I used to live in Montreal, and moved to PDX four years ago. Just started a job in the same part of town as half n half, so I pop in for morning eats. Much to my surprise, they've got montreal-style bagels, which are a completely different beast than the big, bready things known by most U.S. standards. This find has made me so happy, and makes me feel at home. Not to mention that the folks who work there are super kind and play good morning music. Keep it up!

Pros: great bagels, great zines...

Cons: none that I've seen so far

This is a really nice place. It's kitschy and fun, with zines covering the walls and rotating wall displays. The sandwiches are good, reasonably priced, and are always made in interesting combinations. The coffee is also excellent. I think what keeps me coming back though is the staff. They're super friendly, despite being incredibly hip.

I am so disappointed! I recently ordered an Americano w/ soy and the soy was spoiled and old. So gross. I couldn't understand what I was tasting at first but I soon figured it out.

There have been more than just this one experience. I work in Downtown Portland and have always tried to give Half n Half a chance but every single time I am disappointed. I don't think they clean their espresso machine b/c the shots taste like you're sucking on a dirty nickel.

So, skip Half n Half and go to Coffee Plant on Washington !

Pros: Nice area, cute space.

Cons: A bunch of frickin' hipsters chuck yr coffee around.

Something very homey about this cafe. Just walking in feels like you can catch a breath of relaxation. There are abundant reading materials although the seating is quite limited.

The sandwiches are ample, interesting in their combinations and priced reasonably. Can't comment on the coffee or pastries but I know the hot chocolate tastes mighty fine. The staff is especially nice and service oriented, and the music is eclectic from Patsy Cline to Elvis to Low. The place just makes you feel at home whether you're a hipster, hippie or hophead.

Pros: Any sandwich, fruit and deviled eggs

Cons: no salads of any kind

Normally I would say Half N Half is a great place to eat but based on today's experience I had to give it 1 star. I have in the past been a big fan of their sandwiches. They use very unique ingredients to create the tastiest lunch on the block. My complaint? Loose the hipster hair, or at least tie it back! I know it's not cool to wear a hair net these days. It's also uncool to find, not one but two long black hairs inbedded in the normally great lunch I enjoy at your establishment! It is also very discouraging to discover this after I have paid for this item and brought it back to work and not have enough time to go back for a refund! Hey so maybe wash your hands before touching someone's food and get a hair cut so no one else finds a horrifying surprise in their lunch...Thanks, DINEBYSHOOTING

Pros: inexpensive

This is a cute little place that seemed real laid back. They have zines all around to read, as well as daily papers. Looks like they also sell stuff by local artists. The coffee and snacks get an A+!

Thank you for all the early morning coffee and lovely lunch items. Love the hipster style without the hipster attitude! Keep it up.

I love the Half and Half. It's adorable, it's on one of my favorite streets, it's surrounded by great businesses. It's still easy to park in the area. The breakfast sandwiches are amazing, so are the coffee drinks, the pie, the deviled eggs and the oreos. Go there right now!

The half and half has been around for five years now and I have come and gone since it's opening. I think they were the first business to carry stumptown coffee downtown(before you could buy it everywhere) and have now grown into the best sandwich shop around and carry what could be the best pies in Portland. With all of the gentrification happening in the area, it is good to know that local businesses can still thrive.

This is an amazing little cafe. Run by an extremely personable couple who make a terrific cup of coffee, this place sells everything from some of the best vegan sandwiches on the block to a very satisfying slice of pie. Also all kinds of local crafts, such as pins, light switch covers, you name it. A great place to go for First Thursday.

PROS: Locally owned & operated, DELICIOUS
CONS:

The Half & Half is precisely that: Half Cafe and half convenience store. It's 100 percent great.

The Half & Half serves up the best sandwiches in Portland, with a small, ever-changing menu that highlights the owner's creativity and deep knowledge of fresh, local ingredients. The coffee drinks are excellent (beans are Stumptown, and baristi are trained regularly). You can also pick up cigarettes and mouth guards in the convenience store portion.
