Our Cafés

Cafés Closed

Due to the coronavirus, both our café locations are closed temporarily. Our goal is to reopen when our community’s health and safety is assured. Thank you and be well.

In 1999, World Cup Coffee opened its first café at NW 18th & Glisan Street in Portland, Oregon. With the goal of serving espresso drinks of the highest quality, word soon spread. Later that year, we were named one of the top 10 coffee retail shops by USA Today.

In the summer of 2018, we updated the look of the café with a full remodel. New offerings were introduced on tap, like kombucha with CBD, nitro cold brew, and a rotating draft beer. These joined the ranks of favorites like ceremonial grade Matcha, 25 loose leaf teas, local beers & wine, and our 24-hour cold brew coffee.

Our NW Glisan Street café remains the neighborhood’s choice for socializing, reading, working, and relaxing. A separate meeting room is available for groups looking to get together without distractions.

In 2003, Powell’s City of Books downtown location selected World Cup to be the in-house coffee retailer for their coffee room. Our mission was to bring new life to the space while elevating the quality of beverages and service to a standard worthy of this wildly popular attraction in the City of Roses. Besides serving our own craft-roasted coffee, World Cup offers food and beverage options from local vendors to serve the many visitors from around the world. Nestled between the towering aisles and the busy street outside, the cafe is an inviting den for both locals and visitors to peruse their book selections or watch the world go by.
