“Laid-back outlet of a local chain café with light breakfast & lunch options, plus outdoor seating.”

Why head to your neighborhood Starbucks when you can get your favorite coffee beverages at this local North Portland spot? When back in PDX, one of my favorite coffee spots to visit is Anna Bannanas St. Johns. This funky and  laid back cafe has everything you need — comfy seating, great local art all around, and smooth, flavorful coffee. Located in downtown St. Johns, Anna Bannanas is the perfect place to power through any work or creative projects you need to get done while also enjoying a bold cup of jo.Anna Bannanas


As a theatre artist, a good coffee shop is instrumental to my creative process.  Whenever I find myself buried in my dark room for hours on end, I remember that I can easily go somewhere that will not only keep me caffeinated but will provide a better ambiance than the grey walls I’ve been staring at for the past six hours — Anna Bannanas is that place. One rainy afternoon, my buddy and I decided we needed to get out of the house and start brainstorming our  next project. Immediately when we walked into Anna Bannanas we felt a sense of productivity.  I grabbed a 16 ounce soy latte and he grabbed a 16 ounce regular latte and a breakfast bagel sandwich as we hunkered down for a long afternoon of work.

 Besides offering a fantastic atmosphere for productivity,  Anna Bannanas would be the perfect easy going date spot — with a full menu of delicious food, plus a rotating selection of beer and wine.  Also, if you enjoy some cool, local music — this cafe offers free live music every last Friday of the month. 

 Please give Anna Bannanas your business — and if this spot is a little out of your way, they also have a sister location in NW Portland.
