This is my FAV breakfast place offering urban southern style food like Chicken and Waffles, Cheesy Grits, and other brunch options. Think of it as an urban, hipster Cracker Barrel. Go early- they open at 8AM, to avoid the HUGE lines that are there most days. Big portions.

It's very close to Multnomah Falls (only partially open now due to a forest fire in 2017), and offers an incredible view of a unique basalt rock formation water fall. It is my favorite water fall in addition to Multnomah. Skip the upper viewpoint trail, and go to the base of the falls instead. If you want a hike, also walk up to the upper Latourelle Falls. SAFETY TIP: NEVER walk off the marked trails on ANY hike in this area. Many people get lost easily or stumble off hidden cliffs.
