I love Kobos. I've been going since the 70's when it was in John's landing. The black & white is my favorite, my partner likes the pioneer blend. It's just been sold so I don't know what that means for the future, but if they keep the same roast I can assure you that the coffe is a good Portland... More

Got a Latte and a Cappuccino. Very nice! Also bought a gluten free biscotti, which were delicious! Very convenient to our hotel (sorry great hotel, but we don't drink hotel coffee, anywhere!).

Kobos was walking distance from the unit we rented and wanted a great cup of coffee. Unfortunately Kobos didn't fit the bill. I ordered a nonfat latte and hot chocolate. The coffee needed an extra shot to compare to most lattes I'm used to. I did like browsing the kitchen appliances and supplies while waiting for my coffee.

Kobos is what coffee should taste like. It doesn't douse your drink with an overload of sugar like other places. They always have a special going on and they have a great selection of loose tea. I love walking around the shop looking at the items they have to purchase and the people who work here are awesome!

The cafe au lait was delicious as were the scones. There is a variety of kitchen ware especially for tea and coffee. I got a pointed tea strainer...I never saw one before. The shop has many useful and novel items. There is also a front patio.

Stopped in on a rainy morning because I wasn't pleased with the coffee at our hotel and Kobo's didn't disappoint me. The coffee was fresh with good flavor and the person working the counter was friendly and quick to service my order. We stopped in again and bought a couple of gift items. Good coffee!

Kobos has great coffee at good prices. Half coffee shop/half kitchen store makes for a good combo. You can sit at tables or wander the shop while sipping the delicious coffee. The staff is extremely friendly. It is located on Vaughn St only a block from the north end of the NW 23rd avenue shopping area. They have parking for... More
