Watching smoke billow out of the top floor was only so entertaining, so we decided to head over to Stumptown Coffee Roasters, which boasts that it's the store that started the coffee revolution in Portland.
My Chai Tea Latte
Stumptown was attached to the Ace Hotel so we hung out in their lobby while we waited to go back to The Benson. I loved this vintage hotel sign.
After coffee, we headed back to The Benson. Apparently, a dryer was on fire and the firemen got it under control pretty quickly. The elevators weren't working yet, so we walked up nine flights of stairs (geez that was hard!) and got ready for the day. For lunch, we headed to Pine State Biscuits, which was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
J.'s brunch ... The Reggie
The hashbrowns we shared ... I dug into my food without getting a picture. Whoops!
From there, we headed east to Multnomah Falls. The drive was definitely worth it! I hope to come back here on a summer day and do all the hikes! It was way too cold for any hiking this past weekend!
