Fodor's Review

The largest retail store of used and new books in the world (with more than 1.5 million volumes), covers an entire city block and rises three stories on the edge of the Pearl District. A local legend, and rightfully so, Powell's also carries rare and collectible books and contains a popular coffeehouse, World Cup. There are also branches in Portland International Airport as well as a large outpost in the heart of the Hawthorne District, with its own coffeehouse, Fresh Pot.
