Welcome to “Mornings In Paris”, a warm, intimate coffee shop located in the heart of Portland’s ‘Old Port’ district. The coffee is hand roasted, many of the cakes, cookies and pastries are home made, and the service is always efficient and friendly. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a European, ‘Old World Café’; a gathering place with a true neighborhood feeling where people share the local news, swap new ideas, develop friendships and enjoy good coffee and delicious food. The café is filled with work of local artisans, Parisian décor and also features a bulletin board to keep you up to date on local musical performances and events.
Choose from ten different custom blends of small batch, hand roasted coffees, available by the pound or carefully crafted into your favorite latte or cappuccino. All espresso drinks are prepared on the La Victoria Arduino espresso machine, one of the finest, Italian machines of its kind. The controls are manually operated, allowing the experienced staff to fine tune your favorite espresso drink for maximum flavor.
For tea lovers there is an assortment of loose-leaf teas, also sold in bulk or steeped to perfection and served in generous bowl-like cups. Accompany your preferred beverage with a selection from the wide array of delicious pastries and baked goods, many of which are home made the owner and her mother. Maples Ice Cream and Gelato are featured during the summer season; savory soups, stews and sandwiches during the colder months. House made waffles are also a feature along with egg and sausage breakfast sandwiches. For detailed lists of all the available food and beverages, see the food/menu page and the monthly specials.
