    The coffee at Bard was honestly as good if not better than my favorite shops in Seattle or Brooklyn. The space is large and nice and bright and has plenty of seating. The staff is super friendly

    Serious coffee place with trained baristas and great selection of pour over coffee. They primarily use Kalita Wave for pour over which creates a very pleasant, smooth coffee. Highly recommended.

    Coffee's great, pastries are good, and staff is very welcoming. A good start to your day. Sit at the communal table if you need to get some work done, the free wifi is pretty good.

    Extreme care with pour over and precision with 'espresso. I had an amazing macchiato.. The fluorescent lights leave a little to be desired, but the coffee makes up for the light!

    Solid coffee. Huge mugs. Good place to bring your laptop and work. And one of the few coffee shops with wifi in Portland

    Spacious coffee shop! I'd definitely recommend the cold brew... or if you need an extra boost, try the nitro!

    Order a Vietnamese - espresso with condensed milk. Tastes wonderfully like burned sugar lollipops.

    Probably the most artfully pulled espresso in the city. Try the Iced Americano. You'll be glad you did.

    They pull the best espresso in town - and could easily battle for the best on the east coast. After your shot, try a Cap or a Latte. Zoom! Read more
