Bakeries

There are times in life when you are desperately, relentlessly, obsessively in need of a warm chocolate praline croissant, berry brioche, chocolate chunk cookie, sour cream crumb cake, orange fennel scone, lemon rosemary shortbread, toasted coconut cream cupcake, or fresh strawberry tartlet, whatever the reason may be. Use this quick and easy guide to run to one of Portland’s best bakeries as fast as you can–nobody can catch you when you’re after a gingerbread man. No one is judging you, certainly not me, as chances are exceptionally good that I’m at one of these bakeries as you read this, brushing honey pie & macaron crumbs off my lap. See you soon. Oh, and here’s a handy map to help you navigate/plan a bakery crawl/get to the nearest roasted rhubarb danish source, stat. Should you have trouble choosing one, here are a few love notes about my favorite spots.
