I love coffee. It’s a new phenomenon in my life that started just a few years ago and is now a daily habit. This sweet little west end spot has the yummiest lattes and the coziest little storefront. Smalls Portland packs a lot into its space on Brackett Street. This place is tough to describe – it offers the same enticing blend of eccentricity and tradition that underlies Portland character. It’s an eatery, but there’s more to the Smalls menu than creative and locally-sourced fare. If you’re on the hunt for coffee, cocktails, wine, oysters, snacks, market items, gifts, home, or wellness specialties, then check this place out.
Smalls celebrates local artisans with pop-ups and collabs that make great gifts, underscoring the emphasis on supporting Portland makers and growers. If you’re not in the market for sundries, there are plenty of edible treats to temp you from breakfast to dinner. Open six days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Smalls is an ideal spot to stop for coffee, meet for a casual bite, or wind down with a drink. The atmosphere is relaxed but lively, and what you’ll find will keep you coming back. Also, don’t miss their Caesar salad. It’s amazing.
