Gluten Free Portland Series: Crave Bake Shop


Welcome to my second post on living Gluten Free in Portland!
These posts will pop up now and again to help others navigate the city while living gluten free.

Today's post is on gluten free bakeries.
If you are visiting the area,
I'd highly recommend doing a tour de bakeries.
Portland has some amazing options to choose from!

Coming at you today is a recap of Crave Bake Shop!

Crave Bake Shop
460 5th Street
Lake Oswego, OR 97034

Crave Bake Shop is one of my all time favorite places to visit in the Portland area.
In fact, I might be bold enough to say it is my favorite place.

I often use this bakery as my own grounds for bragging
to friends, coworkers, family, etc.
When people start launching into "I could never live without gluten" speeches,
implying that I must live a really tasteless existence,
I pipe up with:

"Well actually, there is this bakery that is all gluten free in Lake Oswego...
and it's so good she won Cupcake Wars...TWICE.
Ya, she beat out all that regular food you get to eat. TWICE"

And then I feel much better. :)

Not to mention the owner seems totally sweet.
I've never actually met her,
but we occasionally talk on twitter.
That counts right?
She also has a cookbook coming out soon,
so I am hoping to see her at a book signing in the future!

The entire bakery is gluten free,
so there is no need to worry about cross contamination,
and those of the gluten-free persuasion can order anything off the menu.
She also offers a select variety of dairy free options as well.

If you stop by,
I highly recommend the cinnamon roll.
My husband, who is not gluten free,
says they are the best cinnamon rolls he has ever tasted.
Once you are done with that,
be sure to also order the Hot Chocolate cupcake.
You won't be disappointed.
