Every dish that leaves the kitchen at Colton Cafe is made from scratch. Cooks mix the batter for biscuits, simmer soups, and press burgers between the pages of War and Peace. The handmade results are such tasty comfort-food classics as patty melts and traditional turkey dinners, as well as breakfast staples including homemade buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy and the whimsically named Who-Hash. Hearty platefuls are served in the cozy dining room, lined with padded booths and framed landscapes.
In a profile for Oregon Live, Matt Perry said he got the idea to open a coffee shop in 2010, shortly after returning from service in Iraq with the Oregon Army National Guard. He was taking a community-college business course and had to make the plans for a shop as an assignment. Two years later, he was able to realize his plans with the cozy two-story business named after his english mastiff.
Toasty aromas of Portland Roasting Coffee's beans waft through the shop as baristas fill mugs and steam silky lattes. Several healthy drinks provide an alternate jolt of nutrition, from berry smoothies enhanced with flax or multivitamins to green juices, such as the Army Greens with a blend of kale, spinach, ginger, and patriotic speeches. Upstairs, leather chairs and a cozy love seat reside in a bright space illuminated by sunlight filtering through arched windows.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Lattelicious, a drive-through coffee cart located in the Vineyard Plaza parking lot, supplies on-the-go customers with café drinks and baked treats such as chocolate-filled croissants. Baristas marry shots of espresso with steamed milk to make signature lattes, and also craft energizing drinks such as cappuccinos, frappés, and Red Bull beverages. Many drinks can also be made lactose-free.
Edge Coffee isn't just community-oriented, it is also a reflection of the community. That's because they source most of their ingredients locally, whether it is their coffee beans from local roaster Sisters Coffee or their pastries and bread from Marsee's and La Provence. These ingredients form the basis of their menu, with staff grinding, blending, and pouring coffee into classic drinks or lattes made with premium Monin syrups. Atop their breads, they create breakfast staples such as bagel- and english-muffin sandwiches or their signature boxed lunch specials served with a juicy kosher pickle and locally made kettle chips. Even their drinks have Oregon connections, with fresh smoothies incorporating Oregon strawberries alongside unique add-ins such as protein powder or a splash of energy-boosting Rockstar. They also serve beer from Oregon, such as the Overcast Espresso Stout, which fuses the flavors of beer, chocolate, and coffee.
