Plank Town, Springfield OR

Saturday and Sunday, Plank Town Brewing Company has brunch from 9 am to 3 pm.  Above is fried egg and their homefries.  

Plank Town is located on Main Street in downtown Springfield.  Springfield has more locally owned breakfast places than their big sister community Eugene.  My guess is that the chains have squeezed out many of the mom-n-pop restaurants in Eugene.  Not so in Springfield.  My other guess is that a lot of people from Eugene come to Springfield for breakfast.

Brunch Dishes

Biscuits and Bacon Gravy:

There are not too many places that have biscuits and bacon gravy.  Usually sausage gravy rules.  The biscuits here are not ordinary; these biscuits are baked with cheddar and chives in the dough.  I love when a restaurant does it different.

Quiche of the Day:

This dish, according to my memory, was an onion quiche with basil leaves.  Look at those crisp homefries.

Plank Town Breakfast:

Eggs your way with choice of meat and bread with homefries.  In Oregon, the primary choice for breakfast meat is thick applewood-smoked bacon.  Love the bacon in Oregon, always cooked perfectly crisp.  Choice of bread here was the cheddar-chive biscuit.

Applewood-Smoked Ham Hash:

This dish is their leadoff on the brunch menu: applewood-smoked ham with potatoes, mushrooms, onions, and kale, topped with two eggs and an Irish cheddar sauce.  I don't know what the kale does for it, but this is a great tasting dish for breakfast.  The bread choice here is a marble rye.

Lunch Dishes

Main Street Burger:

Their hamburger is a half pound of ground beef served with house-made thousand-island dressing and Swiss cheese.

Mushroom Dip Sandwich:

The sandwich on this plate is mushroom dip: sautéed mushrooms and onions with roasted peppers and garlic, baby kale, and swiss cheese on a ciabatta.  The beer cheese is for dipping.  There are five other sandwiches on their menu.  On my bucket list are the smoked tri-tip sandwich and the apple and pork dip sandwich.

Brunch Menu

Three items on my bucket list are the Monte Cristo, Chilaquiles, and Smoked Steelhead Eggs Benedict.
