I've been taking my dog Waffles to Dr. Valli and Scott (Synergy's awesome trainer) for a year now and the only thing I wish is that I had visited them sooner! The respect, care, and attention that my dog receives there is unmatched. Dr. Valli's compassion, bedside manner, and knowledge for animals with behavioral issues is the stuff of dreams. I wish she was my dog's regular vet! I've worked in the veterinary industry for 10 years now and finding a vet who really takes the time to get to know your dog and respect his needs, is current on the medical research, and takes the time to listen and educate kindly and thoroughly is practically unheard of. Their training classes are structured in such a way to produce results and success. And Scott has a wealth of knowledge on how to make any dog's life easier, less scary, and more fun. The last behaviorist I saw told me my dog might be a lost cause and maybe would have to be euthanized. Synergy gave him a chance and gave me hope. And Dr. Valli and Scott gave me the tools and resources to be able to help him live a life that wasn't constantly based on his fear of his surroundings. Because of them, I learned to understand my dog's world from his point of view and I learned to love him and accept him despite the behavior he sometimes can't help. And because of them, my dog is happier and wags his tail more - something he never used to do. I even recently decided to pursue my veterinary technician specialty license in animal behavior - I love what they do that much! If you think your pet needs help, don't wait until the problem goes away on its own or with age - it likely will only get worse. Do the right thing. Get him/her help. Take it from someone who's dog went from "lost cause" to manageable. Synergy is money and time well spent! They make mine and Waffles' life so much easier.

Bland food, horrible service and really boring decor too - I felt like I was in a really crappy antique shop or museum. The ambiance was lacking the kind of coziness and warmth one thinks of when they think of tea, bakeries, or brunch. This place seems like it's trying really hard to make something 'hip' and popular that could only appeal to a small population of people with really bad taste(buds). The owner and her staff have appalling business etiquette too and, from my experience are tone-deaf. This place seems to only cater to the kind of customers who are clueless or who share her obsession for a time that most people with any knowledge of world history lament or feel shame about rather than celebrate. The unfriendly service, subpar menu, and uninviting ambiance coupled with the overtly racist things this owner and her staff have said to community members and the press (have you read some of the press on this place!? Christ.)...I wouldn't be surprised if this place was gone in 6 months to a year. After all, Portland prides itself on good food and this place doesn't even have that going for it. Politics and history aside, if you were on the fence about this place, I say give it a pass. Don't waste your money on a sinking ship.

I went out of my way to go here based on all the positive reviews and the fact that I could use my debit card to do the washes (not the drying—bring bills/quarters) which is amazing. The place was clean, there were plenty of washers available (I went on a Tuesday night) and the best part is that both my loads were washed and dried in a record 45 minutes total! That's outrageous! I will certainly be returning.
