This place is exactly what you would expect ALL ABOUT PIE! Whether it's sweet or savoury, they have all kinds of delicious choices. They started out as a Food Cart in Portland, and after seeing them on "Eat Street" on The Food Network, I knew we had to visit them when we made our trip there. Since our trip in November 2012, they have moved into a building and it looks beautiful. I can't wait to go back and sample more of their delicious baked goods!
Favorite Dish: The Lemon Vanilla Bean is by far my favourite. It is the perfect bite size lemon meringue tasting pie you could ever want.
This is a great doughnut place with excellently made doughnuts, plus a wide range of unusual ones, topped with various cereals or bacon, or grape sugar candy. They also have a huge raised glazed doughnut.
It can be really busy and it has become rather touristy with a lot of tourist visiting it, but with good reason. This place is unique and wonderful. There can sometimes be quite a wait, but not always, and it's worth it.
This is also a great way to keep the kids happy.
Favorite Dish: Bacon maple bar, raised chocolate, raised glazed, grape ape.
Coffee Plant is a great little coffee shop in SW Portland that is Gluten Free. The coffe is always fresh and waiting for you. But the goodies are what you come here for. Regardless of if you need you food Gluten free or not, this place rocks. Great staff.
Favorite Dish: Apple Coffee Cake is the best. Great Birthday cakes as well, kid approved.
Voodoo Doughnut is now open 24/7, so you can get your sugar fix at any time, day or night. It's run by hip, but really nice, 20-somethings who make the most insane doughnuts you've ever seen. There's a basic round glazed doughnut - as big around as a dinner plate. Doughnuts with crushed oreos on them, or Cap'n Crunch cereal. The signature doughnut is the voodoo doll, filled with rasperry jelly (blood) and stabbed with a pretzel stick. There's their precious huge holy doughnut hanging on the wall, and they perform weddings. Not to be missed if you love crazy stuff (and good doughnuts).
Favorite Dish: The apple fritter that's "as big as your head", as their website puts it. And soooo yummy.
This little Shop is so popular it has been featured on the National Television and the Wall Street Journal. The little Doughnut shop that could...
-Make crazy doughnuts with funny names like "Memphis Mafia Fritter" and "Bacon Maple Bars"
-Teach Swalhili on Monday night at 9
-Have Doughnut eating contests on the 1st Friday of each month
-Have local music - art on top of there closet (I mean twelve foot high stage ;-) every Tuesday & Wednsday
-Have it's own documentary
-Be open pretty much all the time, 22 hours a day actually
-Conduct Legal Wedding Services complete with doughnuts and coffee.
All this from a couple of guys who wanted to start a business.
Favorite Dish: I never heard of the place until recently and was more then thrilled to find out it's right in downtown but you have to keep an eye out for it's small sign because this shop is small . At 1030 PM I walked in after a beer in one of the neighboring pubs and saw a handful of people eating from the large and colorful selection. I went with the CAPTIN CRUNCH CEREAL DONUT, I loved that cereal as a kid.
Best Baguettes and Croissants this side of France.
Favorite Dish: Chocolate croissant stuffed with Valrhona chocolate... or just the plain and crisp croissant... or even the homemade granola cereal.
Don't miss the salads at lunch, or Monday night Pizza.
St. Honore' Boulangerie is a delicious slice of France in Portland. When you walk in, you are dazzled as much by the aromas as the sight of countless calorie filled sweets. The freshly baked breads are stacked along the wall on shelves just as you would find them in a French village. The desserts behind the glass counters quickly dispel any resolve you had to resist temptation. There are fresh sandwiches, baquettes, salads and soups to enjoy either inside or outside. You are not rushed here, but are free to linger over your meal or coffee as long as you like.
Favorite Dish: Everything is wonderful!
One of my favorite breakfasts is a whole wheat bagel with peanut butter on it, and a cup of black coffee.
When in Portland, I did not have to venture far from my hotel before I ran straight into Broadway Bagels. It had a very large selection of bagels to choose from, asiago cheese to cinnamon raisin and back!
The cup of coffee rivaled that of a Starbucks, and the atmosphere encouraged you to eat your bagel and get on your way!
This famous doughnut shop is a must-try even if you don't like doughnuts. They make some very unusual doughnuts with some unexpected ingredients, such as bacon.
