If you only have brunch once in Portland, make sure it’s at Artemisia Cafe. This neighborhood spot in the Arts District serves all of the classics, like eggs benedict, scrambles, and breakfast sandwiches, and feels like you’re eating at a friend’s place, without the required volunteering to do dishes afterward. Whether you’re with people who only want to go somewhere that’s photogenic, or your in-laws who just want to find a place that opens before 11am, Artemisia Cafe is great for both.
