An appreciation of Painted Lady Coffeehouse

You have seen my pic of my favorite human bean Jill Younce in my website rotator for 10+ years, which is how long Painted Lady Coffeehouse existed until Sept. 30, 2022. PL became a centerpiece of Milwaukie community life, just the way it's supposed to happen when a generous and talented shop owner shares her spirit and goodies with the public. In the course of supplying thousands of lbs. of coffee in weekly installments, I  got to spend loads of time with Jill and her excellent staff and lively customers....not to mention all the food and treats I consumed along the way. Jill is a phenomenal cook and amazing person whose friendship I will cherish forever. We wish her the best as she goes forward in her life...she has made me a much better person with every hug and omelet and pastry.

The Hello Cafe will be taking over the reins from Jill in early October, and while the emphasis will be mostly delish sandwiches, Badbeard's will continue to provide the java. We know it is a good fit and needless to say, big shoes to fill! Love you Jilly Beans!!!!! thanks for everything....jk
