We have been using Dobra for years now for our regular everyday teas as well as our special occasion choices. Black teas, green teas and many varieties from around the world. Staff is well informed and knowledgeable about the products they sell. It's nice to have such a great resource. Big plus is that you can enjoy your tea there... More

On Sunday, January 8, 2017, the staff allowed a patron to change her baby's diaper--full of excrement--on a sofa in the middle of the PACKED main seating area. It was disgusting, particularly as the patron exhibited a heightened sense of entitlement for her actions. I reported the incident to the health department. I will not be going back. Soakology Tea...

I discovered Dobra while exploring the area near my hotel and I'm sure glad I did. What a lovely, calming space with outstanding teas and some very good food. Great service. I left each meal feeling satisfied and relaxed. I look forward to returning.

My wife and I stopped in on our last day in Portland and I am happy we did. The selection of teas are outstanding! They have tea from what seems like everywhere! The two employees were very helpful and I enjoyed talking to them. The pastries are fantastic as well. If I was a local this would be my Sunday... More

We stopped here to relax after a kind of a hot walk around the town. We weren't sure of a few things when we walked in, such as if we could seat ourselves or if we had to order at the counter first (it felt awkward to walk past the counter, where a staff member was gorging himself on something)....

This is one of the Tea places that I have ever been to. I am very difficult to please when it comes to tea as I am from Sri Lanka which grows tea and my palette is used to trying different types of tea. The beverages that we got at this place was absolutely amazing and nothing could go wrong.... More

A great place to chill out and relax while sipping on exotic tea. I chose Silver needle - a white tea recommended for morning. An easy drinking, slightly smoky astringent tea that allowed me to relax and recharge. There are also teas to take home with you. Inviting atmosphere and very laid back.

What a delight to happen into this lovely tea room! The menu is extremely extensive, and the atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxing. The staff are attentive, but give plenty of space. It's the kind of place you could sit for hours in, enjoying light fare and teas. I had a matcha bowl and some mochi - both were just... More

A cool, refreshing, relaxing and inviting refuge on a very hot summer afternoon. The tea choices were as much fun to read about as they were to enjoy, and the light snacks, in our case, cookies were delish!
