This cozy cafe has an artsy, eclectic vintage feel. They serve Stumptown coffee, vegan chili with corn bread, as well as vegan muffins and cupcakes that are prepared in-house. Soymilk and tofu cream cheese available too.
Review by beanmail on August 12, 2010:
- Simple cafe on the same block as Champs Family Bakery!
Food: The day I visited they had a veggie sandwich special that was not only great, but totally trumped the looks of my omni friend's turkey sandwich (obviously). Fresh bread, hummus, and tons of veggies; only disappointed that it didn't come with a couple of chips or something besides a strawberry.
Atmosphere: eclectic decor, but a little too cramped/filled with wifi users for my taste. Most didn't seem to be eating/drinking anything, but they were so spread out that we had to sit outside. This was horrible since it doesn't seem like they have A/C.
Service: Chef was pleasantly chatty and friendly, even delivering our sandwiches to us outside. Cashier seemed to have a problem making change.
