New businesses are popping up all over the neighborhood! We visited a very pretty new one on Friday, which was the day before the Jewish holiday of Passover (which started at sunset) and also the Christian holy day of Good Friday.
This wonderfully PINK patisserie (that means a fancy bakery) was decorated with soft pink silk flowers covering the walls and delightful neon angel wings that you could pose in front of. Doesn’t Auntie Bridgett look cute?
Inside the glass case, lovely pastries were lined up. Croissants, cookies, macarons, slices of cheesecake, and even colorful donuts that looked liked shiny jewels. We chose a chocolate chip cookie to share at the shop and a slice of Tonka bean cheesecake for dessert later. Tonka bean tastes like vanilla! Who knew?
The staff was busy making and displaying the new goodies, because there were a lot of folks coming by and business was brisk.
The cookie was delicious, and sitting in the sun watching the world go by is a Portland treat I have really missed. I am happy to see new businesses growing like our spring flowers.
