You have to seek out this cosy coffee shop in Ladd's Addition. It certainly isn't on a main thoroughfare which makes it a very quiet and comfortable venue to enjoy conversation, coffee and food. The food is mainly desserts, and lunch fare--soup, grilled sandwiches, salads....More

We walked here after dinner for espresso and a cake. Nice place to sit and relax on a pretty square/roundabout. Only complaint was espresso could have been hotter.

Yesterday I accidentally stumbled upon this place while lost in Portland trying to get over to Sellwood. It was positioned on a huge roundabout with beautiful trees and shrubbery. The whole neighborhood is peaceful and serene. It is called Ladd's Circle or something like that....More

I am a coffee lover and I am always trying to find local gems in the city. This is one of a kind, and up to now one of my favorite places in SE. Coffee is good, food is good, desserts are to DIE FOR!...More
