Stopped in on an afternoon spent in the city. Too busy, not worth the hassle. Ordered a coffee and muffin, neither were bad, just nothing special.

From the wonderful and very cool young lady manager, to the fabulous small batch organic coffee and early morning snacks, you cannot find a more relaxing place to have your morning coffee. A must stop in downtown Portland! Enjoy

Very cool place with excellent coffee. We stopped here twice in one day while in Portland! Do yourself a favor and get an iced chai with a shot of espresso. So good!! We even got some beans to take home.

This visit was a fortuitous find. My daughters and I were looking for coffee and a snack. The coffee shop we first visited was closed, so we went to the Bard. The macchiato, iced chai, latte, salted chocolate cookie, and oatmeal raisin trail mix cookies...More
