Pro tips

When you make a purchase, ask for WiFi access and you'll receive a printed ticket with a unique code which expires after 3 hours. Outlets are generally accessible at the large tables. There are no outlets in the raised book-lined nook. Back room contains more large, solid, antique tables -- great for spreading out studies. Quiet with barely audible music perfect for work that requires concentration and extended periods of focus. Occasionally you'll see folks having a quiet conversation. Though there is space for a group, be warned that you may feel uncomfortable bringing a boisterous group or meeting here.

    GIANT cup of tea with unlimited hot water for $4.75.
    WiFi was fast and the seating is cozy but enough options for me to spread out.

    This is my first visit to a place found on workfrom, thanks everyone!

    Feels like an old school coffee shop — coffee could be better, wifi is weird (password with purchase), and yet both things add to their charm.

    Updated and added new pro tip. Stay awesome!

    WiFi is no longer open to anyone with the password. When you make a purchase, ask for WiFi access and you’ll receive a printed ticket with a unique code which expires after 3 hours.

    Pro tip: Outlets are generally accessible at the large tables. There are no outlets in the raised book-lined nook.

    I was there last night, Sunday around 8pm and stayed ’til 11pm. Great environment for focusing and getting stuff done.

    NOTE: the wifi has a 3-hr limit and you have to ask for a password that gets printed out. You log in and a 3-hr timer pops up on your screen.

    There’s a sign at the cash register that says: 3 hour internet with minimum purchase of $2.50

    Hmmmm … did my initial purchase of $6.50 buy me 6 hours of internet? I don’t know.

    New wifi is eatacookie. Love this place and the library like atmosphere of the back room. Perfect ambiance for focusing with a wall of windows to bring in natural light.

    The tables in the back are nice and long– great for working with a group or spreading out papers. There are food options but the dessert is really more of a reason to come here. The best key lime pie I’ve had in Portland.
