Our first visit, we had a nice lunch. Went back the next day for breakfast. Had good eggs benedict and great salmon and cream cheese omelet. Went back for a macaroon. Three visits, two days. :)

We were flying out of PDX early, and stopped by for breakfast. It was good, especially the lox and bagels, and egg and cheese bagels. Good food airport or otherwise.

We were looking for a quick bite to eat before we tackled Powell's. The bagel with the olive cream cheese was excellent. The staff was spread pretty thin so I cannot say the meal was quick. The staff seemed very knowledgeable about the dishes on...More
