Common Grounds Coffeehouse +4

A laptop-friendly space in Portland · More in Portland

Darren Buckner

Outlets near the wall/bar seating. There are small (one/two person) tables in the center, with no outlet access. On nice days, tables are set up outside in the alley, some of which have power outlets.

    The atmosphere here is a little on the less-organized/cluttered side of things, but still nice. Wifi is great, their 5-2 network (second 5G network I suppose) was the fastest in my tests, and their mocha is really good!

    password update: everything

    There are 3 wifi networks beginning with commongrounds-guest, the password is the same for all.

  • Password is now: sunflower

  • A couple notes: there are a number of places to plug in along the walls – near the lamps – most of the table seating does not have easy access to power. They have a number of couches. Seating for 40ish people. Tables are all 2 tops, but grouped together in rows, so you can expand for a group meeting. There’s 6 spots along the windows that could be used as standing desks (and have barstools.)

    There are a couple of benches out front – and bike parking right out front.

    Common Grounds serves Caffe Vita coffee and a wide variety of Foxfire Teas.

  • They have brewed decaf at all hours! Best coffee prices I’ve seen.

    Far from most convenient but certainly always one of my favorites.

    • Darren Buckner

      Was it slow or something else?
