Over the past decade, Portland has shown up Big Sister Seattle as the reigning coffee city in America, and these top-notch roasters, coffeeshops, and cafes are the reason why.
Sweet neighborhood coffee spot, the beating heart of Sellwood. Pastries come fresh from Crema bakery, and cream & sugar sit perched on an old piano. Great for studying.
This retro-adorable coffee spot is a great people-watching perch that also serves a killer Breakfast Burrito for just $3.
As seen on Portlandia! Oblique owners John and Heather Chandler prove that Portlanders can have their great coffee and comfortably drink it, too. Oblique feels like what your living room dreams of becoming, with great light from the bank of windows, historic tchotchkes and photographs lining the counters, and comfy couches.
Billy Wilson's well-curated artisan cafe invented the concept of multiple roasters featured behind a single coffee bar. The best place in Portland to hone your single-origin coffee-snob chops. Best for grabbing to go.
Stalwart of PDX's DIY coffee culture. Keith Miller’s café and micro-roastery offer a space that's minimalist but cozy, with a knowledgeable staff, local art, and truly great coffee.
With humble beginnings (home roasted beans delivered by bicycle) this spot keeps it real with a few top-notch pastries (like caneles and choc chip cookies) and amazing roasts.
Some of the best coffee in town. Gorgeous space anchored by large roaster that is pretty noisy when in action. Be warned: limited outlets and off-and-on wifi, so study/work somewhere else.
This offshoot of SE Division’s Detour Café serves from-scratch pastries, sandwiches, soups, and focaccia pizza in a huge concrete-chic space that was once a Model T factory.
The original. There's a reason people around the world know Stumptown, and that reason is a steadfast dedication to quality, education, and service. These guys set the bar and continue to act as trendsetters in the PDX market and beyond.
My favorite bagels in town! Great coffee, great service, though can be slow on weekends. Try the herby salty bagel with cream cheese, tomatoes, and onions. Amazing lox, too!
