, the food was delicious, and the portions were humongous! There was a short wait on the Wednesday morning we were there, and a good sized line when we left around 11:00. I will be back!

Sometimes it is the place you stumble across that just.......blows your mind (or mine at least). Friends and we were all walking up Mississippi Ave perusing the shops and wondering who's stomach was the hungriest. My wife threw down the gauntlet and decide some food needed to be located STAT as she was starting to feel ill. We looked at... More

When you're in the US you have to behave like the Americans. So we tried a typical American breakfast. We had scrambled eggs with toasted English muffins and hash browns. And an omelette with roasted potatoes. All delicious and we'll done. Fast and nice waitress. Cozy place. Beware of the size of dishes...they are huge!!!

We had breakfast at Gravy on the advice of our airbnb hosts, who live in the neighborhood. Food is good and portions are huge; one portion and a side will easily satisfy even a big appetite.

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!

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.

Thank jimply
