Though there are many amazing places in Portland, Slappy Cakes was one of my favorite takeaways. This breakfast/brunch location gives the stamp of approval to play with your food.
Slappy Cakes has griddles built directly into the tabletops and provides a delicious variety of pancake batters, mix-ins, fresh-squeezed juices and fizzies to awaken your inner child (you, of course, can also bring your children). And if you don't feel like cooking it yourself, they'll do it for you.
The space has a modern-meets-industrial with a throwback to the '50s diner sort of feel. White walls with accents of grays, metal and natural wood provide the backdrop for energizing pops of orange in the light fixtures and upholstery.
