Townshend’s Alberta Tea House
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Opened in April of 2006, Townshend’s Alberta Street Teahouse is a mellow and cozy spot in an absolutely wonderful neighborhood. NE Alberta is made up of a very “Portland” mix; journalists, musicians, yoga instructors, artists, massage therapists, students, poets and many others from virtually all walks of life. On “Last Thursdays” the street shows its spirit as it transforms into its own version of a mini-Mardis Gras in the summer months. The staff at the teahouse is headed up by Jake, the bearded, bespectacled fellow who works most weekdays. If you’ve got a tea question, he’s got an answer. We’re all eager to make your perfect cup or pot of tea. Have a seat and relax, we’ll bring it out to you.
