PORTLAND — Vintage clothing, classic cocktails and historic ballrooms. It’s all part of Portland’s West End.

It’s an area now getting national attention as one of Portland’s hottest neighborhoods. Variety is the key word for this electric enclave sitting just west of downtown and south of the Pearl District.

The streets are dotted with small boutiques and loads of trendy dining spots. The New York Times recently took note of the area, highlighting several businesses that are helping make this area a must-stop for locals and tourists.

On Southwest 12th Avenue sits Petunia’s Pies and Pastries. It’s been open just a year and half. The cases are filled with vegan and gluten free sweets.

Owner Lisa Clark said a national mention has been very good for business.

People have called, emailing, inquiring about shipping, said Clark. Folks traveling, coming in with a copy of the New York Times, saying, ‘We read about you we had to come in.’ It’s been great.

Around the corner from Petunia’s is a door leading to one of the sought-after nightspots in Portland. It’s the Multnomah Whiskey Library.The walls are lined with 1500 bottles of spirits from around the world.

The West End continues to be redeveloped. Just a decade ago, storefronts were empty and buildings were rundown.

Not anymore.

We here at Petunia’s Pies and Pastries are about to open our doors for the first time, and we could not be more excited! Our 1,600 square feet location at 610 SW 12th Ave  is set to open to the public March 1st! We’ve been hard at work every day getting the bakery ready do do what we love, bring joy to our customers! So much thought and care has gone into every choice we have made in this process, and we hope you’ll see the proof in the pudding. Or, the cowgirl cookie, in this case. Bakery Window

Our location is a perfect choice. We just love the area. The hill, the character, the somewhat “undiscovered” idea of it here. We love the style of the older buildings, and the old church across the street reminds us of being in Europe, and it’s so peaceful to look at! We think this area is going to develop greatly in the next couple of years, and just had to be a part of the growth here.

Petunia’s Pies and Pastries’ first brick and mortar location will function both as our production kitchen and a retail storefront and bakery. We will serve an expansive selection of our pastries, signature items, seasonal specialties, and daily specials. These could be anything from waffle sandwiches to ice cream sundaes and bruleed banana splits! On the weekends we will serve up fresh batches of our famous doughnuts and sticky buns. We will have a small savory menu with sandwiches, salads and delicious healthy unique little bites. We plan to serve a selection of nice wines (and bubbly, of course), locally made gluten free beer and signature cocktails that can be paired deliciously with our desserts! Stumptown coffee and espresso will be proudly served. Everything will, naturally, be gluten free & vegan. Many other items offered will be soy free, refined sugar free, nut free, etc.

Owner Lisa Clark proudly presenting the bakery while under construction.

The whole feel of the place will be quintessential Petunia’s. Retro, fun, colorful yet simple, clean, classy and comforting. We have created a space that makes people feel happy, warm and full of life. A place where they can relax and enjoy Portland’s best dessert and treats, and feed a part of their soul. Dessert speaks to people. Food in general does, but dessert makes you feel special, makes your eyes light up, makes you smile, makes your heart race a bit, makes you remember being a kid and eating some cookies your mom made warm from the oven. That is what we will bring to customers. More than dessert, a feeling. That is what we love to do.photo

Sit back and enjoy the video below and watch how our bakery has progressed from bare to beautiful!
