Local bakery with local ingredients. Breads are soooo good, and so are the biscuits. Kids like the various muffins. The breakfast biscuit egg sausage is all natural and so good.

Friends suggested this for a breakfast sand which and I'm glad she did. Had egg, sausage biscuit and it was delicious. I had ice tea and only concern was it was hibiscus/ginger and there was no ginger flavor at all.

Locals know and love this friendly bakery. We had smoked turkey sandwiches with Gouda with the popular ginger molasses and raisin oatmeal cookies for desert. The cookies were so good I bought a half dozen more. The staff is friendly and helpful, one ensuring I received my combined cookie discount based on my first purchase, another who calls two cookies... More

Had a terrific lunch here. The menu is quite varied and they have something to please everyone. Great soup. Be prepared to wait awhile for your order unless you just grab pastries and coffee. Little known secret Is the chicken pot pie. Amazing with chunky veggies and large pieces of chicken. Buy it frozen while you're having breakfast and you'll... More

Known Throughout PDX for their baked goods, Grand Central has slowly expanded throughout PDX over the last decade. Their baked goods are yummy, and they make some pretty good breakfast sandwiches as well. I'm fond of the bacon egg bolo, which is always a good choice.

Tried out this new location in cedar mills, everything looks fresh but the chocolate croissants were sitting out too long I think. Kind of hard. If only they warmed up bakery items. I was floored to see a 6-ok of hot dog buns selling for $5.99. Yeah, $6. Total for two items costed $6. Go to Bales thrift way just... More

ONly had the pie, which was excellent. Crust is flakey and light. Filling is not too sweet. Most excellent.

This is a great place to get a bakery item, cup of coffee or delicious sandwich. It is a cozy delight. The staff are super friendly and the decor is eclectic with mismatched chairs and different size tables. I had a Mediterranean melt sandwich and it was wonderful and big enough to share. The GC is just down a couple... More

I was actually just at the Woodstock location, but it did not come up as an option (Since it is a local chain, it should all be the same) Beautiful baked goods. Old fashioned deep fried donuts and long johns are not on hand. Go here for special brunch items like tarts with seasonal fruits. Don't miss the monkey muffins.... More
