There are two things I crave for breakfast, salt and eggs. While most days I’m terrible about making time for it, the weekends are made for brunching. Here are a few of my favorites and some I’m dying to try: salty and cheesy, herb-y and peppery, creamy, egg-filled savory goodness. Yum!

This was our second weekend in a row in Portland, last weekend for a birthday and this one for a wedding. I always think of Seattle as such an amazing city for food, but Portland has really blown my mind these past few days. Peruvian tapas, the best biscuits & gravy in the country, maple bars with bacon and the most fantastic selection of food carts I’ve ever seen. And stellar service at every single place. I don’t know what they put in the water in Portland, but every person we encountered seemed to love their craft and love sharing it. Even at the hotel and shops. We’re putting it on our list of possible retirement locations – so much happy.

Two perfect weekends. We’ll be back, soon.
