    Generic coffee in US is a huge cup of coffee flavored water but it's not the case here. Herr you can try really delicious coffee. Forget about milky ones - try drip, pour over, cold brew or espresso!

    Espresso drinks are, as they say, killer. Don't miss out on the fantastic cold brew. Say hi to Buddy, the shoppe's dog. Enjoy the Cali-inspired space.

    Great coffee, delicious gelato, and delicious looking everything else. This place is quirky and cool and definitely a great stop for coffee and dessert and conversation!

    Great espresso and the chocolate crackle cookie was on point. Wish I could've sampled even more desserts/pies/empanadas, everything looked bomb! Plus lots of pups and babes around for great vibe.

    Free WiFi, really great artwork (always new, too!), amazing gelato (pomegranate basil... heaven), great espresso and food and some of the best people work here. My favorite place to chill in Old Town!

    This and Grape + Bean make King St. The place to be. One of a kind space, sometimes hard to find seating though and the cortado is really small. + They serve Dangerously Delicious Pies

    Back patio is great in warm weather. And the soy chai latte is phenomenal. Definitely coming back with a book or other leisurely reading material.

    Order a tea and a slice of pie and sit at the bar. The baristas are always so friendly and willing to chat. Weekday nights are best to avoid the rush.

    This is a cozy place in downtown to sit and read or work. They stock all the Stumptown canned drinks too which is great

    Note to people who are allergic to pets... They allow dogs+ indoors. As much as I love them, I don't want to sneeze my way through a work/study session. And the dog fights are distracting too.

    This is where you get heavenly espresso drinks. My vote is a cappuccino or latte - keep it simple and do NOT add sugar or flavorings. Enjoy.

    Great drinks and food but when it is a single person who is taking orders, making drinks, serving food and cleaning up the line moves sooooooo slow. I don't get why this is a "thing" at coffee shops.

    their iced green tea tastes a lot like water. I understand the pies aren't fresh but my chicken pot pie was warmed in a microwave (not even a toaster oven) and I could've done that at home

    I had heard good things about Dangerously Delicious Pies, so I was excited to try them here. Underwhelmed. Wouldn't come back for them. The gelato was grainy rather than smooth. Overrated spot.
