Being asked my favorite bakery is like what I imagine parents go through when asked their favorite child (is that really a question people ask?). It is hard to narrow it down as there are so many great places in Portland. Once I think of one place, another 3 or 4 pop up in my head. Plus there are always new places to investigate like Frice, Milk Glass and Farina which are all on my “must check out” list currently.
So my answer usually depends on two things: 1) what part of town are you in or looking to visit? (Having a massive chocolate craving and having to drive 20 minutes, likely will not work, I speak from experience.) And 2) what kind of sweets are you in the mood for?
