The owner is very nice and friendly. Some of the food is really good but (for my tastes) most of the baked goods are over tooo dry and tooo sweet. Her rice pudding is FANTASTIC! My husband can't get enough of her lasagna! And I'm not a fan of the brand of coffee she uses, always tastes burned and I get a nasty case of coffee burps later. But we've found enough on the limited menu that we like and keep coming back when we are in the neighborhood.

Pros: Some very good food

Cons: Some not so good food and espresso

I had Mehri's do our wedding pies after asking where the wonderful pies at the Delta were made. I could not have asked for more. It is the best in town.

Yes, I've been to Pix. I don't care for it. Exclnt quality, yes, but I like American style deserts ( and I speak French and have lived in France, thx!).

So, onto the point: Notice how the two negative reviews are both written within a week of each other? Notice how they are both written by a person who has only written one review each? Fairly generic screen names? Both complaining about burnt coffee, pre-made cakes, and dirty kitchens? Yep, okay - grudge.

Fake reviews waste everyones time. Really guy? This is yr revenge? Some folks...

Mehri's is the best pie/cake/brownie in town. Period. Smashes bakery bar/st cupcake/black sheep whatever. Don't go if you don't like country kitchen and real people.

Pros: Possibly the best desserts in Portland

Cons: Kinda far out.

Mehri??s place is one of my favorites. The place is very homey and comfortable. It seems like she has a vast number of regular customers that come there often and they all know each other. It makes you feel like you are there with friends and family.

My husband and I travel from the West side of town there on Saturday afternoons. My husband can never get enough of Mehri??s enchiladas or the lasagna. They are the best. As for me, I love her deserts and sorry I cannot say that I have a favorite because they are sooo good. I always leave the place with a couple of extra ones so I can enjoy her deserts all weekend long even though it means 2-3 hrs of hard workout on Sunday and Monday to burn off some of the calories consumed :)

Pros: Best food and deserts and overall atmosphere

Cons: None

Mehri's looks like a quaint little unassuming place with bright green paint and flower pots outside, so I was pleasantly suprised when I first ate their and enjoyed the best quiche I've had in Portland. Mehri's food is consistently well seasoned, hearty and delicious. Her menu may be simple: sandwiches, baked goods, quiche and her daily specials (which may vary from garlic prawns to enchiladas to roast turkey to moussaka), but it's clear that everything is made with love.
Mehri's is not a fancy restaurant or an elegant French bakery, that's for sure, but her eclairs are amazing and I can't leave without taking one of her chocolate cupcakes home. Portions are huge, seating is ample, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Go in any morning and you're likely to find Mehri reading a newspaper with her police buddies, all while making you a mocha and checking the cheesecakes.
Portland might have some incredible haute cuisine, but their downhome cooking is just mediocre. Mehri's is a diamond in the rough here, supplying food that'll keep you going, your tastebuds excited and you don't have to wear a tie.

Pros: Good food, lovely people, decent prices, sunny windows

Cons: Menu is not super varied and you can't leave without a treat

There are a lot of bakeries in Portland, Mehri's is not one worth driving past Holgate for. And if you already live over there I'm sure you have found a better place for your morning coffee. They serve Caffe Umbria which I wasn't totally excited about, the woman who made my latte didn't seem to know anything about how a shot is drawn. The latte was old and kind of burnt tasting. I tried to rescue it by covering the taste in sugar, so I put some spoonfuls of sugar from the sugar jar in it and to my horror it tasted even worse..why? Because it was SPLENDA in the sugar container...with no label..gross, I threw it in the trash and hoped for better with the long piece of streudel I got. No such luck, the apples were so mushy, it tasted awful cold in my opinion (she offered to warm it up but when I realized it would be by microwave I opted out, I dont want chewy crust) The crust tasted ok but definitly not homemade. She seems to rely on the microwave a lot to heat up your food especially the savory food from the deli case. I have no reason to return back to Mehri's.

Pros: Out of the way in SE so I wont pass it much.

Cons: A lot of microwave use, frozen and canned foods. Seemingly no professional espresso training.

I once got a look at the kitchen and it was disgusting! Cross contamination everywhere, meat laying on counters with no cutting board, dessert ingredients right next to it. From what I saw on the food shelves in the back nothing seems to be homemade, canned tomato sauces, hollendaise sauces from packets,canned vegetables (this is portland, ever heard of a farmers market? or even a produce section?)STACKS OF PRE MADE CAKE MIX BOXES and brownies. Last time I checked I don't go to bakeries to get cakes made by Duncan Hines The owner seems to be running around like a chicken with her head cut off, trying to make espresso drinks (which by the way was horribly burnt, I'm guessing she has no training as a barrista) and also "cooking" in the kitchen. A complete rip off, and a health inspectors nightmare.

Pros: No one to bother you while youre eating your Duncan Hines cake, because there is no front help.

Cons: Nothing fresh, or legitmately homemade
