If you're looking for a different experience but still want a good dessert or coffee, this is the place to go. It's a hipster hotspot for sure. Your experience might be a little inconsistent as a result. We had great service and great desserts when we went. The live piano music was great. Make **sure** you make a visit to... More

We visited Rimsky's at the recommendation of a friend and found the entire experience strange. First, it is very difficult to find. No sign, nothing to indicate it was anything but a dark, run- down old house. We arrived a bit after 7:00 on a week night and found one other couple on the porch, rattling the door. As we... More

So, first of all, an admission: I don't like coffee. Please put the knives away, it just means more for the rest of you, after all. But I do like Rimsky's: their tea, hot chocolate, and other beverages are quite good, and their desserts are great. I wouldn't say they're the best I've ever had anywhere, but they're really, really... More

Great date night out! Relaxing live guitar music, fun quirkyness, and good desserts. Highly recommended for an off the beaten path calmer nightlife

A nice place to meet a few friends. The live music, delicious desserts, and fun atmosphere makes this one of a kind. Don't miss it - there's no indication it's anything other than an old house along SE 12th except for the neon "open" sign in the window. And don't expect fast food - either in taste or time. If...

Shocking how terrible the service was at this place!! The waitress was verbally rude to our table of five. I asked her if there was any specials we shouldn't miss and she make a face at me and said "well, I haven't tried everything." When she brought the coffee out to us she reached over me and dumped a spoon... More

The marrionberry cobbler was phenomenal and the black current tea refreshing. Had the table that changes height, and the odd upstairs makes it a safe bet to throw first visitors for a loopy adventure.

This is one of the first places I visited in Portland and I still love it today. Set in an old house (Portland style), the place almost always boasts some sort of live music and always wonderful desserts and coffee. Thrift store chairs and eclectic tables and furniture make it feel like you've invited a bunch of friends over for... More

Stopped by here after theatre on Saturday about 10:30 and could hardly find a table. This is a very ecclectic old house decorated for Halloween right now and it was so popular that people were still arriving in a constant stream. The food looked good, but I didn't have a dessert. I just had tea but my friends said the... More

We were to Rimsky's after a great dinner at the Screen Door. Ordered Raspberry Fool and two cappuccinos, which were delightful and delicious. Didn't stay for any music, but enjoyed our stay. The coffee house had a quaint Victorian vibe, but the bathroom's creepy and i couldn't get past the door, although I took several pictures. Without giving anything away,... More
