Seattle Coffeehouse Recommendation
- RosebudSMB Jun 26, 2007 12:27 PM
Portlander staying overnight at the Fairmont Olympic looking for a coffeehouse recommendation. Walking or riding public transportation distance preferably. I need wi-fi and would love a spot that is more frequented by locals vs. tourists. Eclectic is cool, great beans a must. I do not visit chain stores. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
FYI, here is my food itinerary :
Shuckers before the game tonight (it's easy and in the hotel)
Havana after the game
Coffeeshop tomorrow morning
Salumi for lunch
Mid-afternoon is still open...
Probably heading back to P-town before dinner.
Cherry St Coffeehouse brewed black Coffee is my habit
(the have pastries and light lunches, too)
103 Cherry (First & Cherry)
808 3rd Avenue (3rd & marion)
2121 First Avenue (Belltown)
2719 First Avenue (First & Clay)
Shuckers for Oysters, crabmelt
go to Salumi early (11:00) or late >2:00
I don't know if they have wi-fi but Belle Epicurean in your hotel has fantastic pastry's. Their ham and cheese "buns" are great.
When you're at Shuckers, be sure to try the house smoked oysters. Yum.
Nice... I've been meaning to check that exhibit out as I'm a member of PAM. Let's see, Higgins is a classic PDX restaurant that's open for lunch and dinner and is about 2 - 3 blocks from the museum. A very easy walk. http://higgins.ypguides.net/page/o30h.... As a James Beard Award Winner in 2001, Boulet's place at the Heathman Hotel is directly in front of the PAM (http://www.heathmanhotel.com/dining/r...). They're open for lunch and dinner as well. Tell me a little more about what you're looking for and I can help you out more. Lunch? Dinner? Casual, ethnic...? I hope you have a great time in PDX!
