There is a blessing in the culinary world, and it’s baked goods. Pastries are more of a lifestyle than simply a bite to eat, and there are some stellar shops in Portland that bring a whole new level to the genre.

Sparrow Bakery PDX offers an astounding collection of gold standards, fanciful twists on classics, and the atmosphere that every MacBook-clad artisanal lo-fi lover can only dream of.

Something beautiful is happening in the ovens at this local bakery, and they have the modern chic and retro redux of a shop design that begs to be visited.

What to order

Throw a dart and make an order, and you will not be disappointed in the slightest. From macarons to deliciously brewed and poured coffee beverages, Sparrow is soaring above nearly all other PDX favorites. However, there is one special item, dubbed their “specialty” that you’ve just got to try.

I like long walks on the beach, and Ocean Rolls from Sparrow Bakery. This hand-laminated swirl of dough is packed with cardamom and vanilla flavors and takes what you think you might love about twists or cinnamon rolls to a level beyond most human comprehension. It’s an em-ocean-al experience.
