My partner just moved into the neighborhood, so we were excited to find a coffee shop nearby that we could walk to on the weekends. As soon as we walked in on Sunday 9/6, we were greeted by the barista who could barely say hi to us because her fingers were too busy fishing out food from her teeth. I was shocked to see her then wipe her hands on her apron, grab me a cup of coffee, make change, help another customer, then continue to eat behind the counter all in plain view of the customers...without ever once washing her hands! I was so turned off I will lobby to never go here again, even though the space is great with cool photos on the walls and Stumptown beans. I'm all for Portland hipster barista culture, but not the blatant disregard for common sanitary safety procedures. What a total let down for a promising neighborhood coffee place.
Pros: Cool residential area
Cons: Gross service
