Sorbetto, Pie, and More

Pretend you're vacationing in Florence with a scoop of Pinolo's peach sorbetto, made with local Sauvie Island peaches. (Pinolo Gelato)
Sweet, juicy, and fragrant, ripe summer peaches are the pinnacle of the season's fresh produce, and August also happens to be National Peach Month, so you still have about a week left to get in some prime peach-eating under the wire. Though you may not be able to get millions of them (cue the Presidents of the United States of America), we've hand-picked this list of restaurants, bakeries, and other spots in Portland where you can consume as much of the succulent stone fruit as possible in a wide variety of forms, including pizza, sorbetto, pie, and cupcakes, plus places where you can buy them to eat on their own (preferably while standing over a sink). For more inspiration, check out our food and drink guide.
