Nice BreakfastHad breakfast at The Original during a weekend getaway to Portland. We were seated promptly & had a nice intimate type quasi-booth that was nice for the two of us. My wife (the health nut) had the oatmeal with fruit; she said it was fine. I had the Crab Cake Benedict ... it was great!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing brûlée French toastMemorial day brunch with friends who are locals.

We were rewarded with one of the best meals we've had out in a long, long time. The food, drinks and ambiance were fantastic. Can't wait to go back.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!This place is awesome. It's right downtown, and during the weekend, early, there is plenty of parking. The restaurant is clean, modern, and their food is very good. I had breakfast and ordered a cheese and ham omelet. It was perfect...not too greasy or dried out. The staff is friendly, although a little too eager to take my plate before I was finished. I would recommend this place to anyone.Oh, and it's affordable!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. ItThe food was excellent.
