Unfortunately, a great example of horribly arrogant coffee attitudes not backed up by either quality or skill. A dry cappuccino was basically a latte. Hot cider was ok. Attractive interior but not inviting much like the service.

From the wonderful and very cool young lady manager, to the fabulous small batch organic coffee and early morning snacks, you cannot find a more relaxing place to have your morning coffee. A must stop in downtown Portland! Enjoy

Very cool place with excellent coffee. We stopped here twice in one day while in Portland! Do yourself a favor and get an iced chai with a shot of espresso. So good!! We even got some beans to take home.

I got a nitro cold brew, and it was delicious! (The only thing I wish they had were coffee ice cubes - love when places do that, especially when it gets hot out.)
