Top 10 Coffee Shops

A lot of people have asked me recently about my favorite Portland coffee shops, so I decided to put together a list of my top 10 (in no particular order- these would be impossible to rank!) to spotlight some of my favorites! These shops are located all throughout the Portland Metro area and have different…

The Arrow Coffeehouse

The Arrow Coffeehouse PDX recently opened on the corner of NE MLK and Alberta. While it may be in NE, the shop is conveniently located off the freeway, making it accessible to most Portlanders. It also has a parking lot and ample seating, which are 2 features you don’t typically find in a Portland coffee…

The Society Hotel

The Society Hotel may (obviously) be a hotel, but it also has a pretty awesome coffee shop in the lobby. The location is a perfect blend of old and new, historic and renovated. The hotel itself was built in the late 19th century as a safe haven for sailors.  Throughout the years, the location has…

Lionheart Coffee

Everyone knows that Portland is a cool coffee city, but Lionheart brings that special Portland coffee vibe and charm to the suburbs. Located off of Scholls Ferry in Tigard, you wouldn’t expect Lionheart to serve some of Portland’s best coffee. It’s a hidden gem! The shop serves coffee from numerous local roasters, including Ristretto Roasters,…

Rachel’s Ginger Beer

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard of ginger beer, but have never had the chance to try it. Thankfully, Rachel’s Ginger Beer (which is super popular in Seattle) just opened its first location in PDX! The cool shop is located right in the heart of Hawthorne across from the Baghdad Theater. So, Rachel’s serves…

Cup & Bar

The perfect place for a chocolate and coffee lover, Cup & Bar provides high-quality Ranger chocolate and delicious Trailhead Coffee. The shop itself is quite large with ample seating. It also has cool wooden log seats and tables!  It was hard to decide what to order, but my friends and I ultimately decided on a…

Never Coffee

So I’m basically obsessed with this place. Delicious coffee, adorable decor, and an awesome mural make it nearly perfect. Located on SE Belmont right across from the popular brunch spot, Slappy Cakes, I can definitely see Never Coffee quickly growing in popularity.  The interior of Never Coffee is small, but there is still some seating…

40 LBS COFFEE BAR

This place is only a few days old, but it’s already one of my favorite coffee shops! Since my family knows the owners, I know how much time, effort, and thought went into each and every element of this shop. The decor is absolutely gorgeous and super high-end. It’s very industrial, but the awesome lighting…

Commissary

Located on NW 19th and Lovejoy, Commissary is only blocks away from the ever-busy NW 23rd, yet is much quieter. The interior of Commissary is bright and airy, with simple wooden tables and flowers decorating each table. There’s also a super cool mirror on one of the walls that adds even more light to the…

Spella Caffe

Spella Caffe, located on 5th Avenue downtown, is definitely one of the smallest coffee shops in Portland. It’s hard to even call Spella a shop, as the inside of the shop only includes the espresso equipment, menu board, pastries, and a small standing area to pay. However, there is seating outside reserved for Spella customers….

Prince Coffee

A great new coffee place just opened up in Kenton called Prince Coffee, and it’s a great little spot. Located inside Revive Upholstery, it shares the space with the furniture store, which gives it a great, homey vibe.     I ended up going on Prince’s official grand opening, which meant free stroopwaffle! The waffles are…

Tōv

Tōv is a legit Turkish coffee place located on Hawthorne on a red double decker bus. For the experience alone, it’s worth a stop.    There was lots of seating on the top decker of the bus! We ordered a variety of drinks to test: the mint thing (which was just coffee, cream, and mint–…
