I drove by your coffee shop in Beaverton and decided to drop in for the first time. I parked next to the shop and got out of my car. I was immediately enveloped with cigar and cigarette smoke. It looked like I was in a forest fire as

Ava's used to be a nice place. It had good decor, yummy pastries, patio seating with fire pit and water feature, friendly service and OPEN 24 HOURS. That last one is, I think, still operative and the one good feature.

I've recently discovered Ava's for myself when I was in need of a coffee house open past 11pm. I've been going for a few weeks now and I'm fairly impressed.

Pros:
1. Great atmosphere, from the exterior landscaping and architecture to the seating and decor inside.

2. Good selection of drinks. You won't find as many things on the menu as some places, but they have all the basics and enough specialty mochas to rotate your drinks if you like. The whole leaf tea is also a welcome change from the usual Tazo teabags at most places.

3. Great food. If you're looking for a pastry with your tea/coffee, this is a great place to get it. Fresh baked and not the pre-packaged, assembly line feel and taste of say, Starbucks pastries.

4. Live music on the weekends. Bring friends or a date!

Cons:

1. Expensive. Although to be fair, their prices aren't any worse (even better in some cases) than say, Starbucks. And the quality of everything is very good.

2. Slow. If you're looking for a quick latte to go, this is the wrong place to stop. I'm not sure if this is because they take time to do things right (I've only had espresso here a couple of times, and was more into absorbing the atmosphere), or if the baristas just are experienced enough to get a drink out quickly. If you're coming for a mocha/latte (instead of regular coffee or tea) it is better to have some time to kill. Plus, if you're coming here you really should take a chair and enjoy the atmosphere anyway.

3. Busy. Sometimes....well, maybe a lot of times depending on when you stop, you will need to wait for a seat, as Ava's can get pretty busy in the evening at least. But if that's the worst con a place has, then that says a lot about the quality of the place imo.

4. Parking is minimal....more a function of location than anything else. Night visits are better because the curbside parking is much clearer.

5. Waistline.....I find myself ordering more tea now, because too many dark chocolate mochas paired with those pastries (mmmm, Napoleon) will do a number on your waist and fast.

You can tell they put in a lot of time making the outside as enjoyable as possible. It is cold a lot in Oregon and I love how they put heat lamps outside so smokers can stay warm in the winter.
Not many places are open 24 hours in beaverton which is why I think this place is more popular then it really should be.
They have great dark chocolate mochas and smoothies.

Pros: Chicken Rustica Sandwich, outside area, 24 hours

Cons: Lots of Cops, price, and parking

They make the best mochas a great atmosphere with a gas fireplace, waterfalls, and heaters outdoors.

Where do I begin? I like coffee that actually tastes like coffee. Ava has the weakest beaverages I have ever tasted. I had to go back and ask the barista if she really put espresso in it. Not to mention the lecture she gave my husband on how he should get his drink. We didn't ask for any suggestions. I was under the impression that when you are paying, you can have your drink the way you want it.

There are some good baristas around but not at Ava. This lady especially stinks. She should find a new job. The others aren't really worth mentioning. I find it annoying when people who work at coffee shops act like they are so freaking important. Just make my drink and spare me the lesson.

The food is ok but if you want a good cup of coffee don't go here. The price is too high for some crap in a cup.

This place is just comfortable. It's the kind of place I could hang out for a long time, in their cozy chairs and free wi-fi. They also have outdoor seating and a firepit to encourage the outside in chillier weather. You look around and you see lots of people just hanging out enjoying the company of food, friends and conversation, making it an ideal place to hook-up with a friend over a coffee, in the middle of the day. My personal favorite is the 16 oz mocha with dark chocolate and whip cream. The sandwiches are delicious. The pastries are even better. Visit with an old friend and tell them you'll meet them at Ava's.

The Americano was good.

★★★★☆

The Americano was good.

Pros: ambiance is quite nice

Cons: service was so-so

.

The products are average, sometimes above-average, however I can't say the same about the service. The employees are a bunch of young kids, probably their first jobs, and their inexperience shows. Most of them have unrefined skills in customer services, they are easily distracted, they can't handle too many customers, and they are overall very slow. They have no idea how to prioritize orders, can't communicate with one another, and are totally disorganized. Management obviously spent a significant amount of money on the real-estate. If they were smart, they'd budget for higher wages and spring for better people. Ultimately, the weak staff and unbearable wait-time aren't worth the cup of coffee.

I have yet to either pass by or walk into Ava Roasteria when it isn't packed full of people. The coffee is good. I have to say that my ceasar salad was uninspired. The ambiance is really nice and the service is quite good. I would recommend a visit to see what you think.

I don't know what you people are talking about. Ava is a great cafe. The only negative things I have to say about the place is the lack of parking (what can they do, though? It's in a busy location on a small lot) and it's somewhat pricey.
The coffee is always good when I go there. Their employees are great. It may take a while to get your food simply because they are ALWAYS busy. Isn't that a good sign? If you want fast food, head to the Dairy Queen down the street. Ava has great atmosphere. I do all of my homework and papers there, and yes, it is loud sometimes, but that's what headphones are for. If you go on a friday or saturday night, EXPECT it to be busy. But usually during the week (before 6 or so) it's peaceful enough to accomplish a great deal without headphones. The wi-fi is super handy as well.
And also, if you're not up for a big night of partying in town on weekends, like I said, Ava is ALWAYS busy. There's always a lot of people on weekends which is nice if you want some place to hang out that isn't a bar. The downside to that: you usually have to sit outside if you get there too late. The upside to that: there are heaters outside over some of the tables if it's cold.
It's a great place. The coffee is good and so are the people. Since it's my favorite cafe in Portland (that's saying a lot, we have a lot of good ones), I say give it another shot...
PS. I don't know what religious feel anyone is talking about. I don't practice any religion & I don't feel like an outcast when I'm there. There's nothing religious at all about the place? Maybe its just because there are older people who freqent the cafe. Speaking of that, Ava caters to a really diverse crowd. You can find anyone from 15 to 50 there at any given time. That's another thing that's so great about it: it's not a hipster cafe (yet).

Pros: people, atmophere, coffee, food, the likelihood of meeting someone interesting to talk to

Cons: a little pricey

I go to Ava a lot - they make hot chocolate using real belgian chocolate and three flavors (dark, milk, or white). I will go out of my way to get a hot chocolate from there instead of starbucks. Parking is very limited but the chocolate is worth the inconvenience.

AVA Roasteria is a relatively new coffee shop in down town Beaverton. Parking is problematic but the beverages are well worth it. And the people who work there know their coffee. If you want something that is not listed on the board, just ask. For sure, they'll know how to make it.

I've given this place three tries and have been extremely disappointed every time. I think the owners spent so much time and money making the place look gorgeous (it really is aesthetically pleasing) that they forgot they were in the restaurant business. I've never had a good cup of coffee here and they even screwed up my Chai. How hard is Chai? It's equal parts milk and Chai concentrate! Customer service here is non-existent.

The last straw for me was today when I went in with my 10-month old daughter to pick up a sandwich to take to the park and it took 20 minutes to get my food. They didn't start making our food until 10 minutes after we ordered! I had the Greek platter and it did taste very good. Not worth the frustration, though.

Whatever the other reviewer said about this being a Christian place, I saw no evidence of that at all. Met up with a friend here the other day, and as an atheist, I did not see anything that nearly evoked the thought that they "might as well place a cross over the front door."

It's really noisy, so probably not the best place to study or work, and the food is a bit pricey for what you get. There is only street parking unless you're staying 15 minutes or less. But the atmosphere is nice, and the outdoor patio area is very well done, with some great water features. They also have a larger soup, salad, sandwich, and dessert selection than your typical Starbucks coffee shop.

This is completely terrible. Should be a cafe and bar instead. Warning, this place is religious too, they might as well put a cross over the front door. If you go here, sit outside and bring your own coffee.
