NE Portland Bakery is right across the street from Popina the Portland Swimwear Boutique. Delphina’s began in the back kitchen of Delphina’s Restaurant which was making its own bread nightly for its dinner customers. Three partners, Al Edelman, Michael Cronan, and Stan Nowack, had a dream to take this bread to the streets, and soon, a delivery truck rolled out in the early morning hours to bring hot, freshly-baked loaves of this bread closer to more people.The Mistell’s soon joined this team, in 1985, and the bakery thrived. The restaurant is long gone, Carolyn Mistell is sole owner of Delphina’s Bakery, and the Portland tradition lives on and includes a whole line of artisan breads and breakfast pastries, still baked and delivered fresh daily. Over the years these breads and pastries have been shaped by a passionate love for tradition, excellence, and quality of product and of customer service.
Delphina’s strives that when you bite into one of their crusty baguettes, traditional signature sourdough boules, rich buttery scones, delicate rum raisin brioche rolls, or our famous Portland buttermilk coffee cake you will feel the history of off-the-beaten-path travels to bakeries around the world including Paris, Italy’s Cinque Terre, and even Beijing, and brought back home to Portland.
Delphina’s has a Bakery Café on NE 42nd Avenue where you can sit down and enjoy a sandwich made on one of their fresh baked loaves of bread or a cup of Illy coffee with one of their many delicious breakfast pastries. Delphina’s add’s no preservatives to their products and use the highest quality ingredients available.
In addition to Delphina’s Cafe on NE 42nd Avenue you can find Delphina’s breads and pastries at Zupan’s Markets, Trader Joes, Peet’s Coffee and many more fine stores, cafes, and coffee shops from Vancouver to Corvallis. Many people in NE PDX know Delphina’s from the Hollywood Farmers market where they have a booth.
