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.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission.

1. Baon Kainan

Copy Link
4311 NE Prescott St
Portland, OR 97218

This Filipino cart opens early on Saturdays and Sundays for its inventive take on brunch, including cart-made biscuits and longganisa gravy and champorado topped with ube-dusted puffed rice. True to Pinoy breakfast form, Baon Kainan also serves its take on tosilog, salty-sweet pork belly with garlic rice and crispy fried eggs. For a beverage pairing, the seasonally appropriate hot calamansi cider 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.

2. Matta

4311 NE Prescott St Ave
Portland, OR 97218
(971) 258-2849
Visit Website

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: nước chấm-marinated pork patties, yolk-y fried egg, American cheese, and Thai chili aioli, all on a pale green pandan milk bun. If the cart is selling its “breakfast bowls” — rice topped with hash browns, nước chấm, 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.

3. Grain & Gristle

Copy Link
1473 NE Prescott St
Portland, OR 97211
(503) 288-4740
Visit Website

Another Prescott brunch spot, Grain & Gristle has been a brunch favorite for years in that neighborhood. However, the menu has recently switched up. Gone is the brunch burger, after years on the menu; instead, offerings range from white-wine-poached pear galette to raclette-stuffed naan with mushrooms and poached eggs. Brunch is available for pickup or outdoor dining from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

4. Radar Restaurant

3951 N Mississippi Ave
Portland, OR 97227
(503) 841-6948
Visit Website

Oregonians are getting vaccinated, restrictions are loosening up, and Radar is serving brunch again: Nature is healing. This Mississippi restaurant’s brunch was always a hit, and it’s back in full force, with its popular scotch eggs, smoked pork shoulder with creamy cotija grits, and smoked bluefish pate. This is the kind of place where a plate of steak and eggs comes with a bone marrow bordelaise. Brunch runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays; order it for takeout or onsite dining, with reservations.

5. Kimura Toast Bar

3808 N Williams Ave SUITE 125
Portland, OR 97227
(971) 266-8087

Every day, the team behind Kayo’s Ramen Bar makes artfully decorated toasts on a house recipe shokupan, adorned with everything from petals of sliced strawberries to classic Japanese pizza toast toppings. But it’s only on the weekends that Kimura breaks out its french toast waffles, custardy on the inside and topped with custard cream, chocolate cream, and various fruits. Kimura Toast Bar seats customers onsite, offers takeout, and is available for delivery.

6. Nacheaux

4765 NE Fremont St
Portland, OR 97213
(971) 319-1134
Visit Website

The off-the-wall brunch menu at this food-cart-turned-restaurant changes constantly, but any given visit might involve a fried chicken breakfast sandwich stacked on a jelly doughnut, or peanut butter and jelly beignets, or blue crab chilaquiles. The hypebeast quality of Anthony Brown’s cooking style is not all flash, however: The chef’s nuanced take on shrimp and grits are deeply buttery and layered with herbs like sage. Nacheaux serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., now accompanied by cocktails from the adjoining Bourbon Street bar.

7. Hey Love

920 E Burnside St
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 206-6223
Visit Website

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, birria onion soup, caramel apple waffles, and coconut-basil seed pudding with prickly pear and mango purees. Brunch is available for indoor and outdoor dining from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

8. Toki Restaurant

Copy Link
580 SW 12th Ave
Portland, OR 97205
(503) 312-3037
Visit Website

The Han Oak family’s new downtown spot, Toki, has become a must-visit spot for downtown brunch. Here, families bite into ho-dduk filled with pork belly and kimchi, sip dirty chai dalgona coffees, and fried chicken sandwiches. Peter Cho’s breakfast sandwiches come on everything bagel bao buns, and the shop’s doughnut twists come rolled in black sesame sugar or strawberry milk glaze. Brunch is available for takeout pre-order, walk-ups, onsite seating, or delivery.

9. Lazy Susan

Copy Link
7937 SE Stark St
Portland, OR 97215
(971) 420-8913
Visit Website

Lazy Susan might be the hottest brunch ticket in town, balancing Jewish deli essentials like lox and whitefish salad with oysters, hash, and house paprika sausages. Lazy Susan gets that much of brunch’s charm comes in its sides, whether that’s a house pepper bacon, a potato doughnut with a butterscotch glaze, or a lemon scone in a lavender glaze. Those who feel uncomfortable eating at a restaurant can go for a “brunch box”: Family-meal-style brunches complete with pastries like house maple bars or peanut-caramel coffee cake, as well as beef-fat-fried hash browns, sausage rolls, 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.

10. Berlu

605 SE Belmont St
Portland, OR 97214

This Vietnamese bakery from fine dining chef Vince Nguyen is the ideal spot for a pastry breakfast. Every order must include one of the springy pandan bánh bò nuong, though from there it’s hard to go wrong: pandan crepe cakes thinly layered with banana, custard tarts fragrant with coconut, and savory snacks like bánh cuốn. Walk-up orders are available Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with some pre-orders available.

11. Cafe Rowan

4437 SE Cesar Estrada Chavez Blvd
Portland, OR 97202

Visit Website

Cafe Rowan is one of those places that felt overdue for the neighborhood: A really polished brunch cafe, where locals could grab a morning coffee (Deadstock, natch), maybe a fussy avocado toast with watermelon radish and tahini, or a truly inventive breakfast sandwich — the Rowan combines bacon, eggs, and house-made blueberry jam, while the Dame pairs gochujang and Mama Lil’s pepper aioli with house sausage and manchego. If people want the full brunch experience, Cafe Rowan has that covered, too: banana french toast with coffee maple syrup, shrimp and grits with bacon shallot jam, or eggs Benedict with smoked Pacific Northwestern Steelhead. Cafe Rowan is open for onsite dining and takeout Fridays through Sundays.
