Weekend Drinks: Portland's Best Liquid Brunches

Weekend Drinks: Portland's Best Liquid Brunches

In Portland, you don't have to be hungry to enjoy a delicious brunch! Check out where to find the best liquid brunches in town.

Simpatica: Thanks to this dining hall’s commitment to seasonal, fresh ingredients, even the most regular visitor might never tire of the changing menu. However, the Grapefruit Mimosa is reliably on the list and also reliably delicious. The acidity of the citrus cuts the over-sugary taste and midmorning hangover you can get from the traditional OJ version (828 SE Ash St.; 503-235-1600).

Miss Delta: Notwithstanding our city’s famously diverse mindset and palate, this North Portland soul food stop remains the only place in town to find a properly spicy southern Bloody Mary. If you don’t agree, just add more heat with the wide array of sauces that comes standard on every table (3950 N Mississippi Ave.; 503-287-7629).

Tasty and Sons: The bartenders know how long the wait to get into this classic brunch spot can be, so to take the sting off they’ve crafted the best cocktail menu you can find before noon. While the Tasty Mary is aptly named, your drink options are not limited to the morning classics, offering instead a full menu of hand-crafted cocktail (3808 N Williams Ave.; 503-621-1400).

C bar: This SE bar is arguably the most Portland brunch spot of all, because it’s the only place you can order seasonal hash and play classic pinball at the same time. You don’t even have to make a high score to enjoy the all-day happy hour on Sundays or the extra-large mimosas, which would be like a two- for-one deal anywhere else (2880 SE Gladstone St.; 503-230-8808).

Metrovino: Hop on the streetcar and head over to Metrovino for a Quick Little Pick Me Up made of Ramazzotti (a bittersweet Italian amaro) infused with Stumptown Hairbender espresso beans. On a clear winter day, use that extra espresso energy to enjoy the great downtown location — the bar is nestled between Tanner Springs Park and a dog park with one of the best views of the Fremont Bridge you can find (1139 NW 11th Ave.; 503-517-7778).

Broder: What time of year could be more appropriate for trying Portland’s premier Nordic restaurant? This winter, warm up with a Dutchman’s Milk, made of genever, orgeat, milk, and bitters, along side dishes meant to sustain people on colder days than even Mount Hood ever sees (2508 SE Clinton St.; 503-736-3333).

Radio Room: If you think the most common problem with Portland brunch is overcrowding then you’ll love Radio Room. With seating for groups inside or outside around the fire, this is a great place to keep the party going from the previous night. Stop by on Sunday to try your hand at building the best Bloody Mary of all time at the build-your-own Bloody Mary Bar (1101 NE Alberta St.; 503-287-2346).

The Woodsman Tavern: Bloody Mary in a hurry? The Woodsman Tavern has the morning cocktail staple pre-bottled so the flavors have time to meld and, more importantly, come out as quickly as possible (4537 SE Division St.; 971-373-8264).
