Ok, this is totally weird. Cool weird. The red lights, eclectic tables and tablecloths, weird things everywhere. You definitely will get the experience you come looking for. The restroom is truly creepy - totally worth a trip! I was really impressed with it. We didn't...More

Definitely a hidden treasure - the house almost looks abandoned, with an overgrown yard and a sagging porch. Inside is mostly lit with string lights, eclectic interior, startling bathroom decor, and (vintage?) Art Deco wall paper. The tea was good. The desserts were fabulous. The...More

Oh my gosh, this is an unforgettable place! Our large group came for dessert. Thankfully, someone knew where to go because it wasn't exactly marked. It got busier and busier as the night went on. Quirky and eclectic old house. We sat at one of...More

Coffee, Tea, & one boatload of a banana split! This old house retrofitted into a low key, dim lit, dessert cafe is open late night and usually pretty busy, offering a self seating semi sort of nonchalant service characteristic of Portland. The menu consists of...More

Let me start of by saying that the waitstaff here was excellent. The service was a little slow, but our server made up for that with wit! The menu is simple: Coffees and Desserts. The "Ship Goes to Pieces Against a Rock" was delicious! It's...More
