I have fallen in love with this company's Franz Bake Shoppe Ginger Snoppe Cookies, and I do eat them. I get them at Albertson's on Aurora Avenue North in Seattle. They are delicious, but there is one BAD problem with them: the ingredients include palm oil. Palm oil comes from Borneo, to which orangutans are native. The growing number of palm tree plantations for harvesting that oil is pushing orangutans closer and closer to extinction as their native habitats are turned into plantations. PLEASE, Franz Bakery, use a different kind of plant oil in your recipe, to lower the threat to the orangutans. The more of the wonderful species out there we lose, the more damaged Earth's biosphere -- and our own chances of survival -- become. Thank you, Yael Dragwyla, Seattle, WA (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We went to voodoo doughnuts as out of towners to see what the hype is all about. It was easy to find with fast and friendly service. The shop and workers were clean and courteous, especially given that we had a list of many we wanted to try. Prices on some were a bit outrageous ($8 for the cocky-n-balls) but all in all, they're great doughnuts and not something wed find in the small town were from. from
Great food. Great service, and great atmosphere. Went for lunch and had a great salad and calzone. My friend had soup and salad. It was all great. The owner Pat came and said hello to us and was so funny and friendly. Plus they bake! Bought a bunch of Italian cookies home and kids loved them. My new favorite dessert and lunch spot. A must visit.
Walking into Mahri's Bakery & Deli is like walking into your memories of grandma's kitchen. Everything is old-fashioned home-style. You are greated by Mahri herself. The food is exceptional regardless of what you may order. It's a joy to be there. Take the kids so they too will have "taste good memories".
Best almond croissant and fresh full flavored macarons! I tried salted carmel + earl grey macarons - I dare to say it's better than lette, bouchon, and Jim patisserie in LA. They use local heart coffee which I love. I can't wait to try all flavors - this is a must visit in the city amongst bakeries.
ken's artisan bakery serves up the finest in fresh bake goods and has exactly what you need to satisfy your sweet tooth!!! if it's just a cup of coffee your yearning for.....ken's artisan bakery has the beans!!! you will be pleased!!! sincerely, mr. kenny Douglas.
it is worth the effort! Sweetness Bakery & Cafe is tucked away in a small mall in southeast Portland. The variety of baked goods is unique and very tasty. Their weekend brunch is simple, but worth checking out. A hidden gem, in a big city.
By far, the best Italian bakery in Portland. Love all of the food.......,The breads are out of this world and the pastries are second to none! Just like Nana used to cook! The owner, Pat, always makes you feel like family!!!!
This is a place where you can buy a dozen mini-cupcakes to share with others. The cupcakes are moist and delicious. Frosting is unusually light and flavorful. You will most likely make more than one trip here.
THE BEST cake I've ever tasted! It was so light & fluffy. Not overly sweet either....well balanced flavors. Had the pistachio & was amazed at how tasty it was. I couldn't stop eating it!
