The results here are a bit unexpected for me. Over the past year it seems like all the talk has been about Little T, but the competition was baked by Ken’s Artisan Bakery.

    I believe “all the talk has been about Little T” has come from a single source about their baguettes being the best in Portland, which I have found questionable.

    • Food Dude says

      I’ve heard quite a few comments about Little T, and what I’ve had from them in restaurants has been good enough to stand out and make me ask the source.

    The evaluation of bakeries might be better served if there were two categories: best bread and best pastries (sans muffins).

  3. says

    I really think Little T’s image was tarnished a bit by their decision to wholesale to Stumptown. I would say their in-house experience is better than Ken’s, but living closer to Ken’s and being able to pick up a fantastic Ken’s baguette at Whole Foods makes Ken’s the clear winner.
