Portland Restaurants: 348 reviews and 479 photos


Mother's is a great place to grab breakfast, lunch or dinner while downtown. Considered comfort food, so you'll see a french toast, mac and cheese etc.
Special thing about it, every month they have a "Mom" of the month guest menu from area (or outside) chefs.
Great service here.

Favorite Dish: My favorites include the french toast covered in corn flakes, which is beyond words.
The French press coffee is great as is the standard bacon and eggs.
Dinner, I fall for the meatloaf or chicken and dumplings. You can't really go wrong.
