Nuvrei sells wholesale to many of Portland’s cafés and restaurants, so you might already be familiar with their brioches, chocolate chew cookies, and cinnamon rolls. Yet, Nuvrei also has a little storefront in the Pearl District basement hidden on NW 10th Ave. Now a long-awaited expansion is nearing completion, with the opening scheduled for late August.
The popular baked goods source for many of Portland’s coffeehouses will move its operations upstairs, adding a larger retail space with a small counter overlooking NW 10th avenue. If all goes well, about eight tables will be available along the street. The menu will be expanded to include more extensive offerings such as salads and sandwiches. Coffee will be from Coava.
Nuvrei owner Marius Pop worked under François Payard in New York before returning to Portland to open his own shop.
Nuvrei is located at 404 NW 10th Avenue, Portland OR. 97209. You’ll know you are there by the aroma of baking pastry.
