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

My cousin is a cookie hound, so we stopped by here after Lan Su Chinese Garden, on the way to Lardo. Pearl Bakery is in the Pearl District of DT Portland on NW 9th Ave and Couch. In addition to cookies, PB offers cinnamon rolls, macarons, and full breakfast & lunch. Not surprisingly, they bake their own bread on the... More

This is clearly the best bakery in the Portland metro area. The baguette is our favorite. The ideal place if you want a great loaf of bread. It is our go to bakery.

We were looking for a place to have breakfast because we missed it in our hotel so we pick this bakery as the closest one to our hotel . The place is nice but sandwiches variety wasn't that much . I order a cinnamon bum but I think it wasn't fresh . But in general not bad one.
