Fun, intimate “hole in the wall” cafe serving down-home breakfast and brunch. It easily stands out in what’s become an increasingly competitive scene. Brunch fanatics, start lining up now…

Best Breakfast I've ever had; Biscuits and gravy are to die for. The week-end wait can be long. – Service is relaxed and friendly. The counter seats have an R rated quality to them so be careful. Breakfast is expertly prepared and perfectly done. This is one of the best breakfasts in Portland, but the wait for a table on the week-ends can be long. The kitchen is open to all to see, and the show the cooks put on is just amazing.

One of the best – The food is great and, if you don't mind an informal atmosphere, then you will love Bertie Lou's! Only drawback, sometimes there is a long wait because it's so popular.

Hungry for Hollandaise! – This little hole-in-the-wall has a sense of humor, and the food being served all around us looked great. However, the wait for our food was disastrously long. We watched hungrily, as EVERY SINGLE PERSON who came in behind us got served before us. After 45 min, I asked the waitress to please check on our order. Her response was classic, "Oh, well its coming. It takes a longer time to poach eggs." What does she take me for, a chump? A poached egg takes 3 minutes. Anyway, 55 minutes after we arrived the waitress came, with no apologies for serving every other customer in the place first. And Eggs Benedict was just *okay*. The Hollandaise was too salty, thick and abnormally yellow. If I didn't know better, I'd think it might've come from <gasp> a can!? I might go back and try something else on the menu.

Great Breakfast – Early AM food, great prices and relaxing! Be prepared for a wait though.
