Local Coffee Recommendations – Eastside Portland

We know how important coffee can be for kickstarting a day, which is why CENTRL provides complimentary, high-quality coffee for all of our members.

Sometimes, though, you want to venture out to a local coffee shop for anything from a cappuccino to a cortado. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of coffee spots near our CENTRL Office Eastside location to get your morning (or afternoon) caffeine fix.

To help you sift through all of the great coffee options we have nearby, here are three locally owned spots that we think you’ll like.


111 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR 97232
COSUBE opened in 2016, but started in Manzanita, OR in the late 80’s when owner and Portland native, Alex Morris, first learned how to surf. An Eastside fixture, COSUBE combines a cafe, a clothing store, a surf shop. We love their Coava coffee, and they also serve Chamellia Tea and all your favorite Oregon beers and wines.

Crema Coffee

2728 SE Ankeny St, Portland, OR 97214
Established in 2004, Crema Coffee offers delicious artisan coffee, and handcrafted baked goods, sandwiches under one roof. Their coffees and teas are locally sourced and their espresso drinks are prepared by specially trained baristas. Foodwise, they have something for everyone — soups, a kickstarter breakfast, quiches, galettes, pastries, rolls, etc…Definitely give their Caprese panini a try!

Happy Cup Coffee Bar

555 NE Couch St, Portland, OR 97232
Ever had a Corazon, an orange-infused mocha? If not, try one hot for the full experience. Trust us, it’s amazing! In addition to making great coffee, Happy Cup’s mission, to offer employment at competitive wages to adults with disabilities in our local community, is one we are proud to support.



At CENTRL, we believe supporting local businesses is more important than ever, which is why we encourage you to support our neighbors here on the Eastside. And whether you are looking for the perfect macchiato, taco, or a spot to watch the game after work, always feel free to ask our staff for a recommendation. We’re here to help!
