    Super friendly baristas in the back making delicious lattes. The bathrooms downstairs cost 25 cents to use, and smell like a homeless person. Saw Lena Dunham here once.

    Stumptown coffee is always welcome but you're missing out if you don't sample the always delicious cookies. Try the salted peanut butter, you'll thank me later.

    Great destination for an afternoon coffee run sans line! Be sure to ask for the soy if you so desire; they keep it behind the counter.
