For some, it’s pancakes or waffles. Others, the omelet or breakfast sandwich. But for many, it’s the breakfast burrito that is the ultimate way to start the day — eggs, potatoes, cheese, and sometimes meat like sausage or chorizo, all wrapped up in a tortilla for one convenient package. It’s a choice hit for hangovers, weekend brunches, or meals on the go, and Portland has more than a few options.

From veggie-friendly burritos to meat filled monstrosities, and from quick counter stops to chic cafes, these are ten can’t-miss breakfast burritos to get in Portland. Did we miss your favorite? Sound off in the comments. And as always, this map is organized geographically, not by ranking.

King Burrito Mexican Food

Copy Link

A longstanding counter-service restaurant, King Burrito serves burritos, tacos, and other Mexican and Mexican-American staples. Open early until late every day of the week, the super casual restaurant serves a selection of breakfast burritos, including chorizo, chorizo with potatoes, and the classic machaca breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, refried beans, tomatoes, cheese, and shredded beef. The burritos at King Burrito are, appropriately, very big.

Los Gorditos

With a number of locations across town, Los Gorditos is well loved for its quick and friendly counter service, affordable prices, and wide range of options that includes a full vegetarian and vegan menu. This extends to the breakfast burrito menu, at least for vegetarians, with a massive burrito stuffed with scrambled eggs, beans, cheese, potato, rice, sour cream, and a choice of meat or meat-substitute, including bacon, chorizo, soyrizo, and soy curls.

La Bonita | Food for the People

Copy Link

Unmistakable with its colorful mural exterior, the family-owned La Bonita has been serving Mexican food to the Alberta crowd for twenty years now. The breakfast burritos here are fairly gargantuan and require two hands, stuffed with beans, cheese, egg, and hash browns. There’s also an option to add bacon or chorizo for some extra salty richness. La Bonita also has a location at North Killingsworth, and will soon have one on SE Division.

La Luna Cafe

Copy Link

A cute little cafe housed in a window-lined basement and filled with hanging plants and peacock-blue paint, La Luna is busy most days of the week, and especially on weekends. The single option for breakfast burritos here is packed with fluffy eggs, crispy potatoes, cheese, and avocado. La Luna is a nice option for those who love breakfast burritos but want to skip the meat, as the burrito comes with the option of cauliflower “chorizo.” Still, those who opt for the bacon will be pleased with the thick, crispy pieces.

The Daily Feast

A chic little cafe rocking retro diner vibes with its turquoise seating and island counter, the Daily Feast serves a large selection of brunch staples, including a pretty hefty breakfast burrito. There are a few selections, but for those looking for something especially meat-filled, there’s the three meat burrito, with bacon, sausage, and ham, along with black beans, fluffy hash browns, poblano peppers, cheese, and, of course, scrambled eggs. Those who prefer their breakfast meat-free can find a similar burrito, but with spinach and mushrooms subbed in for the pork.

Meat Cheese Bread

Copy Link

While the compact and rustic counter shop is known primarily for its somewhat eponymous sandwiches, Meat Cheese Bread is a hot spot for its breakfast burritos in the mornings. They’re pretty straight-forward here, with scrambled eggs, hash browns, a green chile salsa, and cheddar, but the high-quality ingredients and lovely charred tortilla, plus the relatively reasonable size and portability, makes it a popular choice for those in the neighborhood. For those who like a meatier morning meal, the best move is to add bacon, which is thick cut and sourced from local purveyors.

Pepper Box Cafe

Copy Link

A popular location for affordable dining and quick breakfasts, the small but comfortable Pepper Box Cafe serves Southwestern cuisine with Northwestern ingredients, including tacos, burritos, and breakfast plates. The breakfast burrito here is a consummate hangover cure, with egg, cheese, beans, and potatoes wrapped in a tortilla and covered in the diner’s choice of red or green sauce. It’s a bit messy, but that’s part of the point.

Fried Egg I'm In Love

Copy Link

Fried Egg I’m In Love is lauded for its gooey egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches, but the cheerfully yellow cafe busts out an equally impressive breakfast burrito. The ‘Rito Suave comes filled with an omelet sort of egg, cheddar, Aardvark aioli, and a choice of protein that includes veggie options like Soyrizo or a vegan patty, though the housemade sausage is a stand out. A few slices of avocado balances out the saltiness, and the whole thing handles well enough for a breakfast on the go.

The Dog House PDX

Copy Link

While primarily a burger-focused food cart at the Lot at Scout Beer, Dog House PDX is a breakfast burrito must for those in the know. A distinguishing factor is the variety of ingredients that go beyond egg, cheese, potato, and meat. They all start with eggs and tots, then offer options including the Dank and Delicious, with grilled mushrooms and onions with blue cheese; the Cheezilla with multiple cheeses, Italian sausage, and spicy and garlic-truffle aiolis; and the super-packed Love Actually with bacon, Italian sausage, cheddar cheese, avocado, grilled mushrooms and onions, jalapenos, and herb aioli. All of them can be enjoyed to-go, out on the patio, or in the tap house.

El Gallo Taqueria

Copy Link

A cozy little cafe with red walls and counter service, El Gallo Taqueria in Woodstock starts most days with a line out the door. Eggs and crispy, golden-brown potatoes are wrapped in a toasted tortilla made in-house, along with pepperjack cheese and fired-roasted pepper, which give the burrito a nice zingy heat, especially if ordered with the rich, spicy chorizo (though vegetarians have options as well). It all comes together in a satisfying size, something that’s tricky with breakfast burritos.
