Back in the early years of the cupcake trend, Saint Cupcake came on to the Portland scene and soon thereafter, their mini- and full-sized cupcakes started making appearances at nearly every work event, baby shower and birthday party in town. The adorable Northwest Portland location was busy any time of day and those waiting in line for a box of take-away treats often fell for the pop-in-your-mouth mini variety knowing that no one would know they’d already had one when they went to enjoy another with the group. Now that is smart snacking.
In June, Saint Cupcake moved from its original location to a spot downtown along the MAX light rail line and within walking distance of many a commuter who will now be able to make their families and friends happy with a surprise box of treats any night of the week. Visitors to Portland should be happy, too — the new location is close to many downtown hotels. (Another Saint Cupcake is located on Southeast Belmont Street.)
The menu clues you in to which days select cupcakes are available, but in my opinion there is really no reason to look beyond the red velvet. Vegan options are available every day as well. Snack on.
