Perfect little spot - Edit

Went into Petunias today not knowing what to expect and was pretty pleased with it all. Not only do they have many cakes and cupcakes but they offer breakfast and lunch which makes its a perfect spot for meet ups.

Pros: cakes. all the cakes.

Soooo Yummy! - Edit

Everything is vegan and gluten free so the hardest thing was choosing what to eat. Everything I tried was delicious. Best vegan biscuits and gravy I have tried yet! so glad I came

Best Bakery in Portland! - Edit

When we visit, we work all our meals around being able to eat at petunias once a day. It doesn't matter if you're vegan or not, all of their desserts are absolutely fantastic. I am not gluten-free, and I do not care about gluten free, but Petunia's is my bakery of choice. Everyone who works there is very friendly. Their portion sizes fantastic, and their flavors are deep and developed!

Pros: Delicious.

Cons: Not in my area! ;__;

Tout simplement délicieux! - Edit

J’ai pris un pâté aux légumes pour le diner. Les légumes étaient frais et la pâte croustillante. J’ai pris un sandwich à la crème glacée pour mon dessert. Format copieux après un repas. Partage idéal pour 8.95$ US. Juste pour ce dessert, ça vaut le détour!

Pros: Multitide de choix de gâteaux , Déjeuner/diner/collations, Savoureux

Cons: Propreté des tables

very cute breakfast and sweets joint - Edit

Last day of the Portland vegan food tour. The breakfast sandwich with gravy on top... yummy! Had a way too big piece of cake and it’s so good. Recommend for sure. Maybe only on weekdays. :)

Unbelievably Bad Service!! - Edit

We go to this place all the time. and every time we go in we wait for a good damn 30-40 minutes. Just this last time, we went in. The girl in the pastel green dress finished all the customers in front of us. My mate orders... then we walk to the side and wait 20 minutes JUST FOR A SLICE OF CAKE!!

the cake was literally behind this girl. all she had to do was cut it and put it in a box and give it to us and we were gone! it would've taken less than 60 seconds! instead we stood there for 20 minutes waiting for her while she served 5 customers after us!

she finally cut his damn cake! and when we walked out we looked at eachother and said literally at the same time, "dude! wtf!!? are you serious!! the cake was right behind her!! just cut the damn cake and put it in the box so we can go!! are you f**ck*n* serious!!?... dude. NEGATIVE REVIEWS!!"

He was so pissed he pleaded I give him the site to post reviews on this dessert shop. we shop there all the time! he has spent so much money on them! and this is how they treat their regular customers!

I gave him 7 review sites! Go tell everyone your experience with these people...

Message to Petunia's:

yo! are you serious!? we are regular customers! we are busy professionals! we don't have all day to hang out in your cramped up shop! if you see the damn cake sittin behind you cut the damn cake and put it in the box! or we are going to shop at your competitors!! - time for you to wake up!!

1 star!

Pros: No pros, No pros, Dude, no pros!!

Cons: WTF 20 mins!?, standing there waiting in a packed shop!?, the cake was right behind you! cut the damn cake!

bad service - Edit

I would give one star if I could. The server was so cold and unhelpful, condescending even, we ended up not ordering and just leaving. We drove from California to try this place...

Major disappointment.

Cons: rude , poor customer service , lack of wanting to help

Perfect for sugarmonsters - Edit

Will totally satisfy (and then some) the built up sweet tooth you may have from so few bakeries having a decent vegan selection. Love the cake!!

Heaven! - Edit

What a rich Friday I have a amazing baked goods! So many options that your head will spin. Lovely ambience, great location, friendly staff. Ordered the granola with fruit, and my only criticism is they did not add bananas as listed in the menu. Will go back for sure over and over and over again.

Updated from previous review on 2017-10-15

Pros: Variety, Ambiance, Staff

OMG - vegan desserts! - Edit

I can usually find something to eat at most restaurants - with the exception of sweets which are usually loaded with dairy or eggs. I received a gift card for this place and I was in heaven! I went there with a friend and we had dinner and dessert - all so tasty. I will definitely be back!!

gluten free goodness - Edit

Nice spot in downtown Portland, has a really nice ambiance and the staff were really great. Pie and ice cream were great, as were the coffee drinks. Pizza was good but crust might need some tweaking.

Delicious breakfast! - Edit

The biscuits and gravy were very flavorful. My boyfriend loved his granola and we both loved the chai and regular lattes. We also tried the turtle cheesecake and it was amazing. This place is super cute and cozy. Staff was very friendly. Wish there was a location by us in New York/New Jersey!! We'll be back again to try the waffles and some cocktails!

We had no idea it was vegan! - Edit

We waited in line to ask "do you have any vegan options" and they told us "it ALL vegan." We were like a kid in a candy store. OMG. Amazing desserts that look like omni desserts and taste heavenly. The only problem was everything looked so good we had a hard time deciding. (You know how you're always limited by the number of vegan options?) This place is an awesome treat. I wish I didn't know about it. It could make me very fat... :P

Vegan GF Heavenly Bakery - Edit

Just when I think the vegan scene in Portland can't get any better, I discover Petunia's incredible bakery. Gorgeous cakes, pies, and pastries that just happen to be vegan and gluten free. These are creations that you can take home to your non vegan friends and they will be very happy!! I think my favorite offering is the Bumbleberry Pie, with several diffentbkinds of berries plus peaches. We took the pumpkin cheesecake to a Christmas gathering and it was gobbled up. The special cranberry pear pie was also fantastic. My wife, who is GF, enjoyed the first bagel that she has had in a long time. HIghly recommended!

Pros: 100% vegan AND gluten free, excellent quality, amazing selection of baked goods

Cons: none!

Has potential - Edit

We went for breakfast midweek only to find that most of the breakfast items are only available on weekends. So we had a bagel which was nothing special. They burnt my coffee so it was pretty undrinkable. My husbands coffee was fine though. I did have a cupcake which was lovely. Would go back again on the weekend to try other things. If my one cupcake was anything to go by, I would definitely recommend the cakes.

Pros: Yummy cakes

Cons: Boring mid week breakfast options

The cakes! - Edit

We were hungry and saw that this place was near us. We both had a main meal and shared a cake. The cake piece was huge! All of it was tasty but especially the cake. They were friendly too.
There were quite a few tables inside.
We would have gone more than twice (or was it three times!) but there was so much food to try in Portland. It was a difficult decision!

it's ok - Edit

The selection was amazing. The pot pie had not enough salt or herbs such as thyme. They lasagna had way too much cheese and nothing else to it. The mint brownies were super dry and not moist.

Petunia's cake and pot pie - Edit

This place was great. We ordered vegetable pot pie which came with small salad and beet salad. For dessert we had chocolate layer cake which my husband and I shared for 3 days after. Everything was gluten free and vegan.

Pros: Excellent food, Gluten free and vegan, Great staff

Cons: They are a bakery so no table service.

Vegan delicious - Edit

Found Petunia's booth at Saturday Portland Farmers Market at Portland State University. Talk about vegan deliciousness in baked goods! Gluten-free, too. Everything looked & sampled so good. Glad they take credit cards so I could indulge in their moist, soft, flavorful cream cheese and vanilla cream cinnamon rolls, millionaire bar, blueberry buckle coffee cake & peanut butter crispy bar. Looking forward to visiting the restaurant on my next trip to the area to sample their savory pastries.
Service was friendly, knowledgeable, even in the farmers market environment surrounded by lots of non-vegan vendors. Convenient, being at the market. Affordable, though I overheard someone complain about pricing. As a vegan home cook, good ingredients don't come cheap. Add in the skill level, and the pricing is right on.

Pros: Delicious vegan baked goods, Gluten free, Friendly knowledgeable service

amazing little place! - Edit

Had a good meal here. We had the pumpkin/rice bowl and the Mac and cheese. The Mac and cheese was a little oily but delicious. The bowl was amazing. Had pie and icecream for dessert. Great little place which is very stylish and it's always great to have a fully vegan bakery. Wish we could have eaten there again.

no good for me - Edit

If you're after cake it's fine, I was after a pie, they don't sell them, well not anything I as a Brit would class as a pie. So a long walk for nothing.

Cons: no pies

Highly recommend - Edit

This place is great for picking up a couple sweet treats. Slightly spendy, but you're paying for good quality food. They have a small food menu as well, and I've been impressed with it so far. Go here!

Love - Edit

I love Petunia's. It is a very cute place, and they have an amazing selection of vegan baked goods (blondies, cookies, cakes with slices as big as your head, etc) that make decision making darn near impossible. I especially enjoy their ice cream sundaes however. Most recently I had a sundae with a scoop of cappuccino and a scoop of vanilla, topped with caramel sauce, white choc. chips, and salted caramel cookie. It was heaven. In addition to the sweet stuff they do savory food. It is not as exciting as their other items, but all perfectly fine. Their mac and cheese is quite good and the bbq bowl is tasty. I will continue to hit up Petunia's every time I'm in Portland, probably more than once.

Pros: Vegan sundaes, Huge baked goods selection, Savory food as well
