“Great food and good service”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

I read multiple reviews not knowing what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised, since it seems like there have been many bad experiences. I ordered the French toast and it was custardy, and melted in your mouth. The hashbrowns accompanying the meal, was made with real potatoes and was more mushy vs. crisp. The fruit consisted of a half banana and a few grapes and a slice of apple. Not gourmet but not horrible.

My guest had the eggs Benedict with dun genesis crab and finished everything. It was above par.

Pros: good food, reasonable prices for the area, (a surprise if you googled them, all items start around $10), good service, I was greeted immediately when I entered the restaurant. They checked in in me several times, and seemed genuinely happy to see me.

Cons: because of the size, the stairs to the upstairs was narrow, and the restaurant was very warm and humid. You also have to rely on street parking that is limited to an hour, an issue if you are there on a busy day. You can tell this building and facility was older, and could probably use so,e renovating.

I was pleased with my experience and would recommend this place and visit again. I prefer to visit and spend my dollars at local restaurants for breakfast than chains.

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

This is best food in Portland. Don't let appearance fool you. The Salmon was the best I have ever tasted. This restaurant is the equal of French restaurants in France. Treat yourself.

“Get the French toast ala cart.”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

The Best French toast ever!!! The only reason I come here! Get ala cart vs full plate to save your $3 and skip the flavorless hash browns. Very good Orange juice too.

“The Best French Toast”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

After arriving at PDX in the early morning from Tokyo this is always the first place we stop. It is not the cleanliest place and I doubt they have ever remodeled the restaurant since they opened it ages ago, but it doesn't matter. They have THE BEST french toast anywhere, hands down. It's like a combination of a custard and a bread pudding with a lemon syrup and powdered sugar on top that gets caramelized. If there are two of you, order the french toast and salmon benedict and share. Their coffee is good and rich too.

“There's only one way to best enjoy breakfast here!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

The french toast is a delight (like a custard) and is always consistently fantastic. But alas, the scallop and shitake mushroom omelette is heaven on earth, too. Only one way to solve this conflict. I go with people who love these dishes as much as I do (I'm up to seven now), and we order both dishes and split them! Your taste buds will thank you for the creamy savory mushroomy scallops and the custardy sweet-but-not-too-sweet french toast all in one meal! The staff is happy to accommodate and friendly as can be. And in summer weather, the little patio out front is precious. But in winter, eat upstairs in the toasty warm second story! A true favorite!
