The Hazel Room
Best keep your belts on Portland, because the Hazel Room is gonna charm your pants right off—you will, however, want to loosen those belts because the kitchen’s eats are gonna fill you right up. Exhibit A: the breakfast burger (two sausage patties, bacon, lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, aged white cheddar, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, a fried egg, and ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise on a brioche bun).
Oso Market + Bar
The brunch menu at Colin and Holly Howard’s restaurant and market is small but deliciously inventive, so bring friends because you’re gonna want to try it all, especially the Howard’s signature dish, their open-faced French toast sandwich, made with a thick slice of Fressen beer bread that’s lightly battered with vermouth and topped with a fried egg, honey butter, a seasonal berry syrup, and gently warmed slices of prosciutto.
Glyph Café and Arts Space
Few cafes employ a full-time chef, but Glyph does. Thats means eats like bread pudding French toast generously schmeared with crème fraiche. In fact, it might even be better served as a dessert than a breakfast entree. Lucky for you, it can be both because, if you ask, Glyph’s breakfast is served from open to close, every day, all day, seven days a week.
Hungry for French Toast? Oso Market + Bar and Glyph Cafe both maker killer versions. Want savory instead? Try The Hazel Room for a mean sausage breakfast burger.
