Bridges Cafe and Catering

I don't know why but "and catering" has actually kept me away from trying this place. It's like putting "and tavern" on the end of a dinner restaurant. Not that it's a similar meaning it just gives me the same reaction and I couldn't explain to you why that is...

I loved this little cafe! It is very quaint. I went here on a weekday and there was plenty of room but I can't tell you what it's like on the weekends. Their french toast is scrumptious. They had my favorite combination that I rarely find on the menu: french toast, sausage and eggs for $8.95. Now is that so hard, really now? But you tell me if you ever see that combo on any menu. They make their own sausage, pork or veggie. I had the pork, mmm, mmm! Sorry veg heads, I'm sure the veggie is tasty. Veggie and sausage just never sounded right together to me. My friend had the eggs benedict that was recommended by our server Lee (I think that is his bike out front). It looks unbelievably good. I can never afford the eggs benedict. When I am old, I will wear purple and eat eggs benedict!

They serve K&F coffee here. It is a local roaster. I had about 4 cups, whooa that seems like so much when you actually write it down. Needless to say it was good coffee. I don't hear much about K&F Roasters? The prices were actually pretty reasonable they have something for everyone. 2716 NE MLK Blvd. Portland OR. 97212 503.288.4169

They actually started as a catering place years ago, and as I recall they used to have a "Slacker Breakfast" special that wasn't available until about 10 -- because what kind of slacker is eating before then?

Anyway, next time, check out the catfish hash, one of my favorites in town.

I ate here once and it stands out as the worst breakfast I can remember having. They put cherry juice in my mimosas, the hollandaise was broken and the muffin was burned on the eggs benedict. The server was a rude guy, my breakfast took 45 minutes and I will never go there again. It was two summers ago and It still irritates me when I drive past it.
I go to breakfast places all the time and never have a problem. I detest this place.
