I changed my mind about going to The Roxy; just couldn’t face the thought of surly waitstaff this morning. Instead, we went to The Overlook Restaurant at 1332 N Skidmore Street in North Portland just west of I5 and just north of the Fremont Bridge. Portland Citysearch has it listed as a Greek restaurant; but it didn’t seem like it to me. It is pretty much a basic diner and deserves maybe 2 1/2 stars. The waitstaff were very pleasant (a big plus), but we didn’t get any more coffee once they figured we had finished breakfast.
I had a waffle and bacon; pretty basic stuff. All-in-all not a special restaurant for comemerating (sp?) the first posting in over a year and a half.
We have gone past this place a few times in our jaunts to North Portland and St. Johns. Carla and I saw it again last weekend when we were headed to the Polish Festival which is held next to Kaiser hospital the last weekend of September.
I got a little micro SD card for my phone and spent most of the time at breakfast trying to figure out how to get my pictures to the card so I could then get them to my computer and post to the blog. Finally, I got a picture of the restaurant sign, which is what originally interested me and made me move it to the top of my list.
