Portland’s bakery scene has always been nationally significant, with local shops using locally milled, diverse grain flours for cakes, scones, and breads; even so, the city’s bakers and pastry chefs have continued to innovate, creating a wider spectrum of patisserie and other elaborate pastries available in town. On this map, find the city’s most noteworthy pastry shops for freshly baked pastries like croissants, sweets like cookies, and aesthetically meticulous desserts and mousses. Note that this map focuses exclusively on bakeries with a wide range of offerings, skipping spots that exclusively specialize in bagels, cakes, cookies, and doughnuts — you can find those on their own maps. Also, pastry aficionados can often find stellar breads and baked goods available through storefront-free subscription programs like Starter Bread, or at farmers market stands like Mio’s Delectables.
