When asked what kind of bakery I would like to open someday, I respond by saying that in my dream world it would be great place to take a date with sit-down service, cocktails and wine; a giant display case filled with beautiful pies, cakes and cookies would tempt you from the moment you walk in the door; and of course, it would be known throughout the city for its desserts. If you love desserts and have been to Portland at least once, this might sound familiar since my dream bakery is basically Papa Hadyn. It is pretty much the ultimate dessert location in Portland, whether you are there to celebrate a special occasion (we were there to celebrate our 2-year anniversary!) or just to satisfy your sweet tooth. While they offer great lunch and dinner, it’s really the desserts that brings people in the door.
I’m sure you are thinking, “Erin, this is BAKERY bingo. Frozen yogurt is not a pastry nor is it a fancy dessert.” Ok that is all true, but sometimes you just gotta get a lighter dessert. As always, after dinner last night I was hoping for some dessert but I didn’t say anything as I was trying to be good this week. As luck would have it, Brice asked me if I wanted to get fro yo. Why yes, I would! It’s fat-free, high in calcium and high in protein – so it totally doesn’t count in my book! 🙂
