This is one of my favorite breakfast spots in portland, usually not too busy and open until 3 pm. They have a large list of naturally flavored vodkas to add a nice kick to your Bloody Mary, I like to mix and get two flavors...in one, like habanero cucumber. Spicy and refreshing. They have amazing biscuits and gravy but honestly you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Very good prices and always good service.More

We enjoyed our brunch there. The food was good, I got the biscuits and gravy and my friends the classic, good too but maybe a bit small. The place was a bit crowded and noisy, not unexpected on a Saturday morning, but much less than...other trendier places.More

I met a friend for breakfast at Genies based on the reviews and its overall good reputation. We both had eggs Benedict which was good, not great. The eggs were over cooked. The accompanying potatoes were very good and I liked that my tea was...brewed an in a very large cup. Very nice service. Difficult to find parking BTW.More

I went there on Easter and it was full but I was seated quickly. The staff is great and helpful. I had a hot chocolate and it was wonderful..but the eggs benedict were below par. One egg was cooked perfectly but the ham and english...muffin were hard and not tasty. I'll go back for a hamburger or something easy but not for eggs Benedict.More

My SIL is a biscuit & gravy person & he recommended his breakfast as well. The coffee was plentiful &...excellent. Very friendly staff & quick service.More

A great place for breakfast. The weekly specials are wonderful as is the regular menu. The corn beef hash is delicious and I love the bacon scramble. I come back again and again.

There are lots of breakfast places in Portland, and Genie's should definitely be on your radar screen. Menu diverse, and they offer great beverage choices! Had the chicken sausage scramble with rye bread toast, and perfectly fried potatoes! Yum, yum!! There are many choices, and...I can't wait to go back.More
