ehind the Museum Café is a unique café that specializes in Japanese tea and foods, Japanese antiques and art and crafts.

The café serves robust EXTRACTO coffee roasted right here in Portland, Oregon. We offer our own homemade sweets, sandwiches, and assorted Japanese-style appetizers with seasonal vegetables, all of which can be paired with our premium Japanese beers and sakés.

The interior design melds traditional Japanese style with modern flair to create a warm, welcoming space, with an inviting atmosphere.
