Love the pearl bakery! The baguettes are yummy but think the kalamata olive bread is the best. Was serving spaghetti dinner and baker suggested kalamata in addition to the baguette that became garlic bread. Guests ate more kalamata than garlic bread

This is one of the best bakeries. I go here multiple times every visit to Portland. The baked goods and coffee drinks are of the highest quality. The service is wonderful and both regulars and tourists seem to visit. Before you leave, don't forget to take home a loaf of bread!

We ran into it by accident but I am very glad that we had a simple lunch there. Sandwich, coffee and cake... Very good impression.

My wife and I had lunch there two days in a row. Reason being--it was so good the first day. It is a very simple place but the sandwiches, soup and pasteries are delicious. I recommend it if you're looking for a place that's not fancy but has good fresh food. Their chocolate chip cookies are wonderful. Coffe is excellent.

Great sandwiches, cakes & coffee here providing a good place to refuel during sightseeing in Portland. Good meat based sandwiches but outstanding baked eggplant one highly recommended. Yummy!

Whether you're looking for breakfast or a light lunch in Portland, Pearl is the go-to place. Well-regarded owner (whose bread recipe) appears in one of my favorite cookbooks and his wife have been offering quality products for a number of years here and at farmers' markets and restaurants around town. Lively casual atmosphere with some outdoor tables. Delicious cookies and... More

An amazing bakery with a terrific selection of goodies. They also have sandwiches but really their highlight for me is their bread. My fav is the Vollkornbrot bread - it's a meal given how heavy it is as well as how tasty. Friendly staff and amazing baked sweets round this place out as a too notch bakery.

We enjoyed our meal here. I had a manchego and avocado sandwich which was wonderful! I thought the prices were a bit high and the staff could have been friendlier. Over-all a good experience.
