Starbucks on 10th & Couch

This is one of my favorite Starbucks in the Pearl District. It has such a great atmosphere. It’s cozy and dark inside, but the oversized windows bring the outside view of the street and trees right to you, so you feel like you are sitting out on the street.

Across the street is Powell’s, a huge bookstore that you will literally get lost in. I love sitting here when its raining and watching everyone go about their day. Real Portlanders don’t use umbrellas. 🙂

This view is looking onto 10th street. As you sit here, you will notice the sidewalk filling with people waiting for the streetcar to come and whisk them away to other places around town.
This is a great place to sit and people watch, meet a friend, or catch up on a book or work. They also are one of the only Starbucks that sell wine and beer!
