BOO!

I mean, howdy Petunia’s fans!

Halloween is just around the corner, with under a week to go! We’ve got he bakery all dolled up in the most glittery Halloween decor we could find. We know that lots of you will be celebrating this weekend, so we’re making plenty of Halloween goodies for you to celebrate with! Starting this weekend through the big day on Thursday, we’ll have these Spooky Specials:

Witchy Whoa-reos
Pumpkin Walnut Cookies w/icing
Halloween sugar cookies w/icing & sprinkles
Candy Bar Brownies
Boo! Babycakes
Spooky Black & White Cake
Halloween sprinkles cupcakes
Snickers Bar Torte

Come in and see us to grab one of these scarily good treats for yourself, your kids or your Halloween party! We think they would make great additions to any trick or treater’s goody bag, but the frosting could get a little tricky. 🙂

We hope to see you soon, and Happy Halloween from all of us here at Petunia’s!

XOXO,
Lisa & the gang at Petunia’s Pies & Pastries.

6. Petunia’s Pies & Pastries – Portland, OR

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.

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.

Brunch & Bubbly: Mother’s Day @ Petunia’s!

Happy May Day Petunia’s friends!

Our flowers in the bakery reminded us today of our family May Day tradition. Every year .facebook_147015091when we were little, our mom would help weave paper baskets that we filled with flowers from our yard, and left on our neighbors’ doorsteps. Did any of you do this? With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we find ourselves filled with memories of our mom. She was the inspiration behind Petunia’s Pies & Pastries after all! To celebrate her memory, and mothers everywhere of all types, we would like to invite you to join us at the bakery this Mother’s Day, Sunday May 12th for our first Mother’s Day fête: Brunch & Bubbly!

To celebrate properly, we are having a pretty special contest! Please bring a photo and/or a note, story, memory or tribute to your mom. Whether it be your mother, grandparent, sibling, Aunt, friend, Dad or neighbor, we want to celebrate the mother figure in your life!  We will be posting your tribute in our bakery for the day. Our favorite submission will receive a $25.00 Petunia’s gift certificate!
Of course, we will be having treats exclusively for Mother’s day that are as lovely as they are delicious!

Brunch & Bubbly Specials:
Drink Specials:
Mimosa
Kir Royale
French 75
 
Treats:
Passionfruit French Macarons
Crème Brûlée
Lemon Coconut Cream Bars
Attendees who spend over $25.00 in the bakery will receive a gift Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Babycake. This babycake is also special for the day!

Lisa & Erica Clark
