best breakfasts in portlandWe are nearing the end of food week on Pipeline. Tomorrow, tens of thousands of Porltanders will wake up and wonder where to go to breakfast. The NYTimes, in their continued love of our city, recently wrote about how many fantastic restaurants we have here with serious morning meals. But who needs some Manhattanite when you have the Pipeline?

We have you covered with 50+ REAL Portlanders‘ opinions on the subject. We even have local actress & video Astrologist Shannon Day‘s opinion. TAKE THAT “Paper of Record”. From this list of suggestions of our Portland Twitter & Facebook friends, you’ll be able to experience different top breakfasts around the PDX for the next 40 weeks.

I just ask one thing: Take me with you (paying would be nice too :) )

    I am with luther, Pine State is excellent, so is Tin Shed and Beesaws (both are busy though) and the Screen Door as well (really freakin busy). You and the food thing Julian, you’re killing my diet:)

    I haven’t been in years but Marco’s in Multnomah Village was the best!

    If you live in Kenton or North Portland, I’d suggest John Street Cafe. We’ve been going there for at least 10 years now. Great omelettes and hash, and they make a great pancake as well. The backyard dining is quite peaceful.

    I got into this late, buuuuuut…

    I absolutely LOVE Zell’s over on SE Morrison (1300 SE Morrison St to be exact). A friend took me there a while back and I really got into the place and that’s difficult since I’m really not a breakfast person.

    That said, Zell’s is known for their German pancakes and they are absolutely outstanding. The last couple times I’ve gone, I’ve had the french toast (SO delicious) and a chalkboard special, the chilequiles (which I think I’m not typing correctly). The chiles dish (bacon, tortilla chips, scrambled eggs, and black beans) was incredible and rather filling.

    The wait staff is always personable and the services never wanes at all. Busy or slow, it’s always a great experience. Plus you get free scones, how can you beat that?

    Raven & Rose downtown in the old Historical Ladd Carriage Building does a killer brunch on Saturdays and Sunday!! Usually there isn’t even a wait, which can be very hard to find in Portland. Plus their breakfast cocktails are awesome!
