Why We Recommend"Still one of the BEST bakeries in Portland, even after 20 years and now dozens of strong competitors. There is simply no bundt cakes anywhere to rival Pearl Bakery's Almond Bundt Cake and Super Moist Carrot Cake. Their breads are wonderful too. Plus the space itself hearkens back to the Old Portland that is rapidly disappearing. You can find me there a couple of afternoons a week, musing a cappuccino and slowly, slowly eating one of those life-altering cakes. :-)"
