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, Blackheart — 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: The points on this map guide are not ranked; rather, they're organized geographically.

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.

Portland, OR 97210

Locally acclaimed for its wood-fired grilled chicken, Mama Bird’s weekend brunch is still sort of under the radar — but not for long. The restaurant’s sweet brunch offerings venture outside the world of chicken, offering crepes filled with seasonal fruit, Belgian waffles with house-cultured butter, and crème brulée French toast, as well as more savory fare like buttermilk biscuits and gravy or house-smoked salmon with fried capers and a potato pancake. Those who cannot fathom a visit to Mama Bird without poultry are not left in the lurch, however: the menu includes grilled chicken and waffles with Calabrian chili honey and grilled lemon. Brunch at Mama Bird is on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

2. Brix Tavern

1338 NW Hoyt St
Portland, OR 97209
(503) 943-5995
Visit Website

Brix Tavern is known for its expansive menu, a fun place to grab a meal, drink, or catch a basketball game on one of its many large screens. On weekends, Brix hosts an under-the-radar brunch, served in view of early NFL or Timbers games. The stellar shrimp and grits evoke flavors of an eggs Benedict, topped with poached eggs and hollandaise, but those looking for the real deal can choose from Benedicts topped with chipotle hollandaise, applewood smoked salmon, and heirloom tomatoes — all served on corn cakes instead of the typical English muffin. Chicken and waffles, omelets, biscuits and gravy, and protein-focused skillets round out the brunch menu, as well as a wide assortment of mimosas and marys. Brunch runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2:45 pm. Saturdays and Sundays.

3. Toki Restaurant

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

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 3:30pm. Here, 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, onsite seating, or delivery.

4. Everybody Eats PDX

138 NW 10th Ave

(503) 318-1619
Visit Website

Soul food restaurant Everybody Eats is known for its massive dinner portions of comforting classics, especially ones involving seafood: fried catfish, crab-stuffed salmon, and seafood mac and cheese. On weekends, however, the Pearl District spot also offers its sought-after brunch menu, with things like peach cobbler chicken and waffles, banana pudding French toast, shrimp and grits, and crab omelets. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 pm., with onsite dining, takeout, and delivery.

5. Bullard Tavern

813 SW Alder St
Portland, OR 97205
(503) 222-1670
Visit Website

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 sweet potatoes, 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.

6. Baon Kainan

Copy Link
807 NE Couch St
Portland, OR 97232

This Filipino cart opens early on Sundays for its inventive take on brunch, including cart-made biscuits with tocino gravy 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 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.

7. Matta

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.

8. Hey Love

920 E Burnside St
Portland, OR 97214

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 for indoor and outdoor dining from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

9. Grain & Gristle

Visit Website

As pretty much anyone could tell from the name, the French-inflected Petit Provence Boulangerie & Patisserie is a must-try restaurant for anyone who loves their brunches complete with a pile of pastries. Boasting a bevy of French fair and baked goods, the spot’s breakfast options include plates like risotto cakes and eggs, La Provence Benedict on a toasted croissant, strawberry cheesecake pancakes, and the “Ultimate Polenta and Eggs,” as well as a vegan chorizo and tofu scramble. Brunch is served here on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

11. 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 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 a beef fat hash brown. 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 peanut-caramel coffee cake, 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.

12. Phuket Cafe

The latest restaurant from Portland’s own Akkapong Earl Ninsom, Phuket Cafe just began serving 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 would steak and eggs come with cassia leaf red curry sauce? 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.

13. The Egg Carton

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.
