we were originally going to stop in the cafe and take some breakfast to go, but the place is cozy and welcoming so we decided to stay instead. the bagels are fresh and the breakfast sandwiches are tasty too. we were just visiting in town, but if I lived near here, I'd return....

I thought I'd stop in for a sandwich and decided on a turkey panini. The service was good, the atmosphere was collegial...think campus coffee shop but for a more mixed population. I took a sit at the corner window to watch the park. When my food came, I was pleased to see that it came with a scoop of potato... More

My husband and I are foodies! The bagels here are definitely fresh and so soft. Yummy sandwiches, coffee, and best iced tea I've had! Love the environment and it's very clean!

Nice place, good coffee & food, nice selection. Friendly staff. Free wifi. I had the havarti and turkey panini. It was great. My wife's salad was fresh. So you have good food in a convivial atmosphere. Nothing to write home about but certainly delicious.

I didn't feel that Portland was a welcoming city but the Park Avenue Café was a nice break from the hustle/bustle. It is next to Portland State University and so it had a nice university feel to it. Food was good and the drinks were typical coffee house drinks. Again, the atmosphere was made it an oasis from the rest... More

This was great spot to have lunch and hang out while our son was busy at a meeting. My wife and each ordered the chili and coffee. The chili was delicious and was served with two slices of crusty, chewy baguette. The Illy coffee cup was huge and the coffee was hot and robust. We were able to wait over... More

We were on our way to the Farmer's Market and decided to stop for a drink. The person behind the counter taking orders was remarkably friendly. I had a chai tea and my cousin had coffee. Both were very good and the atmosphere was so comfortable that we stayed and chatted for quite a while before moving on to the... More
