St. Barbra's Pinoy Bakery is a cozy Filipino bakery in downtown Portland, Oregon. They serve authentic Filipino pastries and classic Filipino hot dishes to go, and offer catering.
If you're craving some hot, fresh Filipino pandesal or ensymadas, head downtown to Portland's St. Barbra Pinoy Bakery.
This cozy little Filipino bakery was opened in 2015, and recently got a facelift of paint from neon orange to a bright, cheerful sea blue. Inside you'll find Filipino favorites that they make fresh each day.

St Barbra Bakery is a small shop, with enough room for two to three different ordering parties to stand while ordering.
You can either walk-in or call ahead and place your order. If you're placing an order for hot food or a larger order, I suggest calling ahead.
Like most bakeries, the scent of baked goods is intoxicating when you walk into St Barbra's. And you can watch them baking some of the baked goods in the workspace behind the ordering counter.
Come for the pandesal, but definitely don't stop your order there.
This Filipino bakery regularly has ensymadas, Spanish sweet bread, Pan de Coco, Pan de Ube, and a variety of empanadas.
The ensymadas were $2.75 each. We ordered a regular ensymada and an ube ensaymada.
Left: Spanish sweet bread ($4 for 8)
Right: Chocolate Chip Scone ($3.50)
You'll also find desserts like ube cheesecake and leche flan.
We really enjoyed all of the pastries we've had from St Barbra Bakery. They're made fresh, with love, and most are large-sized pastries.
In addition to a daily assortment of pastries, this Filipino bakery also serves hot dishes. You should call ahead to order any of the hot dishes, as they make them to order.
You can order pansit, adobo, bistek with rice, tapsilog, tosilog, and more.
During our last visit, they had several Pinoy breakfast burritos in the food case that you could order as a walk-in.
St Barbra Bakery FAQs
Currently, St. Barbra Bakery is take-out only.
You can walk in and order any items that they have available. That said, if you are ordering more than just a few of their everyday popular pastries, your best bet is to call ahead. They told me you should definitely call ahead if you are ordering a large quantity, and if you want to order hot food main dishes like adobo or pancit.
The small bakery is located in the southbound interchange between Barbur Boulevard and SW 6th Avenue - a section of street where many people get confused about which lane they should be in.
Watch for the bright blue painted building on the right hand side of the street. There is street parking all around there; just be careful since it's an area of many lane changes. If you hit the Under Armour track and headquarters, you've gone too far.
Yes, they take cash and credit. However I learned (after the fact) that if you pay by card, they'll charge you a 4% processing fee. So for instance, our order of Spanish sweet bread was $8.32 instead of $8. Not a big deal, but something you should know.
