Eat and drink like a local or dine all over the world
Our two Portland Coffee Roasters cafés serve organic coffee, beverages, fresh bakery goods, assorted oatmeal breakfasts, yogurt, and sandwiches. And it doesn’t get more Portland than the Stir Bistro and Lounge, a full-service restaurant with a menu focused exclusively on local flavors and specialties. If you like microbrews, Oregon wine, or homegrown spirits - Stir has it! For heartier appetites, our other restaurant offerings range from delicious burgers to mouth-watering pizza or chicken tenders, all made to satisfy. Enjoy!
