Brief walk from the Fulton House Inn. JoLa has great breakfast and coffee. Plus the reception from the staff makes you want to stay and just hang out. "High five for men with out hair"

I just found this lovely little cafe' and bought a Cappuccino and a blueberry Danish. Using Stumptown coffee the espresso was expertly extracted offering notes of hazelnut and chocolate, the milk was steamed (understandably) a little hastily with slightly too much air but made for a delicious Capp. none the less. The Danish was frankly amazing. Using fresh blueberries and incredibly flaky/buttery crust makes for an outstanding experience. I'm currently visiting family here in Portland and eating at JoLa triggered the thought of possibly moving here in the future. If you want good coffee and great pastries, this is the place to go.

I am really fatigued by the concept of coffee house as boisterous, hip hang-out. When I meet for a cup of coffee in the middle of the business day, that last thing I want is to be talking over background music that is not quite in the background. I long for a place I can read or have a civilized conversation with a good cup of coffee. This place really scores on those points. No background music. Clean, simply attractive and well lighted from large windows. Absolutely terrific coffee.

Had lunch today. Food was good, attractive, filling, tasty. I am gluten and dairy free and the wait staff was very patient with me.

As a plus they had my favorite pastry made by Petunias. A pumpkin and chocolate sweet. Yum
