Baker Dominique Geulin has made things official at the third outpost of his Francophile St. Honoré Boulangerie, which opened last week on somehow-still-developing SE Division Street. In a departure from his NW and Lake Oswego locations, however, Geulin's east side bakery/cafe expands its savory menu to offer an all-night happy hour that swaps beer on draft for 10 ciders on tap (and several more available by the bottle). The space — and menu — embrace an Alsace theme: The cafe's custom painted tiles were handmade in France, and the pottery and bakeware dotting the space was also imported from the French region. A striking statue of the bakery's namesake, the patron saint of bakers, was commissioned from a Polish sculptor who now happens to call Portland home.
Geulin's signature French pastries still stock the counter, but after 4p.m., the "Apero" menu offers tarte flambées baked to order, spaetzle, charcuterie and cheese boards, and kugelhopf, an Alsatian bundt cake served with rum butter sauce and fruit compote. Evening dishes can be paired with ciders by Salem's EZ Orchards, the Michigan-based Virtue Cider, and Washington's Finnriver; beer drinkers will find one tap dedicated to a rotating Commons Brewery offering. St. Honore is open now. Hours of operation: 7a.m. to 10p.m.
