Non-Starbucks coffee near the Convention Center

The worst thing, for me, when I travel is finding decent coffee in the morning. A lot of times, you're lucky just to find a Starbucks.

But when you come to Portland, and particularly to the Oregon Convention Center, you'll find we're a bit coffee-obsessed. There are two Starbucks in the Convention Center, and one just outside.

But what if you want to try something local? Or local-er? Here are a few suggestions of local favorite non-Starbucks coffee shops...

"Cafe J" is on the NE corner of 6th and Holladay, by the MAX tracks. I don't recall which coffee they serve, but it's a cute, local place with great panini!
