    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.

    Favorite little neighborhood cafe - very friendly staff and a loaded breakfast burrito with coffee for under $10 is a great deal.

    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.

    Wonderful Independent coffeeshop.. probably the best prices in the entire neighborhood. The art on the walls is lovely, and the sofa invites to linger.

    Coconut Iced Americano is tasty and so refreshing. Wide range of satisfying breakfast food and sandwiches are solid.

    Interesting little cafe that does Stumptown. Get the peanut butter sandwich with bananas, honey and cinnamon on sourdough. Yum!

    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.

    The iced coconut americano is genius! Choosing between the yogurt&granola, breakfast sammie and breakfast burrito is a weekly struggle.

    I love this place. It's far enough away from the hubbub to really feel relaxed and homey. Great breakfast sandwiches and coffee.

    Awesome little spot. The vegan tacos are great. Get there early enough and they have little vegan energy breakfast bars.

    I come here way to much. Dark roast (house) is my morning wake up. Their bowls, burritos and sandwiches are all the jam.

    You can find the Blue Sky Bakery's incredibly addictive banana bread here and they cut more generous portions of it than other places.
