Restaurant: Oui Presse, Portland
Recommended by: Ken Forkish of Ken's Artisan Bakery and Ken's Artisan Pizza
"A thick slice of country bread, toasted, slathered with good butter and jam" in flavors like Oregon marionberry and strawberry "satisfies that midmorning, didn't-have-breakfast, need-something-good-with-coffee urge," says Forkish. $; 1740 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.
