2239 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 503-234-4790, jamonhawthorne.com. Breakfast daily.

The lines may be long, but the wait is worth it. Serving solid brunch classics, Jam's go-to meal is the two-egg breakfast ($7), a couple mimosas, and full immersion into a Sex in the City gal brunch fantasy. Those who aren't pretending can sip in peace as kids busy themselves at the central play area. $.
