Chocolate Caramel Pistachio Cake

You know that giddy (and relaxed) feeling of knowing you can order anything you want on a menu? In Portland, that is extremely easy – and I know I am lucky to have not only so many options, but incredibly awesome options.

Today I am over at Gluten Free Portland talking about all the deliciousness that is Petunia’s Pies & Pastries.

Sage Fizz Cocktail

We sampled quite a few things from their sorta-new savory menu, along with a couple cocktails and several desserts.

This sandwich:

Tomato, Mozarella Pesto Grilled Sandwich

 Tomato, Mozzarella, Pesto Grilled Sandwich

…one of my favorite sandwiches on their menu.

Yep, I said one. Because I have many favorites.

I have been back three times since this particular visit.

Passionfruit Cake

Coconut Berry Passionfruit Cake

This cake.

It needs to be a wedding cake.

Chocolate Caramel Pistachio Cake

Chocolate Caramel Pistachio Torte

 This one can be the groom’s cake.



Petunia’s Pies and Pastries is located at 610 Southwest 12th Avenue downtown Portland, and opens at 9:am each day. 

Please visit Gluten Free Portland to see my write up of Petunias Pies and Pastries – there are many more delectable photos and descriptions to see. Say hello to my friend Dr. Samantha, tell her I sent ya!

Even more reason for me to visit Portland!

Just a blog stalker/ reader. I had no idea you were in Portland!
I was just in Portland, how did I miss this?! This is unacceptable, I have to go back. I went to Back to Eden which was incredible, but this looks above and beyond. I went to their website and might have drooled on my keyboard :X


16 Kristina Sloggett June 3, 2014 at 7:02 pm

yes Gaby, next time you are in our Vegan Wonderland you MUST visit Petunias! so so very good! (and also let me know, I can meet you there!!) :)
