I used to live around the corner from this bakery and was totally addicted to it...sure I ventured out to other bakeries I loved; but, this is where I would come after a hard work week for a special petit four (always sad if raspberry filling ones were sold out but lemon was a great 2nd choice)...donuts, everything was sooo...

We ordered a "doll" cake for our granddaughters 6th birthday over the phone. There was a miscommunication and when I picked the cake up the frosting was white with the doll holding a spray of roses (looked like a wedding cake). I asked if there was anything they could do as I had ordered the frosting in pink. The baker/decorator... More

I wish this bakery was in MY neighborhood. Am totally envious of anyone who lives withing 5 or 6 miles of Helen Bernhardt. The midday selection was remarkable and it was difficult to choose just a few items. They all looked fresh and delicious. Settled for a florentine, a piece of shortbread, some tiny macaroons and a bag of cheese... More

Before the guy who invented the $5.00 donut came out of the womb, Helen Bernhard was feeding delicious baked goods to Portland. Inexpensively. If you haven't eaten something from here, you should. You'll still have enough money left to buy a coffee, and maybe even some change.

After eating at the Cadillac Cafe, I stopped by here for some pastries. I ordered pecan sticky and a cinnamon roll. Both were really good. They have a great choice of baked goods. I will definitely be back.

Nothing trendy about Helen Benhard! I recently bought my wife a birthday cake. She told me it was the best cake she ever had. The donuts are great, as are the cinnamon rolls. A perfect example of a great neighborhood bakery. And don't miss the half-price Sunday sale!

Go on Saturday morning for the best selection! They are amazing! And make beautiful cakes too. Small parking lot but they service quickly so we have never had an issue finding a spot. Try the cake donuts they are awesome!
