    Though it can be very crowded at times, it still provides the space for intimate conversations. Eclectic yet comfortable, Portfolio is becoming my "must go" place for the better moments in my life.

    I have there azai berry viscous tea and those were really good. I also had their cheese bar, which is like a cheesecake, which was really delicious as well. The service here was decently friendly.

    First time & immediately impressed! Very friendly employee - didn't rush us in ordering & explained delish foods. Perfect cappuccino & chai tea latte. Stoked on my lox & bagel served Sat & Sun only :)

    Plugs near the small table on the left and by the large couch. Plenty of outlets also at the back of the coffee shop. Free Wi-Fi for 4 hours when you order a drink. Password on the receipt. Read more

    Fri/Sat nights would be even better here if they stayed open past 10pm, say Midnight. I remember when they used to be open until 2am! Still a great hangout!

    Recover after hitting the 4th street thrift shops with a passable Illy coffee and some comfy armchairs. Looks like a chill spot to study on weekdays too.

    New interior design is interesting. More like cold Clockwork Orange than warm Twin Peaks. I miss the old furniture. Still same locals. Great iced mocha.

    Good enough to stop by if you're in a mad rush and can't go anywhere else. If you're a serious coffee drinker (like me) I suggest you skip.
