Perfect coffee, great setting, delicious biscuits or quiche or breakfast sandwich! Love this place. Wonderful staff, very warm and friendly - not precious nor pretentious. My morning caffeine Jones was wonderfully sated!

I love all of there pastries and drinks but a few things that would keep me from returning....
1. When it is gone it is gone! When I visited it was about 10 am and they were out of my first and second choice (one was a breakfast sandwich and the second a plain biscuit with butter and jelly the woman in front of me got)
2. NO WIFI! I get they don't want people sitting there on their laptop all day but I actually went there to do something quick on my laptop. When I asked the girl at the counter for the wifi and she said they didn't have it I got my order and left!
3. One size for all drinks. I work a lot and basically function only with caffeine and when they told me there was only one size (which is pretty small) I was a little disappointed.

Even after all the complaining I do have to say the tea and pistachio cake I got were amazing!!

Stopped by for breakfast with family--deliciously fresh baked scones, muffins, pies and much more! Everyone enjoyed their selection and we agreed to return the next day for a repeat meal. Was not disappointed--went earlier and the selection was even greater! This will be our new breakfast spot when we are in Portland!!

Great chic atmosphere and fresh baked goods, worst latte I've ever had the almond milk was sour and the espresso was very weak

This is a great low-key place to meet folks and enjoy watching the world go by on Congress. Recommended - the biscuit breakfast sandwiches that they keep hidden in their warmer. Pie was also just like my grandmothers'.
