The Portland State University Campus has its share of great food carts and fun cafes for coffee, tea and breakfast. I stumbled into this one just because it was only a block from my class and I wanted a cup of tea. They have all of their teas on a large key ring -- including 4 or 5 green tea... More

I come here to meet people for lunch or coffee, often to do business as well. Their bagel sandwiches are very good, as are their wraps, their salads, and their soups. Prices are a bit high for what you get. They bring in good pastries.

Great eats, really good lattes, and a comfortable ambiance for reading or meeting with friends. I came here a few times to study when I was visiting friends at PSU. The prices are also reasonable.

This is some of the best coffee in Portland. Food is good too and service is fast! It has a deli and bakery as well. It is very convenient to Portland State with easy access to public transportation and plenty of parking.

This breakfast and lunch place has great coffee (Illy coffee) drinks and excellent pastries. The place is a simple no-frills location that is often filled with Portland State University students and faculty studying, socializing or grabbing a bite to eat. The food is good, the decor is simple, and the service is friendly and fast. There is outdoor seating for... More
