Oh my gosh, this is an unforgettable place! Our large group came for dessert. Thankfully, someone knew where to go because it wasn't exactly marked. It got busier and busier as the night went on. Quirky and eclectic old house. We sat at one of...More

Coffee, Tea, & one boatload of a banana split! This old house retrofitted into a low key, dim lit, dessert cafe is open late night and usually pretty busy, offering a self seating semi sort of nonchalant service characteristic of Portland. The menu consists of...More

Let me start of by saying that the waitstaff here was excellent. The service was a little slow, but our server made up for that with wit! The menu is simple: Coffees and Desserts. The "Ship Goes to Pieces Against a Rock" was delicious! It's...More

Rimsky-Korsakoffee -- even the name is charming! It is one of the best and quirkiest coffee shops anywhere. There is live music too. The coffee is good and the desserts are gorgeous. We went on weekday evening and there was a queue outside to get...More

We stopped the Rimsky-Koraskoffee House for dessert. We had the raspberry fool and the hot fudge sundae. Both were very good. The house is great! It is an old Victorian house with beautiful wood. Really enjoyed it!

We opted out of dessert at a vegan restaurant and came here instead. Good call. Raspberry fool, blackberry cobbler and the ginger cake were all great!

Was empty but wait for seating was long. Maitre de / waiter was odd, but turned out to be odd-friendly. Tea was excellent. Decor was... strange. Classical background music. Next time I'd bring a game to play.

This place is so cool. The desserts and coffee are awesome, and well worth the visit. But the decor is really outstanding. Everything is decorated in Victorian style - and there are a few surprises in store as well. The wait staff is also fantastic.

The food and atmosphere was great with live music in the background. The mexican mocha taste like it was from starbuck and the fudge brownie was just perfect. The bathroom was another story. They did such a good job on the decoration. It was a...More
