Stumptown coffee is served here, ok, so go. No really, this is the quintessential corner cafe. Nondescript, cozy, and most importantly great food and great coffee. I had heard about this little cafe from a few different people. I finally got a chance to go check it out. I had never been into this part of Portland, didn't realize it existed, but it's worth going out there just for the breakfast, and maybe a little stroll down the streets that make you feel like you've gone back in time to a little neighborhood town.
John Street Cafe is not a very big restaurant so a party of four is probably the biggest party I would bring here. I'm sure they would do there best to accommodate more but you'll probably take up half the restaurant. The coffee refills were a little lacking but it was pretty busy the morning we went. We were greeted promptly when we came in and offered some coffee while we waited for a table. My husband and I split an omelet as we usually do and we both left satisfied. The pancakes looked like they could have fed all four of us. The atmosphere was a little noisy but that's to be expected in such a small room filled with people. There were plenty of people waiting when we left so I would get here early.
