Palio Dessert & Espresso House

A laptop-friendly space in Portland


Darren Buckner

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.

  • I’ve not been to Palio much in a while, but used to live around the corner. Came back the other day, Comcast wifi download was 25mbps, but to day 0.3mbps. Otherwise a fine place.

  • Nice and quiet here. And I actually find the pay for food or drink to get 3 hours of wifi refreshing. Helps me notice the passage of time and I’m fine with helping to pay for the space I’m using.
    Cortado was sub-par, by the way. was more like a sort of small cappucino.👎
    Drip coffee was pretty decent though.

    The coffee and pastries are OK, but the food isn’t great. Must make a purchase of 2.75 every 3 hours to continue using the wifi.

    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.

  • 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.

    • Updated and added new pro tip. Stay awesome!

  • 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.

  • Password is now: eatacookie

      Updated. Thanks!

  • 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 new WiFi password is eatmorecake

    • Darren Buckner

      updated. thanks!

    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.
