They make such a big deal about the “mancakes” (pancakes that take up an entire plate), but they were dry and tasteless, even with blueberries added. And the child-size bit of maple syrup provided is inadequate (with a total of $10.75 for 2 pancakes). On...More

This place is very small but the food is quite good and more than sufficient quantities. It was so good I just kept eating. I was still stuffed at 7PM that night! (We had breakfast around 8:30AM). Be prepared to be very close with your...More

In preparation for a morning’s hike at Macleay Park in northern Portland, we needed a damn good breakfast. Our guide in the know immediate proposed Stepping Stone Café, located on the corner of N.W. 24th Avenue and N.W. Quimby Street (plenty of on-street parking nearby)....More

The cafe appears to have been a local establishment for a long time and being located in a neighborhood the parking is limited. We had to park three blocks away and arrived before 8:30 a.m. on a Sunday in order to get a seat. The...More

Came here for breakfast on our last day. This is a quaint neighborhood place, and is kind of quirky which works for me. It's like an old diner with new accents. The coffee was OK and I had a swiss cheese omelet. I was anxious...More
