    By far my favorite coffehouse in Portland. Simple, neutral, sterile layout - very European. Different music each time - every once in a while I'll hit a day when they softly bump trance! Love, love.

    This downtown cafe is the boutique arm of Coffee Bean International, one of North America's largest roasters and the home to one of the only Slayer Espresso machines in Portland.

    Their espresso is freshly roasted locally and always great. They also have excellent pastries from a nearby bakery. Highly recommended the chocolate croissant or blueberry muffin.

    Fantastic espresso and pour over coffees. Pictured here is one of their beautiful espresso machines called The Slayer. The nearby Stumptown is excellent as well, but don't overlook Public Domain.

    Bake Shop pastries and standout granola $3. Almond cappuccino good $3.50. Unexciting decor but sunny street corner downtown.

    One of the best coffees in town. Really like their home made Granola. Expect a long line in the morning.

    Minimalistic coffee place that makes an amazing cup of coffee. If you want something loaded with a ton of sugar masking the taste of coffee, this is not your place.

    Great place to relax with a cup if coffee on a rainy day. They have a fun window seating area to people watch the folks passing by on the street.

    I always get a macchiato in house and sit with my latest book in the afternoons. Best part? The cookie on the side!

    Vanilla lattes are from another world. Consistently great coffee - I always bring the family here when they're in town. They agree.

    The house blend coffee is a mix of beans selected and tasted by the baristas at Public. Highly recommend.

    Fantastic coffee. My friend, coffee newbie, took a while to decide what to order that seems to upset the grumpy barista.

    Great coffee and friendly staff that helped us find more spots to check out when we visited Portland.

    If you thought this place was all about couches and comfortable conversations, you have mistaken its previous iterations for its current one, which kind of sucks. Unless u want an indie Starbucks.

    Try either Prometheus Espresso or Panama Esmeralda Special Mario Carnaval ($6 a cup or $80 per lbs)! They also have really good cold-brewed coffee.

    Try the gibraltor, it's rare it can be made to such a level of perfection it's sweet without bitterness or extra sugar. A+ gem.

    Wow! I felt like I was in the way at a little after 5 pm, all employees cleaning up and shutting down around me... Even though they don't even close until 6! Not the greatest first impression.

    Superlative pastries in all varieties. The brioche and croissants are unreasonably good.

    Good alternative to stumptown in downtown Portland. Designed for short stays with lots of bar seating and standing space.

    Order a gibraltor and give your mouth a hug. Always remember to tip kindly, especially if you have a Groupon; don't be a dick!

    They do not provide sugar for coffee. They make their own simple syrup mixture. So bring your own or use their syrup mix.

    The workers here noticeably take pride in what they serve. As someone who values quality over quantity I'll go here over a big chain coffeehouse anytime.

    If your coming to work on A computer or sit for a while, you might want to go elsewhere. No outlets, and only bar stools.
