Breken Kitchen

I was meeting up with someone for breakfast. We wanted some place new, but not down in the hustle and bustle of downtown(Sometimes, I like a little slower pace). After some research I came up with this place. We decided on a meeting time and we were all set. Then I put it into Google maps, and I was a little concerned. I was afraid I was taking us to some crazy industrial area.  I won’t lie, it’s times like that when I don’t like being in charge of where we are eating, especially when it’s with someone I have never met and she knows I’m a food blogger.

Lots of places to hang out, plus a patio out the door.

I went with it. I figured if it was really bad we could find another place close by. I got there before she did and I walked in and was pleasantly surprised. This space is huge and has some great touches that make it a fun place to just sit and hang out.

This place really is a coffee shop first and foremost, or at least that is how I perceived it. There is no mistaking that they serve food here though because there is a huge chalkboard wall with all their entree’s. It’s pretty much a sandwich shop, but it looked good and affordable. Since it was breakfast I was going for the breakfast sandwich.

This sandwich was great. There was nothing crazy to write home about, but it was a good, affordable sandwich. It was much larger than it appears and neither one of us finished ours entirely.

All their offerings.

If you are in the area, and you need to stop for a bit and work on your computer, this place if for you. That’s how it’s set up. But it’s also cute enough to meet a friend for coffee and a snack.

I love that they end their day on Happy Hour from 3-5pm. I even saw that they offered lasagna on the Happy Hour menu.

  • Atmosphere is a very large and open space, yet cozy all at the same time. Definitely a space to hang out in for a bit. Then even had a few comfy chairs.
  • Pricing is great. Not just on the sandwiches but on the coffee drinks and the tea.
  • They serve Ristretto Coffee and Steven Smith Tea.
  • Service was great. We chatted the gal up for a bit and before we knew we were talking Portland food. I love that.
  • Breken Kitchen is located on NW 16th.
