You wouldn’t want a gas station to close at any hour of the day, and you wouldn’t want a coffeehouse to cut off your fuel supply, either. Today’s Groupon keeps the engine running with $10 worth of local brews and treats from open-24-hours-a-day Southeast Grind for $5.
The barometric pressure on the southeast side of Portland is ideal for releasing the fresh-ground fragrances of coffee beans, and the particular humidity of the region affords excellent breathability for the aromatic product, while attracting only a minimum of baby Grendels. The good people at Southeast Grind work to cover all levels of your palate through the delicious brews of Stumptown Coffee Roasters, the acute sweetness of Voodoo Doughnuts, and the finger-biting snacks of Black Sheep Bakery.
Keep your belly further sated with a tasty menu running the gambit from sandwiches to hummus to fruit plates to more. Try the giving thanks sandwich (turkey, cranberry sauce, and cream cheese, $6), the autumn mixer salad (mixed greens, apples, feta, almonds, and currants, $6.50), or some popcorn ($1).
Southeast Grind has a hip, laid-back aesthetic that invites you at all hours of the day for sipping, chewing, Interneting, studying, or probably more Interneting. The coffee shop feeds and waters the community as well as promotes its artists through shows open for all the public to see the many unique voices that make up the Portland scene. With 24/7, 100% satisfaction guarantees, Southeast Grind broadcasts a tremendous local voice all its own.
