Your tip sheet to good breakfast in Portland, OR and surrounding areas. I personally love to find good breakfast places... you know the kind that are inconspicuous and may be a hole in the wall but they have great food. The most important factor is whether or not they have good coffee!

Joe Bar (Seattle)
I came upon this unique coffee house by the suggestion of someone from the area. I was informed that this is one of Bill Gates' favorite places to visit. I have no way of validating that but there is a newspaper article cut out and framed proudly at the counter with a picture of Bill sitting at one of their tables.
You will drive by it if you don't know it is there, as it is located a little off the beaten path. I admit it is more of a lunch place than breakfast though if you are happy with a pastry and coffee in the morning, it'll be perfect. This blog is about good coffee mostly so I have to give a shout out to a coffee shop here and there. They serve crepes, paninis, soup, salad and a few different antipasta plates. They also are not only a coffee bar but have a beer and wine menu as well. This is the perfect place for a fun little date for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner. If you are date-less, grab your laptop and go sip some espresso or your favorite wine and enjoy a few hours by yourself with their free wi-fi. Have fun!
