Best Baked Goods in Bend
Mt. Bachelor Village vacation rentals offer so much adventure right outside your door! The Deschutes River Trail, SUP-ing in the Old Mill District, and miles of bike paths invite all of us to get “outdoorsy.” Have a foodie in your group? Mt. Bachelor Village is also well located to take advantage of Bend’s many great places to eat, including the town’s best bakeries! Get ready to inhale that fresh desert mountain air mixed with the smell of butter, sugar, and freshly baked dough! Bend’s bakery scene is on the rise, and these spots are worth the visit … and the calories!
- The Sparrow Bakery – With two locations, this bakery has quickly become a favorite amongst locals and visitors. No stop in Bend is complete without trying their Ocean Roll, a hand folded croissant filled with freshly ground cardamom, vanilla, and sugar. We also love their banana bread, and savory and sweet croissant selections.
- Nancy P’s Café & Bakery – Locals know this is the place to fuel up before heading to the slopes. Start your morning off right with a specialty coffee, and one of their famous savory pastry pockets filled with eggs, cheese, veggies, and your choice of ham, bacon, or veggies. Vacationing with your pup? Order a barkscotti treat too, and the whole family can enjoy their pastry (or full breakfast) from the dog-friendly garden patio.
- Village Baker – There is nothing better than freshly baked bread and butter! Stop by the Village Baker to pick up some fresh bread to enjoy alongside some home cooked meals prepared in your cozy Meredith Lodging rental. They offer an amazing selection of rustic, Old World breads, and some loaves with a twist, like traditional European-style country sourdough, walnut and raisin, Bavarian-style black butte porter, or cinnamon swirl brioche bread, perfect for French toast! They also serve decadent pastries, like their coveted cardamom brioche – dipped in honey butter and rolled in cardamom spice and brown sugar before baking.
- Too Sweet Cakes – We could not agree more with the Too Sweet Cakes motto that life is too short to not be sweet! Choose from croissant donuts, cinnamon rolls, doughnut holes, savory and sweet scones and croissants, and so much more! We recommend trying their toaster pastry, think a grown-up version of a Poptart – a blackberry raspberry pastry filled with vanilla bean glaze with cinnamon crunch pieces.
