Pix Pâtisserie

Pix Pâtisserie is a little slice of France that landed in Portland Oregon in 2001, offering both innovative and traditional French desserts, chocolates and house made ice creams alongside a plethora of top notch beverages. Pix houses a proper Spanish tapas bar named Bar Vivant. Owner/ Chef Cheryl Wakerhauser travels often to France and Spain to better understand the atmosphere, culture, flavours and techniques associated with French pastry, Spanish tapas and the tasty beverages that accompany these dishes. These aspects are then recreated in Pix with as much authenticity and quality as possible. Pix Pâtisserie offers a wine list with a focus on small producers that push the boundaries to make exciting and exceptional wine. The list showcases 1,200+ selections, including 700+ champagnes in formats from demi bottles to methuselahs, a remarkable range of over 170 sherries and a notable collection of dessert wines, including 1907 madeira. The approach is to create a list that’s accessible and affordable. Pix want their customers to enjoy a great glass and have an opportunity to try something new and unique, all while staying in their price range. They offer full disclosure, with disgorgement dates on champagnes and bottling dates on fortified wines.
