I have always been such a huge brunch fan. My favorite brunch restaurant in Portland Maine is Bintliff’s. Bintliff’s has been in business in Portland for 18 years and is located on Portland St. Joe Catoggio has been the owner of Bintliff’s in Portland since December 2002. Nicole Neal has been the Head Chef since April of 2010. They have created a wonderful and delicious dining experience that anyone of all ages will enjoy!
Bintliff’s has a cozy, eclectic yet elegant style. The atmosphere is very warm and the employees are very friendly. The building itself is two stories, there are some tables on the first floor, but the majority of the tables and booths are on the second floor. When the weather gets warmer they open up their deck and patio. Just imagine, eating an absolutely scrumptious meal and sitting on the patio, on a beautiful summer day!
Bintliff’s is open seven days a week from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm. Whenever I have gone I try to get there early, right when they open because it gets very busy, very quickly. But even if you have to wait, it definitely is worth every minute and is not too long!
The menu features breakfast and lunch items including wide variety of French toast, waffles, pancakes, egg dishes, soup, sandwiches, wraps, salads and many more creative entrees. Working with local farms and businesses, Bintliff's has created fun dishes on a superbly delicious menu. Bintliff’s is proud serving their patrons lighter fare and grilled meats, fresh local seafood, and vegetarian delights. Bintliff’s serves local produce, seafood, 100% pure Maine maple syrup, locally made wines and Portland’s own Coffee By Design.
Some of the Local Purveyors Include:
Bartlett Maine Estate Winery
Coffee by Design Portland, ME
Crown O'Maine Organic Coop, ME
Grandy Oats, Brownfield, ME
Harbor Fish Market Portland, ME
Native Maine Produce Portland, ME
Strawberry Hills Farm Skowhegan, ME
Bintliffs is a true Maine Gem of a restaurant. It was voted BEST BRUNCH from 2002-2009 and then again in 2011 by the Portland Phoenix. The location is ideal, after a nice big brunch, take a walk through Deering Oaks Park, or walk around the Bay. You could even make a day of it, enjoy a yummy meal at Bintliffs and check out a Pirates or a Sea Dogs Game!
Is your mouth watering yet? Go check it out and maybe you will see me there too!!!
