Summer, summer, summer time...

Happy Thursday!

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the sunshine. We have a few new announcements to make.

While we are no longer open on Saturdays, we ARE open from 6AM to 6PM Monday through Friday! We have extended our hours in order to bring you coffee earlier in the morning and keep you caffeinated on your way home in the evening.

We have also expanded our food menu! Check out our latest piadinas, which now come with chips on the side to create a good hearty meal. Or if you're feeling like something lighter, we have two new full sized salads as well! Our Chicken & Beet with chicken, sliced beets, goat cheese, chopped walnuts on a bed of arugula and served with a side of raspberry vinaigrette. We also have our Watermelon & Feta, with watermelon, sliced red onion, and feta cheese on arugula, served with a side of champagne vinaigrette. Easy to eat in the cafe during a leisurely lunch break or to take back to your office with you!

Our retail shelves are growing with lots of locally made art, books to read, and Cafe Ponte gear to collect as well!

A big thank you again to all of our customers for being so amazing!

Fall is in the air...

Hello, everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying the changing weather as much as we are, and all of the bundling up. We are serving our tasty fall specials -- Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Toasted Marshmallow White Mocha, and our Caramel Apple Cider. With Halloween just around the corner, we are rearing up for an exciting holiday season (hint: Eggnog and Gingerbread Lattes...).

Another piece of news: PaintNite! The cafe has started hosting PaintNite every Saturday. For a night of fun, painting, and some libations, check out www.paintnite.com and see which piece calls out to you!

Our current artist/photographer, Matt Jastram, is now selling prints of his amazing photos. Be sure to catch him before he's gone, you'll regret it if you let those prints sell out before snagging your own! Check him out at www.mattjastramphotography.com .

I hope this post finds you all well, and come by and visit us when you're in town for a nice, hot cup of coffee, a delicious treat, and that view of the waterfront. <3

Is it summer yet?

Hello, hello!

We are getting closer to the summer season, and in preparation we have some new art, specials, and pastry options!

Art : Christa Pierce

Christa is a Portland illustrator. She has published a children's book, done work for Microsoft, and is continuing to create beautiful art. Her pieces and a number of her prints are available all around town, and we are happy to be one of those lucky spots. For more information, visit her website at www.christapierce.com.

Specials : Blackberry Cream + Peach Chai + White Chocolate Coconut Mocha

Tasty summer specials, at your service! While we would recommend all three of these treats iced, the Peach Chai and White Chocolate Coconut Mocha are also VERY good served hot. Our Blackberry Cream is a blended treasure that tastes like a milkshake without the guilt, and you can add coffee to it for only $0.50 extra!

Pastries : Fleur di Lis Bakery

We are over the moon to now be offering Fleur di Lis Bakery options at our cafe. From croissants to scones to delectable cookies, we have a little something for everyone. If you're looking for sweet or savory, we have what you need! For more information about Fleur de Lis Bakery, visit their website at www.fleurdelisbakery.com.

 

More updates coming next month, but in the meantime, enjoy the weather and if you're down by the waterfront taking part in any of the summer festivities, come grab a coffee and a treat from us!

Happy Spring!

April is here, the sun is starting to peek out more frequently. We have our spring drink specials up, including our very popular Lavender Latte (a staff favorite!) and plenty of seating in the sunshine. Tom Healy is our current artist displayed in the space, with a select few beautiful landscape pictures printed on metal. He is one of our favorite regulars and we love to have him here! His photography will be here through May, so come check it out. You can see more of his work at www.tomhealyphotography.com.

We are in the process of planning some evening events this summer, such an music nights and/or group paint events. We will post those as soon as we get something on the books!

Thank you to our customers, we love you all! <3
