    Don't come here with if you're pregnant, need to work on your laptop while sitting on a padded seat. They'll harass you onto an uncomfortable wooden bench and try to ruin your afternoon.

    I know it costs more than a beer, but sometimes you just really need some nitro cold brew on a hot day. Get two, either to share or just to keep yourself happy. Get three or four. I AM NOT AN ADDICT.

    They serve Stumptown here and make it well. Cool space and they allow laptops in certain areas - free WiFi though. But $14 for a 12oz bag of Stumptown is a little steep when other places charge $12.
