I'm in the final edits stage of my book at the moment and in an effort to stay on the sunny side about the seemingly endless tedium it's been great in the past few weeks to add some exciting new ventures to the pages of Food Lover's Guide to Portland.
One that I'm very excited about is Dovetail Bakery's soon to open retail location on Northeast Alberta Street. For years Dovetail has vended at farmers market and delivered wholesale only, with no retail location.
These lovely vegan baker ladies have been working around the clock the past few months to make the retail bakery happen and if all goes well Dovetail Bakery plans to ring in the new year and open shop on January 1st, 2010. The new Dovetail Bakery location has indoor and outdoor seating and plenty of bike parking in front.
Grand opening Jan. 1st, 2010! Dovetail Bakery 3039 NE Alberta St. Portland, Oregon 503.288.8839 Hours: Tue.-Sun. 8am-8pm
