The only Oregon location of Japanese chain Beard Papa’s is bringing its signature custard pies to an outpost inside Beaverton’s Uwajimaya Asian Market. The little puff pastry filled with vanilla custard that oozes profusely at the first bite is quite a mess, but well worth it. Spice up your cream puff by changing its topping with a topping like strawberry butter or honey, or change your filling to chocolate or green tea. Don’t like cream pies? The fondants (think lava cake) and cheesecakes are worth enjoying. 10500 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy—DB

Carina’s Bakery

If vegan baked goods are your jam, Carina’s Bakery, which specializes in Swedish recipes from the owner’s family, is the place to get your fix. The bakery’s offerings also include a slew of gluten-free delights like the Danish Dream Cake (Drømmekage), a rich, but not too sweet option, finished with a coconut-caramel topping, and the surprisingly sweet Scandinavian Almond Cake. deliciously flavorful and moist. 4725 SW Lombard Ave #108 ILK

The dessert tray

The dessert tray is the epitome of IYKYK. While this small bakery, which has been in business since 1996, doesn’t offer much curb appeal, it makes up for it with sweet treats. A lot of its business comes from custom orders, but the shop has plenty to choose from on any given day, from cookies and bars to pastries like the decadent Chocolate Buttermilk Pie Filled with Chocolate Ganache and Lemon Curd. 11950 SW Broadway St—DB

The Golden Spike

A breath of fresh air for the stomach and wallet: La Espiga Dorada is a one-stop-shop for all your favorite Mexican breads, pastries, and sweets. Grab your tray and tongs and load up on shells, muffins, and some of the rather large donuts. Favorites like tres leches cake and flan are also available near the register, so leave room. 18350 SW Tualatin Valley Hwy—DB


Less than a mile from the Nike Campus is a GOAT-level business in its own right. Oyatsupan has built a reputation for quality Japanese sweets, attracting local customers from Beaverton and beyond. We’re raving about their melonpan and shokupan (Japanese milk bread), but they’re also serving up stellar croissants from the sweet, like apple bug, to the savory, like jalapeno egg cream cheese. Take your goodies to go, or take a seat in the airy, stylish space between remote workers and friends catching up. 16025 SW Regata Ln—DB

Every day

It’s easy to get overwhelmed at Tous Les Jours, the French-Asian-inspired chain that serves up hundreds of baked goods. Our suggestion? Go for the taste. If plain croissants and donuts are what you prefer, skip the usual and opt for a lightly dusted red bean donut, or a spinach feta danish, a flavorful but not overly filling option. 11735 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy—DB
