Showed up at 9:00 a.m. just as they were opening (They usually open at 8:00 a.m., but had had some a/c electrical issues.) We were three, and enjoyed an ample booth and delicious food. Once they brought us our food (in a timely manner) they...More

My second trip to this neighborhood spot. This time it was oatmeal and it was delicious. Their coffee needs a little work however. I recommend this place for the atmosphere!

Breakfast for 3 on a Sunday morning. We arrived just-in-time, no wait for a table. Small, fun place with delicious food and excellent service at a good price. Highly recommend them and will gladly go again.

This is a great breakfast joint for a large plate of potatoes. Waffle is great and is one of my wife's favorite dishes. Their toast is the best in Portland. Great coffee. Love this place. Small and intimate. A fantastic breakfast joint!

I have never left a review but please do not go to this restaurant. The owner is completely nuts. She verbally and physically assaulted me while our family was waiting for a table. My family was in town for a wedding mid-July and we had...More

Insulting, rude, aggressive, and condescending waitress. The music was piercingly loud so I asked if she could lower it because I have tinnitus. She said that it's "impossible" because it is played at only one volume level. She said "Everyone else loves the music." There...More

Yes...I'm from Austin, Texas and enjoyed the migas breakfast at Junior's. Not only was the food good, we received personable service with a good history lesson on the marionberry. Only in Oregon. My son is from Portland and eats here mucho and they definitely remembered...More
