Brothers Gabriel and Josue Azcorra began selling their breads and pastries under the Dos Hermanos name in 2018, gaining a following for their sweet-and-savory hojaldra and specialty loaves studded with beans. In October 2023, the bakery moved from North Portland to Southeast, and now anchors the Stark Street Chefstable complex also home to the Lil America food pod, Fracture Brewing, and Cache Cache.
With the new 7,500-square foot facility — which is quadruple in size from its original North Williams Avenue location and includes its own grain silo — the bakery has scaled up production, now making around 18,000 loaves of ciabatta alone per week. On December 22, the brothers opened the doors to the bakery’s cafe space, which sells bread and serves Yucatecan pastries, Tostado Coffee Roasters coffee, and chopped sandwiches from Lardo’s Rick Gencarelli. The bakery is baking 16” plain and sesame baguettes exclusively for its sandwiches, like the Papa Gabe (ham, escabeche, queso fresco, salsa verde, chicharrones) and the Beast Master (roast beef, horseradish, chips). Dos Hermanos is located at 1015 SE Stark Street.
