Hilltop may not have the best coffee in Portland or the best selection of food items, but it does have a friendly vibe and cozy atmosphere that makes it a special place to hang out at in Portland. The excellent Wi-Fi connection and ample seating makes Hilltop one of my favorite places to enjoy an afternoon on Munjoy Hill.

The coffee is great and the atmosphere very welcoming and comfortable with friendly service. It's a fun gathering space for Munjoy Hill's eclectic neighbors.

Hilltop Coffee has wonderful tasty coffee blends. Their baked goods are delicious, however, their breakfast sandwiches are made ahead of time and sit in a warming tray all morning which makes them kind of soggy. They should be made to order and be served at least until noon. Heaven forbid if you try to order one at 10:31am. They stop... More
