Bakery Verbena

Hi! We're hard at work baking, cooking & sharing our love of good food. Our passion is using the freshest ingredients available, create a great savory or sweet breakfast and lunch along with Caffe Vita coffee, that you can take away or eat in!

Breads, pastries, sweets and savories, soups, sandwiches, selection varies daily.

[04/13/11]   Kari Westphal's "April Showers" is all hung at the bakery and we can't wait for her opening show Friday from 6-8. All part of the U Art Walk. We have food, refreshments, and music for the show, so stop in and say hi!

Now that's a latte - courtesy
of Chelsea, our latest addition to the BV staff.

Taste of the day Saturday: try
something different - yellow curry peanut and sweet.

Tommy and Williams getting our spot in the p patch ready. I love my staff!

Wine, dine and impress friends with a memorable and classic dish Chef’s corner Chef John Exter Blue.

Hey Jack, its so nice to see you get some deserved press! My friend Jack Exter used to chef and live right here in the U District till he moved East. Try out his take on Seabird Victoria w/ Sake Butter Sauce recipe using chicken & lobster at This seabird isn’t a gull or tern but a modern classical dish that combines poultry and seafood. Accompanied by a lively sauce with Asian and French connections, it has complex flavors but can be simply prepared.

Had to share the first image from Kari Westphal's "April Showers" show here at BV on April 15th. Go to her website to see some more outstanding landscapes - I really like the Sister series she painted. Stay tuned for special events we are planning for that night!

The King of Lyons was in the kitchen
yesterday! Thanks for the delicious meal - Jan and staff.

Oh and just pulled warm Black Currant Scones from the oven a couple minutes ago and finished up the focaccia's today which are topped with Fresh Tomato Watercress or Portabella Provolone.
