Portland’s Off the Waffle, as the name implies, makes amazing waffles, however thanks to recent consideration for an upcoming award, the local eatery may gain national exposure for what happens after you eat there.
That’s right. Off the Waffle is in the running as a finalist for 2017’s America’s Best Restroom contest.
Portland loves its coffee. From Boyd Coffee Company and Stumptown Coffee Roasters to Starbucks and Tully’s and everything in-between, you better not get between a Stumptowner and their cup of joe lest you want to endure limitless angry, whiny hipster wrath (and that’s just in our offices)!
But, with nearly 3,000 coffee shops in the metro area to pick from (Holy java! That’s a lot of black tar!), which ones are Portlanders’ favorites and who has the best brew?
Portland’s coffee scene maintains a huge reputation throughout the country (and the world) for excellent, locally-owned roasters and brewers of some of the best coffee you can drink.
Unfortunately, with success comes opportunity, and outside business interests have started scooping up our local shops, making them parts of their conglomerates (witness the purchase of Stumptown Coffee back in 2011).
Boyd Coffee Company, what might be Portland’s oldest coffee roaster – it was founded in 1900, announced on August 21, 2017 that they will be acquired by Farmer Brothers (NASDAQ: FARM), a publicly-traded firm.
Portland and Seattle are both becoming renowned the world over for their diversity in food. Whether it’s Seattle’s eclectic chefs or Portland’s homegrown bacon and eggs, both cities have a lot to offer. So, in Sunset Magazine’s recent comparo – who wins?
We’re big fans of Stumptown Coffee Roasters here at Stumped in Stumptown. Hey, when the sky’s as gray as it gets in Portland, everyone needs a pick-me-up.
Stumptown Coffee developed a reputation for seriously good beans over the last decade, and Portlanders reveled in its anti-establishment approach to… erm… growing coffee beans.
Now, the news just broke that Stumptown Coffee Roasters has been sold to a private firm.
