Nice coffee shop with an excellent selection of tea, coffee and pastries. It may take a little longer, but the quality is superb.

I enjoyed the vibe there as it was not frenetic and crowded like Starbucks. But I wasn't cray about the coffee. The original menu looked enticing but we had voodoo donuts already waiting. The coffee may be just be some special organic roast or something as it did taste kind of earthy to me. But it just wasn't what I... More

This is a place for those who really enjoy premium coffee... They do all the things that coffee lovers like (e.g. pour overs, etc). Cups/portions are not large. This is not an economy coffee house.

I stopped twice on my recent trip. Both times the coffee and the pastery I got were awesome. They made a heart in my cappucino.

This coffee shop is worth a visit. Their coffee is so delicious - you will not be disappointed by their espresso drinks. And their pastries are buttery, flaky - so delicious. You will become addicted.

Not a Starbucks fan, so I was happy to find a local coffee house. The people behind the counter were just plain rude. The espresso was actually good. The Americano could have been hotter. We won't be back. There are plenty of other options in Downtown Portland who would love our business.

Stopped in for a quiet break and a quick fix. Had a cold brew that had a very smooth coffee flavor with a hint of the bitter bean. Delicious. Others in the shop seemed to enjoy the traditional coffee options. As quoted on the wall there, "Coffee should be an experience not just a routine".

As good as it is pretty. Loved my coffee and buckwheat figgy scone. Conveniently located across from the lackluster breakfast choices in my hotel. So far so good Portland!
