A French-inspired bakery in the PDX, serving up artisanal breakfast sandwiches, donuts, and more. Real men totally eat quiche.
Blue Star's donuts are made from a brioche recipe that originated in France, and the buttery dough takes 18 hours to process before it's fried in rice oil the next morning and served fresh. The sophisticated flavors are a stark contrast to what's on the shelf at Portland's other doughnuttery, the eccentric Voodoo Doughnut. Look there for slabs of bacon and Oreo cookie bits; here you'll find blueberry bourbon basil glaze and chipotle chocolate ganache, and okay, a bacon donut dotted with crunchy bits.
Thanks to Pip's, you can start your mornings off right by getting your fill of made-to-order mini donuts that you can customize with toppings like raw honey, pink sea salt, Nutella, or cinnamon sugar.
Since 1934 the folks at Helen Bernard Bakery have been baking up delicious sugar-filled eats. Stop in for an Almond Ring Danish, Chocolate-dipped Macaroon, or one of their many sumptuous donuts.
