BEST PLACES FOR

BOUNTIFUL BRUNCHING

HUNNYMILK

With both a West Burnside brick and mortar and an eastside weekends-only pop-up, this pretty prix fixe brunch cafe makes it easy to treat mom to something a little unexpected this Mother’s Day. Chef Brandon Weeks’ $23 menus rotate regularly, but the format stays the same—first, choose a drink (obviously the caramel hot chocolate with toasted milk marshmallows), then something from both the sweet and savory sections, perhaps the smoky bacon Dutch baby and key lime curd-filled poppy seed crêpe, or the crispy pork ribs and cheesy garlic grits with a honey butter-dipped fortune cookie waffle.

FOXTAIL BAKESHOP AND KITCHEN

Part of Bend’s exciting and ever-evolving Box Factory project near the Old Mill, pastry chef-owner Nickol Hayden-Cady’s comely bakery and cafe promises an artful experience, from the gorgeous wall mural to the dazzling pastry case to the plates piled with edible art—think matcha white chocolate-dipped brioche doughnuts, sweet potato waffles with hazelnut butter and citrus marmalade, and white cheddar béchamel-soaked lamb moussaka.

BRODER ØST

Hungry Hood River residents know where to queue up when the brunch bell rings. The eastern outpost of Portland’s favorite Scandinavian-style breakfast spot delivers piping hot skillets of smoked trout hash with hearty walnut toast, crispy smashed potatoes splashed with marjoram cream and pyramids of freshly baked aebleskiver ready to dip in housemade lemon curd and lingonberry jam, in a lovely, light-filled nook adjoining downtown’s historic Hood River Hotel.

THE LONE PINE CAFE

Grab a sidewalk table at this Baker City brunch bastion and watch the locals meet, greet and gossip as you dig into heaping plates of homemade buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy, salsa-verde-drenched huevos rancheros, or one (or two) of the sublime softball-sized cinnamon rolls. Or try the good old, basic breakfast—with thick-cut wedges of German rye toast, savory potato sausage patties, perfectly sunnyside up eggs, and crispy home fries.
