Good Coffee Brewing in Second SE Portland Shop

Coffee and pastries in a beautiful space, sans 'tude.


Just two short months ago we brought you news of Nick and Sam Purvis' new coffee shop Good Coffee on SE Division. The brothers behind Prettyman's General cafe/bar knocked it out of the park with a beautiful, high-design space, warm service, and, of course, good coffee from the likes of local roasters Coava, Heart, and Roseline.

Late last week, they did it again, opening a second location in the new East 12th Lofts building at SE 12th and SE Salmon.

As with the Division spot, the space is beautiful and light-filled, comfortable without being the least bit frumpy (the canvas and leather chairs are covet-worthy), and exceedingly friendly. The pastry case is similarly filled with treats from Frice Pastry and simple grab-and-go baguette sandwiches from Lardo. They're working on getting sourdough bread and custom spreads from Frice in order to offer a selection of warm toast.

Aside from teas by San Francisco's Song Tea & Ceramics and beans from Michigan's Madcap roasters, most of the products used are local. The chai is the stellar, spicy Tanglewood from Either/Or cafe in Sellwood, vanilla syrup comes from Commissary and the chocolate for the mochas comes from Cocanu.

Good Coffee: SE 12th and SE Salmon, Portland. Hours: 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. daily
