Foursquare Tips

  • Start your morning off with a cup of Stumptown Coffee or Samboya Tea, and a Vegan Scramble. Or come during the evening for live music, open mic night and PBRs.
  • Mexican blend. Rwanda roast. The zucchini-peach-pecans flaking, sugar-sprinkled top and moist, ginger-flecked body makes for morning bliss.Lunch but most regulars camp out to snack solo with a laptop
  • Egg n cheddar and a cup of stumptown. The. Best.
  • Yoohoo Mochas . . . oh yeah!

  • Choc-banana bread from Blue Sky Bakery is superb.
  • Favorite little neighborhood cafe - very friendly staff and a loaded breakfast burrito with coffee for under $10 is a great deal.
  • coffee is quite delicious, but ambiance is a bit obnoxious. lots of books on display, but the lighting is too dim to read. staff's familiar demeanor can come off more clingy than friendly...

  • Cash only. Secret backyard..
