True Porltand – The Rimsky-Korsakoffee House

Portland’s “Secret” Coffee House

rimsky_1 rimsky_2

From Wikipedia …

Named after Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Rimsky-Korsakoffee was one of Portland’s first coffeehouses. The classical music-themed business, serves coffee and desserts. It operates from the former living room of a reportedly haunted Craftsman-style house, built in 1902 and “nearly hidden from view” by the surrounding foliage.

The coffeehouse is owned by Goody Cable, who opened it for business in 1980 reportedly “to stop cleaning [her] house for music parties,” having hosted classical music events in her home for years prior.

Be advised the Coffee House has no exterior sign.
