I'd live in this bakery if I could! I've never had anything I didn't like and I've had quite a few things that I love. The house made caramel sauce is outstanding, the cookies are just the right crisp/soft texture and divine flavors. Don't miss out on any of the coconut pies! Did I mention the fudge? If you want something savory, there a delicious soups, biscuits and gravy, salads, wraps, quiches, tarts. Excellent coffee (though I miss the pour-over style) from Cellar Door. Everything is gluten-free which is a dream come true for vegans that have a gluten intolerance and find it darn near impossible to get vegan gluten-free goodies elsewhere. Everyone who works there is super nice. Oh! Scones. Get a scone. You won't regret it, and a muffin, too!

This bakery is really awesome!! I've been to all the vegan bakeries in Portland, and many around the country (e.g. Sticky Fingers, etc) and this is by far the best!

They've got lots and lots of super yummy sweets -- such as cupcakes, cookies, fruit tarts, cakes, cream pie, fudge!, truffles, macaroons, danishes, etc -- plus savory stuff like quiche and calzones. Plus fair trade organic Italian sodas, soft serve (different kinds), ice cream sundaes and lots of vegan specialty items. I love the variety here!

Everything I tried -- including a whole bunch of cakes, pies, fudges, and other sweets -- has been absolutely great: great taste, great texture, etc.

In addition to the sweets, I'd highly recommend the cashew savory tart. It's really delicious and flavorful, and not something that you can easily make at home.

Two notes: 1) I don't care about the fact that so much of their stuff (all?) is gluten free, so that's not affecting my rating at all. 2) Lots of people think they don't have a bathroom, but they do; it's in the back.

I love this place! I just wish it was near my house or my work. I'd love to go there all the time! They should open a second location downtown or on the west side.
