Coffee Shop: The Dane

The Dane Coffee Shop

The Dane Coffee Shop

The coffee shop of the month is a newer addition to the Whittier Heights neighborhood.  The Dane has been around for 5 months now and it’s offerings include Stumptown Coffee, a variety of beer on tap (and some cider), as well as a small in house farm-to-table pastry company called Salmonberry. Located in a large corner venue, the Dane is a mix of mid-century decor and spacious industrial style architecture.

It has high ceilings and a variety of tables styles from family style bench to bar stools, outdoor or couch seating by a kids toy zone. The atmosphere shifts in the afternoon and evening, as its focus becomes the 25 beers and ciders on tap and wine by the glass-  of course, there is always coffee to be enjoyed at any hour. All in all, the Dane has a very open atmosphere and is an excellent watering hole for casual gathering of friends or a place to hunker down and get some work done.

Coffee Shop: Vif Café and Wine Bar

Fremont Coffee and Wine

Fremont Coffee and Wine

This month’s coffee shop is Vif Café and Wine Bar, located in the Fremont neighborhood.  Embracing the trend of whole ingredients, they offer house made both almond and coconut milk which is seasoned with dates instead of a traditional refined sugar (although, should you choose to indulge in a sweeter treat, they also provide local honey or Theo chocolate as options as well).  They offer a traditional espresso bar for any frothy creations you could imagine, and serve hand pour drip coffee with a carefully curated option of beans from around the world for a wide range of flavor in every cup o’ joe.

As the name of the café indicates, they also offer wine by the glass or bottle, and for the connoisseurs out there- you can join their wine club and enjoy their monthly selections. In an airy and light filled building, the café offers pastries and daily soup and sandwich selections to be enjoyed indoors or on their patio seating area. Parking is easy as they have a full lot to the north of them, and a local CSA has a pick-up spot on the premise. Overall, you could swing through for a quick to-go cup of excellent coffee, or stop by for lunch with friends (with a glass of wine, of course). A pretty versatile spot with a distinctly local flavor.

Coffee Shop: Cloud City Coffee

The first neighborhood Coffee shop Cloud City Coffee in Maple Leaf. This one required very little research on my part as I frequent this fantastic local coffee shop almost weekly.  Cloud City is located on the top of the hill in Maple Leaf, close to Maple Leaf Reservoir Park.  This establishment offers large community style tables, couches, children’s area as well as a long, fun covered outdoor table for all who would like to relax and enjoy coffee, pastries or a hot lunches to order.  This coffee shop buzzes with the local feel of Maple Leaf and is worth a visit.
