Portlanders — with their regularly celebrated love of coffee, booze, and eggs — are constantly in search of a morning meeting ground, which makes brunch an essential part of the city’s culture. Normally, brunch’s stratospheric popularity has resulted in hour-plus waits for bacon and Benedicts; however, the current state of affairs has dramatically changed the brunch landscape: Several restaurants known for their brunches — Beast, Trinket — have closed, while others have simply discontinued their weekend brunch service. Still, there are a handful of restaurants continuing to serve pancakes and hashes outside on the weekends, while others are offering takeout scrambles and grits.
This map is dedicated to restaurants with weekend-specific brunch menus, only served from Friday through Sunday; for serious breakfast and brunch offerings mid-week, Eater Portland’s breakfast map might be a better guide. Note: The points on this map guide are not ranked; rather, they're organized geographically.
