Mae’s Cafe and Bakery

January 14, 2013

Mae’s Cafe offers a sun-filled breakfast and lunch menu that includes old favorites and new twists, with particular emphasis on vegetarian and gluten-free options. Service is friendly, the atmosphere is charming, and although the space fills quickly on a Sunday morning, it never felt overwhelming or disproportionate. Try the cinnamon buns and the pecan sticky buns.

The Bayou Kitchen

January 14, 2013

The Bayou Kitchen has been serving Louisiana-style breakfast and lunch favorites to Portland for more than 23 years — for a reason. Until Portland has a uniquely Cajun or Creole sit-down dinner restaurant, those looking for a bayou influence must content themselves with earlier hours, but the upside of this schedule is an authentic bayou flair applied creatively to brunch favorites. Go, and I doubt you will be disappointed.

There’s a lot of reasons people in Portland love going to Hot Suppa. Here’s one of them: breakfast arrives on a big blue platter in what seems like two minutes flat, and it’s fresh, hot and delicious. There’s local art on the walls and hot sauce on the tables. If you feel the need for a little hair of the dog, they do serve some eye-openers such as mimosas, a Cajun Bloody Mary and “The Dude.”
