Best coffee shops in Portland

I'm visiting Portland for the first time and I want to know where to get my caffeine on!  I hear that the coffee up there is pretty amazing.  Oh, and since I'm visiting during holiday season, bonus points if there are places with special holiday flavors like gingerbread, peppermint, etc.  I'm a sucker for those.  Thanks!

    I agree that Stumptown Coffee Roasters is great. There's a little cafe at the end of Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park called the Bean and Tree that serves Stumptown coffee and mixes up really special flavor combinations. My favorite is the Sleeping Giant that has vanilla and ginger syrup, espresso, and steamed milk. They do a great job of catering to your tastes so that my drink was perfectly balanced and not too sweet.

    Waterfront park is just beautiful anyway, so it's really perfect to stop by this little cafe, grab a cup, and either sit outside and enjoy the view of the water, or walk along the waterfront.

    Stumptown is a given! They're a local chain in Portland so they have a few locations and you can also get their coffee at a lot of other coffee shops in the city. Besides that, one of the coolest coffee shops I've ever to is Coava Roastery and Coffee Bar . Coffee's great and I want to decorate my house as they do their shop.

      This is a great suggestion, Eli. Beverly, here's more info on all of Stumptown's domain: http://stumptowncoffee.com/location/portland/ I didn't include this in my own answer because I'm more into coffee shop atmosphere than the actual coffee, even though it is a great roast. · (2 likelikes)

      Thanks for that Annemarie! I actually haven't been to a Stumptown proper, but I noticed that their coffee appeared to be served almost everywhere in Portland. · (1 likelikes)

    I really enjoyed Case Study Coffee there. They used to brew the Stumptown coffee that Lissa mentioned (Stumptown is great!), but now they also brew their own!

    By the way, if it's your first time in Portland, you also have to have a donut at Voodoo Doughnut !

    As others have mentioned, you have to get some Stumptown coffee. They're actually pretty big in Washington where I live and I have Stumptown coffee all the time. Here's a secret, though... when I used to live in Portland, I pretty much called Coffeehouse Northwest home, and I hate to admit this because I drink Stumptown all the time, but... I prefer Coffeehouse Northwest over it, so give them a visit if you can!

    Just so you know -- I'm a coffee snob, so I think that Stumptown will satisfy many coffee lovers' palettes, but I just find CN's brew more complex.

    All of the shops listed here are awesome. I like Coffeehouse Northwest but anywhere that serves Stumptown is a safe bet.

    Two standouts are Nuvrei Patisserie & Café on NW 10th Avenue and St. Honoré Boulangerie . If you are a coffee purist, be sure to try Stumptown brand, it so much better than Starbucks!
