What do you do when all that morning coffee is beginning to make you tremble all over? Ideally, you reach for a breakfast pastry, which is what this map is about. From galette pastries brimming with fresh Oregon fruit, to croissants as good as any you might find in France, the world of Portland breakfast pastries is nookier and crannier than a Thomas English muffin. The bakeries below all have a long roster of morning snacks to give you a sweet start to your day.

1. Bakeshop

Copy Link
5351 NE Sandy Blvd
Portland, OR 97213
You don’t have to visit the bakeshop of 2016 James Beard award-semifinalist Kim Boyce to taste what she’s been cooking—you can find her baked goods at more than 30 coffee shops and cafes scattered all over town. But you should. Mainly because you’ll be treated to the full gamut of the flavors she likes to create. And you simply can’t leave without at least buying one of her famed figgy buckwheat scones for the road.

2. Fleur De Lis Bakery & Cafe

3930 NE Hancock St
Portland, OR 97212
(503) 459-4887
Visit Website
Greg Mistell’s bakery does all the things a bakery always does: quiches, scones, and sandwiches made with fresh baked bread. But it also does something really, really well—perhaps better than any other bakeshop in town: the croissant. They’re soft, chewy, flaky, and very, very buttery. Order yourself a cappuccino and a croissant and see for yourself.

3. Grand Central Baking Company

4412 SE Woodstock Blvd
Portland, OR 97206
What do you get when you cross a muffin with a croissant and a sticky roll? You get the Grand Central’s Monkey Muffin, which is essentially a caramelized sticky bun with flaky, torn pieces of croissant baked throughout it. Bring your own wet naps.

4. Ken's Artisan Bakery

338 NW 21st Ave
Portland, OR 97209
(503) 248-2202
Visit Website
Ken Forkish’s Alphabet District bakery has long been known for doling out to-go loaves, dine-in sandwiches, and cups of hot coffee. But few in town can bake a croissant as well as Ken. Some come with seasonal berries, some come with ham and cheese, but there’s nothing like keeping it simple with a good old plain one.

5. Lovejoy Bakers

939 NW 10th Ave

Before its lunchtime crowds roll in, Lovejoy Bakers gets to work on Danishes, scones, ginger biscuits, and tea cookies. Its lemon poppyseed muffins and pan au chocolates simply can’t be beat.

6. Pearl Bakery

Muffins, gibassiers, and rugelach. The bakers at Pearl Bakery do each and every one of these pastries with devoted precision, and all of them are worth dropping by for. But the real reason to visit are the Danishes, which always come filled with seasonal fruit. Pro-tip: It’s worth the wait till pear season.

7. St. Honoré Boulangerie

2335 NW Thurman St
Portland, OR 97210
(503) 445-4342
Visit Website
Tarts, croissants, and puff pastries can all be found at this classic French-style boulangerie, but nothing is as delicate and as sweetly creamy as St. Honore’s strawberry millefuilles. The downside? They only get made when strawberry season rolls around. The upside? Strawberry season isn't far away. In the meantime, try the bakery’s croissant aux amandes, which come filled stuffed with almond cream.

8. Tienda Santa Cruz

Copy Link
24 SE 82nd Ave
Portland, OR 97216
(503) 408-4896
This Mexican restaurant-market is known for it’s no-fuss decor and its on-point and very affordable savory menu. By all means, indulge yourself during lunchtime. Just make sure that you know its affordable puff pastries make a great breakfast pastry—and the best thing is: Each one goes for well less than $1.

9. Woodlawn Coffee and Pastry

Copy Link
808 NE Dekum St
Portland, OR 97211
(503) 954-2412
Visit Website
Gretchen Glatte learned her grandmother’s baking recipes from her mother, and what results from all that may just be this town’s butteriest and flakiest pie crusts. Sure, the fillings—which range from seasonal fruits to pecan and banana cream—are all executed well. But those crusts—that’s the part that’s the star of each slice’s show.
