“Great breakfast”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We shared the chicken sausage and cheddar scrambled eggs and the crispy French toast. Both were really good. They use stumptown coffee which was also good.

“Love, love, loved Mothers!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I just adored this restaurant. It was so adorable inside, so cozy, so very much worth the 35 minute wait for breakfast.I even have to give the credit for taking my cell phone number to page me so I could stroll around the city while we waited. The menu had so many amazing sounding dishes and the waiter was just great. It was a charming restaurant and we had a cozy banquet. I can't quite remember what we ate but it was delicious. Highly recommend Mothers.

“A tasty place for breakfast”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We recently visited Portland and asked a local for a good breakfast spot. They suggested Mother's and it did not disappoint. My husband and I both had eggs, veggies and toast. We also enjoyed some awesome coffee. Only one waitress appeared to be working but she was managing just fine. The quality of the food was fresh, there were plenty of choices, and the interior of the restaurant reminded us of something a great old aunt would have. It was nice, cozy and a good find.

“Lucky find!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a great place to have breakfast. The food was enjoyable but I would not put it over the top. I however did enjoy the atmosphere and the experience. We would easily go back here and will in the future. We had a comfortable 30 min wait and seems like that must be the norm here. Really a great place!

“Elbow knocking”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Food and service is always good here...BUT..if you are a table for two..you'll be setting on a bench..literally..knocking elbows with peoples to whom you probably don't know. If that's not a prob for you..then disregard..
