This is an institution in Portland, with bread and cakes and baked goods of all kinds! And every Sunday they have some of their wonderful offerings at half price. I get my bread there every week, and then a little something sweet to take home. The staff is really helpful, but it is good to get there early, as there... More

When you need that very special cake -- this is the place. They've been at it the longest and know the difference between a sheet and a bomb.

A little bit of Portland history here! Quality product, great service, and one of the last old time bakeries in town! A must go to business, and there are so many other goodies besides cakes!

Stopped in for a continental breakfast and ordered a latte with a French roll. The latte was excellent, as was the roll, so I bought a pastry for later, which was equally good. Aside from coffee and a wide assortment of individual pastries, the bakery has lovely cakes that were quite popular; several were purchased while I enjoyed my breakfast.... More

I used to live around the corner from this bakery and was totally addicted to it...sure I ventured out to other bakeries I loved; but, this is where I would come after a hard work week for a special petit four (always sad if raspberry filling ones were sold out but lemon was a great 2nd choice)...donuts, everything was sooo...

We ordered a "doll" cake for our granddaughters 6th birthday over the phone. There was a miscommunication and when I picked the cake up the frosting was white with the doll holding a spray of roses (looked like a wedding cake). I asked if there was anything they could do as I had ordered the frosting in pink. The baker/decorator... More

I wish this bakery was in MY neighborhood. Am totally envious of anyone who lives withing 5 or 6 miles of Helen Bernhardt. The midday selection was remarkable and it was difficult to choose just a few items. They all looked fresh and delicious. Settled for a florentine, a piece of shortbread, some tiny macaroons and a bag of cheese... More
