    If we can actually manage to order a coffee (so hard to know what to get with a slew of brewing options ranging from aeropress to French press), the coffee (beans by Stumptown Roasters) is crazy good. Read more

    When you order a cortardo, make sure they don't think you said frittata. There's no latte art on those.

    After you place your order, walk through the red door in the back for the spacious garden. A great summertime place for breakfast and a book.

    If you have your own hotspot and it is nice outside, the outdoor area is great for working. Otherwise, the lack of public wifi and limited indoor seating mean you should find another spot.
