Who Brews for You? Barista Profile #4: Kelly G.

I know a lot of you have been waiting to see a profile on Kelly, our longest tenured barista. She has been with us nearly three years, and has lit up the place with her megawatt smile, charm, and wit ever since (and no, she did not pay me to say that). If you don’t […]

For Your Listening Pleasure

Sundays around here just got a little bit better. About a month ago, Woodlawn resident and fiddle player Michael Durkan decided to give his roommates a break (he practices, alone and with bandmates A LOT), by bringing his fiddle up here. He set up shop on our patio, hoping not to disturb anyone. It only […]

Hot town, summer in the city 
 Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty 
 Been down, isn’t it a pity

Berry Season Has Begun!

  Thanks to a warm spring, Oregon and Washington strawberries are a little early this year. For us that means lots and lots of strawberry treats on the menu. Our purveyor, Polar Farm in Washington, provides us with the juiciest berries – Hood, Tillamook, and Puget varieties. We’re mixing them into our gluten free coconut, orange […]

Our salute to Spring!

“O Rhubarb! My Rhubarb! Rise up and hear the bells.” I have been yodeling this around the around the shop these days. Walt Whitman of course did not intend for his poetry to be compared to the long awaited arrival of Spring field rhubarb, alas it is here. The Tempestuous Spring weather may drive our […]

For Josh, Our Friend

So, Josh may have beat us to the punch, but we still have a couple of things we’d like to say about him as he readies himself to start a new life back in the old south. And blog readers, this will probably be the last time you get two blog entries so close together. […]

Life is Sweet on Dekum Street

  As I transition out of Woodlawn Coffee & Pastry, I wanted to write a bit of their story. I also wanted to share some of mine, which is all sort of tangled up within this place. I think all good relationships get tangled, somehow. But anyways, here we go: I started at Woodlawn C&P […]
