Today’s Tip: Crema coffee shop in Portland, Oregon
Portland is nearly synonymous with coffee and Crema is one of my favorite coffee shops in the city.
With a silver laptop sitting on each honey colored wooden table, and an artfully bearded or bespeckled face peeking out from behind each glowing screen, it could feel pretentious in this place.
But there is no snooty attitude to be found. Just friendly, capable, service, perfectly pulled espresso and good food.
They serve a selection of soups, salads and sandwiches, but more importantly. The pastries are TO DIE FOR . They have croissants, cinnamon rolls, scones, tarts, cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and so many more delights in the beautiful pastry case, but the powdered sugar topped sticky vanilla roll is the one to beat. That and an Americano and I am in Pacific Northwest coffee shop heaven. And they have outdoor seating too.
