A new series is here! So excited to share this with you guys! So here’s the plan, I want to write about my favorite spots to eat while I am in Portland, as well as when I travel. I will be highlighting a new restaurant, bistro, cafe, or coffee shop once a month. I am so excited to photograph and write about my favorite spots to enjoy great food and coffee. Hope you are as excited as I am about this!
I met my siblings at the Alberta Barista location. We swung by Petit for a baguette for dinner, it was a quick in-and-out, but I wanted to linger and taste the insane looking pastries in the case. The cool thing about petit it that it has a formal restaurant, as well as the grab-and-go pastry and coffee bar. I was able to finally return to Petit for a real lunch, it didn’t disappoint. I was able to get a table quickly, and the food and service were both exceptional. Keep this in mind: French Onion Soup.
(Ratings done on a scale of 1-5, 1 being, “ok, I mean it’s fine.” 5 being, “Oh, wow. Just wow.”)
Name: Petit Provence | French Bistro & Bakery
Location: NE Alberta st, Portland, OR
What I ate: Monte cristo and French onion soup
Bread rating: 3
Pastry rating: 3
Favorite things: I love the decor in this cafe, its so very chic, it reminds me of The Grand Cafe in Oxford.
Waiting for a table: I have been here when the wait has been a couple of hours, but this past Saturday, I got a table in 15 minutes. But, if you’re just wanting a pastry, you can always just grab and go from the pastry counter.
