Local Coffee Recommendations – West End 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 great coffee spots near our CENTRL Office West End 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.
1123 SW Washington St, Portland OR 97205
Portland is known for being a coffee town, and for good reason. If you’re looking to kickstart your day, stop into Heart for a quick espresso and a delicious pistachio rose croissant. Their honey cardamom latte is also amazing. They source fresh ingredients while combining interesting flavors even on the most basic breakfast items. We also love their minimalist chic decor which includes a unique touch of custom artwork.
537 SW 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97205
A gem of a coffee roaster, and only a two minute walk from our West End location. Never Coffee offers uniquely flavored lattes to go along with great artisan coffees. Unlike most flavored lattes, theirs have complexity of flavor without being too sweet. We especially like the Pop latte (matcha with tart cherries and lime) and the Yuzu & Salt latte. The space is inviting and comfortable, and the baristas are super friendly and informative.
Case Study Coffee
802 SW 10th Ave, Portland, OR 97205
This is one of our favorite coffee houses in Portland. The windows are big, the ambience is very calming, and their rotating artwork on the walls is always fun to check out. The baristas are welcoming and knowledgeable, and the drinks are always crafted perfectly and proportionally. All of their coffees are top notch, and the pastries are very good (try the spinach and feta muffin). Definitely give the Jasmine matcha latte a try.
Here at CENTRL, we believe supporting local businesses is more important than ever, which is why we encourage you to support our neighbors here in the West End.
