Located in nice residential NW, this cafe is busy with locals and for good reason, their sandwiches and soups are freshly made. We stopped by for lunch and liked their banh mi as well as the soup. Not easy to get a table as others...More

Ken's comes recommended for pastry, and does not disappoint. This is real pastry, not soggy bread passing itself off as croissants. The contents of the display case change every day, but they are an exquisite selection of beautiful, and tasty, jewels at all times. If...More

How do you measure a French bakery? One of the best measures would be how flaky and buttery are the croissants? Ken's makes some of the best I have had, including ones in France! My partner's breakfast croissant with orange zest was mouth-watering (and warm!)....More

Been wanting to try this for a couple years (not from Portland) and finally got a chance. It's a lovely, peaceful spot I could hang out at. The dessert I tried was not overly fabulous, but I would not hold that against them - it...More

My first visit to numerous Portland bakeries (1st visit to PDX) didn't disappoint. My husband and I had a delicious lunch at Ken's. He had a moist and tasty pulled pork sandwich and I had the very rich and delightful veg version of a croque...More

Long before the likes of Roman Candle or the Bake Shop showed up on the scene, this bakery was at its current location on 21st Avenue. Decent size seating area with a good selection of bread, pastries and soups/sandwiches. I got a 'seasonal upside down...More

The croque monsieur and turkey sandwich are really good. The bread used is the proper classic baguette. So if you are not into crunchy bread, then it's not your place for bread and sandwiches. Their salad selection looks really good and interesting. I am certainly...More
