Beeswing’s blond wood tables and booths are crowded with neighborhood families meeting up for brunch, each with a couple of toddlers and a few mimosas and micheladas in hand. Packed to the gills with house-baked, smoked, and roasted comfort, this place is as cozy as your own kitchen table—if you don’t mind happy kid shrieks soundtracking your refills of Stumptown. Try the crowd-pleasing sourdough waffle, a perfectly griddled Belgian liege-style checkerboard of tart, yeasty goodness, slathered with butter and a chunky berry compote (or sometimes caramelized apples). A generous drizzle of maple syrup balances the bright berry notes for bite after bite of morning goodness. And it’s only $8.
