Oso Market: Holly Johnson

Yes, Portlanders loves brunch. They have no problem being the 30th person in line for a biscuit or waiting for more than an hour for a table (unless they pick the right place, obviously). But do you know what Portlanders loves even more? New brunches, which is why we've rounded up the five best places to get it in Stumptown...

Muscadine

Muscadine

Northeast Portland
This Southern breakfast and lunch spot offers New Orleans-style beignets, biscuits & gravy, and fried chicken. Also, thanks to a nice array of morning cocktails, you can start your day off like they apparently do in Louisiana. Then immediately move to Louisiana.

Cafe Castagna

Southeast Portland
Last month, Chef Wesley Johnson launched his new Eastern Mediterranean, Sunday-only brunch menu for. The eggs Benedict has lamb ham, there are cardamom donuts, and you can add bacon to the grilled halloumi cheese and bread.

Oso Market + Bar: Holly Johnson

Oso Market + Bar

Industrial District
Brunch is Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm, with rustic options like chorizo-stuffed dates, kabocha squash pancakes, and Bloody Marys. But on the first weekend of every month expect something a little different: an "Adventure Brunch" with a themed menu that could focus on foods from places like Japan, Peru, or Spain.

Little Green Pickle

Smallwares

Northeast Portland
Brunch is the newest addition to this Asian-fusion spot. For starters there’s a kimchi Bloody Mary, the bao is made with breakfast sausage, and they do an unusual take on congee, with Chinese sausage, savory granola, and egg.

St. Honoré Boulangerie

Saint Honore Bakery

Southeast Portland
This boulangerie recently started serving brunch on weekends from 9am to 2pm, and possibly not coincidentally we recently started eating a ton of savory quiche and brioche Croque sandwiches while swilling mimosas and cider-based cocktails.
