Great brunch place. Love the food here. such an awesome place to go to eat comfort food. Also, the interior is really quirky old fashion but very nice and comfy.

Have been to Mother's several times over the last few years when I visit Portland. Just went twice this month while there for a conference and it is as wonderful as ever. They graciously accommodated a group of 23 people for an early dinner, and the server (Matt) was funny, efficient and patient in dealing wit such a big group. I had a salmon pate` appetizer and crab cakes for my dinner to "save myself" for their special dessert that week: dark chocolate bread pudding! All were amazing, but I am a little angry that I submitted to peer pressured and SHARED a chunk of my bread pudding with colleagues. Big mistake. That dessert was amazing. Also had brunch at Mothers, and it was very good, tough there was not quite as much salmon in the salmon hash as I'd remembered. But that seems the way of tings everywhere these days. Anyway, a great place with great food and a wonderful atmosphere. I'll be back!

We had lunch here twice-- that good! Everything is fresh and delicious and the service was friendly and prompt. The grilled chicken sandwich was done to perfection and layered with lettuce, avocado and tomato. The baked potato soup was the best I'd ever had. I even tried the chopped liver, a Mother's specialty, and loved it. If you go, even if you're too stuffed to have dessert, there will be a surprise with your check.

Very impressed with the food; excellent preparation. Certainly on the "comfort" food side. Excellent service and atmosphere.

Not only are the menu options comfort food-based...the home-like seating arrangements will make you feel like you are in your mom's kitchen eating your favorite foods!!! Since there are some many dishes to choose from, Mother's offers small plates of entrees so you can totally indulge in tasting a variety of dishes!!! Don't miss the complementary cookies that come at the end of the meal!!!!
