Wonderwood Springs Cafe

Wonderwood Springs is a permanent coffee shop experience built on a magical spring that grants its drinkers special powers. It magically changes locations, staying in a town, village, or hamlet for as long as it feels it needs to. Could be two days, could be two decades. Now, it has found itself in Portland, Oregon. While coffee and themed fantasy drinks are a staple at the springs, there will be food, events, shopping, adventure, and so much more.

Wonderwood Springs officially opened its doors in the St Johns neighborhood on October 15th.

The proprietor is the first person who walks in. Maybe someone who needs to find a new purpose. An adventurer who’s been feeling they’re getting too old to keep going on quests. A lonely farmer who wants to spend more time with the people in their community. A painter with a wish to spread joy throughout their city.

The objects on the wall are from all over the realm, collected from all the places it’s been. It’s quite a sight to see.

While visiting, be sure to check out the quest board. You never know what kinds of folks need help. We’ve heard rumors that Castle Maplehold could use some assistance, maybe you’re the one for the job?
