Elevator Cafe & Commons
1033 SE Main St., 503-956-9072, elevatorpdx.com. 8 am-6 pm Monday-Friday, 8 am-1 pm Saturday.
Situated at the core of the former Boyd's coffee-roasting facility, Elevator functions as a cafeteria for the startups housed in the building (Caviar and Energy350, to name a couple) that also happens to be open to the public. The trio of communal tables offer laptop power, while Adirondack chairs offer a place to sip your cup of Coava or Roseline ($3) with a view of the crane forest that's sprouted up from the onetime Belmont "goat block."
A free-play arcade machine loaded with Chopper I is a great distraction from actual work, as are the breakfast options, like a housemade sweet potato biscuit ($3) or a breakfast sandwich with two poached eggs, herb aioli, white cheddar and bacon served inside the aforementioned biscuit ($8.50). Throw in three taps for beer and cider ($5) and you've got a coffice-in-an-office experience that makes you think the management might actually want you using their many resources to run your chicken-sexing app startup. PETE COTTELL.
