Posies offers all the cozy satisfaction of a mid-winter bear den, where a sleepy bear drinks herbal tea to rest his tired paws from a long day of being a bear. Green window frames are punctuated by vintage furniture, sturdy tables, and warm lighting that sprinkles down upon the cafe's trays of sweetly frosted cupcakes and tea leaves. Customers can use free WiFi or check out a charming children's corner as they snack. A cup of Ristretto Roasters coffee begins or propels the day ($1.25 for a small mug), while a glass of Pilsner Urquell unwinds a long evening ($3).
We are a small tea room in downtown historical Vancouver Washington USA. We bake up fresh scones every morning and offer over 100 varieties of loose leaf tea.

The cozy Pyramid Cafe specializes in authentic Turkish coffee and a range of teas and sodas to satisfy caffeine cravings. A single punch on the 10-punch card nets imbibers up to $4 worth of drinks, including a 20-ounce cup of Turkish coffee ($4), made from super-finely ground beans that impart steaming cups with thick texture and strong flavor. A 20-ounce chai latte ($3.50) mixes spiced tea and milk for a gentler, tastier buzz than high-octane battery acid. Italian soda ($3.75 for 20 ounces) tickles tongues with effervescent sweetness while placating fractious sweet teeth left bitter by too much black coffee. Sip a drink in the 1,700-square-foot café, complete with a second-story loft for quiet reading, relaxation, and reminding uppity gravity that there are ways around its stringent laws.
The Grant House serves up simple yet sophisticated fare in a beautiful, historic setting. Drop in for dinner, with the Northwest seafood cakes ($9), pan-fried and served with roasted red pepper aioli, serving as a lavishing leadoff hitter for your roster of edibles. Entrees include grilled wild Northwest salmon ($21), a four-cheese ravioli ($17), and beer-battered halibut and chips ($14)—each adequately equipped to help your shy and socially reserved stomach make some new, albeit temporary, friends. For nocturnes attempting to break free of their lifestyle habits, The Grant House also offers up a lunch menu. The peach salad ($7 half-size, $10 full-size) coyly cloaks seasonal greens and goat cheese in a saucy sherry vinaigrette, while a barbecue pork sandwich ($8) boldly flaunts a snazzy get-up of provolone and Walla Walla sweet onions in a house-made sauce.
Three signs at Skyline's pioneer boulevard location echo its 1935 origins—a neon "Open" sign glowing beneath the awning, a Coca-Cola sign flanking the parking lot, and a "Burgers and Shakes" marker crowning the roof. The Broadway location's dining space similarly hearkens back to Skyline's beginnings with its checkerboard tiles and booths and its insistence on only accepting money from the 1930s. Though all these design elements reflect Skyline's reputation as a classic American burger joint, the menu demonstrates that its chefs never stopped experimenting. The burger selection extends to half-pound steak burgers with topping combinations such as guacamole, pepper jack, salsa, and sour cream. Such innovation captured Food Network Magazine's choice for Oregon's Best Burger in 2009. The chefs' experimentation continues throughout the menu, from milk shakes blended with pie to a deep-fried hot dog dubbed The Resolution Destroyer.
