Bijou Cafe Restaurant Review

: Many of Portland's best breakfast restaurants seem to keep slacker hours, opening at 9 a.m. Those who need or desire an earlier start but still want more than standard bacon and eggs can try Bijou Cafe. There's an old-fashioned yet urban-hip style going on here, and the noisy crowd always seems content and lively. Even on the grayest Portland days, the large windows let the light stream in, but the real pleasure comes from the steaming plates of waffles, pancakes, and a multitude of first-rate egg dishes. Try the hash, whether it’s the oyster or a trendier blend of cauliflower, kale, harissa, potato, feta cheese and olives. Homey, hearty hot cereals brimming with toasted filberts and raisins are also sure to satisfy. Mimosas are made with apple cider. Lunch-seekers may choose from a wide assortment of salads, sandwiches and homemade soups. Friday night suppers featuring live jazz require reservations. Entrées can include creative, homey options such as braised curried lamb shank, radicchio salad, and seared culotte steak with warm potato salad, bacon and arugula. A full bar keeps everyone happy.
