The morning Josh played at Concordia University, we stopped off on the Eastt-side of Portland (the whole city is divided up East and West of the River) and grabbed a quick breakfast at Pine State Biscuits. This friendly cafe had been highly recommended to us from several Oregonian friends.
The small cafe quickly brought me back to my West Texas roots as I smelt the buttermilk biscuits baking and saw that the menu included apple butter, a staple at my grandmother’s house. Some of their menu items include biscuit sandwiches with eggs and bacon, biscuits covered in sausage gravy, or a combination of both. Not to mention, they did also have fried chicken biscuits on their menu.
We listened to Ryan Adams, Easy Tiger, as we enjoyed our biscuits and each others company. You know it is a good restaurant if they play Ryan Adams, and especially my favorite album of his.
This is the type of place I would take visitors to if I lived in here, the Ruth’s Diner of Portland. Fluffy homemade biscuits is branding at its best and assures return visits in my book at least.
