Ken's Artisan Bakery
A chalkboard hangs above the counter at this Portland cafe, displaying a hand-written menu of drinks, soups, sandwiches, and salads. Seating consists of small, round, wooden tables and straw-bottomed chairs. A convex glass display case contains assorted baked goods, from praline macaroons to fresh-baked sticky buns. Stumptown coffee and espresso drinks and an extensive selection of breads baked on the premises are also sold. The popularity of Ken's ongoing Monday pizza night led to the creation of a second location specializing in artisan pizza pies.
