JiST Cafe is one of those places you walk into and wonder why it took you so long to get here. It might be hard to tell from its current modern digs, but this bright little cafe has been around for over 70 years (albeit under a different name). Only open for breakfast and lunch, their chashu hash skillet is worth driving across the city. But if you happen to be in the area, it’s also just a nice place to stop in, grab a cup of Stumptown coffee and enjoy that excellent side patio in peace.
