Under Construction: Portland Patisserie

Steve and Michelle Corry have applied for a liquor license for Portland Patisserie, the new bakery/cafe they have under development at 46 Market Street.

The cafe will serve “classic French pastries along with crepes, sandwiches, salads and coffee” as well as pies, cakes and other French baked goods. The full draft menu can be found on pages 58-62 of the City Council agenda. Here’s a small  excerpt:


Portland Patisserie is scheduled to be open 7 days a week, 6am to 8pm. In addition to the baked goods the cafe will stock a selection of wine, beer and champagne for retails sale and will sell specialty foods such as French cheeses, charcouterie, spices and fresh-baked breads.

The Corry’s recently were issued a building permit for the space and so construction should be starting up soon. They hope to have Portland Patisserie open in the March/April time frame. The floor plan has a what looks like a central retail display area and seating for 33 at tables around the perimeter of the room.

  1. Good use for a space that hasn’t really been used well in a vey long time. The last use was as a demo office for a condo development project on the East End.

    It’ll be interesting to see if the hours stay as long as they’ve got here — a place open for breakfast and lucy usually doesn’t also do dinner as well. That said, I want to see how their chocolate crossaint holds up to the number of good ones being baked in this market already.

    Of course im also interested on what coffee they’ll be using.

  2. With Tandem, Ten Ten Pie and Standard already bring excepitonal pastry to the table, I may need to renew my gym membership with the Corry’s jumping into the pile.
