We ate breakfast here the morning after the worst snow storm in Portland in 10 years. Despite the snow, the place became pretty busy. For three of us, a full breakfast with coffee came to $33 before tip.

Just had lunch at Zell's; New Orleans style oysters. A terrific meal. Mixed vegetables were tasty. The oysters were steaming and slightly spicy. I'll be back.

I LOVE Zells! My favorite is the salmon Benedict which is to die for! The fresh squeezed orange juice is the best in town. As soon as you sit down, they bring you some small biscuits and jam which tide you over until your meal arrives. Go early or expect a wait on Saturday or Sunday mornings.

What a wonderful restaurant. The scones are dynamite, the seasonal specials featruing local ingredients are interesting and well-prepared. (I particularly favor the hang-town omelet and seasonal mushroom entries when available.) Excellent food, endless excellent coffee, nice surroundings, helpful and attentive wait staff, great value. A delightful place to have breakfast or brunch.

Food was good. Water glass was filled. Then when glass was empty and busboy/waiter came around I asked for more water. He yanked the silverware and muttered something under his breath but ignored my request. After several minutes as a waitress passed by with a pitcher of water, I asked her for water. Drank the water, and then she and another waitress came by asking if I needed more water. The whole thing was just weird.
