Good coffee, convenient location for those in SW Portland near Hillsdale, great pastries, convivial atmosphere, local crafts for sale. A good place for those who want to sit and talk with friends, and who want to avoid corporate coffee chains.

When people not from Portland think Portlandia is a proper representation they don't know that the show depicts a sort of east side hipster, young Portlander. It's caricatured, but with an element of truth! This little coffee shop is a purely local (SW-artsy,intelligentsia,cool,handmade,foodie) Portland place.

Its cozy, hip and not fast paced. Do not go if you need coffee quickly! Every time I am there the server is friendly and helpful(they have hemp milk!) But the other patrons are drifting in and out and will begin a conversation while paying which will add time to your wait. Or they will distractedly take forever to decide and ask a hundred questions or they will simply not notice you and let the font door shut in your face. (Yes, all have happened to me there) The patrons are there to relax and hang out.

There are gift items and art things on the wall. Take a look to see what this neighborhood is like. Have a gluten free pastry. The coffee is good. Get a taste of what local SW Portlanders do at this very local place. Relax.
