J&M is a quaint little cafe on the corner of SE Ash St. and 6th Ave. We showed up this morning around 9:45AM and there was hardly a wait, which is unheard of on a Saturday morning but I have an idea the winter like weather in April, might have had something to do with it. We helped ourselves to an eclectic array of mugs hanging from steel sculptured roots attached to a post in the middle of the restaurant. The coffee is Stumptown, I honestly think they are taking over the Portland area, which is fine with me.
The prices here are actually quite reasonable, more so than I remember them being. I had the scrambled eggs with the homemade turkey sausage patty. Yummm... My husband enjoyed his burrito, which is great if you have a big morning appetite.
This is a great place to go if you're a solo breakfaster. There is a bar if you want to solo it with others, or there are quite a few small tables where you could enjoy your breakfast and maybe sneak in a few minutes in you favorite book or paper, that is if not too many people are waiting to be seated.
We will definitely be coming here again soon. Maybe I'll actually brave it and be a solo breakfaster one of these days. I always think about it and some things are much more romantic in thought than in actuality. But I guess I'll never know unless I try...
