We love our bakeries like we love books and strip clubs. This category got many passionate comments, some accusing me in advance of ignoring their favorites. A total of 51 different bakeries were nominated (10 less than last year – interesting), with exactly 1000 votes cast. After the top five winners, the bottom fell out, with many places getting one or two votes.
There are so many new bakeries in Portland, it is time I updated our old bakery roundup. I’ll put it on my list for after the bulky jacket season begins.
