Well, it's official... I experienced the best vegan baked goods I have ever tasted while visiting Portland last week. While wandering the Alberta Arts District I happened upon Back To Eden Bakery Boutique. Halfway through reading the writing on their window I was on my way inside and very excited.
Even the shelves of candy bars that you see in this picture are vegan.
Beautiful antique shelves and kitchen accessories give the shop such a unique look
From the second I walked in and saw the cases of goodies I knew I would be making some very hard decisions. Cakes, dessert bars, cookies, cupcakes, pies, truffles, and soft serve caught my attention in all directions.
I finally settled on the Everything Cookie, Pumpkin Whoopie Pie, and a Hazelnut Chocolate Bar. There was a lot of "wow", "oh my gosh", and "seriously?" with just about every bite that Don and I took of all three. I am still in complete awe that the cream in the Whoopie Pie was vegan... incredible!
It has already been decided that Back to Eden will be a regular stop on all my future trips down to Oregon. There is still so much left that I need to try. Portland's newest vegan bakery did not disappoint. If you are in the area don't miss it.
