It's decked out with enough couches, chairs and pillows that you'll think you walked into a palace, and enough bookshelves that you'll think you walked into a library . . . Oh, wait! You did! This cafe's located in the old Hollywood library building, and it's a very nice space, managing to be large and wide and still feel potentially intimate.
Coffee drinks here are well-made, with house-whipped cream available on request, and they have both business-lunch items and dessert items -- including fancy cakes and a few vegan options, like many of Portland's fine establishments do.
Everything is reasonably priced. The ambiance is casual in the afternoons and I'm told they have shows here in the evenings sometimes.
