Besaw’s

besawseggIf lines around the block are the windows to a brunch’s soul, then you know this 111-year-old Northwest Portland institution’s morning repast is a good egg. It also dishes up platefuls of good eggs, like the house-smoked wild salmon scramble, classic huevos rancheros, garlicky farmer’s hash, and egg-topped breakfast burger. All best washed down with one of Besaw’s infamous Bloody Marys, either in the charming dining room or out on the much sought after covered patio, from which you can hardly even hear the famished moans of the yet-to-be-seated masses. Brunchers with kids–they’re always welcome, and even moreso on Easter, which plies wee diners with egg hunts and appearances by the Besaw’s Bunny.
