Portland is a well-rounded West Coast metropolis, featuring a gorgeous natural bounty, and a hip and creative cultural scene.
Portland’s edgy and unconventional spirit shines through its vibrant restaurant and coffee house scene.
You can enjoy a coffee and mimosa with friends to start a fun-filled day of bike riding through Washington Park or perusing titles at Powell’s Books.
The only thing better than brunch is bottomless brunch, an endless all-you-can-drink experience with an equally vast menu of sweet and savory meals to match.
I’ve compiled a list of the taverns, cafes, and restaurants with the best brunch in Portland that’s so boozy it’s basically bottomless.
1800 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214
Located in a massive two-story space in Kerns, The Eastburn is a taproom, bar, and gastropub with two large bars, a dining room, arcade games, and even a fun outdoor patio.
It’s a veritable adult playground, replete with daily specials, trivia, and the ultimate boozy weekend brunches.
In true Portland-style, there’s a vegetarian and vegan option for every section, including cocktails!
They have the most over-the-top bloody mary menu, with multiple garnishes depending on your dietary preferences.
The chicken and biscuit Bloody Mary has pepperoncini, pickled green beans, cocktail onions, green olives, and pickled asparagus with fried sriracha chicken and a biscuit.
Believe it or not, that’s a drink, not a meal!
Their meals are equally extravagant.
I loved their Croque Madame, using locally sourced cheddar, ham, and farm-fresh egg on sourdough smothered in bechamel.
Brix – Pearl
1338 NW Hoyt St, Portland, OR 97209
Brix is a cozy and lively tavern in the heart of the Pearl District, offering creatively plated classic American bar fare and cocktails for lunch, dinner, happy hour, and weekend brunch.
Executive Chef Humberto Rivera sources ingredients for their various menus from local farms. Brunch is from 9:30 to 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
The best part about the brunch is the complementary house-made donuts that are always piping hot.
As a tavern, boozy beverages are their specialty, so count on a showstopping brunch cocktail menu. You can also opt for a bottomless mimosa brunch.
I had a Mexican-inspired brunch with a Fremont Mary, a jalapeno cilantro vodka cocktail, and a Southern Benedict with poached eggs over corn cakes with mole pork and chipotle hollandaise.
2508 SE Clinton St, Portland, OR 97202
Broder Café is a Scandinavian breakfast and lunch eatery with a full cocktail bar in the quaintest Old World storefront in the Division Clinton area of Portland.
The charming atmosphere with antique chandeliers, an open kitchen, and wood finishes is a wonderful place to enjoy an authentic brunch any day of the week.
You won’t find a more unique or authentic menu anywhere else in Portland.
They feature traditional breakfast and lunch dishes from Sweden, Finland, and Norway, along with Scandinavian cocktails.
I went for a warm cocktail called Dutchman’s milk with Genever, Combier, bitters, honey, cinnamon, and oat milk.
For my meal, I went with the Swedish Hash dish, known as Pytt I Panna, with potatoes cubed and fried with bell peppers and onions.
It’s also topped with soft baked eggs, pickled beets, and house-smoked trout with Nordic rye toast.
3526 N Vancouver Ave, Portland, OR 97227
Bread and Honey Café is a Boise neighborhood favorite for unpretentious and friendly service, food, and atmosphere.
Owner and head chef Dyani Walden uses her experience working in numerous restaurants to inform her cooking and laudable mission to create a budget-friendly dining experience from a passionate family of staff and cooks.
The menu has a vast selection of smoothies and brunch favorites from around the U.S.
Whether you want a breakfast burrito, biscuits and gravy, or breakfast empanadas, everything is made with simple and flavorful whole ingredients.
I had a bellini with savory biscuits and gravy plate with two homemade biscuits topped with bacon apple brie and smothered in sausage gravy.
2239 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214
Jam on Hawthorne is a lively, family-friendly brunch café owned by Oregonian natives Gordon Feighner and Katie Prevost.
Located between Buckman and Belmont, Jam on Hawthorn sources its artisanal coffee from the neighborhood coffee roasters, makes jam from scratch, and sells mimosas and bloody marys by the bucket.
I like that you can choose freshly squeezed juices for your mimosas from a selection of orange, pineapple, cranberry, and grapefruit.
Brunches also come with bottomless coffee.
Their brunch menu has various creative takes on breakfast classics like eggs benny, comfort food breakfast, sweet dishes, and Mexican breakfasts.
I wanted to sample their house-made jams, so I went for lemon ricotta pancakes topped with blueberry compote.
