“Great Place For A Snack In Monument Square”
Review of Foley's Cakes

Foley's Cakes
Ranked #11 of 28 Bakeries in Portland
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 May 2016

After having a birthday cake from Foley's I became a fan. There is a lot of competition for baked goods in Portland and each place has its own "thing". The location is really convenient, especially if you work in the surrounding office buildings. I love walking in and seeing the pastry staff quietly working on their individual tasks. They all look happy and happy employees make happy food!

So far I've tried the fruit turnovers and peach/blueberry muffins. My biggest gripe with turnovers from many establishments is the ratio of pastry to fruit filling. You typically have to eat the big, dry corner off and then take another bite in order to get the fruit filling. Foley's has a good ratio and that tells me some thought went into their product, very smart. The peach muffin is my favorite, the blueberry was just ok.

If you are in monument square this is a perfect place for a snack.

I checked this place out when i was waiting for the Christmas tree to be lit. Had a speciality coffee, was not hungry so didn't try any desserts. But will definitely come there to try them ;-)

A small but wonderful place for a light snack after walking through downtown Portland. Have visited more than once and will return next time we're in Portland. Recommended by Portlandians to us as a special place with excellent treats. They were making Gingerbread men which looked and smelled amazing.

Friendly staff who explained all the different baked goods.Had chocolate chip cookies and they were big and moist and the lemon bar was good with a pinch of a tart to the flavor.

We made an appointment with Foley's and twenty minutes before our appointment they cancel. So we call and reschedule. We are both very busy, as we are planning for our wedding. We arrange our schedules so that we can both meet with Foley's for our cake tasting. We arrive super excited to try a variety of deserts and they hand us a cake in a box and told us to take it home, or they could give us some forks if we wanted. This is not what we expected. We thought, since we had arranged to be there at a specific time, that we would be sitting down at an actual tasting. Not handed a box! And we ordered vanilla cake with vanilla frosting and spice cake with cream cheese frosting. The cake they handed us was not one of each, or even a slice of each. It was a cake weirdly layered, with spice cake and vanilla cake, and I guess some kind of mix of cream cheese and vanilla frosting? Who knows. The cake tasted fine but the overall experience was lousy. The two young employees that we interacted with were very nice, it is not them that we are unhappy with. It was the experience of being canceled on right before our appointment, and then having our exciting tasting experienced be reduced to some weird cake in a box. We are definitely going with a different baker for our huge wedding. Foley's seemed to not care for our business, and we don't care for theirs!
