Great coffee and food. But the atmosphere is tops. Truly wonderful environment. Family run. Homemade scones. Great people who run it and interesting people attracted as a result. It's just the kind of place you want to become a regular at.

I especially like the pumpkin pie, but I also like the soups and sandwiches. You can watch travel scenes on the big screens, also. This is a favorite of neighbors and locals. I have found the service to be kind and cheery.

One of our favorite places to eat. The food is consistently well prepared and delicious. The mushroom omlet was the best I've ever tasted. The sandwiches are excellent as are the desserts. We enjoyed the travel videos while eating and would recommend this little cafe as a fun place to escape for an hour or so.

I made several visits to this place and love it! I think the food is perfectly prepared and the coffee drinks are great. There isn't table service, just line up at the counter like you have to do at a Starbucks, and then the food is brought to your table. Breakfast, soups, and baked goods are yummy. Not open for dinner. Sit and enjoy a nice travel magazine in this peaceful setting.

I stopped by for a quick relaxing lunch and what I got was poor service, bad attitude and mediocre food. There's a lot of really good restaurants in Portland - this is not one of them. Don't make the mistake I did - GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.
