Brunch in Portland is quite the event. There are SO many tried and true brunch favorites in town. I always am looking to try the newest brunch menus, but that comes at a cost…waiting in line. Trust me when I say D is reluctant (at best) to wait in line for breakfast. It’s never an easy sell. SO when I was invited to try Circa 33’s new brunch menu– I was so excited. What was EVEN more exciting- when I headed back 2 weeks later. Amazing brunch my friends..with little wait. Dream come true.

Circa 33

I had never been to Circa 33 before, only heard about the amazing bar program. I wasn’t disappointed when we headed over for brunch. The cocktails were on point. I also loved the speakeasy vibes. (there is a secret room behind the bookcase- no joke!). The menu had classic brunch dishes with a Pacific Northwest twist. Everything we tried was fresh, light (hard to do with eggs benedict!), and SO flavorful.

The bloody mary was AMAZING. I consider myself a bloody mary aficionado and this one passed my test. Are you seeing that delicious bacon? Don’t miss the Mimosa or the Circa Pimm’s Cup!



[one_half_last][/one_half_last] Dear lorrrrd the Vegetarian Biscuits and Gravy were outstanding. While I love a good sausage gravy, the mushroom gravy was fantastic. Don’t miss out on the Circa Benedict or the Seasonal Breakfast Sandwich. Truthfully, I saw other people who had different menu items- there are no wrong choices.

There you have it- an amazing Portland brunch spot and hopefully little to no wait. If you are like me and brunch is a must on the weekend, check out Circa 33 for brunch. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks to Circa 33 for hosting us- We will be back again!
