Part coffee shop, art gallery, internet café, and all-ages music venue, it's a chill hangout space that could only exist in Portland. The Thermals love it for the awesome vibe & good people.
One of the only good venues in Portland to see music for under-21 crowd
don't pee on the seat in the bathroom
Hang out at backspace. Buy something vegan, or buy a Viso. Look awesome with your laptop/netbook.
have an Americano.
Impressed by the entirely vegetarian menu!
get an organic carrot cupcake (the carrot is a carrot!)
Lots o great shows .. Usually all ages!
Essential PDX Wifi and coffee spot.
Still have good veggie options but they also have real meat now, so be careful when ordering "turkey"
See those cookie next to the checkout... Grab one, you won't be disappointed!
Vegan club sandwich has no meat but is a hefty meal all the same. What a sandwich!
find the barrista with the encyclopedia knowledge of beer and ask him to recommend something in a bottle.
They've got poetry slams and great coffee.
On Thursdays they get a pastry that is amazing. Wish I knew the name but can always grab it by sight.
Although the Philly "steak" and cheese bears only a faint familial resemblance to its meaty cousin, it is still quite yummy and satisfying in its own right.
This cake is a lie.
Get some Pieku pie at backspace....it's delicious!!!
Great place to stock up on Viso!
he vegan mac n' cheese will knock your socks right off
Great internet cafe. Good shows and food too!
Portland Poetry Slam every Sunday! Awesome!
Good coffee and tea, but my god, that's a lot of homeless people and slackers o_0
It's all about the blue couches lazy afternoons filled with cold press sammiches nothing better to do than reading.
The grilled cheese tomato soup combo is deliriously good
Best coffee since I've moved to Portland. They even remembered me after just the 2nd time I visited. Soy latte is A+
The best treat on a Thursday is the trailmix bar.

They are no longer serving food from the kitchen.
If you need an extremely strong pick-me-up, try the Guayake Yerba Matte canned drinks. The mint flavor is the best and they'll hit you like a carafe of coffee.
Trumer Pils, real great Austrian beer.

The green & gold sammich is killer diller!
Internet is malfunctioning
Check out the prints & merch area! All kids of local art, books, your favorite band's gear...
Do yourself a favor. Skip this place. The attitude is they are all that. There was only one other customer there.
$3 min credit card, coffee is only a buck fifty so be prepared.
The coffee isn't my favorite. Perhaps try a beer or coffee, starting at $4.
Loose leaf tea. Nuff said :D
Hemp milk latte
If you like mochas, you have to try the chocolate here. So good.
Best. Place. Ever.
Play the new pinball table; World Cup Soccer, and score a goal!
