The Bijou Cafe has been a favorite breakfast place in Portland for decades and for good reason. If breakfast is the most important meal of the day then this is the type place that has helped make it so. The menu is varied enough to appeal to a wide variety of tastes including vegetarian, seafood and meat options. Sausage and ham from Olympia Provisions are featured in several dishes and well worth considering.
We chose roast beef hash with eggs and biscuit with gravy and eggs. The roast beef came in large chunks with equally large chunks of potatoes and sweet caramelized onions. The eggs on top were perfectly cooked to order. Mother would have approved. The biscuit was huge, fluffy and rather than a milk gravy, featured meat based gravy that included slices of link sausage. Thin slices of ham adorned the biscuit and added sweetness. Again, the eggs were perfectly cooked to order.
Our table service was outstanding and the coffee cup was kept constantly filled. There is ample reason that the Bijou Cafe has endured.
