A Visit to New Cascadia Traditional Bakery

There are several gluten-free bakeries in Portland, Oregon, and someday I hope to visit them all, but if you only have time to search out one during your visit, don’t leave the city without stopping by New Cascadia Traditional a dedicated gluten-free bakery located at 1700 SE 6th. Their products may also be found at the Portland Farmer’s Markets, Whole Foods Market, and several other venues in and around Portland.

They specialize in artisan breads, pastries, pies, cakes and cookies, and if you like coffee, they carry Stumptown, which is an added bonus! I came home with two loaves of Honey Gold bread that is excellent for sandwiches or a slice of toast; the texture and taste are both tremendous. But it’s all the other treats that are so hard to resist. Everything is baked fresh daily and I don’t know for certain but I imagine they sell out of most items. One of my favorite’s was a small little puffed pastry called a brioche. Inside the brioche was a nice little tasty treat of sausage and cheese, not over-powering, jut an added boost of yumminess in the center.
