The Dancing Bear Coffee Company is located at the Cartlandia food pod in Portland, Oregon. Owners Sue and Larry opened this cart in March 2013.
Portland needs more smoothie and juice carts. The Sip cart on NE Alberta and Moberi (currently at Rose City Food Park) have received rave reviews in the community, myself included.
Of course, Dancing Bear also serves coffee and espresso drinks, plus a limited selection of baked goods. Even on a chilly spring day last month, I wanted to try one of their smoothies.

Other smoothies get fruity -- and tropical -- in nature. There's a "Coconut Bear" smoothie which contains coconut milk; a "Green Bear" smoothie with lettuce and kale; and a "Tropical Bear" smoothie with coconut milk, bananas, mangoes, pineapple, and papaya.
Some places may add a bunch of ice to the smoothie, but Sue and Larry freeze certain items (i.e., bananas) at Dancing Bear to allow the natural flavors to pop more.
Two very friendly people here. I'd love to return and try some other smoothies, juices, and espresso drinks. 7.5/10
