In my experience it's rare to find a place with good coffee drinks also serving interesting food. Here we have both. We had clever breakfast items in the presence of a full coffee bar (manned by someone who looked like a proper coffee fanatic).

They make their own pastries:). Tasty. And coffee was good too. Friendly service. Stopped by when passing through Hood River. It's on the east end of town.

This is the little restaurant we stop at every time we pass through Hood River. Every meal, every time, is as good as it gets. The cook is pretty creative when it comes to sandwiches and soup. Great coffee.

Not only do they serve coffee, you can also get beer, sandwiches and pastry. Very convenient to downtown lodging and activities.
