"In 1953 Don the Beachcomber's tiki restaurant opened in this very space where we now serve you delicious coffee every morning. We named our coffee shop after this legend’s given birth name, Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt, celebrating the founding father of tiki restaurants and bars while serving you honest and delicious Stumptown coffee to get your day started.
