Palate a Coffee Bar is a coffee shop situated in the Old Mill District of Bend. The coffee bar serves Coava coffee, organic pastries, and muffins with vegan and gluten-free options in a log cabin-style atmosphere. While the coffee shop doesn’t have as much seating as other places in Bend, it has a relaxing and cozy atmosphere with a fireplace, wood floors, and high ceilings with wooden beams. They also have free Wi-Fi, a lot of wall outlets, and they open at 6 a.m., so it is a good location for working on your laptop. The coffee shop is just a few blocks from the river, so you can get your drink to go on a nice day and take a walk along the river.
High Quality Coffee
Palate serves coffee from Coava Coffee Roasters. This roastery from Portland, Oregon is one of the premier coffee roasters in the United States. Coava sources only single origin beans from the Coffee Arabica species. These beans have more sugars and oils than other species of beans which leads to a more complex cup of coffee. You can try Coava’s espresso made on Palate’s top-of-the-line La Marzocco espresso machine. All of Palate’s espresso drinks are made with a light amount of syrup, so their drinks aren’t overly sweet.
If you aren’t a coffee drinker or want a drink without caffeine, Palate serves Metolius tea. The tea company, from Bend, serves all-natural tea blends made from locally grown ingredients. Their chai, which can be ordered warm or hot, is one of their most popular teas.
Palate a Coffee Bar does have plenty of outdoor seating and a back patio for when the weather is nice. On Wednesday thru Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., A Broken Angel sets up their food truck next to the back patio. A Broken Angel is Bend’s #1 food cart and it serves what they call “New Southern American with a French inspired Pacific NW mountain flair.” You can order their Mount Bachelor Hash, Enchilada Short Stacks, or The Big Country Breakfast to enjoy with your cup of coffee.
