This long, cavernous coffee shop is a retreat into chill-dom in the busy Alphabet District neighborhood. Go to sit, read, relax, and enjoy your cup-o' Joe.
Recently face-lifted, it's a tad less divey due to slightly renovated bathrooms and new windows but it retains it hipster cashe, the Matador is a big, narrow bar in black and blood-red that gets packed with some of Portland's rowdiest west side partiers. The cheap drinks can be sopped-up with Burgers, fries, nachos, burritos etc. Wednesdays and weekends DJ's spin for the ongoing party.
