A Jolt of Coffee and Good Cheer in Astoria, Oregon

I’m not sure what gives me more of a wakeup jolt at Three Cups Coffee House, in Astoria, Oregon—the double-shot Americano fired straight into my veins or the cheery 7 am welcome as I walk in the door. It’s a friendly, airy place to sip a java in a comfy couch, pull a worn book off the shelf, smell the coffee roasting in the centre of the shop or grab a window seat and look way up to the long, long bridge and causeway that spans the mouth of the Columbia River and connects Washington and Oregon.

The cafe also bakes a nice selection of sweet and savoury scones and muffins, such as my dense pumpkin-chocolate chip muffin. As I’m given a rousing sendoff, the cafe’s motto seems most appropriate: “Where by the third cup, you’re family!”

    Wow, that bridge looks like the rickety seal rookery walkways I used to walk in the fog. Without caffeine.
