Our coffee cups runneth over in Northeast Portland. Most neighborhoods have not one, but several excellent coffee shops. Here’s the list.
Northeast Portland is a dynamic quadrant with over a dozen quirky, cool, thriving neighborhoods.
The neighborhood dynamic is alive and well in Portland. And part of that dynamic is the neighborhood coffee shop.
The local coffee shop is where we hang with friends, check email, or simply recharge.
Portland’s coffee shops are like neighborhood living rooms–some of them chic, trendy, and energizing, and some of them funky, well worn, and laid back. We like both vibes–depending on the day and the mood.

32+ Northeast Portland Coffee Shops by Neighborhood
Following is the list of Northeast Portland coffee shops that we’ve either visited or plan to visit in the near future. Many of these caffeinated enclaves are so stellar that they’re now in our regular rotation. And we’ll update this list as new coffee shops emerge.
The ☕ symbol indicates that we downed a cup or two (or three) of coffee at the indicated coffee shop. (We’ll get to them all eventually.)
The ? symbol indicates that we especially love the indicated coffee shop. It’s the best-of-the-best. And for us that means thoughtfully sourced, small batch, locally roasted coffee; top-notch baristas; good vibe, and a perfectly executed 6-ounce cappuccino.
(Peet’s and Stumptown coffee roasters are two exceptions. They’re not small-batch roasters these days, but nonetheless are fundamental to the history and trajectory of coffee culture in Portland.)
