Good basic food, extra cheesy hashbrowns were too heavy for either of the people in my party who had them. Biscuits and gravy were a good texture but not a lot of sausage or flavor. Coffees were great! Excellent service, arrived for reservation right on...time and table was ready, no wait even though they were busy. Probably will not be back, sorry.More

Ordered breakfast for carry out the veggie scramble and cheesy hash browns. So many veggies in the scramble and topped with slices avocado just right ripeness. The cheesy has browns were shredded potato just done enough with cheese and a crusty top. Very tasty. Little...beignets thrown in too! Be sure to ask for utensils though, I forgot and they weren't included. The hostess and the manager Mr Almaguer were so friendly and professional.More

Outstanding brunch! Our adult daughter and son-in-law suggested this restaurant and it was an awesome suggestion. We tried the Croque Madame ($19.) the Apple Frittwich ($16), the Egg Sandwich ($16) and the Eggs Benedict ($18). All were served with cheesy hash browns - and the...portions were huge. Not one of us were able to finish! Everything was excellent. That you to Cheryl’s for taking reservations (many breakfast/brunch) restaurants in Portland do not.More

This place is the best. Super welcoming, who doesn’t like complimentary beignets, and delicious. I went on a food tour and am so glad this was one of the stops! We had a great conversation with Ed and Cheryl the owners and loved every bite...of the 4 or 5 dishes we tried. Breakfast sandwich on an apple fritter? Mind blowing.More

It was father's day and really crowded but the restaurant handles the crowds very well. Our reservation was only slightly delayed and then we got our food within fifteen minutes. The Bloody Marys and food were excellent! Great service also. It's so impressive that a...place this popular can be this efficient and maintain great quality food and service. No one got rattled. They were all friendly. Beignets were an included appetizer and they were awesome. As good as new orleans! Thanks for a great father's day experience.More

We went to this spot based on Trip Advisor reviews and were really disappointed. The place is cute and was packed with people for Thursday lunch/brunch. The only reason it got any stars at all was because the service was good and fast. I would...have preferred they take more time and make the food better. My husband had the Grinder (Italian sub) and the roll was so big and doughy that it totally overwhelmed any filling. I tried the biscuits and sausage gravy, usually a favorite of mine. The gravy was so thick that it was almost like eating mashed potatoes and I had to really search for a few small bits of sausage. I could understand the lack of actual sausage if the gravy had even a hint of sausage flavor, but it had virtually no flavor at all - kind of like mashed potatoes. The menu is huge so maybe we ordered the wrong thing, but we won't be giving it a second chance.More

Made a reservation and was seated right away. Server was very pleasant. Wife had a bowl and I the pork sandwich. Both were good although the French fries I had were cold and soggy. Very very noisy. Would we go back????🤷‍♂️.

My wife flew in early Sat morning 6/3/23 @ 8:30 am at PDX from Fresno. I wanted to make her return special - so breakfast at Cheryl's on 12th was my surprise to her. The couple sitting next to us was from San Jose, CA...celebrating their 10th Anniversary. They had gorgeous looking drinks to go with their breakfast - a Bloody Mary and an Espresso Martini. We ordered 2 Espresso Martinis to go with her Portuguese Fried Rice with an Egg and my Huevos Rancheros with Bacon. Before the meal was served - 2 Complimentary warm Beignets with sugar were served. Absolutely divine! When the drinks and meals were served we just relaxed and felt very special. Everything we ate and drank was superb. Adrian was our waiter and he provided great service. the wait staff are all dressed in black and they scurry around effortlessly taking care of all the customers. This is my favorite go to place for breakfast and it has never disappointed.More
