I came in wearing a suit and they asked me to leave after serving me. Although they didn't give a reason (other than the vague accusation that I was making other customers "uncomfortable") I strongly suspect that the fact that I had a suit on made me some kind of "class enemy" oppressor. Although they had no problem with accepting my money.

I have lived in this neighborhood for years and every time I give this place another chance, I have a terrible experience!! The food is awful but nowhere near as bad as their anarchist staff. They take pride in their anger and take it out

The rudest, angriest staff you'll ever see. The food is as disgusting as their attitudes. Avoid at all costs!

This place bills it self as a "safe place" to have coffee, enjoy music, ect. That may be what they say but that is not what they practice. If you don't fit into there small mold of what is "good" you will feel like a leper and may be asked to leave. Going in there in a suit after work makes you a mark for glares. Above that, food and coffee are blah at best. Save yourself the pain and waste of money and go to a more welcoming cafe. You and everyone else will thank you

Pros: None

Cons: Everything

These are the guys who kicked out a cop who stopped in for a cup of coffee. This is despite their alleged "Tolerance Policy"

"We strive to eliminate any oppressive actions, behaviors, and language in this space. These include, but are not limited to, racism, sexism, ageism, sizeism, classism, ableism, transphobia and heterosexism. We want this to be a comfortable space for everyone."

Obviously, that's a lie.

Pros: Excellent vegan menu

Cons: Horrible atmosphere to eat it in

.

If they don't like the way you look, they will take your money first, THEN tell you to leave. Bigots.

There is only one reason you would go here. You are a criminal. Terrible food, filthy place with filthy people. I should have opened my eyes before I walked into that place cause if I had, I wouldn't. Gave me wrong change intentionally and one sip of the soy latte and I was done. The remainder of my order went into the garbage, right where this place belongs.

Pros: can buy drugs there

Cons: hepatitus, diarrhea, theivery

If they don't like the way you look, they'll take your money, THEN tell you to leave. Then, they'll go on their Facebook page and try to brag about their freedom, but they have forgotten that freedom was bought and paid for by America's heroes and would be gone in a flash without them.

Pros: Great place to hide if you're a criminal

Cons: Bigots

.

First, I ate there several months ago and would never eat the food there again. The staff were not very clean looking and my warm dish was barely luke-warm! Secondly, in a more recent event that made it to print, the management proved to be very bigoted and rude. This makes for a no-win, no-way-in-hell would I return or recommend this arm pit to anyone situation.

Pros: Great place to be if you want to be around criminals

Cons: Dirty staff, bigoted management, cold food

The food is horrible. the employees don't wash their hands. I will never eat here or recommend it to anyone. You would be wise to avoid this place.

Pros: Friendly to criminals

Cons: Will refuse service or kick you out if they don't like you

.

The food is alright, good if you're really looking for vegan. However be warned the service regularly leaves you wanting just a little more. Don't bother ordering food on a night that they're having any live music. We once waited an hour for a bagel.... Yes, the place was packed, because there was a show happening, but maybe they should've had more than 2 people working. I'd offer to help wash dishes, but then we'd be in a Commie establishment as opposed to an anarchist one....

Their food is freshly prepared when you order. They give you large portions and it's all vegan. They are employee owned and operated which makes it very cool and different.

They have indoor tables and couches and a bunch of picnic tables outside. Thier soup was amazing, I hyad the african peanut soup, YUM..... I Thier coffee was also amazing and everytime I have been there the food and service has been consistent. This place is very Portland!
