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. And, unlike the eggs Benedict and pancake towers that define brunch, breakfast travels better with items like breakfast burritos, bagel sandwiches, jianbing, doughnuts, and savory pastries.

Some places are even offering indoor dining, though it’s up to individuals to decide their level of comfort with that. For more weekend brunch options, this map may help.
