Jade Teahouse & Patisserie – 7912 SE 13th Avenue Portland, OR

Want to know Portland’s perfect lunch spot? Well, I found it! This time my Tangerine Tote and I headed over to SE Portland to Jade Teahouse & Patisserie, a delicious Vietnamese deli and bakery. I was initially introduced to Jade Teahouse & Pastisserie in December 2011, and since then I have fell in love with the the SE Asian and French fusion flavor. This local restaurant is owned by a mother + daughter duo,  Lucy and April Eklund. Lucy opened Jade Tea House after finishing an apprenticeship at Maison Carratié in France. The food showcased in Jade reflects Lucy’s knowledge of French cuisine with the accompanied flavors from SE Asia. Check out this tasteful menu below..

Jade's Menu
Jade’s menu is full of Vietnamese coffees and teas, baguette sandwiches, soups, salads, rice and noodle dishes. The prices are reasonable and the portions are perfect for sharing among 3-4 people.

The “Patisserie” name in Jade’s title describes the great treats and sweets you can find at this local eatery. The many selections of French/Vietnamese  inspired pastries like French Macarons, Lady Fingers, Rice Pudding, Vietnamese Wedding Cake and sesame balls are displayed in the glass case by the register.

I love finding local lunch spots, especially with great company. I recommend this great restaurant spot for a quick and satisfying meal.

I will continue to make the trip to Jade’s Teahouse & Pastisserie for their delicious Vietnamese ice tea, stir fried rice noodles, and sesame balls – these three items are my favorite! It’s delicious and truly a Portland gem. Stay tuned for  more Tangerine Tote’s local business features! xx

  1. That place is great and I just love the owners. They gave us a full run down on why there was also French desserts in there. Such an interesting story. You must go back and try the glass noodles. Now I’m craving this place again.

    • Thanks Amy! I love it there; it is so cute and delicious. Glad you love it to. If you have references of other local businesses in Portland I would love to hear where you recommend to go so I can feature it on Tangerine Tote. Thank you! x
