My partner and I are both gluten intolerant and we were greatly anticipating the opening of the new location. We drove an hour to get to the new location from where we live. When we got there however, the pictures of full display cases were greatly exaggerated. It was disheartening to see such a small selection (2 scones, 4 pieces of focaccia bread, and a only some of the loaf breads listed online) as opposed to what was shown on the website. We asked about hamburger buns and were told that these are only available on Saturday and even then the bakery sells out of them quickly. We were both so disappointed with our experience. Hopefully others have better luck.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience! I will have to say that all my trips have been made in the morning (before 10 am). While the counter has been full of goodies, they're always pretty busy so I could see how they'd sell out fast. I hope next time you try to make it in the morning when there's bound to be a better selection.

Otherwise good to know about the hamburger buns!

I was so excited when New Cascadia moved in walking distance from my house. Rice bread from Whole Foods and Trader Joe's just does not cut it.
To cut to the chase, the female owner (Teresa) has a sour personality most of the time, and when paying $13 for a loaf of bread, a Portlander typically expects to be treated relatively well. I am usually more than happy to support local businesses and love to see them thrive, but I have to admit I wouldn't be sad if this one didn't. Most of the bread there is so hard you could beat someone over the head with it and send them to the hospital. Be weary of buying a loaf that they measure by small (1/3 of a loaf) or large (1/2 of a loaf). You never end up with what you pay for. 4 out of 5 times if you purchase a large they actually give you a small (I don't mean to sound neurotic, but I thought I was going crazy so actually started measuring what they gave me...which showed a 3 inch difference in the sections that were given to me!). On the other hand, the sweets are pretty exceptional and always worth the price. There are some lovely people working there too.
I don't mean to sound bitter, and I suppose I really do hope they have success...but please give your customers a smile and stop ripping them off...even if you aren't meaning to.
