Best bakeries in the US? Portland has four of them

Posted: Updated:

Some of the best bakeries in the U.S. are in the Rose City.

The Daily Meal released its list of the 50 best bakeries in America and four of them are in Portland.

Pearl Bakery was ranked 10th, with Ken's Artisan Bakery coming in at No. 13. Grand Central Bakery is 28th and Little T American Baker is 32nd.

The list was put together from more than 1,400 bakeries using the criteria of whether they bake both bread and pastries, how long they've been around, if they bake from scratch, their "buzz factor," and whether they have notable or award-winning chefs.

A panel of experts also contributed to the rankings.

The best bakery in America, according to The Daily Meal, is Tartine Bakery in San Francisco. Macrina Bakery in Seattle is ranked fifth.
