Brunch can be quite the ordeal in Portland. Securing a spot in a diner on a weekend morning might necessitate the occasional passive-aggressive jab of the elbow. For that reason, it’s good to know your options, and Zell’s should definitely rank among them. Not particularly trendy, Zell’s is well lit and doesn’t reek too much of diner shtick. The weekly changing chalkboard specials a bit more exciting than the staples. The baked salmon Benedict ($10.25) is one of Zell’s classics, with well-poached eggs, a generous helping of salmon and thick hollandaise. Best of all are the complimentary scones to abate your crippling midmorning hunger.
