Reviews for Cafe Nell

Wow yet another wonderful brunch place in Portland! Not only were the food and pleasant service great but the bright lighting from the large windows and wall mirrors created a delightful ambiance for our meal. I thoroughly enjoyed the eggs Benedict and a couple bro-linis, which tbh I ordered partly because of the name. I can't stress enough how amazingly pleasant, personable, and genuine the servers were. I will be back!

Try’s to hard in timing of first seating and drinks and specials We asked questions on special and waiter paused to go get more information We were a party of 6 ordered a bottle of red and white wine Our waiter opened the white wine and it was room temperature at best The whole experience continued on same note Yes, there were positives but for price and hype. Disappointed!

Sometimes, for me, it's atmosphere that is a deciding factor in a restaurant experience. From my first exterior glimpse, a half block away, to everything about the interior, I was reminded of two of my favorite intimate spots in NYC, neither of which I've visited in almost 40 years. But the vibe here was so cozy and welcoming, the feeling came right back to me. Low light (but no problem reading the menu with my failing eyes), seating that was close but not uncomfortable, full review
