Coffee Coffee

See my reviews of the best coffee my travels around the world.

Rimsky-Korsakoffee House
707 SE 12th Ave
Portland, OR
(503) 232-2640
Here a place with no sign outside to let you know, you just have to know that.
Rimsky's is one of those classic Portland spots, like Berbati's or Dot's; any Portland hipster worth his or her salt knows this tried and true hangout. Drop into Rimsky's for a cappuccino, Café Vienna, or Borgia (orange mocha) and one of their irresistible, calorie-dense desserts, like their chocolate raspberry fool. But there's oh so much more! A chocolatey cookie crust nestles rich espresso-orange cheesecake. Local rhubarb pairs with cinnamon beneath a brown sugar and oatmeal crumble. Nutella and hazelnuts make up a luscious chocolate tart. In the mood for ice cream? Grab a spoon, and dig into the Ship Goes to Pieces Against a Rock sundae (choco-mint ice cream, hot fudge, and whipped cream). And hit the treadmill next week.
