Coffeehouse 5

Coffeehouse 5 lies on the corner of N Albina and Killingsworth, near Jefferson High and PCC Cascade. Furnished with dark woods, a well trod wood floor, chalkboard menus, and (currently) paintings of dogs. As mentioned in my little tidbit a few weeks ago, the coffee is fantastic! They carry Nuvrei pastries too, so you know they care about quality. My second visit included another machiatto, it again was quite delicious. Sweet with a hint of fruit (I forget what beans were used).

The neighborhood is not like the trendy Pearl, or even hipster 23rd. It shares much more in common with Belmont and Hawthorne. A family friend recently had her wedding at the park just a few blocks from Coffeehouse 5, it was gorgeous. The Acadian ballroom is near by and where the reception was held, it’s a great area though it does pretty clearly is missing that those higher tax bracket citizens.

Plus, I just learned they do occasional cuppings, so I’ll need to hang around for that.  Anyway, if you like the feel of places like Fresh Pot, Stumptown, or Vivace, you’ll like Coffeehouse 5. Check it out.
