From a PB & J served on the best bread in town, to the Lovejoy Roast Beef (pictured above), it would take you nearly a month to sample each of our sandwiches. Speaking of the best bread, when is the last time you had a freshly baked Kaiser Roll? A taut exterior, soft and chewy interior and all those nutty poppy seeds are the perfect package to hold our house-made roast beef. We season and slow-cook it ourselves, slice it thin and stack it tall – then add melt-in-your mouth caramelized yellow onions and organic sharp white cheddar. A devilish horseradish aioli adds just the right kick to each bite. Served hot… and with lots of napkins.
The turkey sandwich – voted by our customers as ‘most popular’ – is a glorious combination of salty + sweet, soft + crunchy, light + rich. House-roasted turkey is generously layered on our rustic country bread with perfectly ripe avocado and smokey planks of bacon. A shmear of slightly sweet mascarpone cheese plus another of house-made cranberry chutney act as the icing on the cake, so to speak. If you haven’t had this re-imagined classic yet, you must… read what a fellow Portlandian writes about it: click here.
Taking a break from bread? May we suggest the Lovejoy Salad? Weighing in at over a pound, this bountiful array of meats, cheeses, brine-y olives and soft boiled eggs is a meal and a half. Organic baby lettuces are gently tossed in our signature tarragon dressing, then topped with tender white meat turkey, dry-cured salami, kalamatas, and an egg cooked so perfectly, you could cry. What makes this salad extraordinary is the Italian San Daniele prosciutto (cured for 16 – 18 months) and the Bleu d’Auvergne imported from South central France. Truly a feast.
P.S. Once you’ve had a Lovejoy lunch, you may not need dinner!
Summer may have taken its time getting here, but now the outdoors beckon. Picnic with us at Lovejoy Bakers! Dine on the boardwalk, take a Lovejoy sack lunch to Jamison Square, or pick up a cookie and stroll around the Pearl District. May we also suggest an icy, watermelon-guava lemonade? (Fresh-squeezed of course.)
Over 6,000,000 served! Just kidding. The Lovejoy Deluxe, pictured above, is one of — if not the — most popular menu item. Here’s why: perfectly fried egg, thick-cut bacon, Bleu D’Auvergne cheese, and tarragon-dressed frisee on a freshly baked ciabatta roll. Served from 6am to 8pm.
Speaking of Deluxe, this is our ample (understatement) Lovejoy Salad. Viridian Farms greens are topped with house-roasted turkey breast, San Daniele prosciutto, assorted cured salame, kalamata olives, and a perfectly soft-boiled egg.
So whether you visit us by bike or streetcar, by foot, motorscooter, hybrid or tour bus, come hungry and prepared to relax. There is so much to enjoy at Lovejoy Bakers.
