50th & Hawthorne-S.E.
46th & Albina-N. Portland
This hip little coffee house is quite the popular place in Portland. We were there mid-day on a Thursday and this place was happening! If someone was not leaving right as we walked in we would have never found a seat. They must be doing something right to attract this type of crowd. Here at Albina Press many refer to them as “coffee artists”. Unfortunately that day I was maxed out on my caffeine intake so I went with a nice french press of loose leaf tea. It was quite delicious and I cannot wait to go back and try for myself their famous barista skills. They proudly serve Stumptown coffee; which by far is my favorite bean and they display local artists which is no surprise in Portland.
I’ve read many negative and positive reviews about this place but overall I had a pretty good experience. The barista’s were not overly friendly nor very enthusiastic about taking your order. I will definitely return but probably to their NoPo location.
