When I shared that I was headed to Portland, Oregon for the weekend I asked for recommendations of places to go. Coffee shops were highly recommended! My sister and I decided that on our trip we would bike around the town and discover these Portland coffee shops. On our route we also set out to discover handfuls of murals  and vintage shops. It made for a great day of exploring and snapping photographs, not to mention a great workout!

On your next visit to Portland, Oregon I would highly recommend doing something similar. There is so much to be seen! Portland is full of delicious coffee, artistic murals, and the coolest collection of vintage shops. We discovered most of these places on the NE and SE side of Portland.

5 Most Recommended Portland, Oregon Coffee Shops & What They are Known For

  1. Stumptown Coffee Roasters

    Hands down the most recommended Portland coffee shop was Stumptown Coffee Roasters. We stayed at the Embassy Suites which just so happened to be right across the street to a Stumptown (woot!). We both ordered a Vanilla Latte and both agreed that it was one of the best we have had. So we of course recommend it!
    What they are known for: Stumptown was one of the first in the third wave coffee trend. Treating coffee as an artisanal foodstuff, like wine, rather than a commodity. They pride themselves in making relationships with their producers. The organic cold brew, French blend, and vanilla latte are great picks at Sumptown Coffee Roasters.

  2. Heart Coffee Roasters

    We found Heart Coffee while searching Pinterest for “Instagram Worthy” shops and Heart Coffee Roasters without a doubt is an Instagrammers dream. One of our favorite Abbotsford Coffee Shops, Old Hand Coffee, shared with us that they also loved Heart Coffee when I shared we were visiting on my Instagram stories. We found their staff to be super friendly and so willing to chit chat and share more tips about great places to visit within the area.
    What they are known for: Heart Coffee makes all of their coffee and syrups in house. Their top sellers include their drip coffee and their espresso. They also have a small selection of pastries and were told that the Korvapiusti is a must try!

  3. Upper Left Roasters

    This little shop was one that we discovered on our bike trip. We couldn’t bike past Upper Left Roasters without checking it out. They have lots of tables on the patio and a gorgeous set up inside. If you ask me, another Instagrammers dream. I loved their branding and their tall sign out front.
    What they are known for: When I asked what they were known for I could barely finish before I got the answer of, “our avocado toast!”  We were riding on a full stomach so neither of us tried it but I am thinking by that response it is a must try! For coffee drinks we were told that their cold brews and flavoured lattes are the most popular.

  4. Nossa Familia Coffee

    While we were on our trip we shared about our Stumptown Cofffee Roasters visit and a friend let us know that we had to try Nossa Familia Coffee. As this friend roasts his own coffee (Smoking Gun) we took his recommendation as a good one! We ordered the Earl Grey Tea Soda advertised on the sign in the front of the store, highly recommend!
    What they are known for: Though we didn’t get to try we heard that the mochas are a must try, we also think the Earl Grey Soda’s should be on that list.

  5. Barista

    With multiple locations all over town you are bound to come across a Barista Coffee. We went to the one on 23rd Ave (across from Salt & Straw // another iconic Portland place!), and also saw a couple other during out Portland ventures.
    What they are known for: I asked to order what they were known for at Barista and left with a Honey Marzipan Latte. They also have a rotating collection of cookies fresh made in house. Yum!

  • Just about to head to Whistler with this guy and so excited to spend some time just the two of us! It’s been a whhhiiilllleeeeeee
  • Part way through our lunch the kids started to bicker back and forth, creating a rather not-so-enjoyable moment for everyone. It's those moments that us as parents can make a difference, how we handle situations with our children allows them to learn and grow through our words and actions. We spoke about the importance of being kind and how much more enjoyable our time together is when we are all speaking respectfully and sharing. .

I then shared with the kids that that was exactly why I was taking a few pictures with our pizza, to share with others about the launch of @panago_pizza's 2nd annual Bullying Awareness and Prevention campaign. That Panago wanted to celebrate young people who are being kind and looking out for others in their communities. Our kids are learning everyday, it's our job to be great role models, encourage their kind behaviour and then celebrate them in their good choices. .

Do you want to take a minute to celebrate a child in your life? From now until Nov 25th Panago is asking for you to nominate a deserving youth and share a story them using compassion to drive change. Go to my stories for more info and the link to nominate #sponsored #asliceofnice
  • Hey 👋🏻 it’s kinda late... for some I suppose.. I’m usually up til midnight working away and wanted to hop on and share about my blog/small business journey. It was the start of this year that I really “proclaimed” this as my business and really felt so proud of what I’d created. It’s been A LOT of work to say the least but it’s brought so so much joy, opportunities and relationships. I love creating and sharing here, but most of all I love encouraging and connecting with YOU! Thanks for being here and for reading this. I think today I all the sudden realized we were in November and the end of the year is near. How did that happen?! If you made it through this little love note, share something about you below.. maybe how you discovered my blog/Instagram or what a goal is that you have? Excited to read through those comments in the AM.
  • That day we found a marble staircase and @juliechristinephotography made a fart joke. She gets me.
  • Proud mama moment. Sophie came home from kindergarten one afternoon reciting this Remembrance Day poem over and over. It’s pretty cute! Turn your sound on and listen too 😊❤️
  • This picture makes me melt. I set the camera on self-timer and wanted to get some action shots of the three of us working on the "do try this at home" section of the @guinnessworldrecords book. When I looked back at the captures and I saw Ezras very content grin, I just couldn't even. Seriously no words. It reminded me that our kids don't care how we show up (myself pictured with a messy bun & PJs), it's the time we put in that is remembered. •

#ad Thanks to @guinnessworldrecords for encouraging us to attempt one of their 5 maker challenges and seeing how much fun the kids had blowing up balloons and learning to make balloon dogs. After a few tries I completed on in 2 minutes, might not be the fastest time in the books, but we saw some good progress from my first attempt ha! If your kids love creating, reading about all sorts of random and crazy accomplishments then head to the blog and check out what's new in the Guinness World Records 2019 edition. #GWR2019
