Another java hut with much-loved banana bread, this drive-thru coffee shop should be known for their flavorful banana nut loaf by now. A slice of this comes cool, thick, and perfectly complements a drink like the Aztec Mocha. If you’re more into a non-coffee kind of beverage, MFG also does awesome lemonade concoctions like The Portland Pump or The Puget Punch — and if you’re exceptionally hungry, add that banana bread as well as one of their various paninis.
