Brunch tends to be many Portlanders favorite meal of the day, so it's no surprise that there is a wide assortment of restaurants to chose from in Portland, Oregon. From upscale establishments to the neighborhood cafe there is one thing each of these of in common and it it excellent brunch. No two eateries are alike on our list. They all have their own vibe and special spin on brunch. Jam for example makes their own jam and is vegan friendly. La Petite Provence is half French bakery and half quaint cafe. Slappy Cakes lets you craft and grill your own pancakes. 

We did factor in how many days a week each establishment is actually open for breakfast. We put all of the ones that are only open on the weekends at the bottom of our list. The fact that there food goes above and beyond was worth putting them on the list despite only offer brunch on Saturday and Sunday. In fact people often wait well over an hour just to get the chance to eat brunch at the Screen Door. Olympia Provisions is also only opened on the weekend, but are known to have the best eggs benedict in all of Portland. It helps to that they take reservations, which is almost unheard of at popular brunch spots. 

We hope you enjoy sleeping in and partaking in a brunch of one of the places on our list!
