My daughter and I stopped here for lunch on a chilly, rainy Friday. I wanted something warm and hearty and got the beef barley soup and salad. It was a good-sized bowl and was delicious! The salad was fresh and crisp. The quirky part was when I asked for a Coke and she offered RC (Royal Crown cola). I loved... More

We eat at Genie's at least 2x a month and have never been disappointed. The eggs Benedict has 4-5 options for your protein. Always very good weekend specials as well. I only wish they had self serve coffee as when they get busy you might wait a bit for a refill. Very good bloody Mary's as well and a friendly... More

We were warmly greeted on the Sunday morning we visited. We were instructed to sit where we liked. The staff was friendly. We ordered the biscuits and gravy and the florentine omelet. Both were excellent. It's a quaint little diner that I would go back. They did have mimosas and bloody Mary's but we didn't try either. The place was... More

Ate here on our way to the airport to go home so was sad to be leaving oregon. Food was great and the staff were friendly. We were there for breakfast and the one thing that kept catching my eye was the sign for a drink that comes with a real scorpion, kinda sad I did not have the chance... More

My son took us there for breakfast on a Sunday morning somewhat on the early side (for a Sunday that is), 930 or so. We managed to secure one of the last open tables before a fairly large group of patrons began to arrive. I can understand why it is so popular. Breakfast was super - loved the apple chicken... More

The best eggs Benedict ever. High quality Canadian bacon, homemade biscuits and light hollandaise sauce with a cage free egg yum! Don't miss the juices!

An early Saturday breakfast to beat the crowd. We had their specials: Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict with potatoes O'Brien and the Three Sausage Hash. Both were delicious. Wish we hadn't been driving so we could have tried a cocktail.

I hate waiting to eat, no matter how good the promise is. But after sitting outside in the sunshine with friends and having a Mojito-ish cocktail before a table was available, it was worth it. So worth it. The place is loud with the chatter of locals getting together the Morning After, and everyone is active and smiling. Hipster wait... More

I lived in Portland for about five years and almost always chose Genie's for my breakfast/brunch spot. The servers are super friendly and incredibly fun to talk to. The bloody marys are the best I've ever had. Seriously, I've tried finding one that can compare and I'm always disappointed. Breakfast is delicious and they have so many options for vegetarians...

We waited a long time to be seated, but then understood why there was a line. Delicious food and cocktails. The best eggs benedict I've ever tasted. Yum!
