“High quality bistro fare in the Pearl”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

The Daily has been a cornerstone spot in the Pearl for years. They are well known and rightly so for their Sunday brunch, which is always pleasantly crowded. In the summer, the tables on the sidewalk are available for extra seating.

They recently did some upgrades to the interior decor, tables and chairs, and it's comfortable and bright inside. They have also upgraded the menu to offer an interesting mix of seasonal fare, smaller plates, and local wines and beers. They now have a weekday happy hour until 6:00 pm that serves smaller versions of many plates. They make an excellent burger. Overall, their food is just as good as the more expensive restaurants in the neighborhood. It's a friendly reliable neighborhood place that's nice enough to bring out of town guests.

“Full of Fat”
Reviewed February 24, 2011

Today I went to the Daily Cafe with high expectations of fresh tasting sandwiches. I have a very tender tummy and thought ordering their turkey sandwich would be non-greasy and fresh, but I received my sandwich and was smothered with butter and pounded on with cheese. My tummy was weighted down ALL day. However, I did think their salads looked amazing and their chicken and vegetable soup was delicious.

“Best brunch in Portland”
Reviewed May 5, 2010

We're Sunday Brunch people and love The Daily best for their three course $13.95 brunch. Includes basket of mini pastries, options for a first course (I always get the fruit salad with yogurt) and then more choices for a creative main course. Great value and always excellent, fresh local ingredients. No reservations and very popular so recommend going after 1pm if you don't want to wait. Also fabulous for lunch and casual dinners.

“We've become "regulars"!”
Reviewed January 8, 2010

We discovered Daily Cafe several years ago, and we now treat ourselves to dinner at this delightful Pearl District spot almost every Friday night! It'is a local favorite for lunch and Sunday brunch, but we agree with a recent Willamette Week review: "Dinners deserve much greater recognition as a mid-priced neighborhood option for heartwarming comfort food." In addition to offering delicious food at a reasonable price, the service is friendly and efficient. We highly recommend Daily Cafe!

Great food, but they've got a pre-set brunch on Sunday.
