Foodie Friday: A very quick trip to Portland

I do not get to travel to Portland, Oregon as often as I like but a few weeks ago, I was fortunate to have a great meeting with my friend Scott Haines – a Databricks Beacon, an awesome engineer at Nike, an amazing person in general! Even though his meetings were in Beaverton, I was able to convince him to come over one of my favorite districts in Portland – the Northwest District.

In addition to be enjoying the general vibe of the district, it holds one of my favorite French bakeries РSt. Honoré Bakery (the following is picture from their NW Thurman location).

They always have a great selection of breads, pastries, and sandwiches. My wife and I love this place so much that I carried an extra bag with Tupperware specifically to carry them back to our home in Seattle :).

Here’s a small selection including blueberry lemon danish (top), tart abricot armande (almond apricot tart, left), and my new favorite – grapefruit pistachio tart (right).

And to finish things off, a quick stop just a couple blocks away at my new old favorite – the Dragonfly Coffee House. While new to me, the coffee house has been around since 2005 and one that I will frequent when I pop on down.
