Just like the Roman senate buildings of old, coffeehouses give visitors a place to engage in intellectual conversation and pretend they are not going to kill one another. Share ideas with this Groupon.

North Star Coffeehouse
The scent of freshly brewed Stumptown coffee wafts through the air in the two-story house that hosts North Star Coffeehouse as visitors challenge one another to chess tournaments, read a novel by the warm fire, or translate Faulkner into pig Latin. Once equipped with a brewed beverage and a tasty, sugary pastry from La Provence Bakery, patrons can explore the North Star confines, decorated in a postmodern-meets-vintage theme by Vizwerks, before settling into a cozy plush chair to browse the free WiFi.
