Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner. If you live in Portland and you haven't been to Mother's, go immediately. The food is comfort food from every imaginable cuisine, and the menu will be different every time you go. Have chicken and dumplings on one trip, and on the next one try a curry from southeast asia. These are the foods your mother used to make you, no matter where in the world you're from. The breakfast specials come highly recommended. If you happen to be there when they're serving Pumpkin Pancakes, you're in for a nearly religious breakfast experience. Be sure to make reservations on the weekends though, or be prepared to wait an hour for a table. The bar is also a great choice for a more intimate meal.
