I absolutely love, love, love coffee. Seriously, my obsession started at a young age when I would sneak sips of my Grandma’s coffee. So, it’s no surprise that I also dig checking out new spots around town to grab a cup of joe. When the Fancy Team decided to meet at the new Arrow Coffeehouse in Portland, I was giddy – and that wasn’t just a side-effect of my aforementioned love of coffee. But, let me tell you, The Arrow Coffeehouse totally hits it out of the park! Amaze ambiance, totally fun staff, yummy food and of course delicious coffee! I also have to admit that I am a super sucker for ‘foam art’. I might be the only one who calls it that, but I love it when I get a cute design in the foam of my latte!
We also love supporting fellow small businesses, which is the foundation that The Arrow Coffeehouse is based on. They are a coffeehouse in the front and a commissary kitchen in the back, providing rentable commercial kitchen space to other local small businesses. Renters get an affordable spot to bake and cook their yummy goods, without having to shoulder the entire burden of rent. Plus, kitchen renters get to take advantage of the awesome foot traffic the coffee shop has to sell their creations either on site or through special pop-up opportunities. It’s so smart, and fun … and delicious! If you are a Portlander, you need to stop in to see this place and partake in their awesomeness!
