There was that place Tosis too--near Sir Loins
Ahhhh, memories... That donut shop up there- Annies?- is the shit, too. Man, the Rheinlander was THEE place for birthdays growing up... It was always some peripheral birthday, though, like an uncle's or cousin's. I feel like I ate at that place once a month between the ages of 11 and 17.
Used to take people to the Alibi too. Actually used to like breakfast at the Overlook. Splatter!
Now we're talking... The Overlook is the most, er, overlooked breakfast joint in town! Crazy bar, with all of those fireplaces? Awesome, and you can smoke in there, too. We go to the Alibi sometimes, too, mostly when my roommate's already fucked up (it's 5 blks from us) and gets the urge to embarass her self at karaoke. Ever wander up to the Night Hawk? Also pretty great.
Montage USED TO BE a classic... the food has gone SO far downhill over the years... Dot's is always kinda fun- reminds me of being out past curfew during HS. The Delta, too, but I went there recently and it was pretty bad. Gotham/clarklewis for their "Portland-y" nature- out of towners will inevitably say, "Well, isn't this a neat, funky, little place?", to the embarassment of all involved... Junior's is good for breakfast, too. Stumptown/Fresh Pot for coffee, 820/Slowbar/Driftwood Room for cocktails (food at 820/Mint is sucking really bad, lately- stick to booze).
