Ovation Coffee & Tea

Ovation has been serving tea and coffee in Portland's Pearl District since 2014.  The shop is located on NW Overton Street, next to The Fields Park and in view of the Fremont Bridge.

Service is welcoming and attentive at this family-owned business.  The decor is clean and modern with natural light filling the space from windows along two walls.  Between the scenic view and the people-watching and dog-watching (a perk of the adjacent pet-friendly park) opportunities, there are no bad seats in the house.

Ovation serves loose leaf tea, coffee and espresso beverages, and blended drinks (ZaZa's) along with pastries, baked goods, and sandwiches.  They also offer a compelling selection of Moroccan beverages, including Mint Tea (green tea, spearmint, orange blossom water), Sheba (green tea, wild sage), Luwessa (verbena), and Moroccan-spiced Chai and Coffee.

During my visit, I enjoyed the Moroccan Mint Tea which is served in a small or large berrad (teapot).  Not pictured is the delicious Turkey White Cheddar Panini that rounded out my lunchtime visit.

I also picked up a Moroccan Chai to go (and a scone which did not last long enough to be photographed) and took the opportunity to stretch my legs at the park before heading out on the next leg of a long drive.
