I’ve had Fleur de Lis Bakery on my list for a while as I’ve enjoyed their baguettes at restaurants in town (I wish I could remember which ones). But ever since I went to Eb & Bean (read about that here!) where I got some incredible fro yo topped with some delicious cinnamon sugar donuts from Fleur de Lis, I was even more adamant about checking it out.
So when I was planning one of my last brunches in Portland before our big trip with my girlfriends, I suggested doing Fleur de Lis.
Fleur de Lis has a large patio out front and a really nice, bright indoor space right on the corner of NE 40th and Hancock, which is just off Sandy.
Just as expected their donuts were fantastic, especially the glazed donut which was sweet and fluffy.
They offer a delicious brunch, with items like omelettes and Cinnamon Roll French Toast – yes you read that right, they take a cinnamon roll then slice it and turn it into French Toast. Unfortunately it wasn’t as rich as I was expecting/hoping (I know, I’m absurd that I wanted more sugar).
My favorite was this little shortbread bar topped with chocolate and walnuts. Sure, it’s not really “breakfast” but who cares! When you’re out to brunch, anything goes.
