Crispy hash browns, how many times all over the west coast I have asked for them only to be disappointed. Not so this time. Perfect crispness with an egg and toast. Simple but satisfying. Great staff, thank you.

We went here on a weekday morning and had a wonderful meal. All 3 of us ordered different things and all enjoyed our meals. My eggs benny were wonderful! Hash browns crispy as can be - best ever. My husband's fruit was a work of art! Friendly fast service, cool vibe. Loved it!

We stopped for a late breakfast/early lunch. We had to wait about 30 minutes because of the small space and the good food. We had breakfast food, although we could have ordered sandwiches and other lunch items. It was all very good, and the service was top-notch.

Apparently this restaurant had been hit by some jerks who broke the front windows, so the place was boarded up when we went for breakfast. Happily, they were still open and are hoping to get enough through a crowd fund to replace their broken windows. The broken windows didn't break their spirits! Great service, fantastic food, and sweet space. I... More

Cricket Cafe is like lemonade or a cold beer on a cold day - it always hits the spot! They have a good size menu with fair amount of vegetarian options. Love their veggie sausage. If you're a strict vegan you might want to take a look at the menu ahead of time. Food has always been very good, with... More

We happened to drive by and see so many in the restaurant, which usually says the food is good. We were pleasantly surprised at how great the food and service was! We ate breakfast but I took most of it home as the servings are large. The price is ok with these large plates. The food was very hot and... More

This is a hidden gem. Small neighborhood cafe. The breakfasts are very generous in size at a great price. They also have great "to go" breakfast sandwich deals. This makes me want to go have breakfast there right now!

One of the best breakfast spots in Portland, not to be missed. Kinda tough rating your local café so highly - don't want the secret to get out and find it swamped any more than it already is!

The cafe was a few blocks away from my B&B. A small, cheerful looking corner cafe. The server was very nice and offered the suggestion to get the special offered before 9 am. Great suggestion for a very inexpensive breakfast. 2 perfectly cooked eggs, hash brown potatoes, crispy bacon and toast! Everything was well prepared and tasted fresh. I ordered... More

I didn't actually eat while visiting this cafe, but I watched my husband and sister in law and they seemed to be enjoying their food! He ordered the Divine Cobb Salad and she ordered the BLAT sandwich. Both items looked freshly prepared with generous portions. We were staying just down the street and it was great to have such a...
