Equinox Cafe is located in a nice neighborhood and has a beautiful patio for outside dining. We ordered the Equinox Bowl and Creme Brûlée French Toast for Brunch. The food is scrumptious with a creative twist, the service friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. Dining on the patio which is First Come First Serve would have been our first choice .... More

Equinox is located on a side of Mississippi which is a hot spot in Portland's dining and drinking favorites. We were referred by family to visit Equinox and decided for a late Sunday morning breakfast. A great outside seating area and indoor seating were available. We picked indoor and got seated quickly. Our server was professional, informed us about specials... More

Used a groupon to try this place out. It was a mixed bag, overall I didn't care for it but my guy liked it...whatever. Cocktails were great, mushroom wontons were tasty...And it ends there. I had the pork loin dinner but substituted the pig for chicken, was served with sauteed spinach and polenta...chicken, over cooked, beyond over cooked, spinach, undercooked,... More

Stumbled upon this place while looking for someplace to have a bite to eat, close to our vacation rental. The patio courtyard drew us in. The weather was perfect for eating outside, so we decided to try it while not knowing anything about it Other than the patio was lovely). The waitress was very nice and quick serve us, even... More

Well-prepared food including delicious mussels and a beef stew along with great beer made this a wonderful meal. There's a lot of comfort food on the menu and some good salads. Attentive service. I'll go back!

After two or three good experiences at Equinox for Sunday brunch in years past, we made reservations for 8 adults, 2 children and a toddler. We arrived at 9, and while the patio was empty except for one table, we were squeezed into a corner near a dead potted tree, and although we asked to be seated elsewhere, the request... More

My boyfriend and I were aimlessly searching for a dinner spot one Thursday evening and stumbled upon this spot. There was no line and it was very quiet. We had great cocktails, a superb dinner, and great service. We've been here twice and our meals were always fantastic. The smoked salmon spatzle and pot pie are must tries!

Equinox is a mixed bag. On the plus side the setting is attractive with a nice patio that would be charming on a warm day. The staff was lovely and accommodated our table preference and our waitress was gave us plenty of time to decide and anticipated our every need. On the minus side, we ordered red snapper and beet...

I had the Albina Scramble which had chorizo and cojita cheese among other fantastic ingredients. Since it was a scramble, the sausage was ground, but I was hoping it would be sliced. The ingredients made for a nice scramble, but I didn't taste much flavor with the chorizo. Still very good, though. The coffee was excellent. The crepes were prepared... More

We came back to Equinox tonight after not eating here for about 5 months or so. We used to be huge fans but were a little disappointed tonight. The risotto that I have gotten many times before was undercooked and extremely greasy. I tilted the plate and I estimated that there were about two tablespoons of oil that formed in... More
