    Generic coffee in US is a huge cup of coffee flavored water but it's not the case here. Herr you can try really delicious coffee. Forget about milky ones - try drip, pour over, cold brew or espresso!

    their iced green tea tastes a lot like water. I understand the pies aren't fresh but my chicken pot pie was warmed in a microwave (not even a toaster oven) and I could've done that at home

    This and Grape + Bean make King St. The place to be. One of a kind space, sometimes hard to find seating though and the cortado is really small. + They serve Dangerously Delicious Pies

    Very cool hip coffee shop. The coffee and espresso can take a little while to make, but the worth, and sometimes a bit steep prices are largely worth it. The serve Stumptown, and it. is amazing.

    This is where you get heavenly espresso drinks. My vote is a cappuccino or latte - keep it simple and do NOT add sugar or flavorings. Enjoy.

    Note to people who are allergic to pets... They allow dogs+ indoors. As much as I love them, I don't want to sneeze my way through a work/study session. And the dog fights are distracting too.
