While the matcha craze has certainly slowed down, the love for it hasn’t dwindled. Matcha has become a staple beverage option at coffee shops around town, and the number of places serving it in dessert form only seem to keep increasing. With such a high demand for the green tea powder, it’s no wonder shops are getting creative with the matcha desserts, from crepe cakes to gateau basque. While some spots on this map have been around for a while, many are new or offering new desserts this year, including the matcha cafe Maiko in Southeast Portland, which opened in in late 2019. Below, explore the wild world of matcha desserts across the greater Portland area; while many of these spots also offer matcha lattes, those looking for more matcha drinks can peruse the cafe and boba maps.

Note: On November 18, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown initiated a two-week pause on Oregon indoor and outdoor dining; that pause will last at least four weeks in Multnomah County. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point, however, the status of these restaurants may change soon; it’s best to call or check social media accounts for recent information.
