|The Tin Shed is a comfortable spot with worn furniture and cheery decorations. The self-serve coffee bar (seen at the left of the photo) contains mismatched mugs with lots of character - I chose a Christmas one!|
|The Everything Nice plate: House-baked, sweet potato french toast, fruit, scrambled eggs, potato cake and thick cut bacon|
Helser's on Alberta, our final meal in Portland (if you don't count the box of Voodoo Doughnuts we brought on the plane!).
|Helser's interior is bright and lined with large, open windows. There was not much of a crowd at 7:30 a.m. Monday morning.|
|Diana ordered the Pear and Havarti Pie: Bartlett pears and havarti cheese baked in an eggy custard and served with Diana's ultimate fave: crumpets!|
|Diana said this crumpet does not beat the one she had from The Crumpet Shop, but maybe some homemade jam and cream cheese might have remedied its shortfalls a little bit.|
Two breakfasts might have potentially been overkill, but we call it a perfect way to bid adieu to one of my new favorite west coast cities!
