Heard this bakery was amazing and had to check it out myself! Stopped for coffee and a pastry! Oh my gosh the chocolate croissants were so good! People next to us ordered sandwich's which also looked amazing! Take some time in the afternoon to stop by here, relax, and have a treat! Definitely worth it!

Happened upon this bakery whilst walking around the Pearl District and it's a gem if you like artisan breads. Definitely worth a visit for the sandwiches and croissants.

We went there for breakfast and oh it was so good. When you enter the bakery you get taken away by the design and then you see all those delicious treats which makes it difficult to choose from. The staff is friendly, the coffee good, the prices low and the baked treats are just delicious. We had keizers rolls and... More

Pearl Baker in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon, is a cute corner bakery that is definitely worth a visit! The baked goods there are absolutely delicious!!!!!!!....and so is their coffee and their sandwiches. The sandwiches are on rustic bread or whatever you choose and are delicious. It's easy to get to on the MAX Line, which pretty much takes... More

After checking out Powell's Bookstore, we walked over to Pearl Bakery a few blocks away. I had the rosemary shortbread cookie and it was delicious! Not too sweet, and melt in your mouth rich. My husband got the fig bar which was like a giant, homemade fig newton, and also wonderful. There is an extensive coffee and tea menu too.... More

Stopped in here for a quick bite and a latte en route to some meetings. The croissants we had were ok, but not great. A pain au chocolat should have more chocolate in it and the same was true of the almond croissant. The latte was pretty good, but not great. It was typical of lattes at independent coffee shops...

I had the cheddar, apple sandwich with a walnut spread. It was sooo good that I wrote to the bakery to get the recipe and they emailed it to me right away! I am bummed that this bakery is so far away, as I would eat here everyday and have bread for breakfast lunch and dinner. AWESOME bakery, everything we... More

Decided to go to the Pearl Bakery because it was close to Powell's Book store. Coffee was great (dark roast) and so was my cheddar, walnut, apple sandwich. My little ones had the PB & J and yogurt. We shared a ginger cookie. My 4 year old chose it because it was the biggest and I reluctantly tried some --... More

What I ate wasn't that appeasing. The bread was good though and the tea. It's in a good area and a good sit down area. Also has an old book shop around the corner.

Wonderful breads, especially their walnut loaf. Croissants are buttery and flaky. Sandwiches are flavorful with good rusty breads.
