This is a place to go early before all the good stuff is gone. They make very creative pastry and only a few of each so when it is gone, too bad,so sad. I have had brunch and lunch a few time over the years and find it as a small restaurant and bakery is a great find in Portland.

I stopped in here after a very long morning because I desperately needed some coffee and breakfast. I somehow found myself in the Pearl District, and there was the Pearl Bakery. I could not get the sandwich I wanted because it was not 10 am, so I got a piece of Banana Nut Bread and a Latte. The coffee was... More

This is an amazing cafe/ bakery that has been in the Pearl since even before the construction boom started in that area. It is one of my favourite places in town for coffee and a pastry. In my opinion it has something for everyone in the pastry section, different type of sliced cakes (no icing), cookies, macaroons, croissants, soda bread,... More

While wandering around the city, I stopped into this bakery for a quick lunch. I had a three meat sandwich. The sandwich was delicious and the service was good. This bakery is located near Powell Books, and it is close to most of the things to do downtown.

This bakery is one of the best in the country. The croissants are the best! The chocolate chip cookies are to die for also. Love how you can see the people working in the back of the bakery. All homemade and delish. Just a block from Powell's books and they have parking. You must stop here if in Portland. I... More

a stone's throw away from Powells, it was a destination I sought after a two hour browse and buying session with my daughter. Great sandwiches, soups and pastries in an open, airy space. We took treats to go after our delicious lunch! Not for the gluten-free..;-)

We stopped to grab a quick lunch here and it was fairly busy so maybe that's why they had an extremely limited sandwich selection (only one choice). I think the sandwich could have been good when it was fresh but I am not a big fan of premade sandwiches. The people here are really nice though and the ham crossaint... More

Wonderul bakery and hang-out spot in a great location. We always go for coffee and pastries here when we are visiting Portland. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and the food is always good.

The coffee was solidly good - perfectly respectable in a town full of fantastic coffee. The bakery products we had were...Delicious. The ham and gruyere croissant was a good blend of all flavors involved. The cinnamon crown was the most tasty and balanced cinnamon baked good I think I've ever had. It was full of flavor but not full of... More
