Nuvrei is a little café in the heart of Portland's Pearl District with some of the most delicious treats in town. Their French-inspired pastries and macarons are simply amazing - the kind of sweets that make you unabashedly lick your fingers and reach for any lingering crumbs. In January, I had the opportunity to photograph their beautiful space and delicious creations for Broussard Communications.
The main café space upstairs has the pastry counter and coffee bar with sweets, bagel sandwiches, espresso, and my favorites, housemade granola, almond chocolate croissant, and double chocolate brownie cookies. Downstairs is the MAC Bar, a space dedicated solely to the delicate French confection with a view of the open kitchen. Nuvrei offers traditional macarons as well as unique flavors, such as blood orange, violet, earl grey, black licorice, lychee and rose, and toasted coconut in a rainbow of colors and seasonal hues. Such a treat to shoot!
