I tried out Junior's Cafe today with a friend. We wanted to go somewhere near her SE Hawthorne condo, and we were browsing through my brand-new, 2009-2010 Chinook Book and found a great 2-for-1 coupon for Junior's, located on 12th, just two blocks south of Hawthorne. Their coupon advertised the "best vegan scramble in Portland", so I figured it was worth a try.
It did not disappoint. The restaurant is cute, with about nine tables and booth seating available in a small interior that has funky decor and paintings of famous actors on the wall (Patrick Swayze, Chuck Norris, and Steven Segal were just a few). We both had breakfast dishes, even though it was 1 p.m. My dining partner tried a regular 'ole egg scramble, called the Pans, while I had the Superhero Tofu scramble, which came with spinach, tomato, onion, and potatoes and toast on the side. The tofu was delicious. It actually almost tasted like eggs, which makes me wonder if the chef added nutritional yeast to it to give it a richer flavor. I gobbled up the meal rather quickly, and, because of the coupon, our total bill came to only $8.50. Not too shabby.
