A Delicious Breakfast at Broder Cafe

Yesterday morning Frank took me to one of his favorite breakfast spots called Broder Cafe, a beautiful little place that serves Scandinavian foods. To start we got an order of aebleskivers (which in Danish means apple slices) which are these wonderful, fluffy pastries that you dip in lemon curd and marion berry jam. Honestly they were some of the most delicious little pastries I’ve ever had.

For my main meal Frank and I ended up getting the same thing, a bacon, mushroom, gouda scramble with a potato latke and toast. It was amazing as the photos above make it look, really rich and a ton of flavor. The onions in the latke were perfect and the mushrooms in the scramble were a perfect consistency. The coffee was also delicious and most important to me, the service was great. We always had water at our table and the waiter (who may have been the owner?) checked in on us frequently.

If you’re in Portland or are just visiting this is place is a must visit.
