The food and atmosphere was great with live music in the background. The mexican mocha taste like it was from starbuck and the fudge brownie was just perfect. The bathroom was another story. They did such a good job on the decoration. It was a little creepy. I was scared to walk in because the light was very dim with... More

Very unique and different experience. The dessert was awesome. The Mexican Mocha was amazing! And the musician was very lovely and kind. Never experienced a place that made me feel so many different things at once. Can't really explain it... you will have to go to experience it yourself . We took our 3 boys ages, 16,15 and 12. Went...

I love this place! We make it our go-to place for incredibly good coffee and very tasty desserts whenever we're out and about in Portland later in the evening. The waitstaff is wonderful - friendly, helpful and ready with coffee refills. Last night we had the warmed apple crisp with vanilla bean ice cream, topped with whipped cream and fresh... More

Being a classically-trained musician, I mostly went here because I thought the name was funny. I didn't know what to expect, but it was definitely an experience! Food: I had a cappuccino, and my husband had an iced latte. Both were some of the best we'd ever tasted. I'd originally wanted to try the orange cappuccino, but the waitress said... More

Feelings of unease and comfort can rarely occupy the same space. When they do, it may feel a lot like what Rimsky has to offer. Dark, yet warm. Atmospheric yet disconnected. Cramped, without once producing feelings of claustrophobia. From the outside, it takes the appearance of an aging house, that presumably was built long ago, but smacks of having an... More

An old house that's been converted into a coffee and desserts cafe that really laid back and the epitome of hipster. There are musicians occasionally and the desserts are great! Everyone goes to see the bathroom though as its both creepy and fascinating.

I found this amazing place on a blog and am so glad we checked it out on our last day in Portland. There's no sign on the door, but walk in, grab a table, and listen to live music. The help is corky and very hardworking. I tried the raspberry fool and it was AMAZING! I have no idea what... More

You're definitely in a different place and time when you enter this anonymous dessert house. Great place to hang-out for late night coffee and dessert. I enjoy the mochas and delicious cobblers. As the name suggests, you will hear musicians perform classical music. Tip them well. Certain tables may surprise you, as well as the bathroom upstairs. Only cash and... More

Wanted to stop by after reading about a classical themed cafe. It's open 7pm-12am most days, and was the perfect place to wind down after running around portland. They have a variety of coffee and teas, as well as desserts. I had a pot of peppermint tea and the raspberry chocolate fool. Prices are great, and service was excellent. Sadly... More
