“Grand Central Bakery & Cafe”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I am a regular, not so much for the in store limited food offerings, but they simply make the best bread in Portland! Try the Peasant Bread! Reminds me of when I lived in Europe!

“Fresh a delicious sandwiches”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We love the basil egg salad sandwich. It was so delicious with the olive bread and basil. A must item when visiting for the first time.

“Fabulous bakery. Rivals those in France and Italy.”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This review is for the bakery only, I've never tried the cafe. Really good baked everything. Do not even walk nearby if you're low carb. You will lose your resolve!

“Outstanding Artisanal Bakery”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Got turned on to their bread at some of my favorite restaurants in Portland and finally found an actual location where I could sample some of their other baked goodies First, they make an excellent pugliese style ciabatta that is perfect for dipping in olive oil whenever dining at an Italian restaurant. Secondly, they have great breakfast pastries (their blueberry muffins have a wonderful buttery flavor and their cinnamon rolls use whole wheat). Third, they have great sandwiches.

I try and visit at least once whenever I visit Portland--wish we had a bakery half as good in San Diego.

Tip: free refills of coffee when enjoying your breakfast.

“One of Portland's Best Bakeries.”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The bread here is fantastic as are the grinders and cookies. No matter what you're in the mood for, a meal or dessert, I would definitely suggest going here. And with locations all over the city, it's very convenient.
