This is a quiet, cool, appropriate place to focus and work...big tables, nice lamps...great environ. Unfortunately, in a town of amazing coffee, these guys come up way short...mediocre at best (and not worth the price compared to other places) with service decidingly lacking. Again, if we were in Lakeview, OR or Nebraska maybe it would be worth it but in... More

Just walked here after dinner. It seemed like it was in a neighborhood/on the edge of one...but i could be wrong because it was dark when we arrived. We did walk through a neighborhood to get there and this was on the corner of the circle. The neighborhood was charming and beautiful though. We came for desserts, and we're not... More

Expensive, but tasty treats and tea. (A cup of loose leaf tea cost me 4.25, which is higher than most places in Portland.) My peanut butter pie pushed the bill over ten dollars. The cafe has a lot of appealing nooks and crannies, but maybe because of the lack of sound absorbing surfaces, I can hear clearly someone's conversation on... More

This is my fourth time to Palio. The menu is small but it rotates around freshness. The service is fast professional with comfortable warmth. Their desserts are over the top good!. It was hard to resist the multilayer cakes I choose a berry pie. Best crust ever ! it's crust crispness lasted to the last bite flaky layers. The berries... More

My wife and I were walking through Ladd's Addition enjoying one of Portland's best family neighborhoods when we came to the Palio, it was an oasis in a paradise. A look inside and we were hooked, fresh & delicious looking pastries and an aroma of fresh ground coffee inside a cozy space. The staff were very friendly and we felt... More

I am a coffee lover and I am always trying to find local gems in the city. This is one of a kind, and up to now one of my favorite places in SE. Coffee is good, food is good, desserts are to DIE FOR! It is a bit over priced but it is worth it.

Spent a few hours at Palio Coffee House yesterday. The cafe is an 'alternative milk' haven of delight. They do not just have soy; they do not just have almond...they have it all, even hemp. I ordered a black and white mocha with hemp milk! Delicious... so why not 5 stars? Not sure. I ordered the vegetable quiche, it was... More

Tucked into a residential neighborhood on a quiet street sits this gem of a coffe house. Tiffany-style lamps, comfortable seating, complimentary wiFi with purchase and good eats and drinks. I'm a writer and was looking for a place to hole up for a while where I wouldn't feel ai'd outstayed my welcome. This place was perfect. I had a simple... More

Wonderful place to come with a book or some work. Cozy interior, great music. Frequented by locals; barista seems to know everyone who comes in. The blackberry cobbler alone is worth the visit.
