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, Radar — 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 many others are offering dine-in. For those uncomfortable dining out post-mask mandate, there’s always the option of 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:

Note: Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.

Phuket Cafe

Copy Link

The latest restaurant from Portland’s own Akkapong Earl Ninsom, Phuket Cafe serves weekend brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays — and there’s no brunch in town like it. Where else could you eat granola alongside black cod curry? Here, French toast gets a dose of Thai tea syrup, eggs come with pork belly and sticky rice as opposed to bacon and toast, and toddies come with fernet cream. Plus, any meal can start with fried-shallot-topped oysters. It’s open for dine-in.

Toki Restaurant

Copy Link

The Han Oak family’s downtown restaurant, Toki, has become a must-visit spot for downtown brunch, available Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Within the stylish-but-casual dining room, families devour ho-dduk filled with pork belly and kimchi and bibimbap topped with steak and eggs. Peter Cho’s breakfast sandwiches come on everything bagel bao buns, and the shop’s doughnut twists come rolled in golden milk and toasted coconut, milk tea sugar, dulcey glaze and corn flakes. Brunch is available for takeout pre-order, walk-ups, and onsite seating.

Bullard Tavern

Copy Link

During Bullard Tavern’s weekend brunch, servers deliver platters of oysters on the half-shell and apple cake doughnuts to tables throughout the Woodlark hotel restaurant. However, it’s the restaurant’s entrees that really shine: shrimp and grits with smoky garlic and braised greens, breakfast tacos filled with fried chicken or cauliflower al pastor, loaded hash browns smothered in beefy Texas red and pickled jalapeños, and true classics like buttermilk pancakes and steak and eggs. Bullard’s brunch runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m every Saturday and Sunday.

Cafe Olli

Copy Link

Weekend mornings at this sunny Northeast Portland cafe involve house-cured bacon, fruit-covered Dutch babies, and platters of smoked salmon with house-baked bread. The menu here changes often, but hopefully the restaurant’s raviolo al uovo — an egg-filled dome of pasta with ricotta and sungold tomatoes — sticks around a little longer. The beverage menu includes espresso drinks, sparkling matcha limeade, and a cool wine list.

Baon Kainan

Copy Link

This Filipino cart serves its inventive take on brunch each Sunday, including arroz caldo with shrimp and ube bibingka (flavored rice cake) topped with coconut crumble. True to Pinoy breakfast form, Baon Kainan also serves its take on tosilog, salty-sweet pork belly with garlic rice and crispy fried eggs sunny-side up. For a beverage pairing, the calamansi soda should do the trick. Baon Kainan is open for brunch takeout from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a few onsite tables at the pod.

Richard and Sophia Lé at the Northeast Portland food cart, Matta, switch up their menus day to day, but usually on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the two churn out a viet kiều take on brunch: we’re talking pandan doughnuts, ca phe, and an absolute beast of a breakfast sandwich: smashed pork patties, curry-spiced hash browns, American cheese, and dac biet sauce, all on a pale green pandan milk bun. If the cart is selling its “breakfast bowls” — rice topped with hash browns, fish sauce gravy, and a good-old fried egg — it’d be a crime to leave without one. Check the food cart’s Instagram for brunch menu details.

Hey Love

This tropical, lush bar within the Jupiter Next hotel is likely the spot for a boozy brunch: Bartenders spike coffee with Cinnamon Toast Crunch rum, pour vegan bloody marys with mushroom bullion, and combine passionfruit and grapefruit juice with gin, pear brandy, and bubbles for a take on a mimosa. The food is far from an afterthought, however, with pork-verde-topped chilaquiles, vegan ceviche, s’mores waffles, and coconut-basil seed pudding parfait with prickly pear and mango purees. Brunch is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Grain & Gristle

Copy Link

Prescott brunch spot Grain & Gristle has been a brunch favorite for years in that neighborhood. Offerings change often, ranging from blitzes with whipped cheesecake filling and berries to a bay shrimp and rockfish ceviche with crumpets and a soft-boiled egg. While entrees change with time, the one constant over the years remains on the side menu: salt roasted potatoes. Brunch is available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays; indoor dining is available with proof of vaccination.

Mirisata

Copy Link

This vegan Sri Lankan restaurant trades in its kottu and curries for tropical fruit salads and Just Egg scrambles on Sunday mornings, with a brunch service that runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Brunch here is distinct from many others in town, with roti stuffed with scrambled vegan eggs, a sticky coconut milk rice dish known as kiribath, and the highlight of the menu, rolled pani pol pancakes filled with sweet grated coconut and cardamom. When it comes to beverages, visitors can choose from passionfruit mimosas (or sodas), Equal Exchange coffee, or Ceylon tea.

The Egg Carton

Copy Link

This Foster-Powell brunch cart stacks Benedicts with tangy hollandaise, slathers French toast with maple-bacon syrup, and stuffs breakfast sandwiches with cart-made sausages or jams. On Saturdays and Sundays, however, the move is to opt for the biscuits and gravy, a colossal serving of house-made buttermilk biscuits in the cart’s “hot momma” gravy, dotted with hunks of sausage. It’s open with onsite seating available at the pod.

Lazy Susan

Copy Link

Lazy Susan balances Jewish deli essentials like a salmon lox plate and smoked whitefish salad, with oysters, hash, and house paprika sausages. Lazy Susan’s brunch charm comes in its sides, whether that’s a thick-cut house pepper bacon, a potato doughnut with a butterscotch glaze, or an everything bialy with dill cream cheese. Don’t want to eat at the restaurant? Go for a “brunch box”: Family-meal-style brunch complete with pastries like house maple bars or cinnamon morning buns, as well as hash browns, house cured salmon board with bialys, and add-ons like take-home cocktails. Brunch runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays for onsite dining (yes, the restaurant offers reservations), or customers can order a brunch box in advance via Tock for weekend pick-up.
