Alameda Cafe – April 15, 2006



It’s best to live with no regrets; but I have a small one after dining at the Alameda Cafe. I wish I would have had one of the signature dishes rather than standard eggs, potatoes, bacon and toast. I had bacon on my mind as we drove to the east side of town. As I perused the menu I saw many tempting items, but if I wanted bacon, the sure bet was the “Power Breakfast” 2 eggs over medium (runny yolks/firm whites), bacon, rye toast and potatoes. A small bug; the toast and bacon were both a tad overdone.

Service was exquisite! Shelley (I got her name wrong earlier) is a management consultant who drives things on the weekends when the owner is out. She saw us come in with the camera, and immediately offered to take our picture. So, we finally get a picture for the blog with all 4 of us. The wait staff were attentive; coffee cups were continually filled with hot tasty java. It wasn’t crazy busy, so we got to hang out for a while and shoot the breeze.

We also got a rare picture of all 4 of us at the table where you can get a glimpse of our meals (that’s me [Bake] in the green shirt). I sure hope those guys behind A.H. aren’t in the witness protection program!

On the way home we drove by a couple of future possibilities, so A.H. and I will probably be all about trying to beat each other out in the next few weeks. I bet we’ll have a few visits to NE PDX in the next month or two.

What a nice breakfast place. Definitely 4 stars and probably would have been 5 if I had something else. It’ll probably be a while until I have the standard eggs and bacon breakfast.
