Three places to work when the sun comes out in Portland

Update: You can now filter by outdoor-seating so you can find more great places in any city.

There is a special vibe in the air when the sun comes out in Portland. It’s basically paradise. If you want to enjoy the weather and still get some work done, here’s just a few good workspots to visit in Portland.

Barista Pearl

Great because the outdoor seating sits up high on a fun street in the Pearl District. A great spot for sun, people watching and some work.

Vivace Cafe

Great because the outdoor seating is tucked away. It’s perfect if you need some air but don’t want too much going on around you.

Crema Coffee and Bakery

Great because the space is outfitted with large track doors that open up and provide a wonderful outdoor-in experience.

    Cannot wait for the weather to warm up, so I can work outside! Yesterday was almost 80 and I hung outside River Maiden in the ‘Couv. They’ve got a couple tables that are in the shade, so that’s another option for those of us working remotely from the ‘Couv :) They also serve Stumptown and their baristas are amazing.

    Waypost has the best outdoor workspace I can think of, complete with sun umbrellas and a community managed, edible garden. Close seconds are Tiny’s off Hawthorn & Woodlawn near Dekum triangle for their shaded decks & Kenilworth on Gladstone for its spacious yard.

    Perfect combo for outdoor working: Seating + WiFi + Outlets. Those laptops heat up quickly. Shade element is optional :)
