Since opening its first location 10 years ago, St. Honoré Boulangerie has become a Portland institution, known for introducing Portlanders to old world French delicacies. On Thursday, Dec. 5 it is crossing the Willamette River and opening a new bakery-café on Portland’s east side at 3333 SE Division St. To celebrate becoming part of the SE Division community, St. Honoré will be donating a percentage of its first week of sales to neighboring schools. Schedule and schools include:
- Dec. 5 - Richmond Elementary School
- Dec. 9 - Abernathy Elementary School
- Dec. 10 - Hosford Middle School
- Dec. 11 - Cleveland High School
The new location will be open 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and changes things up a bit while still celebrating its Portland and French roots. It will offer the same authentic French fare as its existing locations and introduce Alsatian inspired specialties, an all-night happy hour and boast the city's widest selection of apple ciders on draft. Highlights from the new menu include a variety of Tarte Flambées, Spaetzles, Kougelhofs, Chacuterie Board, Cheese Board, Onion Soup, Alsatian Slaw in addition to a variety of pastries and desserts.
Also at the new location owner and master baker Dominique Geulin continues his ambassador roll by introducing an authentic French cider experience to Portland. The bakery-café will feature nine taps, the majority of which will be artisan ciders. Tap flights will be available and cider will be available by the glass, or served in traditional French pitchers and bowls. Bottled local and Normandy import ciders, French and Oregon wines as well as beer and specialty coffee drinks made with Caffé Umbria’s coffee will also be available.
The design evokes a warm, inviting French bakery café with rows of wicker baskets and a glass-encased display of intricate desserts. The bright open-air kitchen allows guests to interact with the crew and watch as bakers bake breads in the clay firebrick oven. Rustic wooden communal table and the seating area at the outdoor patio provide an authentic European flair. Exterior and interior tile work crafted by artisans in France, create a unique look and feel that are iconic to authentic French bakery café.
