Grand Central Baking Company Restaurant Review

: This is the original outpost of the Seattle/Portland bakery operation. All the baked goods --- from a simple baguette to a flaky almond croissant --- are well prepared using quality ingredients. A remodel expanded the seating capacity, making it a nice place to relax with a scone, jammer (a biscuit with a thumb-size nugget of jam), cinnamon roll, muffin or a hand pie, plus an espresso beverage prepared with Portland's Stumptown coffee. The bakers also 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 with house-made corned beef to a classic chicken salad, or a turkey and chutney combo. Grand Central also offers refrigerated puff pastry and pie crust to go.
