The Best Breakfast Restaurants in the Greater Portland Area

The OpenTable Team

Oregon's capital, Salem sits less than an hour's drive from Portland in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Salem boasts many unique attractions, including a gilded Oregon Pioneer atop the State Capitol building overlooking the surrounding landscape. Visitors can also check out the public gardens, enchanted theme parks, and the Willamette Heritage Center. Outdoor, and often free, activities include leisurely walks through Minto-Brown Island Park or Riverfront City Park. The culinary scene presents another great reason to check out Salem, especially when it comes to breakfast. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out in the morning? Welcome to the Tastemaker Lists. We’ve pulled data from thousands of restaurants to find the top spots among OpenTable's most expert, seasoned diners. Check out our list of the best restaurants in Salem and the surrounding area, and book a table today!
