    I love about 2 hours south of Portland, and every time I visit I make a stop at their kiosk! Their bread freezes very well, and now I have a stockpile in the freezer for whenever I get the bread urges. Best of all though are their parisian macarons, absolutely LOVELY!!!

    I visited the bakery a couple of weeks ago after hearing about it. We live south of Portland and the trip is well worth it. My Granddaughter cannot tolerate gluten and she was so excited to be able to eat the baked goods she loves. She thanked me over and over again. What a treat for her to get not only great bread for sandwiches, but cookies, pastries, pretzels, etc. I bought a little of almost everything and froze it in small portions. What a treasure we have here in our own backyard!

    I live 5 hours north of Portland, but we’re moving there this summer. On every trip we make down there, I stock up on their breads. They have GF sourdough!! it makes amazing breakfast toast. The seed bread is to die for, those little pizzas are the perfect road food for the drive back home, and every one of their baked goods is spot on fantastic. I love these folks, and I’m glad to see them getting some recognition. their products aren’t just substitutes, they are the real thing and you can taste the love.

    I live in Pendleton, 3 hours East. Found out from another blog about the bakery and on my next trip to Portland it was my first stop. Cinnamon rolls that taste like cinnamon rolls! Sourdough that tastes like sourdough! Ah, I could go on. It’s an amazing bakery and I’m so grateful they are in business. Salivating until Tuesday when I’ll be back in town!

    I just came from the Kneading Conference in Skowhegan, MA. I was mistakeningly told that creating gluten free artisan bread (such as your gluten-free baguette above) was not possible only gluten free bread loafs were possible. Do you teach others how to make your gluten-free baguettes?
    Thanks,

    Hello,
    I just found out about your bakery. I have celiac disease and I’m having a birthday! I’d like to order a cake for approx. 6 people. Is this a round or flat 1/2 sheetcakeand what is the cost, please? I would want to pick up on Sat Sept. 6 for a next day birthday. When do you suggest I order?
    I’m also planning to visit!
    Thanks
    Robin

    I live in Portland, and I LOVE New Cascadia Traditional. They are at the Farmer’s Market outside my front door every Saturday, so I always eat GF pastries for breakfast on the weekends. It doesn’t get much better than that.

    However, I wanted to ask if you have heard of Babycakes on Broome Street (one block south of Delancey)? My brother lives in Brooklyn, so every time I visit I make a stop at Babycakes. To attest to it’s wonderfulness, it was Zagat rated this year, and has been written about in numerous national (and local) publications. It’s not only Celiacs who are taking notice. I HIGHLY recommend it.

    New Cascadia is soo great! I’m really sad they moved though… they used to be on the same block as my apartment, so I stopped by all the time, but now they’ve moved, and I’m a bit too lazy to go across the river and find them…
    The only thing I did not like about their bakery stand was that they stored their poppyseed covered bread in the same containers as the non-poppyseed covered bread. Since I am very allergic to poppyseed, this prevented me from trying the majority of the bread there… my first eating a baguette from new cascadia, I made the mistake of not checking for poppyseed in my eagerness to try the gluten-free egg-free bread and ended up breaking out in rashes on my arms.
    I am just hoping that their new bakery is larger, and therefore has a different storage system. maybe I’ll try and get some fresh bread in the future :)

    Their new location at 1700 SE 6th Ave is very inviting and a nice place to hang out and enjoy their great cupcakes and other items. Yum!

    D- for being jerks.

    The customer service is terrible.
    The store front is dirty.

    They used to have “normal” breads when at their location on 23rd. But they don’t make french bread, baguettes, or white breads any more. Everything had seeds in it, or on it. Which is fine, if that’s what you want. But the selection was underwhelming: four types of bread to choose from.

    More importantly, the staff were jerks. Un-helpful, unwilling to check in the back for more product, and unwilling to answer questions about the breads (like, what is the taste like, what is the constancy, et).

    Totally not worth the trip across town into the warehouse district to get a $6 loaf of bread.

    I’m sticking to making the Bob’s Redmill Breads.

    I stopped by this bakery yesterday with my family. The pastries, muffins, and cupcakes are so good I almost cried! After two years of being gluten-free I have hope for eating baked goods that taste normal. My brother and dad both scarfed down their desserts and reluctantly admitted that yes, they were enjoying gluten-free treats. I’m excited to see what New Cascadia has to offer in the future! Stop by and try a muffin…you’ll be hooked!
