Spring’s coming and so is the end of this term at FIR. Guayaki’s Lorax event went off without a hitch and today Gaufre Gourmet’s team is going out to visit hotels.

Portland’s Breakfast Scene

Portland Monthly published an article in their March issue mentioning the top breakfast restaurants in Portland. Most selections here look absolutely amazing. A lot of these restaurants are well known and therefore, have a hefty waiting line. For those that want a quick breakfast without the long wait, Gaufre Gourmet is the place to go. This food cart is located in downtown on SW 9th and Alder. Their selection varies from a simple liege waffle to artistic creations like the chunky monkey.

11/29 Agency Meeting

We went over a lot of information today. Patrick of Guayaki came over to discuss the event we will be hosting on the Park Blocks this Thursday at Portland State University. If you’re available during that time I’d highly encourage coming by and trying yerba mate out!

Wanna try something cool?

During Dead Week, Portland State University will be hosting the first ever Guayaki Event!!! Check the Park Blocks on December 1, 2011 from 9:00am-2:00pm. There will be games, giveaways, and just plain old fun to be had during the toughest week of the term.

Never had a Guayaki product before? No problem! Try one with us and tell us what you think of the product.

Guayaki is a company that distributes Fair Trade Yerba Mate. They are considered one of the top companies practicing sustainability.


What is Yerba Mate?

Yerba Mate is made from a plant in the South American rainforest. The beverage is often compared to coffee and tea since it contains both caffeine and nutrients as well. It is considered the national drink of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Southern Brazil.

For more information, please check on their webpage!

What a good morning…

I was walking to work today using a different route when I found this jewel. Gaufre Gourmet has been cooking up waffles early in the morning. Their menu looks absolutely delicious, too bad I had to rush to work. Hopefully I can stop by next week and try one of their waffles.

They’re part of the food cart lot located at SW 9th and Alder. More specifically, their cart is in the back, towards where Magpie is.

Please note that their operating offers are different than what’s on their site. Their schedule is as follows:
M-F: 7:00am-3:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am-2:00pm

Check their website: Gaufre Gourmet

Try them out and tell us what you think.
