Being a serious coffee city, it makes sense that Portland is also home to many excellent breakfast pastries. You’ll find some of the best, and most unusual at Voodoo Doughnut. We originally were tipped off to this place by Roadfood.com user Mr. Chips, who described it as a “great place to view Portland’s strong Goth culture as well as sample tasty donuts.” Yes, there is a strong counter-culture ambience to this bakery that looks a little like an after-hours club; whether or not it’s Goth, we cannot say. But we can tell you that the donuts are dandy.

There are beautiful old-fashioned cake donuts with crunchy crust and creamy insides, puffy raised donuts, and donuts topped with powdered sugar, multicolored jimmies, and all sorts of flavored glazes. The menu lists such intriguing mysteries as a no-name donut, a dirt donut, a cock & balls donut, a dirty snowball, and a diablos rex. When we first visited, there was an item listed on the menu as a non existing fritter,” its cost null.

The pastry I recommend the most is one to which Mr. Chips alerted us: a bacon-maple bar. It is a substantial buttermilk long john frosted with maple glaze and festooned with strips of bacon that somehow, magically, retains a welcome crunch. What a great all-in-one breakfast!

Note: Formerly one-of-a-kind, Voodoo Donuts now has stores at Universal City Walk in Hollywood, Universal Orlando Resort, Denver, Austin, and Eugene, Oregon.

Probably because it is the home of Starbuck's, Seattle gets credit as the Northwest's great coffee city. It is great, no doubt about that, but so is Portland, Oregon; and in our experience, the cupcakes, donuts and other pastries in the City of Roses are without peer. Here are a handful of our favorite stops…
