You can either begin your 4th Street scavenger hunt by fortifying yourself with a cup of "joe" at Portfolio Coffeehouse, or start at the far end and stop for pastry and a drink when you're through. The decaf is more bitter than I like, so I usually choose tea or an Odwalla fruit juice, but the salads, sandwiches and pastries are great.
Portfolio exhibits the work of local artists. They also host a sunday morning story hour for kids, an open mic night on Wednesday nights, and have other live entertainment on some nights.
