GRAND CENTRAL BAKERY

Though Gwenyth Bassetti founded Grand Central Bakery in Seattle in 1989, it has turned into quite the mini-empire (with seven locations) here in Portland. Despite growing in popularity and size, it has managed to maintain a high level of quality and deep sense of community.

VAUX’S SWIFTS

Portlanders are perfectly content with waiting in long lines for a lot of things (namely, brunch), and though we hate to bring up that infamous Portlandia line, this city does have a rather healthy obsession with all things aviary. So, it would make complete sense that during every night in September, you’d find a whole slew […]

But sometimes it’s refreshing to hear, “Just shut up and eat!” John Fimmano brought this East coast mentality of enjoying straight-up, unapologetic food to Portland back in fall 2010 when he debuted the Shut Up […]
