Pro tips

WiFi known to get bogged down at times--not reliably fast. Sofas and more seating towards the back of the space. Outlets near most tables and even some built into the red sofas (look behind your head). Great standing bar up front with natural light. Iced coffee on draft with no carbonation. Near the interstate, MAX yellow line and PCC Cascade campus. A popular pick by local writers, the Coffee House Writers Group PDX meets here occasionally.

    More food than just pastries and snacks. They have hot breakfast sandwiches and wraps that are really tasty.

    You’d think it would be busier since it’s next to a very large PCC campus but there’s always an outlet and table waiting for you. The internet used to be bad but seems much, much better these days.

    New wifi : *****
    Wif not too bad today : http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4843134971
    Large, bright space with lots of art on the walls. Not too many people mid-morning on a weekday.

  • Great atmosphere, art on the walls, music. Painfully slow wifi!

    Great ambiance, great coffee, great owners. Red e is a favorite of nearby PCC students. At peak times the wifi can get bogged down.

    If you want some natural light while you work, this is a good choice. There is great seating in the front near a large window. If you head to the back of the space you will find a few comfy sofas that could work well for a group meetup.
