Portland: St Honoré Boulangerie

by gigi on May 31, 2010

The last time Jenkins and I were in Portland, I read about a delicious French bakery called St Honoré Boulangerie that had a great selection of baked goods and sandwiches. I put it on my list of places to check out but it was pretty far away from where we were staying at the time […]


Portland: Pambiche

The last time Jenkins and I went to Portland, Lucy recommended that we check out Pambiche for some delicious Cuban food. It was the first time we’d ever had Cuban food and our visit to Pambiche was definitely the food highlight of our last trip. Not that I needed any urging to go back, but […]
