When we went to Public Domain, it was right at the height of a coffee break. If you’ve ever been in a coffee shop in the middle of that kind of rush you know that there was a line and a wait. Public Domain is located on SW Broadway and Alder, which is basically the busiest part of downtown Portland. Once I got through the line to order our latte, espresso and a pastry, we were able to take a seat at the bar along the window.

After a few sips of their house roasts, it was pretty obvious why Public Domain was as busy as they were. The coffee was really, really good. It made me curious though as to where their delicious grinds come from. After doing a bit of research I found out that their shop is actually a culmination of the efforts of Coffee Bean International, one of Oregon’s first specialty coffee roasters. They started their business in Eugene, Oregon back in 1972 and after numerous awards and plenty of success, Public Domain opened their doors in 2010. So though you may have to wait in line for a while for a cup of their delicious coffee, it’s only a testament to their long standing dedication to serving up the best brew to the hard working people of the heart of the city.

    Gorgeous photos. It looks like an awesome place, i can’t get over that pastry–just makes my mouth water! It’s so great supporting local businesses. The Glass Castle is on my to-read list, do you love it? i’ve heard such great things about it.

    I have to say I soooooo miss the coffee shops and the art of going out to breakfast that is so popular on the west coast. I am from NY but moved to Seattle and lived there for a decade and then moved back to NY a few years ago. I have a friend who currently lives in Portland but who is moving back too. I will have to tell her to pop in there before she departs. Thanks for posting.

    my mouth’s also watering at the sight of that curly, crispy pastry – i can imagine the sticky, flaky shards with each bite! and all i have to eat at my desk is a banana.
