Cheryl Wakerhauser (a.k.a. Pix), is known for her eccentric and distinctive style that intertwines flavors and textures. After a short-lived career studying to be an astronaut, Cheryl trained at the pA(cent)tisserie of MOF Philippe Urraca in Southern France. In 2001 she moved to Portland and set up shop at the Portland Farmers Market. The next year, the first Pix PA(cent)tisserie opened its doors, bringing European flare and edible art to Portland with an assortment of elegant pastries and handmade chocolates. To complement each delectable masterpiece, Pix PA(cent)tisserie serves an array of dessert wines, Belgian beers, and fine spirits. Each location serves our signature pastries but with each shop having its own personality
When I discovered Pix, it was like discovering a secret cache of treasure! Wow! The desserts are FABULOUS! So good! The ambiance is fun, service excellent, and prices not bad. I have never had better dessert anywhere in Portland!
