LET ME START WITH A PERSONAL CONFESSION: I'm somewhat of a coffee snob. I drink my coffee black, and I have tasted the finest brews from esoteric midnight cups on terraces in Paris to the raunchiest Russian roasts. BUT if there is one thing I have learned about coffee, it is that without atmosphere, company, and service, the quality is negligible. Although Mocha Momma's Good Coffee does not offer the Best coffee, the service is impeccable. The tall, dark-haired, and suspendered young man who served me was, to say the least, masterful; he was patient, friendly, and knowledgeable about different coffees, and when I did finally order my Tater Scramble and an extra dry cappuccino, he executed the order perfectly. Most baristas are unaware of the art of steamed milk -- particularly in cappuccinos -- but this man was enlightened. The microfoam which settled like a dense matzoball at the bottom of the drink sent me on my way from Mocha Momma's Good Coffee thoroughly pleased. Needless to say, this connoisseur will be back for another masterpiece.

I have fallen in love with this company's Franz Bake Shoppe Ginger Snoppe Cookies, and I do eat them. I get them at Albertson's on Aurora Avenue North in Seattle. They are delicious, but there is one BAD problem with them: the ingredients include palm oil. Palm oil comes from Borneo, to which orangutans are native. The growing number of palm tree plantations for harvesting that oil is pushing orangutans closer and closer to extinction as their native habitats are turned into plantations. PLEASE, Franz Bakery, use a different kind of plant oil in your recipe, to lower the threat to the orangutans. The more of the wonderful species out there we lose, the more damaged Earth's biosphere -- and our own chances of survival -- become. Thank you, Yael Dragwyla, Seattle, WA (email@example.com)
We went to voodoo doughnuts as out of towners to see what the hype is all about. It was easy to find with fast and friendly service. The shop and workers were clean and courteous, especially given that we had a list of many we wanted to try. Prices on some were a bit outrageous ($8 for the cocky-n-balls) but all in all, they're great doughnuts and not something wed find in the small town were from. from
We've been eating here at Cafe Allegro since I was in 1st grade... I'm turning 30 this next year. We used to eat there multiple times a year when I was a kid. But, as we grew older, it's a lot less often. The food is still good, but it doesn't really change. So, if it's your first time... you'll enjoy it. Try the calzones and enjoy coloring on the tables!
Walking into Mahri's Bakery & Deli is like walking into your memories of grandma's kitchen. Everything is old-fashioned home-style. You are greated by Mahri herself. The food is exceptional regardless of what you may order. It's a joy to be there. Take the kids so they too will have "taste good memories".
Best almond croissant and fresh full flavored macarons! I tried salted carmel + earl grey macarons - I dare to say it's better than lette, bouchon, and Jim patisserie in LA. They use local heart coffee which I love. I can't wait to try all flavors - this is a must visit in the city amongst bakeries.
Food was great. Met some friends on Saturday for dinner and Drinks. All was great! I had the clams. Damn it was good. We also got the caesar salad. Damn..it was good too. One of my friends got the Halibut. A little spendy $26. But, other than that, it was great. Heebs!!
I didn't know this place existed. One my first visit I had a wonderful lunch and latte to go. The food and coffee is excellent as are the prices. I have been back several times and will continue to go. The daily specials are always a treat. I can recommend this cafe to anyone.

it is worth the effort! Sweetness Bakery & Cafe is tucked away in a small mall in southeast Portland. The variety of baked goods is unique and very tasty. Their weekend brunch is simple, but worth checking out. A hidden gem, in a big city.
