I loved this place so much. It was so funky and interesting. The food was amazing but the service and the care people showed is what makes this place a must.

The staff was very friendly and even though the place is very busy on sundays they took the time to make sure you understood the menu and options.

I would recommend the Bloody Mary, the salmon hash, the Reuben and the french toast. They don't take reservations but the queue moves quick. We barely waited 15 mins. Parking is available across the street.

A pleasant ambiance is created in the large room filled with breakfast and brunch diners. Our party of five vegetarians, vegans, non- gluten eaters, and non dairy folks found the menu fascinating. Jam on Hawthorne accommodated all of us. Between the toast, the eggs, rancheros, the tofu, the pancakes, the coffee
, chai teas and oat milk everyone in our party was happy and well filled breakfast goodies! Jam on Hawthorne got everyone’s positive thumbs up- Thank You!!

Quintessential Portland. We were in town visiting our resident kids and our first stop here was the morning after a full day touring around Hood River and the river sights. This place was within walking distance of where our kids live, and we joined a number of locals to wait for a table. It was instant love that they had a self-serve coffee urn on the sidewalk. The wait was less time than we expected as turnover is reasonable brisk at this spot. Service was efficient and delivery of food equally so, but its a comfortable kind of a hole in the wall place with no attitude. Whatever you get, have hash browns on it. Crunchy, soft in the middle, and abundant, and everything else on the plate will benefit from being mixed in. Ask for the Aardvark sauce, so hoarded locally that they have to keep track of it being swiped. One visit wasn't enough, so we were back two days later before we had to depart for home near Seattle. Full dose of simple caffeine, more hash browns, a last blast of the Aardvark sauce, and two visits worth of great Portland people watching. Price is right and the people show is free.

Be prepared to wait a while to get seated, unless you don’t mind sitting at the bar. I always opt for the bar because there is no wait to be seated, usually, and better service since the bartender is always there.
I’d recommend one of their hash plates. Huge portions. Any of the hash plates on the menu could easily be split into to two servings. Don’t forget to try their own “jam” on your toast.
Best brunch cocktails around! Come hungry and thirsty! Leave full and splendid.
