Simpatica Dining Hall - Best Breakfast in the Country?

add to kirtsy

Okay, so I don't read men's magazines very often. Although I did explore the website of Details when I received this link via email and I think it is a male version of Cosmo. Lots of talk about style and sex and apparently, food. They compiled a list of best breakfasts in the country, which does seem like a rather useful article. Portland's own Simpatica Dining Hall made it on the list.

I've never eaten at Simpatica Dining Hall. It's on my list, but haven't been there yet. Have you eaten breakfast there? What's your take? Is it the best?
The March issue of Details is on newstands this week.

No, because I can't stand to wait. It's breakfast. That means I'm hungry and grumpy. Two times I tried to go after 1:30pm and it was still an hour wait.

Some will say "Go before 9:30! There's no line." Yeah, if I'm up by 9:30 - I'm at work.

However, I do want to try it someday. I'll probably have to take a patient friend and a book.

I've been there, and it was fantastic. It's true about the lines, though. They open at 9 and are full by 9:15. I'm the opposite of ladyconcierge in that I get up early and by 1:30 I'm out on a hike or something.

I like restaurants for a lot of reasons, but going strictly on food -- taste, preparation, ingredients -- it may be the best I've had. And I've had a LOT, since I'm writing a book on the subject.
