The choices included many veggie and meat sandwiches...I had the Rose City, made with ham and swiss, but had to split it with my wife after she had a taste...of course I had half of her Figalicious with prosciutto, walnuts, gorgonzola and fig jam.

Loved the Panini. Fresh, great flavor. Loved that you could also get a cappacino. Fair prices. Friendly staff and a comfortable atmosphere. Would definitely make this one of my go to spots when visiting Portland.

In a hurry to get to my conference, I stopped here. I ordered a latte and Parmesan bagel with bacon. The latte was great as the espresso was nice and strong. The grilled bagel was good but I felt that it had more butter(i think)...More

I was looking for a quick, healthy lunch while attending a conference at the Oregon Convention Center when I came upon J Cafe. It's a tiny place with a few tables and a couple of counter spots. It was obviously popular based on the line,...More
