1. Muscadine 1465 NE Prescott St, Portland, OR 97211 (Ne 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. And then move immediately to Louisiana.

2. Café Castagna 1752 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214 (Se Portland)

Chef Wesley Johnson serves up small plates loaded with local produce in this modern venue. Café Castagna also launched an Eastern Mediterranean, Sunday-only brunch menu. The eggs Benedict has lamb ham, there are cardamom donuts, and you can add bacon to the grilled halloumi cheese and bread.

3. Oso Market + Bar 726 SE Grand Ave, Portland, OR 97214 (Se Portland)

Oso is a stylish venue offering a wide selection of food, in a tapas-style format. On the first weekend of every month though, expect something a little different: an “Adventure Brunch” with a themed menu that could focus on foods inspired by anywhere from Japan, Peru, or Spain.

4. Smallwares 4605 NE Fremont, Portland, OR 97213 (Beaumont Wilshire)

Smallwares serves inauthentic Asian cuisine one small plate at a time. Inauthentic as in take your expectations and turn them on its head. With fare like chicken lollipops and pork skin ragu, there's no better place to get your weird bar food on. For a slight return to normalcy, hit the bar for your choice cocktails, beer, and wine.

5. St Honoré Boulangerie 3333 SE Division St, Portland, OR 97202 (Sw Portland)

This boulangerie serves 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.
