One of my favorite places to have breakfast - their deep fried french toast is delicious and I especially love the seasoned potatoes (such a welcome change from hashbrowns).

The ambiance is mellow and relaxed and I never feel rushed -

This restaurant has such a nice feel, great service, and delicious food. I highly recommend the "Siskiyou Scramble." Prices are average and I never leave disappointed.

A must have restaurant for any neighborhood. This long lasting Portland treasure has consistently over the years kept up the quality of the food served without raising the cost of the meal. Great for a family dinner or a nice leisurely lunch. The Sunday brunches are delicious! Good ambiance and great photos on the walls. A place where you can dress up or down, depending on your mood.

This is a neighborhood mainstay. Brunch is our favorite, look forward to the French toast, omelets are great too. Relaxed, generous portions and good service.

We found this delightful cafe on a recent trip to Portland, and were blown away by the food & service. What a charming restaurant! The atmosphere was intimate without being pretentious... we were privy to a young boy's birthday party, while enjoying one of the best meals we have ever had. Our 11 year old son had, arguably, the best burger & fries he has ever eaten. The burger meat was hormone-free (this really makes a difference in the taste & texture of the meat) & it was grilled to perfection, while the hand-cut fries were the best any of us had ever eaten before. Our son is always on the look-out for the "best burger", & this one just topped his list! Prior to the main course, I had an arugula & green apple salad with candied walnuts & bleu cheese, while my husband had a ceasar salad. For the main course, my husband & I enjoyed a shared entry of pasta primavera in a garlic cream sauce... which the chef graciously separated into 2 serving bowls. This was served with freshly baked french bread. All food items were absolutely delicious! We followed dinner with the peanut butter pie. It was unbelieveably good. I have to admit, I over-ate a bit because the food was so amazing. While the food & the atmosphere were nearly perfect ( I cannot find a single flaw in either), the waitstaff was even more so.... they made us feel like welcome guests in their home. Any request that we made, was met with cheerful enthusiasm. We felt so lucky to have discovered this wonderful restaurant, it made for a magical evening. We will visit Alameda Cafe again & again, whenever we visit Portland.

Cons: None!

This little neighborhood gem has been around for many years. We have married, raised our children and moved two times and we still continue to support this great cafe. The food and service have especially improved over the past several months. We absolutely love the breakfast they offer daily and are really happy to find out that their original meatloaf has returned to the dinner menu.
If you are seeking a clean and pleasant atmosphere with decent prices and delicious food then go to the Alameda!

Don't be lured in by the fact that you can get a table here with very little wait. There's a good reason for that- this was one of the worst breakfasts I have ever had. This place has never been my favorite, but it has gotten unbearable. The signature James Beard french toast tasted like it was either made for another party two hours ago and sat under a heat lamp, or used three day old bread. It was nearly impossible to chew.

Bacon and eggs were ridiculously greasy, as though they had some extra canola oil poured on after cooking. Even my son's waffle was stale and icky. When a 4 year old chooses not to finish a waffle drowned in syrup, you have a problem.

Coffee was subpar, service was slow and not very friendly. Never, EVER going back, no matter how long the wait is at any other breakfast place in town.

The Alameda Cafe is one of my favorite places for lunch. The Alameda burger is just right for me, tasty and fresh. The coffee and desert is also great, the blackberry cobbler is to die for. What a nice clean and cheerful place for a nice lunch. Give them a try for breakfast also.

Moved away several years ago, and was looking forward to returning to one of my favotrite neighborhood resturants.. after having lunch I wondered what had happened there... upon entering there was somewhat of a vacant feeling.. the lunch entrees were expensive for what you received... the service was friendly and adequate... the food was very ordinary... one of the items had to be returned to the kitchen twice. as it was not edible..
needless to say a huge disappointment....

We always try to be SLOB's (Support Locally Owned Businesses) so with the Cafe so close we walked there a few weeks ago. The night was chilly and the food was perfect. I had their Shepard's Pie and my man had Chicken PotPie. The portions were great and the price fair. The art work on the walls was very beautiful and for sale. The service was a bit standofish but fast. Great neighborhood spot for a hearty dinner!

Had to write this review to warn other parents. If you go to the Alameda bring something for your little ones to drink, they only have orange and grapefruit juice and no soy milk - also no kid's menu available. When we asked for kid friendly meals we were given our choice of grilled cheese sandwich or pasta with butter & cheese. We chose the pasta and it showed up considerably later than the rest of the food (like when everyone else was almost done) and it was uncooked cold pasta with parmesan shavings on it. no butter. no olive oil. it was inedible. I called the restaurant afterward to confirm that the person in our party who paid the check DID NOT pay for that plate of pasta and got a very nice person on the phone who apologized to me.

I have to throw this in - my four year old was a trooper because I got soy milk out of the car and was able to feed her a granola bar from my purse while she waited 1/2 hour for her cold inedible pasta to get to the table. Got kids? Skip this place completely or come prepared with their food and drink.

oh and the food? The people in our party that had burgers said they were really very good. People who ate other food (fish n chips, omelet, salad) rated their food as mediocre.

I've eaten breakfast here several times. It's good food but the restaurant often feels over-crowded and it's quite expensive for breakfast. Also, no espresso here.

Went to the Alameda Cafe this weekend with a friend. There was no wait for breakfast, which was great since we were straving. The food was really good, the homefries were great. The coffee was a little bitter and the service was a little slow. It surprised me since I counted five people working in the dining room, all were standing around. I will go back because of the food, but maybe there should be a someone out front who is in charge.

My friends and I have been frequenting this small cafe for many years. In fact, when we started going there they did not offer breakfast. Now you can go there for any desired meal and experience a tasty and pleasant experience at any given time.We love their generous portion of fish and chips for lunch, eggs benedict for breakfast, and if we are not in the mood for one of their amazing entrees we order their delicious burgers with perfect fries for dinner. With pleasant service in a charming atmosphere you can't go wrong at this place!

This place costs too much money and doesn't deliver enough food for your buck. If you want them to bring you no food for lots of money and ugly waitresses then go there. My food was good, but where is the rest of it.

My family and I relocated to Portland a few months ago and while traveling back from PDX I stopped by this charming cafe with them. I could not believe the lunch we were served, it was incredible! Flavors intermingled with textures, presentations were top notch and prices were fair. I was informed by our server this was a new menu and the cafe recently hired a new chef from Martha's Vineyard. Naturally we had to go back for dinner. Before ordering our entrees we were presented with complimenty focaccia bread that was amazing. When my Miso halibut arrived, on a bed of pureed carrots, It was a feast for the eyes and was honestly the best I have ever tasted. We will be returning for more!

My wife and I haden't visited our little neighbor hood Alameda Cafe in over a year. The service had just gotten too bad for us to tolerate. We decided to try it again 3 weeks ago. I am so glad that we did! The menu has changed and is great! I had one of the best Eggs Benedicts that I have ever tasted. The new menu has great variety. We were especially glad to see the Santa Fe Railroad French Toast was still a specialty. The service was so pleasant. My coffee cup was never empty and our waitress was one of the best I have ever had. We have been back the past two Saturdays for breakfast. It is so nice to have our spot back!

Alameda Cafe has comfort food at its finest--A tad gourmet but comfortable, ya know? It's not a pretentious place, but the prices are decent, not cheap. The coffee is good, the menu is somewhat creative, and there are definitely a few stand outs--Where else can you go and get such sinful food, deep fried french toast? C'mon. They've got a very good basic grilled cheese sandwich sans the gooey-ness. The cheese is actually grilled--halloumi cheese, sheeps milk. Very good! I've never had anything like that before. So A for uniqueness, same with the french toast.

The thing is, you gotta keep going back to restaurants. Things change. Management changes, Chefs change. Just because you had one bad experience 5 yrs ago, or even 5 months ago, don't write the place off completely. I know it's hard, because you want to spend your money on decent food. Personally, the first time I ate here, I wasn't impressed with the food. The wait staff can be somewhat ditzy. But since going back, not only has the wait staff changed, the chef, menu, and prices have also been altered.

That pretty much sums up my opinion thus far. I like the place, the people are nice, and I can easily be induced with food coma ... : )

I've been here on several occasions and the best I can describe it is "ok". It's not bad, but it's not good. The location is great, but with so many other nice breakfast/lunch spots in Portland this is low on my list. If you want ok food without much hassle, then go here. If you want great food, look elsewhere.

Just found this place the other day. The beer was great. The cocktails pack quite a kick! Our family split several appetizers. The SMALL onion ring plate was HUGE. They were good, except no salt whatsoever, and a few of the rings were very soggy. We also had smoked chicken quesadillas. They were excellent. We got a hummus plate as well, and it was good, but there was no feta. Service was good, the waitress very accommodating. We will go again.

First of all, this place has great atmosphere! Wonderfully warm and inviting, without feeling too fancy for a great breakfast. When we walked in the service was really friendly, which for me makes all the difference. I had a great omelet and the coffee was great. I think they use Stumptown. We will definitely be back!

What a great find! Breakfast at this cafe is always tasty. We especially enjoy having the option to create our own omelettes. Their servers know us by our names and they even bring water for our dog whenever we sit outside. Can't go wrong with this great restaurant!

I live down the street from this place, so it is important to support local businesses; however the low level of service I've recieved on my past two visits has made me think twice about supporting this resturant. The breakfast menu is simple with some great variation but the headache brought on by the wait-staff makes eating here a dreadful. I asked about a specific substitution (over medium eggs instead of scrambled) and was told that it was no problem. When the meal arrived, the order was wrong and I was told I should have let the waiter know what I wanted. On top of that, I was told I would have to "wait a very long time" if I really wanted to have my order fixed. All I wanted was a couple of over medium eggs, and it took 20 minutes for those two eggs. We were told our coffee and tea would be taken off the tab, and weren't. Just plain awful service.

Wow! What a great neighborhood cafe! Where else can you go seven days a week for a quality breakfast, lunch or dinner with friendly service, fair prices and a great atmosphere? We meet our friends there for a fun evening out, take our children there for breakfast, or plan a business meeting at lunch with our colleagues knowing that we can always count on a deicious meal. Kudos to the "Alameda" for offering something for everyone!

Visiting this quaint Portland cafe for over 10 years I have not had an unpleasent experience to date. My lunch ,fish tacos or the cafe sandwich, along with the best fries in Portland, are items that please my taste buds on every visit. You could not ask for better, friendlier service, in fact for my "custom made" omelette on the week-ends I find myself sitting outside draining my coffee cup like there is no tomorrow and before it nears the bottom, a friendly server steps outside and fills it. During dinner my date and I are always treated like it is our first time with the main course, usually halibut, being mothwatering and tasty every time.

We arrived at 11 Saturday morning and a sign instructed us to seat ourselves so we did on one of the sidewalk tables, ten minutes later no sign of a waitperson. Finally our waitress arrived with one menu for the two of us; we were faced with a small selection of simple omelettes and such averaging $9. After what seemed like a long time our meals arrived and our waitress realized that we did not have utensils or napkins. Our omelettes were made of quality ingredients, but the potatoes were completely unseasoned. Overall the food was uninteresting and the service was poor, especially for the price.

We went in for brunch and although crowded, the service we got was appaling. We sat outside and were ignored for about 10 minutes until I finally went in and got my own menu. Then, we sat a bit more until a waitress came out who stood and looked at us like we were a problem. She never smiled or apologized about the wait. I said, "Can we order?" She said sure like it was an odd request. We ordered our breakfast and d two cups of coffee and sat and sat for another 10-15 minutes never getting our coffee. We finally got up and left. It was the worst service I had ever experienced.

The blue cheese, bacon chicken on an onion roll is very tasty and heavy. However, the bacon is a bit too well done. The meatloaf sandwich is a pass item. The fries rank right up there with Helvatia Tavern as the best in Portland metro. Service is friendly, but oh so slow!

We have gone here several times. There has never been a wait, but there always seem to be quite a few people there.

The food is tasty and there is a good variety.

The parking stinks. Not the cheapest place to eat, but two people can eat dinner for $30.00.

Pros: Comfortable, Tasty, Friendly
