Great art this month!

A good little cafe with decent coffee and service. If you avoid the yuppies then you can have an interesting conversation with the Baristas and soak in the atmosphere. It's a tiny rebel spot in the world of REI and pearlites with it's lime green walls and cheap beer.

Maybe the folks who work there like their music loud, but that is part of the experience. And it sure beats satellite radio and the drone of mainstream hits.

For the most part my experiences at Urban Grind have been positive. Occasionally the Baristas get moody, but I would rather have an human serving me than a robot.

I like that the Urban Grind employees have personalities.

If you want to know the hours... it is: M-F 6am-8pm and 7am -8pm on weekends.

And the art this month is all from the employees. In the little back secret room is a great collection of photos from a PNCA graduate dealing with Craigslist Casual Encounters. The main floor is a group of stark black and white travel photographs. And near the sofas are a group of collage photographs.

I WISH it were a better place to study

I have come to Urban Grind maybe 20 times to have some coffee and study/work/write. It is close to where I live and has internet access, good food options and great cofffee..... unfortunately, the music they play makes it IMPOSSIBLE TO THINK. Swanky blues, upbeat surfer music, house/techno.... all played loudly enough that I can't block it out with my headphones or even earplugs. Meaning, I can't get S&%! done...... the entire reason I came. Maybe 18 of the 20 times, I've left after an hour or so, without ordering lunch/dinner as planned, because the music was driving me insane. Instead I ended up going home or to another cafe. I understand that while working at a cafe you might want to listen to this type of music, at this volume...... but as a customer who comes in to try to work, I DON'T. I WISH WISH WISH they would change this, because I'd love to come here more often and stay longer/order more/get more done!

this citysearch site is worthless if.... doesn't include the hours the shop is open.
That is why I - and many others - increasingly use citysearch and the wider web: we're looking for useful information, for example hours of operation.

As for Urban Grind, I love it. Best coffee shop in Portland.
But this site helps me 0% if I don't know what time they open.

The best coffee in a city known for its Jo!

When was the last time you saw a barrista dump a shot and start over because it ""didn't pour right""? (Yeah, I'm looking at YOU Starbucks!) That's the attention to quality that the good people at Urban Grind put into their work. I like my mud strong but firm and these people know how to serve it up without the acidity that reminds you of when you licked a battery on a dare (oh c'mon! I'm not the only one!). Honestly, the best Americanos I've ever had.

Excellent coffee, excellent atmosphere, excellent service

Urban Grind is the best coffeehouse I've been to here in Portland. Their coffee is excellent- there's very few places that know how to make a mocha that isn't cloyingly sweet, Urban Grind's is just perfect. The food is usually very good, especially their hearty breakfast and roast beef panini. The atmosphere is cosy, and the staff is hella friendly. Highly recommended.

You Can Smile At 6 A.M. ? More Power To You.

Even at the most horrifically early hours, the Urban Grind employees have never failed to give me a friendly good morning. They know the regulars by name and order, and even in the weird demographic of the Pearl District (yuppies, nouveau bohemians, graphic designers, REI shoppers, etc.) they manage to promote a sense of camaraderie and comfort.
Try the savory tarts as a nice alternative to a bagel's dough-overload, and don't hesistate to taste the pastries; like all Urban Grind's food, they're made locally by eco-conscious companies.
