We often times travel to the various 'other' breakfast places in PDX (i.e. Mothers, Gravy, Tin Shed, Red Star, etc.) but we wanted to find a descent place for a great breakfast that we could walk/bike to on a moments notice - and we found it in Café du Berry. As someone said, the interior is a bit 'tired', but this is PDX and we were looking for something PDX casual. They just finished a new outdoor patio and we sat there. We got there about 9:30 am and while there were people inside, we were the only ones at that time to select outside seating, but it filled 1/2 way in 30 minutes as others walked up.
Note that the service can be slow when a lot of people show up all of a sudden, so be prepared as this is not a Fast Food establishment. The waiter got us fresh coffee and our juice while we decided. We had previously had the various egg omelets and eggs benedict (including standard and the smoked salmon) as well as their scallop/shitake mushroom omelet. We decided splitting the French Toast (or should I say custard masquerading as toast) and a repeat of the scallop/shitake omelet. The French Toast was among the best we have ever had (texture of a well made custard, a touch of vanilla, dusted with powdered sugar, and a drizzle of maple syrup). The omelet was outstanding as the scallops were bountiful (3 for each of us) and the omelet texture just like you get in France. Will definitely repeat the same order next time it was that good. There is also the side of fresh fruit (blueberries, strawberries) and toast along with hash browns. As someone has noted, the hash browns are not worth putting on the plate, but with everything else, we did not need them anyway.
The staff kept our coffee mugs filled with fresh hot coffee and did take a bit of time to get our check (not in a hurry as we were on our local bike ride). Our favorite South Waterfront (actually in John's Landing) place for a casual and tasty weekend brunch.
