Breakfast on the Bridges is every Friday morning in June

Breakfast on the Bridges is a proud Portland tradition. It’s been happening for about 16 years and shows no signs of running out of steam — or should I say cream. As in, cream for your coffee.

Coffee is just one of the free treats you can find on the Steel, Tillikum and Hawthorne bridges on the last Friday of every month between 7:00 and 9:00 am. But during Pedalpalooza in the month of June those reliably wonderful Shift volunteers can be found every Friday morning.

This morning our photographer Eric Thornburg caught some of the action on the Tillikum where hot and fresh berry pancakes, muffins, coffee, and smiles were being served to anyone who walked or rolled by.

Breakfast on the Bridges is one more reason to bike to work. And just one more thing that makes Portland — especially during Pedalpalooza — such a fun place to be. So mark your calendars for June 14th, 21st, and 28th. And leave a few minutes early to make sure you have time to stop, snack, drink, and chat.

I wish the Hawthorne volunteers could set up a little earlier! I crossed at 7:05 AM the last two Fridays and haven’t seen anyone. Too bad I have to be at work in Tigard by 8!

I might add that Trailhead coffee has been donating to the Hawthorne Breakfast on the bridges for almost 5 years. Give them some thanks/love by picking up their coffee. Hawthorne BonB will also be making pancakes and fresh espresso this Friday.

oooh… this may be worth traveling much further south than necessary just to score those pancakes 🙂
