WHERE TO TALK SHOP
Portland is known for its coffee, but Caffè Umbria 7 feels more like a detour to Perugia. Owned by a thirdgeneration Italian roaster, this busy Pearl District café functions like a branch office for entrepreneurs and VCs who meet over macchiatos and panini.
Ninety-nine barrels of beer on the wall—aged, farmhouse, sour, and plain old IPa are the draw at Loyal Legion, a the Central Eastside. Be sure to try one of its Breakside Brewery brews 1 , made by local Ben Edmunds.
Entrepreneurs chat over flat whites and free-range eggs on sourdough toast at Proud Mary, the first U.S. outpost of this cosmopolitan Melbournebased coffee chain.
