    Nice comfortable place to enjoy coffee and great coffee cake. A little on the pricey side for Portland.

    This is a cozy neighborhood cafe with an atmosphere that's like an arts & crafts bungalow meets library interior and oldies music from the 1940s are playing.

    If you haven't got cash and'll want refills, open a tab; there's a $5 minimum for cards. The pastries are OK, but I'd go for the cake. WiFi resets haphazardly (probably an ISP torrent deterrence).

    Excellent tea selection, a mini library in the back... Great place for studying or hanging out. Desserts are fantastic.

    Pros: tropical iced tea was great and the tables are huge (good study options). Cons: expensive for what you get and wifi only lasts 3 hrs.

    This is and will always be my favorite cafe on Portland. Try the tarts or spinach salad, and Mexican mocha. Come here for great place to study.

    They should just do a 50¢ charge for credit card purchases under $5 like other mom-&-pop coffee places in town. All I want is a coffee, I shouldn't be forced to buy more.

    The tea should probably be a little stronger in the lattes.

    Dope spot. Dude behind the counter was a little bugaboo.

    Hold a giant warm mug in both hands and gaze out the window at the rain you're not in.
