broder café

Several months ago my friend Amy and I embarked upon a marathon treasure hunt that included hitting every thrift shop in NE and SE Portland. We stopped at Broder Café to refuel and I've been lusting for more of their fabulously simple Swedish cuisine.

When I finally was able to go back, I was not disappointed: I ordered a melted-to-perfection grilled cheese made with Swedish Farmers cheese and fresh tomatoes on the most delicious whole wheat and rye bread. It was served with their "breakfast salad," which included peas, bacon and gorgonzola cheese.

Todd ordered the Farmers sandwich, which was basically a warm ham and cheese sandwich served on a sweet sesame brioche bun. At our server's suggestion, he added a fried egg on top – oh, such goodness!

Next time my parents are in town, we may have to brave the crowds and bring them to this little gem in SE Clinton – I'm sure Broder's food will take them back to the four years we lived in Denmark!
