My wife and I were on vacation in Eugene, Oregon for a few days not long back. We were staying with my wife’s son and his girlfriend at their townhouse beside the beautiful Willamette River. As always we were looking for a good coffee shop to get a couple of morning lattes to kickstart our day and my wife’s son recommended this place. It’s a beautiful 2 story historic house with lots of tall trees providing shade and creating a pretty landscape. And by the looks very popular with the locals.
We popped in with my wife’s son one morning and ordered 2 hot Lattes with hazelnut syrup + a Kombucha at the service counter. They use Stumptown Coffee Roasters coffee which we observed was very popular at other locations around Oregon. We chose to sit outside in the beautiful courtyard. Our Lattes were very well made and tasted quite good hence the importance of an upscale espresso machine and a trained barista. We decided to come back for lunch on our final day in Eugene.
It was pretty busy when we lined up at the service counter around midday to place our order for 2 hot Lattes, a Ham Panini and a BLT with bowls of fresh fruit. We again decided to sit at a table in the shaded front courtyard. It was great to relax with our well made lattes before the drive back to Portland airport. Our grilled sandwiches & bowls of fresh fruit made for a delicious healthy start to the rest of our day. One of the highlights of our stay in beautiful Eugene !
