Favorite Breakfast Spots In Portland, Maine

October 9, 2023

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal and there are no shortage of delicious options in the Portland area. Here are some of my go-to spots to catch a tasty breakfast or brunch.

Local 188

You will find Andrew and I ponied up to the large bar at Local almost every Sunday. The service is great, the music is random and the food is SO good. Our top picks are the eggs benedict and the herb and mushroom scramble, along with a honey bomb of course. Open for brunch Saturday and Sunday 9am-1pm.


The best breakfast tacos in town, hands down! This laidback taco bar whips up not only breakfast tacos, but yogurt parfaits, Migas burritos and a super filling Bodega sandwich with house made sausage. They also have a refreshing golden juice and a full espresso bar. They open early and serve breakfast every day which is always a plus in my book. Serving breakfast 7 days a week 7am-11am.

Marcy’s Diner

A Portland staple. This is a no muss no fuss traditional diner. I always go for a classic eggs, hashbrowns and sausage. They have the best marble toast, so thick and crunchy. The muffins here are really good and the tunes are usually just what you want on a Sunday morning. Open Wednesday-Sunday 7am-1pm.

Hot Suppa

There will no doubt be a line out the door on any given day to eat here. There have been numerous articles that mention Hot Suppa and for good reason! This southern-style restaurant serves up a variety of eggs benedict, a delicious hash and crispy hashbrowns. They have great breakfast cocktails and coffees as well. Serving breakfast 7 days a week starting at 8am.


When I’m in the mood for a breakfast sandwich this is where I go. The Not So Traditional and Dutchmaster are always my picks. Andrew gets the breakfast burrito and then complains that it’s too much food…every…single…time. hahaha! Dutch’s also has some pretty great pastries, check their instagram to see what the donut or danish of the day might be. Oh and make it a combo, the hashbrowns are wicked good! Open Wedesday-Sunday 8am-2pm

Artemisia Cafe

Truly a hidden gem in Portland. They have absolutely amazing hashes, creative omelets and a really good huevos rancheros. They have plenty of vegetarian options and every dish comes with some delicious and fresh toasted bread. Saturday & Sunday 9am-1:30pm

Wilson County Barbeque

You may not think of a BBQ place when picking a place for breakfast but everything here is SO good. The breakfast sandwich on a biscuit with house made sausage is drool worthy. They have Southern classics, like chicken and waffles and biscuits and gravy as well. It’s a little off the beaten path too so you can usually get a seat with no problem. Saturday & Sunday 9am-3pm
