Cooked with Love: slow-cooked food in the heart of downtown Portland. Kid friendly and authentic cooking from mothers, signature dishes include pot roast, meat loaf, chicken and dumplings and crab cakes, as well as featured dishes from a different mother…read more
Excellent Food: This is an amazing place for breakfast and brunch! They don't accept reservations so you have to show up and loiter on the street while you wait which is never more than 20 minutes on busy weekends! It is fun to grab a cup of coffee and…read more
Great Breakfast: I went to read reviews this morning to see what people were giving great raves about for breakfast before going. I could not believe the bad ones. We have been there many times and it is slower with a big crowd of 12, but ALWAYS great…read more
Good Food: Mother's is good but I think they are a little overpriced. Their portions are not super big so you must be paying for something else? \r \r People say it's amazing so maybe I need to try it again but I'm not sure what everyone is talking…read more

Best Lunch In Portland........PERIOD: So, I'd been hankering for a meatball sub. I hadn't had one in years, but I was really wanting one. So I get one at a cart by work: fake cheese, cold meatballs, salty sauce on a mushy hot dog bun - inedible. Then Quiznos - yuck, Subway -…read more
Taking my business elsewhere: Recently went here for dinner and won't be returning. Food is mediocre at best. The primary (and only) seasoning appears to be salt, salt and more salt. Service was decent, but the food is terrible. An insult to mother's everywhere. read more
Be Nice or Leave: There is a sign on the wall, "Be Nice or Leave." The staff should sincerely take this to heart. Really bad service from start to finish. I had called ahead of time to ask about a table and was told it was ok to come in at 5 pm. They…read more
This is a cute and classy: This is a cute and classy establishment. The food is excellent and service is good. The decor is beautiful, vintage mirrors, chandeliers, lots of natural light. Brunch here is a must for anyone coming to/living in Portland.read more
Best food, alright staff...: Soooo... I love love love their food, I think it is over priced though... but there is nothing else really like it so I guess the price is worth it. The only negative thing I have to say is the staff seemed snobby, and put off that we were…read more
Great Food: Our family usually goes for Sunday brunch. The food is always excellent and I just adore the Wild Salmon Hash. The line can be a little long though but it's well worth the wait. read more

Oh Mother: This place is fantastic for breakfast. The lines are always very long on Sundays so be prepared to wait.Lattes are my main fix but the caramelized onion omelet is a second close. Prices are very reasonable and the service is hurried but…read more
