Southeast Grind - Exterior“Unpretentious coffeehouse serving local health-focused snacks, smoothies & espresso 24 hours a day!”

 A trip to Portland demands a trip to my favorite grungy PDX coffeehouse, Southeast Grind!  Throughout high school and college, Southeast grind was the place to go. With this very Portland coffeehouse being open 24 hours and their coffee being excellent, Southeast Grind has become a hub for students, creatives, and bar hoppers who are in need of a little caffeine fix to help them sober up. Southeast Grind is everything you want and need in a coffeehouse. There is plenty of comfortable seating (including some nice sofas), fast wifi, a warm fireplace for the colder months, and excellent coffee and snacks.

 Black Friday 2K17, I had the opportunity to meet up with my good friend, Samantha, for some post-turkey caffeine and card games. I had The Jade — one of their specialty drinks that is mixed with two espresso shots, steamed milk, and lavender syrup and Samantha treated herself to a flaky, buttery croissant. As we sat there for hours catching up and playing our games, I couldn’t help to notice the different groups that were in the coffee shop. In one corner there was a book club happening, in another there was a bible study. The couple across from me were on an online date, and in the back there was a guy working on his art. This says to me that the Southeast Grind is a place where Portlanders of all different backgrounds and interests feel comfortable spending their time.

 Portland, Oregon is without a doubt a coffee city with a plethora of cozy spots to choose from.  I understand it could be difficult for you, the reader, to venture away from your frequented coffeehouse. That being said, if you are looking to pull a late night at a local spot or a comfortable place to retreat to for hours on end on a lazy Sunday, I would earnestly recommend the Southeast Grind!
