Best Breakfast/Brunch in Portland Maine

My husband and I had the opportunity to eat at the Porthole for the second time a weekend or two ago. We had the crab benedict, and the beef hash. Well, my husband had the beef hash and he gave me a bite and so I needed to order myself a new plate as it was so incredibly flavorful and outstanding. They do use local beef and in fact, they do concentrate on local when they can. The first time we went, which was when I first moved here, I don't recall it as memorable. I'm not sure if I just don't remember, or I was all nerves moving up to a new place, or maybe it's changed ownership. But whatever, I'm thinking it might have surpassed the Bayou Kitchen as our most favorite place to have breakfast.

We love the Bayou Kitchen though, although they are remodeling and have been closed for a time. I can't wait for when they open - I love their rice and beans so much, I usually order two servings. So yummy.

We initially thought that our favorite brunch was going to be Hot Suppa and for sure they make a great breakfast, but it's always busy and the wait can be long to get a table.

We've also had brunch at Petite Jacqueline - I actually had the cheeseburger which was amazingly yummy, but my espresso was cold and that was a bummer.

Do you folks have any other suggestions for an amazing brunch or breakfast place?
