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!
  • Awesome decor, really friendly staff, beautiful garden in the back, good coffee. Come here!
  • Not the fastest place, but everything is tasty and everyone's so nice here it's crazy. Like a cozy living room for the community. Take your time. Eat a coffee and drink a sandwich. Chillllllllll.
  • Cash only, chill place to study, breakfast burritos all day
  • Lemon ginger tea for meeee
  • Choc-banana bread from Blue Sky Bakery is superb.
  • Very friendly helpful staff. Quality coffee. Didnt like my cappuccio though... maybe American milk tastes different...
  • good late coffe and iced coffee worth a visit to try out
  • Free wifi and outlets near tables make this an attractive working spot, but expect it to be crowded!
  • The iced coconut americano is genius! Choosing between the yogurt&granola, breakfast sammie and breakfast burrito is a weekly struggle.
  • V/GF Tacos. Ftw!
  • Did I mentioned how amazing and friendly the owners of this coffee house are?
  • Two things- Iced salted caramel latte and maple butter latte
  • Coconut Iced Americano is tasty and so refreshing. Wide range of satisfying breakfast food and sandwiches are solid.
  • The iced salted caramel almond milk latte is the best iced coffee I've ever had. The loaded grits are okay although I personally prefer more salt and pepper. The grilled cheese on multigrain is good.
  • Vegan sandwiches! Get the tofu breakfast wrap
  • Favorite little neighborhood cafe - very friendly staff and a loaded breakfast burrito with coffee for under $10 is a great deal.
