I drank a lot of acidic espresso around downtown Portland before I finally found this lovely cafe. The original owner opened TorreFazione (I've been to one in Italy) and they serve their espresso Italian style, just the way I love. Went back the next morning,...More

I liked the look of the place and found the coffee and snacks delicious. The decor is Italian and nicely arranged. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Good service here.

Caffe Umbria is a popular meeting spot. The macchiatos and cappuccinos are excellent; the service particularly attentive.

Caffe Umbria does capture the proper Italian roast and flavors of great espresso. The crema on even ristrettos is nice, and the flavor profiles mild but assertive. The cappuccino was likewise flavorful, with correctly steamed milk. The only challenge is that the cups are American-sized,...More
