A Modern Pastry Luncheonette bound by old world charm, named after Maurice, Kristen’s French lop rabbit & constant for over a decade. As an homage to his companionship, goodness & generosity of spirit, it seemed a natural fit to baptize her dream shop with her beloved rabbit’s name. We are located in the Southwest corridor of downtown Portland, on a quiet tree lined street amid the bustle of bicycles, the iconic streetcar and a bevy of foot traffic. MÅURICE is a universe imagined by Kristen, animated by generosity, excellent products and celebrating the art of the pastry kitchen. Since opening in December of 2013, the restaurant has received numerous accolades, including a glowing review from The Oregonian, named one of Bon Appétit Magazine’s Top 10 Best New Restaurants in America 2014, and most recently, Destination of the Year by Portland Monthly Magazine. With beautifully executed cuisine & pastry, gorgeous teas, a bevy of vermouths, an eclectic wine program and gracious hospitality, we seek to excite, inspire, and transport guests with a memorable visit, to a place like no other.
