“Cute Bakery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This bakery has a classy, urban atmosphere. I got a soy chai, a brownie, and a roll (for later). All were great. I stopped here on the way to Powell's books.

“Favorite Pre-Powels stop... followed by a Post-Powels stop :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We love to grab coffee and a pastry before visiting the City of Books and a delicious sandwich to enjoy on our drive back to Bend!

“Grab a latte and enjoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Best latte's in Portland in my humble opinion! The bakery fair is excellent as well. There seems to always be a line no matter what time you get there so the secret is out.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If we'd stayed in downtown Portland during our recent trip to Oregon, we would have started every day at the Pearl Bakery. Fortunately, we visited on the second day of our week-long stay (during a food tour on which we sampled two breads and three pastries) and we made a point of going again. If you've ever had a dry and flavorless imitation of what a croissant should be, get yourself to the Pearl to sample one that is moist-yet-flaky and butter-perfect. Or treat yourself to something you may never have heard of: a gibassier. This is a soft-as-a-cloud French pastry delicately spiced with anise and candied orange peel. It is not something you'll commonly find in the U.S. (and might not know to seek out in a patisserie in France), so here's your chance!

“Cute place for coffee and dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Really cute bakery!! Had the almond cake and raspberry macaron. The almond cake had good flavor and texture. Everything else there looked good too. Cutely decorated and just a great place to relax if in the Pearl district.
