We stopped for brunch at the Tabor Hill Cafe because it is so conveniently located n the heart of the Hawthorne Neighbourhood, a few doors away from Powell's Home and Garden bookstore. This is a comfortable Portland neighbourhood with adequate off-street parking. The cafe is run by a lovely Asian couple who are both very cordial. They serve breakfast all day long. Their menu was especially amusing in that it carries the idea of having photographs of every offering to a ridiculous extreme; I could have figured out what a side of bacon looks like without a picture of three strips, cooked, on a white plate. I ordered a very simple breakfast and was sadly disappointed; I wanted to like this family-owned quaint little place. The grease in which the hash browns had been fried was due for an oil change several hundred miles before it flavoured my potatoes. The scrambled eggs were overdone and somewhat vulcanized. I ordered whole wheat toast and received toasted rye bread. And the bathroom was not particularly clean; the cleanliness of bathrooms is non-negotiable.
