Best Wifi work spots in Portland, OR for freelancers and entrepreneurs

If you are an entrepreneur, writer, developer, graphic designer, artist, author, researcher or student living in Portland, OR you are probably always looking for coffee shops and restaurants with the best wifi.

My co-founder, Darren Buckner and I migrate around the city looking for the fastest Internet, the tastiest coffee and the yummiest sandwiches (our favorite is Urban Grind). Over the past year Darren has tested and logged the Internet speed and wifi connection at the most popular watering holes around Portland, OR.

Check out some of our local favorites after the jump.
