Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day… and that brunch is the coolest meal of the day, which is sort of the same thing. So don’t spend too much time wondering when “breakfast” officially becomes “brunch” on an empty stomach.

You can head to CityWalk® and decide after you’ve chowed down at one of these popular early-eating options, from casual dining to grabbing quick service on your way to your next adventure.

Voodoo Doughnut

“The magic is in the hole” at Voodoo Doughnut, a local favorite from Portland, Oregon and the newest eatery at CityWalk. When sudden hunger pangs hit, they know just what will hit the spot. Is your breakfast not complete without bacon? Sink your teeth into their world famous Bacon Maple Bar. In the mood for cereal? Voodoo Doughnut has you covered (or should I say, they have their doughnuts covered) with Captain My Captain, The Loop, and the No Name doughnuts. There’s also vegan variations of some of their most popular items! Each doughnut pairs perfectly with Portland’s own Stumptown Coffee, roasted daily and available only at our Voodoo Doughnut location! We recommend the Nitro Cold Brew to give you that extra boost before you head into the Park.

Samba Brazilian Steakhouse

If you’ve ever been to a Brazilian steakhouse, you know the true meaning of the phrase, “all-you-can-eat.” Sundays from 11am to 3pm, Samba has an All-You-Can-Eat Meat + Salad Bar and a Hot Bar full of savory sides, where carvers come by to offer you cuts of beef, fish, and more. Vegetarians can go green with a straight salad bar option, but everyone can agree that bottomless champagne, sangria, and mimosas will hit the spot… repeatedly!

Hard Rock Cafe
