I have been visiting Portland and eating at Ken's Artisan for 10 years. From the first bite to the last I have always been delighted with the flakiness of his croissants, especially the Oregon croissant--a must have! All his pastries, breads, and other assorted sweets...More

After reading about Ken’s, my wife and I dropped by for lunch. Nice assortment of fresh breads and pastries, but pretty limited seating. By “hovering,” we managed to snag a table. Even though busy, the staff was efficient in taking our order and getting the...More

My wife and I must have eaten here all five days we were in Portland even if it were just a pastry a coffee. Ken's makes all pastries the old fashioned, time consuming, painstaking way and it shows.

Visited Ken’s for breakfast, lunch, and even afternoon coffee — every time wonderful. The quiche is delicious and light, and all of the pastries are fantastic. We’ve enjoyed stopping in for a quick coffee and treat, while staying near by. Wonderful experience each time.

I stopped in to get a bite at lunch. I had the baguette with ham, butter, and cheese and a caramel pecan tart. Both were quite good. The baguette was a real baguette, crusty outside and soft inside. It made a nice sandwich. It was...More

We went there for breakfast. Right after opening it’s all calm and you’ve time to pick out your treat. The almond croissant was really good, but slightly too hard baked. Our son is a brownie expert and found the chocolate coating too thick but the...More

This is the best bakery in town! The Brioche Bun was the best piece of bread I’ve ever eaten and the apple cinnamon tart was unbelievable! I would highly recommend stopping by for breakfast or lunch! The food is incredible!

Located in nice residential NW, this cafe is busy with locals and for good reason, their sandwiches and soups are freshly made. We stopped by for lunch and liked their banh mi as well as the soup. Not easy to get a table as others...More
