“Great locally owned coffee shop.”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Good coffee. Great place to read the paper, have a business meeting, meet a friend.

Also, they have live music on the weekends and serve beer/cocktails, and it's a really nice intimate venue.

Highly recommended.

Reviewed 25 July 2012

Can't beat it for a good cup of coffee. Meet a friend. right down from the capital or Willamette University. Have a seat, grab a mocha, and read the oregonian on a great sunday morning.

“Governor's cup roast beans on site.”
Reviewed 3 August 2010

If you want a good cup of coffee or tea go to the Governor's cup. Not much for food, there are pastries, bagels and fruit. They roast coffee beans on Tuesday. No matter what day of the week it is, you will have a fresh cup of coffee. Free WiFi. Try the mexican mocha hot or iced.
