Grand Central Baking Company Restaurant Review

: There are several branches of this bakery-café around town, but a remodel greatly expanded the seating capacity of the Hawthorne outpost. It's a good place to relax with a scone, jammer, cinnamon roll, muffin or a hand pie, along with an espresso beverage made with Portland's Stumptown coffee. The bakers do a nice job with savory tarts of all sorts, typically packed with seasonal vegetables and local cheeses. Pick up a loaf of artisan bread or perhaps order a convenient boxed lunch. Sandwiches range from a Rueben made with house-made corned beef, to chicken salad and a turkey and chutney. Grand Central also offers refrigerated puff pastry and pie crust to go. In warm-weather months, the covered side deck is a choice spot to while away a leisurely morning.
