HunnyMilk is the best brunch/breakfast I’ve ever had in Portland, Oregon. I never thought I would find a breakfast I liked more in Portland than the Screen Door. And I’ve tried a lot of places. I get to eat out a lot because of my job and it is rare that a restaurant totally blows me away, but that is exactly what HunnyMilk did. HunnyMilk is phenomenal and I simply cannot say enough good things about it.
Update: I now have bad things to say about Hunnymilk. The wait times are absolutely insane and u reasonable. We are talking over two hours to eat here. If they are this busy, go somewhere else.
HunnyMilk serves brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 2pm inside of another restaurant, La Buca: 40 NE 28th Ave, Portland, Oregon.
Update: They now have two more locations including a west side location at 1981 W Burnside Street. And another east side location at 40 NE 28th Avenue.
It is one flat price to eat here. For $20 you get: 1 drink + 1 savory dish + 1 sweet dish. They do have a few side items that you can order like the peanut butter monkey bread with chocolate custard for $4 pictured above. They also have one kid meal option for $8 that all three of my kids refused to order, because it didn’t sounded like a small meal to them and not as tasty as the other options. I can say it irked me a little to pay $20 per kid, but it really was outstanding.
Sweet and Savory Selections
A sweet gingerbread waffle dipped in honey butter with malted milk mousse, brûléed bananas and cocoa drizzle and a savory chorizo quesadilla with red bells and pepper jack scramble, re-fried bean fritter, sour cream and sun dried tomato.
This is a sweet vanilla bean crepe with lemon-orange curd, whipped ricotta cream, almond shortbread and astronaut strawberries and a savory crispy pork ribs with cheesy garlic grits, soft egg, avocado and chimichurri sauce.
This is a savory open face croissant-donut sammy with sunny egg, thick bacon, sharp cheddar and spicy maple and a sweet whiskey caramel apple churro with brown butter-sage ice cream and bacon crumbles. The churro was amazing, but the croissant-donut a little too weird for us. All three of my kids ordered this. Next time I think I will split one of these with Jonah. It was too much food for him.
This is a savory crispy pork ribs with cheesy garlic grits, soft egg, avocado and chimichurri sauce. The sweet shown is a gingerbread waffle dipped in honey butter with malted milk mousse, brûléed bananas and cocoa drizzle. The ribs were unbelievably good and the waffle the best I’ve ever had.
All three of my kids ordered the caramel hot chocolate with toasted milk marshmallows. Here is Jonah enjoying his hot chocolate while we play a game of chess. They have a lot of games you can play including an old school Nintendo. They also have a handful of books for kids to read including a unicorn book.
