Portland’s food scene seems to get better every month, and that includes an ever expanding offering of sweets. So while it’s impossible to mention all the great ice cream, pastries, cookies, and plated desserts that we love in the Rose City, here are some that we’ve recently enjoyed.

Some themes? Oregon’s climate is perfect for many fruits, including berries and apples, and they’re used in abundance. And you can just as easily get great incarnations of classic American treats like chocolate chip cookies and doughnuts as you can perfect French pastries and upscale vegan sweets.

Coconut Dulce de Leche Cake From Petunia’s Pies & Pastries ($8)

“Layers of moist coconut cake, vegan cream cheese frosting, house made coconut dulce de leche, with flaked coconut to top it off. It’s moist, light, caramelly, melt in your mouth goodness. This is our best selling cake.”

Petunia’s Pies and Pastries takes a lunchbox staple to new heights with the Sweet ‘n’ Salty Sandwich($6.50). This sticky sweet creation is covered with crunchy cashew butter and thick slices of banana, drizzled with agave, sprinkled with cinnamon, and served with apple slices and a Petunia Pig-shaped cookie.

If you’re following a vegan or gluten-free diet, restrictions are a way of life, especially when it comes to dessert. But at Petunia’s Pies & Pastries it’s the exact opposite: absolutely everything is gluten-free and vegan. “I wanted to take the guesswork out of it all,” says Lisa Clark, who opened the brick and mortar shop in March, three years after she began selling her goods at local farmer’s markets (which she continues to do—see a list of local markets and retailers here).


Lisa, who herself has a gluten allergy, clearly derives a lot of joy in setting up locals (and visitors) with sweets they can eat without guilt or distress. “People cry when they come in and find us for the first time because they haven’t had cake in 10 years,” she says.

Even if you don’t have dietary restrictions, the bakery is still worth a visit, whether you go for a gooey salted caramel cookie bar (the shop’s top-selling item), or make a trip early on a Saturday or Sunday morning for freshly fried doughnuts. With so many worthy treats to choose from, it’s tough to know where to start, so we turned to Lisa for her top 5 picks. Click through the slideshow at the top for the full list.

“In 2010, Lisa Clark  started selling gluten-free Petunia’s Pies and Pastries at a NW Portland street fair as well as the PSU Portland Farmers Markets. Her popular gluten-free and vegan baked goods were flying off the tables each week. As someone growing up around food but diagnosed with severe food allergies as an adult, Lisa wanted to make things she could eat that others with food intolerances could enjoy too. “It is super rewarding to make (safe) things for people. I like to make people happy,” said Lisa. She adds, “I know how it feels to go somewhere and have nothing to eat.” Opening her first Petunia’s Pies and Pastries brink and mortar location (610 SW 12th Ave) in March 2013, Lisa is very excited to offer Portland a 100 percent gluten-free and vegan bakery where customers can come in and enjoy treats, wine, coffee and more. cover_may-june2013delightglutenfree

MIX Magazine Names Petunia’s One of Portland’s Newest Hot Spots! p2s71t58_4401MIX-Graphic2

Petunia’s Pies & Pastries

Everyone loves office heroes — those who surprise us by stocking our break rooms with fresh-baked goodies. Everyone except vegans. And those avoiding gluten. Well, downtown office workers can now please all of their co-workers by popping into Petunia’s, where display cases are filled with gluten-free and vegan cookies, tarts, scones, cobblers and sticky buns. And as the name implies, Petunia’s does pies, both whole and by the slice. Just polished off a hearty supper at Gruener? Petunia’s keeps late hours, meaning you can swing by for post-prandial, dairy-free ice cream sundaes and banana splits. You can even enjoy a nightcap there, too. Aviation Gin’s Ryan Magarian designed the specialty cocktail list using ingredients like bubbly, gin, creme de violette and chartreuse. They go down easy, and with pastel hues that match the shop’s colors, they look pretty, too.
