Portland has no shortage of weekend brunch spots, even during the lingering days of a brutal pandemic. But those are for slow, leisurely times, whereas breakfast is often quicker and more casual. Luckily, the city also has a plethora of dining options for the less buzzy and Instagrammed morning meals.
