Great Gathering Places dwelling in SE Portland Ladds Addition

On a recent rainy day strolling around the idyllic gardens and streets of vintage homes of Ladds Addition, I wandered  I was magically  drawn into Palio Espresso and Desert House.  The large multi roomed establishment had the feel of a personal refuge of many generations where you could perfectly lose yourself inside your ipad,  a great book or quiet conversation on a wingback chairs, couches or spread out seated at a vintage table beside a large window.

Located on a spoke of the inner of the five circle patterned layout  many 2nd and 3rd generation families still frequent the muted quiet golden atmosphere .  

Once the original Safeway location in Portland and another incarnation as a Gallery this 2nd generation

Gathering place  offers a wide variety of hot and cold drinks , provincial deserts, warm soups and sandwiches.
