PSU's student-run, sustainability-oriented cafe

A student-run, vegetarian cafe located on the Portland State campus in the Smith Memorial Union. The cafe is really big with over 20 tables, a number of comfortable couches, internet access, and a couple of computers for general use. Their menu changes seasonally, but it always includes a lot of vegan options. The atmosphere is very relaxed, casual, and funky.

"We strive to feature local, seasonal, organic, sustainable, and fair trade products. We include affordable options for a variety of diets. Currently, most main dishes are priced at $4.00. A bowl of our soup is around $3.00. We limit waste by using real plates, silverware and glasses."

There are a couple options for non-dairy milk for coffee drinks, and yummy vegan muffins. Affordable, good food.

I go there for the giant cookies and cupcakes. Dear pastry chef: I want to kiss you!
