Cooper's outside patio gets a ton of sun at just the right times, and they are very dog friendly. If you order anything they’ll give your dog a free biscuit. The walls are plastered with pictures of adorable neighborhood dogs, so its an ideal place to walk your dog in the morning.
This is a place to hang – I'm and artist. My exterior is rough, I hang out with others who are the same. So when I get good service which is friendly, attentive and prompt I return as a regular and I bring my friends.
The wall for the Art is long and easy for everyone to see. The selection process for the work is informal, I brought in photo's of my work and the next week I came in and they said yes. Even if she had said no, it was easy and straight forward.
My show "The Spirit of this - the Spirit of that" portraits in wood and wax is the month of July 2008.

AMENDED REVIEW!!! They are good now... – I used to get mad attitude whenever I went into this place, but that has all changed. Not sure why. But now they have really nice people behind the counter. I like the guy with the big blue eyes. Grreeeattt iced coffee on a hot day, especially when they have the sugar syrup out.
Good baked goods. Yum...
Furry Kisses – Cooper's Coffee is the best coffee spot in town. A lovely view, friendly dogs, local neighbors and great coffee and food. And the best part is the owner, Michael! I love him. He always remembers my drink and better yet, my name. I find myself a bit disappointed when he is not there.
Michael is an ardent supporter of the community and always has a bright shiny smile...and for the times he doesn't, perhaps it is because someone was just being rude and expectant to him or someone else...that will not fly. No, the coffee will not always be your best and favorite - come on people - what you had for breakfast or to drink the night before will influence your tastebuds...it is not always the coffee's fault!
A lovely patio to sit in repose and contemplate the beauty of life...a hot cup of coffee......and to be kissed by a 4-footed furry creature....what more could one ask for?
Great neighborhood coffee shop with very good pie. – Really like this place. Perfect destination for us after a cold, wet walk across Mt. Tabor. Good coffee, good pie, no blaring music, locals hanging out chatting, few posers, good pie, etc. Great place to read the Sunday paper and fatten up on pie for the walk home.
Don't forget pie.
Great Place with great service – To hear some of the other reviews was very untasteful, the bad ones anyway put yourself on the other side. Customer service is a great thing to have but if you have a attitude of everything is about me. Then expect bad service. Especially if you have never been in food service. Micheal is a great supporter of the community around him. He also treats people very well, But if you are rude expect to be treated that way. And for a local coffee shop the prices are more than fair, its not like other coffee shops were it is a chain and they can charge cheaper prices. If you feel that you deserve the everybody drop everything and service me then maybe you should go some where else. Everybody is entitled to be treated with respect both employee and customer. As far as Coopers goes you won't find a better place then that. Way to go Micheal on your great success of your new place. You deserve it!
Must have been a bad day! – Wow, I was surprised to read the glowing reviews about the customer service. My sister and I were there on 8/3 for a quick drink in the afternoon. We had to wait a couple of minutes for the gal behind the counter to get off of her personal phone call to take our order. She was so blah and unfriendly that we were talking about it later and wondering what the owner would think if he/she knew that. I wasn't feeling all that great so I had an Italian Soda, which tasted very watered down. My sis's coffe was just okay. In spite of all that, we liked the idea of the place and the other patrons and their dogs were very friendly, and the food in the case looked fabulous! So I asked the guy behind the counter for a menu that we could take, as we both live a ways away. They don't have a printed menu at all. I asked if they have a website, he said he thought so (haven't found it yet, which is how I got here), but he wasn't sure if there was a menu there or not. Believe it or not, I plan to go back once to taste the food, but if the service is the same that will be the last time!
A perfect coffee spot – Beautiful space
I always get regular
coffees, nothing fancy, so I can't speak to
the more exotic drinks, but the plain old coffee
is just right.
Bathroom = very clean
My favorite coffee place in all of Portland.
Great Neighborhood Cup o Joe – I love this place! Free wireless internet, good strong espresso, expansive menu variety, customer service is fantastic! First visit was a bit rough in that a transient came in an was nagging customers (myself included) for money and even trying to sneak into the tip jar. The situation was handled promptly and appropriately. Whoever was working behind the counter (maybe the owner?) later gave us a complimentary dessert as an apology for the hassle. And it was DELICIOUS! My fiance and I have been back several times now and plan to make it our regular joint since it is just right around the corner from our new place. Highly recommend!
Nice neighborhood coffeshop – Staff is very friendly, they have free wi-fi, coffee is good but mocha's are just average. Top draw for me is that they are dog friendly, free biscuits for the pooch and no one freaks out when you bring your pup in while you place your order.
Atmosphere is nice, this used to be an old fire station (I think) and it has an nice old building feeling to it.
Great customer service, generous contributor to the community – Just read the last review and was floored! Michael is a great guy. He'll call you on it if you are rude to him, and I've seen people being rude to him when I was standing in line behind them. Just because someone is working behind a counter doesn't mean they are your servant and have to withstand your bad behavior! If you lose your coffee card, it isn't his problem- how can he believe everyone who says that? No business owner would. Cooper's Coffee is a generous contributor to the community, regularly donating to the local schools. What a great addition to the neighborhood!
