he Daisy Cafe is, according to owners Johnny and Kristina Nunn, a “love letter to old Portland breakfast”—which is to say it’s a bright, friendly café cheerfully slinging the least adventurous, most dialed-in breakfast in the King neighborhood. With a focus on traditional presentations of house-prepared meat (pork sausage, smoked pit ham) and baked goods (biscuits, brioche), expertly cooked eggs, and the crispety-crunchiest fried potatoes the world has ever known, Daisy Cafe is proudly vanilla—or maybe maple. The most out-of-the-box item on the menu, a coffee-cake-crusted French toast, is the kind of subtly ingenious quarter-turn twist on a classic that reminds you that a pretty damn smart chef is poaching eggs in the kitchen. Drinks are equally classic: spritzes, mimosas, and a bevy of Bloodies, making even a weekday morning a party.
