Great local art, extraordinary barista's serving perfect drinks 99% of the time, dog friendly, eclectic music (on air plus live once in a while), interesting movie nights, wine and beer too, good propiganda (especially in the restroom). The place has EDGE but doesn't shout about it! What more can you ask for?
Good coffee, free wifi, plenty of extras.
My only regret is that I only discovered this place after I moved out of Sellwood, though I still try to find excuses to hang out. It's exactly what a neighborhood coffee shop should be: good coffee drinks, free wireless internet, a nice selection of snacks and sandwiches, and a small but well-picked range of wine and beer to bring you back down from your caffeine overload.
