So why would you go out to eat at a restaurant where you have to cook your own food? We had done it before years ago when we lived in Germany at this place called Di Kartoffel.  It was a very special treat. We liked the concept and even though we cooked our own steak, it was outstanding. We always took our friends and family when they came to visit and it got rave reviews every time.

Fast forward 20 years and we decide to try the same concept with pancakes. [Read more...]

Crescent Cafe

The special with pulled chicken and a verde sauce.

Crescent Cafe

We were headed to the coast and wanted to get in a late breakfast before we hit the road, but we also wanted to get down the road a ways, so we stopped in McMinnville at the Crescent Cafe. I had heard that this place as supposed to be a great. I also heard there was going to be a wait.  Sure enough we show up and there is a wait, but the owner assured us it wouldn’t take long. He was correct, we were seated rather quickly. The menu is not huge, but [Read more...]

Jam on Hawthorne

 

I won’t lie, I have heard mixed reviews on this place. But when a place has waits up to 30 minutes even after they have expanded to a much larger place, you need to find out what all the hubbub is about. We wanted to go for breakfast even though they are open all day.

I was hoping for some kind of benedict, but they don’t have any on the menu, they only have them as specials on the weekends, and even then just sometimes.

Don’t worry, I also like Corned Beef Hash. Since that was on the menu it was a no brainer. Wanting to try more, we questioned our server, who told us that we could order single serving of things in order to sample more items. [Read more...]

Cornerstone Cuisine

Eggs Benedict from Cornerstone Cuisine

Cornerstone Cuisine

When we were in Hood River we stayed at the Hood River Hotel. I love this place because it’s right in the heart of all that’s happening. You can hit wineries or breweries and not have to drive home. Or just eat well and waddle back across the street to your room.  Whatever works for  you.

When you stay at Hood River Hotel you get a $10 voucher towards breakfast. The 2 times we have stayed here we have cashed in our vouchers and [Read more...]

This is How I Do It?

Some people wonder how I stay so thin while I Eat My Way Thru Portland. That’s easy, I just exercise. As a matter of fact the only reason I exercise is so I can eat. It works for me.

Others wonder how I can afford to Eat My Way Thru Portland. Well I take advantage of Groupons like today. You can get $16 worth of food for just $9(breakfast) or $20 worth of food for $10(lunch/dinner) at Emanon Cafe. [Read more...]

It seems we have been on a bit of a breakfast kick lately. It’s my husbands favorite meal to eat out, so we take advantage of opportunities. Today he had to run downtown to take care of business. So I did what any supportive wife would do, I road along.

We have been going to Cadillac Cafe for years. As a matter of fact my in laws were going there before they even were at the new location and they have been at the “new” location for years and years.It’s our go to place for a perfect breakfast and for incredible service. You will not be disappointed at all with this place.

Bumblekiss

We just went there, I mean literally we just got home and I can still taste the garlic in my mouth from the pesto on my Eggs Benedict.

Bumblekiss is located in the Beaumont Village of Portland. It is so small. I think I counted 7 tables inside. They did have a tent set up outside, but there weren’t using it.  In the summer the tent is gone and it’s all outdoor seating.
