Besides the coffee shops in Portland Oregon we’ve already mentioned in this article, some of the other coffee shops like Stumptown Coffee that you should consider visiting include: 


Portland’s pioneering multi-roaster coffee bar, Barista has two downtown locations and a third tucked into the Pearl District. The cozy cafes feature beans from roasters across Portland and beyond, as well as sweets from Roman Candle. The shop’s Pine Street Market location also boasts a vacuum-infusion tea system.

Behind the Museum Cafe

A serene, almost monastic coffee shop lined with Japanese art and ceramics, Behind the Museum Cafe is one of our favorite cafes in the city. With its high, airy ceilings and lengthy menu of Japanese teas, temple-style snacks and Extractor coffee drinks, it’s the perfect place to have a relaxing cup of matcha or catch up on work. 

1229 S.W. 10th Ave., 503-477-6625,

Case Study Coffee

A cozy, wood-accented cafe, Case Study is another coffee shop in town roasting their own blends. With tons of comfortable seating, a case full of Roman Candle and Petunia’s pastries, and Bowery bagels, you’ll find few better places to spend an afternoon people-watching or working. 

802 S.W. 10th Ave., 503-477-8221,

Courier Coffee Roasters

A longstanding downtown Portland cafe, Courier Cafe has been serving its daily house-roasted, single-origin beans for more than seven years. Sample a house made pastry or visit on a summer weekend when the shop shaves mountains of Japanese shaved ice until it’s sold out. 

923 S.W. Oak St., 503-545-6444,

Heart Coffee Roasters

This streamlined, Scandinavian-inspired cafe specializes in light roast coffees. Regroup within its black and white walls of the bright, West End cafe with a cup of coffee or tea and a pastry. 

537 S.W. 12th Ave., 503-224-0036,

Ole Latte Coffee

A cute coffee cart parked near Portland State, Ole Latte offers one thing few other places in the city do: a “suspended coffee” program. It’s a pay-it-forward system that anyone can donate to or use. Paired with locally sourced beans and products, the cart is our go-to morning feel-good destination. 

Southwest Fifth Avenue and Harrison Street, 971-221-6318,

Ristretto Roasters

This Portland roaster recently made a big downtown push, opening two cafes within blocks of each other, one in the former Oregonian building and the other at the base of KOIN Tower. You’ll find quality macchiatos and Jasmine Pearl tea during the day, and beer and wine in the evenings. 

1320 S.W. Broadway, 503-954-1776; 222 S.W. Columbia St., 503-477-9087;

Coffee and Food Pairing Tips


Okay, now that we’ve given you some great tips for Coffee Shops in Portland Oregon we’re going to also give you some great tips on coffee and food pairing so you will know what to order or eat with your delicious cup of Portland OR Coffee.

Beignets – Oh good lord, do we love Cafe Du Monde, the New Orleanian temple to laten-night milky coffee and fried powder sugar dough. Our May 2011 visit still haunts the sugary dreams of Your Sprudge Editors, who long, deep in their bones, to return to #MamaNOLA someday soon. Arguably the greatest coffee and food pairing, owing to magic that happens whilst dunking your beignet into all that urn-brewed chicory drip. Good right down to the last sugar-sludge sip!

Coffee Cake – So focused is this foodstuff on being paired with coffee, you can’t order one without implicitly mentioning the other. You’ve probably got your own desert (or is it dessert?) island slice of coffee cake in mind, but for us, our favorite is made by the fine folks at Glo’s Cafe in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Not too flakey, not too sweet, perfectly glutenous and available at 3am on Friday and Saturday nights.

Plain cake donut – You can dunk any donut, really, but there’s perhaps none more satisfying to merge with coffee than the good old fashioned plain cake. Our personal favorite? You can’t go wrong with a trip to Randy’s Donuts in Los Angeles, a mid-century architectural icon that was the basis for “Lard Lad” donuts on The Simpsons. As if to beckon all who visit, Randy’s much-loved giant donut sign is clearly visible on descent into LAX.
