    Amazing pastries and quite good coffee. Get a pain au chocolat when it's still warm. More: bit.ly/2vmesoi

    We stopped by this place when we visited Portland a few years back. Now we make a point of going here every year. The baked good are superb. I think their Ham & Cheese Croissant is the best I have had in years. They are very serious about their coffee and I have yet to have a bad one there. So, if you are in the area around Powell's and you want a little treat, go here. I know we will the next time we are in Portland

    Went there early on a weekday morning, and there were virtually no customers there! There are only a few stool chairs on one wall, so seating is limited. It's mostly a "to-go" kind of place that's clean, white and modern. The pastries are displayed in an odd way, which makes it look there is more variety than there actually turns out to be. I wanted a vegetarian savory bakery item, but couldn't find one!?! So, I got a berry croissant that was actually quite tasty. I have eaten their items at different locations around town, but this is the first time I visited their actual store. Yummy looking selection I don't see elsewhere. While my friend complained about the service, I found the counter gals just fine. Pearl Bakery is better ... but if you want to try a new place for any reason, walk down the street and check out this place.

    I live in the neighborhood and used to stop in frequently for their very nicely prepared food items (salads, breakfast sandwiches). They have recently remodeled to an over-the-top pretentious Clockwork Orange unwelcoming nightmare. No menu, over priced coffee and a couple of bakery items. It does smell really nice to walk by on the outside however,

    We stumbled across this place on a walk in the Pearl District. Interior is super modern, and coffee and croissant were both top notch.

    Nuvrei has some of the flakiest, most buttery and delicious pastry in town. Their cappuccini are delicious, and their fruit danish are some of the best I've eaten on this planet. I quite love their gluten-free chocolate cookies and their cinnamon rolls that look like Princess Leia hair buns. It's small and you can't always find a seat, but snag one if you can and be grateful for takeout.

    Visited during a weekday for a light snack. Shop is very modern and clean. ALL the pastries looked delicious. We ordered an almond croissant ($3.75, vanilla almond cream), and a salmon pretzel ($6.50, cream cheese spread containing cold smoked lox style salmon, dill, and fried caper on a poppy seed pretzel bagel). Pastry was very good, the salmon bagel was disappointing. I love bagel & lox, but this cream cheese spread just didn't satisfy my taste bauds. Also, the bagel was not made to order, so not really sure how long it had been sitting out on display along with the other sandwiches. Stick with the pastries and I'm sure you'll be a happy customer.

    Very interesting take on croissants - more filing than actually flaky pastry - almond chocolate is wonderful, rose pistachio less so. Knavery appears to have made changes since I was last there in April - pastries cheaper (!!) and more varied.

    This rating is solely for the delicious macaron bar, Mac Bar, downstairs from the original Nuvrei bakery. I've always thought they had the best macarons in Portland. Then I spent time in Paris and Mac Bar is on par, if not slightly better, than Laduree and the like. Kudos! Nuvrei itself has a few tasty selections but service tends to be apathetic and unwelcoming, which is too bad. Service is much better in the cookie cave below.

    Nuvrei is a great place to stop by for a light breakfast or snacks. The pastry bar is filled with croissants, scones, cookies, and caneles. There a few croissant sandwiches and bagel sandwiches. The ham & cheese croissant is delicious. Ask them to warm it up. If you want a sweeter treat, order the almond croissant. The Mac bar is downstairs and that is where you can order your macroons. They have a variety of flavors that rotate. When we were there, the Mac bar had earl grey, rose, lemon, blueberry, and salted caramel.

    Food is awesome!! I had the occasion to use the catering side of Nuvrei recently. Only a small order, which may not have been how they would make $$$$ but I was disappointed with the way the business was conducted. The person who I was working with, seemed to have days off just when I was trying to finalize the order, with no one else knowing about my order, and when I was trying to call to see if I really was going to get my order I was told that half the order was not available due to some family issues. Not the best way to run a business! Not sure I would use their catering again, but would certainly go back for their macarons

    We popped in for an afternoon pick-me-up during an afternoon in The Pearl District and wowza! Nearly tore the other's from their hand; shared a decadent chocolate croissant that set a new standard. A berry scone was a taste sensation too. Both were sensational. I'm thrilled we got brioche for tomorrow's breakfast. Next time, will try savory pastries. P.S. My Pearl salon always has a selection of Nuvrei macarons for guests and they're wonderful.

    We grabbed breakfast here and loved it. The breakfast sandwiches were fantastic, the lattes might have been the best we've had, and the macarons...oh my word. Worth every penny! I got dark chocolate, white chocolate, violet and rose. We're definitely coming back the next time we visit Portland.

    I grabbed a bacon cheddar scone, a gruyere pretzel and several macarons for breakfast and sustenance on my cross country plane ride home and I couldn't have been happier. The gruyere pretzel was delicious, definitely a quality gruyere and not overly salty; the macarons were delicately flavored, not to0 sweet and the cream was very buttery; but the real winner was the bacon cheddar scone--I did not end up eating it until 15 hours later and it remained moist and delicious--I was surprised and delighted. If I lived in downtown Portland, this would be a regular stop for me.

    Ham and cheese croissant and everything bagel with cream cheese are both awesome. Masala chai was a bit on the sweeter side.

    We stoppped by for a quick breakfast on 4/27 based on Trip Advisor reviews. We ordered a Sesame Croissant, choc Croissant, plain croissant (with jam and cream cheese), a raspberry Macaroon plus 1 latte to share. The croissants were delicious! They were definatelt the best we've had! Super light and airy! I wish we had bought a few to take home. We'll be back next time we're in town.

    Actually far better than Little T, Nuvrei's pastries are decadent. While it is debatable in a blind fold test whether anyone could distinguish Nuvrei's chocolate almond croissant from a similar ultra high quality bear claw is questionable given that the croissant component is a modest 20% and the bear claw, 80% this is an outstandingly good pastry well worth the walk - in fact the necessary walk from Pioneer Square probably qualifies the Nuvrei croissant as a dieting aid. Well worth a visit.

    Wow! So glad we found this gem (thanks, TripAdvisor.) I had the trout bagel sandwich, which was delicious, and a Cappuccino, also amazing. I don't usually like flavored late's, but my husband's vanilla late is delicious as well.

    Can't beat the French Macaroons and the warm Croissant. They also serve a variety of bagel sandwiches but I have never tried them. Always go In for a classic croissant: warm, flaky, buttery and light. Coffee is a bit pricey though, even for the Pearl

    Stopped by to pick up Parisian macarons and found them to be delicious with interesting array of flavors offered. From the basement location we went to street level for cookies. Chocolate walnut cookies was delicious and tasted so good with the raspberry macarons! Heard the chocolate chip was good, too but did not taste it. Will go back next time I visit Portlandia.

    Had a chopped chicken salad croissant. It was really fresh. We also ordered a scone and a Danish to go. Nice selection of pastries. Also excellent. Staff were friendly and eager to be of service. Clean and self-bussing.
