Welcome to Porter.

We are a coffee shop first and foremost but we are excited to be offering breakfast and lunch for the neighborhood.  We also are constantly adding to our retail offerings with items ranging from olive oils and flours, to beer, wine and spirits as well as the staples like milk, bread and eggs.  We are very proud to be working with counter culture coffee from North Carolina.  We have a full espresso bar, rotating drip coffees and single origin pour overs and espresso.  We do our best to make as much as we can in house from the chai to the pastry.
