[EAT][TRAVEL] Portland, OR Day 1

We started our first day in rainy Portland - the bike city. A lovely drizzle greeted us as soon as we stepped out of PDX. Ravenous and famished after missing our early morning flight - first stop was Broder - a Swedish restaurant for breakfast.

The weather was getting really beautiful after the early morning drizzle. The drive from PDX to the cafe was lovely - lush greenery all around. The place was packed - but the wait was worth it.I had read a lot about Broder and its yuminess ( I rate their food very high, possibly one of my fav eateries so far in the US)

Their Danish pancakes, baked eggs, Swedish Meatballs and Vegeterian Pyatt  were absolutely yummy. Great atmosphere, nice and warm on a cold rainy day.

Our bellies full, we explored the vicinity. I love Portland - for its bicycles and its "bike boulevards".

I can smell the rain in that first picture.
And sure Portland looks like a nice place to visit.
