You are visiting Hood River, Oregon for the first time and you want to live like a true Oregonian. Well, nothing is more important to a Pacific Northwesterner than a good cup of coffee, and one of the best Hood Bar & Cafe‘s to go for coffee in Hood River is Dog River Coffee. Located on Oak Street, the shop is a staple with locals. It offers some delicious drinks, food, and treats in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.
Freshly ground, coffee beans from Stumptown coffee in Portland are the basic ingredient in the shop’s delicious drinks. The hot coffee is strong, without being bitter. The lattes and cappuccinos are rich and perfectly balanced. The Peppermint Latte is one of the most flavorful coffee drinks you will find anywhere, and the Pumpkin Latte tastes like pumpkin pie with whipped cream melting in your mouth. This Hood bar & cafe‘s cold beverages offer some inventive flavor combinations, but the best thing about them is the coffee ice cubes that sit at the bottom of every cup.
The shop offers some yummy bagels and cream cheese and big croissants that are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. If you prefer more of a meal, you may want to try the breakfast burritos that the shop offers.
With big sofas and comfortable 1950s style chairs and tables, the shop is the perfect place to hang out or have a meeting. Dog River offers free Wi-Fi, so you can surf the net, watch a movie, or catch up on some work. There is even a play area in the back for the kiddies.
Where to Stay
