Guapo Comics and Coffee - Mt. Scott - Arleta: $6 for $12 Worth of Caffeination, Cuisine, and Comics at Guapo Comics and Coffee

The Magna Carta was originally written in graphic-novel form; then King John of England canceled the project after seeing the poorly inked word balloon containing the "fish weir removal" clause. Today's Groupon celebrates capably created comic books. For $6, you get $12 worth of coffee, comics, café fare, and more at Guapo Comics and Coffee, located in Portland's FoPo neighborhood.

Guapo Comics and Coffee's café slings made-to-order munchies, many of which are organic, for both breakfasters and lunchanados alongside an impressive and constantly updated collection of local zines and indie comics, making for an environment of taste-bud and brain-bud stimulation. The breakfast menu offers essential endo-engine fuel for the day ahead, including an egg sandwich on a bagel ($4), an egg sandwich on an English muffin ($4), and oatmeal ($2.50), best washed down with a banana, strawberry, or blueberry smoothie ($4). Guapo's lunch feeds stomach-books with paninis ($4) and pita pizza ($4) topped with such fresh yums as feta, turkey, ham, and hummus. Additionally, Guapo Comics and Coffee summons the power of locally roasted organic beandom, serving Allann Bros. Coffee Roasters, an Albany-based coffee company since 1972. While customers sip the café's heady brew juice, they'll have a chance to catch up on email or web comics with complimentary WiFi.

Guapo Comics and Coffee also unleashes an ink-and-paint avalanche on mere mortals, with comic books ($3–$30) for all ages and interests. Although Guapo's focus is largely on independent comics, zines, and mini-comics, the store also dips its multi-paneled toe into the mainstream with selections from comic colossuses Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse. New arrivals can be found every week on Guapo Comics and Coffee's blog. Call up your own justice league and get to Guapo Comics and Coffee for reads and roasts.

Reviews

Yelpers applaud Guapo's unique fusion of fresh blends and pulpy pages with a 4.5-star rating, while the Meetup Community calls it a perfect, 5-star powwow place. Portland blogger Co in So Fo Po (of Foster Powell PDX) and The Zinester's Guide to Portland chime in with their own raves.

  • Guapo oozes panache. More than just a place to get yummy coffee and delicious pastries to fuel interneting, Guapo has a soul too. That soul is dedicated to promoting local, little-known, yet highly entertaining 'Ziners, artists, and comic books. – Co in So Fo Po, Foster Powell PDX
  • Once I started poring through I was immediately impressed w/ their selection. And the Coffee's good , too. – Djoser, Meetup
  • Quite possibly the friendliest comic store in the known universe! – The Zinester's Guide to Portland

Customer Reviews

What a great, friendly place! It's so out of the way from my house, it took me almost until my Groupon expired to go there, but they had yummy and original things at the coffee house counter and a nicely curated selection of comics and art books, including lots of indies, with a wonderful woman who helped us find new stuff to try. It's far to get to, but I recommend it to people I know who are nearer by pretty frequently.
