Oh, really really good news. There is finally a coffee shop, spitting distance from my house. A resident in my building was moving out recently and she said, "I just need to be somewhere, you know, where I can walk to a coffee shop...." It's true. That matters. And this place just opened up where I always ride my bike out to the main street - Bakery Bar. I guess they have another location in southeast, but boy am I glad to see them up here! Yum yum yum. They have Stumptown coffee too. Bonus.
