Location: SE 11th and Clay
Coffee. $1. What else is there to say? Simple. Straight forward. Good tasting coffee. $1. Boy Gorilla coffee figured this one out. All around the Portland State University [relocated to SE Portland] campus are both corporate and non corporate coffee shops. Last I visited one, a small cup of black coffee started at $1.40 and it wasn’t that good. For $1 at Boy Gorilla, you get a 12oz cup of Legare’s house blend coffee. You can opt for tea or chai or iced tea all for $1, but I got the coffee. Pretty tasty for $1.
Boy Gorilla is right there just west of the MAX tracks on SW Mill st on SE 11th and Clay. (I grew up on Mill st. in SE Portland, fancy that!) Eschew the bigger coffee chains and give them a try. Tell them Food Carts Portland sent ya.
