Brunch at Yalla.
| Austin Phelps

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 sling pancakes and hashes on the weekends, as well as inventive brunch dishes like elote frittatas and fava green omelets.

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.

Bad Habit Room

Copy Link

On nice days, sun floods the saloon-vibed Bad Habit Room on North Michigan, where a handful of neighborhood locals enjoy quiet brunches of croque madame or eggs blackstone, a variation of eggs Benedict with bacon and tomato-truffle jam. Start with a gargantuan mimosa, bubbling with cava, followed by a platter of super buttery biscuits and a rich pork belly gravy abundant with sage. Brunch runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Baon Kainan

Copy Link

This Alberta Filipino cart serves its inventive take on brunch each Sunday, including crispy lumpia 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. However, it’s all about the specials at Baon Kainan — past options have included a play on loco moco, citrusy arroz caldo with plump shrimp, and Filipino spaghetti. For a beverage pairing, the calamansi soda or cider, depending on the season, should do the trick. Baon Kainan is open for brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Tartuca

This intimate Mississippi Italian restaurant began serving brunch in November, following up orders of poached chilled shrimp with focaccia French toast, salami hash, and Abenaki corn Dutch babies. The braised chicken leg with polenta gets its pop of salt from castelvetrano olives, balanced by cherry peppers; if it’s on the menu, it’s worth an order. Brunch runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Cafe Olli

Copy Link

This light-toned, window-lined Northeast Portland cafe serves bowls of cracked farro porridge, ricotta toast, and frittata breakfast sandwiches on any given morning, but on Saturdays and Sundays, the culinary team gets into broader brunch territory. Meals should start with a pastry from the case, followed by smoked brisket-accompanied eggs and French toast sticky with spiced Crimson Crisp apple sauce. And to drink, visitors choose from a long list of espresso and tea drinks, as well as wine, beer, and cocktails.

Navarre

Copy Link

This Northeast 28th European restaurant’s weekend brunch has been a staple in Portland for years, and it is just as good as ever. Sure, visits may involve standards like Benedicts and omelets — however, the Benedicts will come with things like cod cakes or collard rabe, and the omelets will arrive filled with seasonal vegetables like fava greens. Dishes rotate frequently; seafood here is often a treat, be it mussels and clams steamed in saffron-scented white wine or a simple cut of fresh halibut with aioli. Seating is available in the intimate, bustling dining room or on the patio. Brunch runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

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, tater tots smothered in mushroom gravy, and sweet chile shrimp and grits. Brunch is available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Queen Mama's Kitchen

This downtown Saudi Arabian restaurant, with its brass and cerulean touches, is a luxurious spot for a weekend brunch. Start with a cup of green-hued, super lightly roasted Arabian coffee, served with dates or baklava; from there, it’s best to opt for one of the flaky breakfast pastries or ful, a pot of gently spiced fava beans. Save room for a slice of cheesecake for dessert. Brunch runs from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

The Sunday brunches at this cool hideaway of a Foster-Powell restaurant involve roe-topped omelets, seafood towers, and elote frittatas, served alongside espresso martinis and Orange Julius homages. If available, nab an order of crispy-crusted bacon, egg, and cheese croquettes, well balanced by the custard-soaked shokupan French toast. Brunch runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, with reservations available.

This Multnomah Village restaurant recently started serving brunch, and the menu includes a number of dishes that are hard to find around Portland these days, like chocolatey babka and egg-topped khachapuri. Both are must-orders on the brunch menu, as well as the huckleberry caramel Dutch baby, the jammy shakshuka, and the schmaltz cornbread sweetened with a judicious dose of bourbon glaze. Pair the meal with a pistachio gin fizz or the Daily Dose, a Wilderton mocktail with sage, grapefruit, and rose. Brunch runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
