Dinner at Bijou, Other Portland Breakfast News

by BreakfastGuy on April 17, 2014 · 3 comments

I would imagine that few people have noticed, but I have been away from the breakfast blog of late. That’s for two big reasons: One is that I was wrapped up in my Indiegogo campaign and finishing up the book (going to the printer Friday, yay!) and the other is that I have been on […]

Seeing yourself on video — that’s one level of adjustment. Seeing yourself screw up on video — that’s even more fun! Below is the “blooper” reel from my Indiegogo campaign video. You can see the original at the link. It was done by the wonderful people at Ampersand Productions in Portland. Please contribute today so I […]

Hello readers and breakfast lovers, I am hard at work on producing books, which partly explains the lack of posts here lately. (Stay tuned, though, for a report from the surprisingly yummy Cafe Murrayhill in Beaverton.) The third edition of Breakfast in Bridgetown is just a couple months out, and right now is the exciting, daunting, […]

Portland Breakfast News, Thanksgiving Week

by BreakfastGuy on November 27, 2013 · 3 comments

Okay, time to catch up on all the Portland breakfast news since … well, in the embarrassingly long time since I posted something like this. First, three cool books from three cool friends: Jen Stevenson has updated her wonderful and charming book, 100 Best Places to Stuff Your Faces. It’s a ton of fun, and […]

I may be about to give up on tracking Portland breakfast news.   I mean, I am supposed to be good at this, right? And reasonably up to date? That’s why I was shocked to read “A Batch of New Brunches” from Portland Monthly’s Eat Beat. It’s a list of eight new brunches in town … and I’d […]

Not really a whole lot of Portland breakfast news this week, but I try to post something every Friday, so here we go. My mind is much more on hiking these days as I “work” (by which I mean hike and write) on revising my book 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles of Portland. The nice folks […]

My latest Portland breakfast review is a draft chapter from the upcoming (in March) third edition of Breakfast in Bridgetown. This week we have breakfast at Radio Room in Northeast Portland. Big. That’s the word I keep coming back to when I think about breakfast at Radio Room. It’s a big place. Big menu. Big portions. […]

A few pretty big pieces of Portland breakfast news this week, including three places closing, one getting invaluable media love, and another creating a video that warmed my food-loving heart. Apparently MetroVino is closing, according to and confirmed by EaterPDX. Too bad; I liked that place, had it in my Peaceful Places Portland book, […]

Not a whole lot of Portland breakfast news these days, but in my Breakfast Bulletin newsletter I recently committed to regular news postings, so here we go. The Ps and Qs Market at 1301 NE Dekum has announced a new brunch, and posted their menu, which includes a bacon and brisket hash and a shallot-potato-manchego frittata. […]

The latest Breakfast Bulletin, my every-two-weeks newsletter, came out last week. Included is the usual mix of breakfast news and reviews with other tidbits from my world, which includes hiking, travel, and spiritual ramblings. This Bulletin has: Openings and closings from the breakfast world Reviews of local breakfast places The best hike to do on Mount Hood right now […]
