Ken's Artisan in NW Portland is reputed as the go-to place for what many consider to be the best bread in Portland. The other Ken's, across the river, is a pizza restaurant and equally stellar. For the westsiders who want to stay in their neighborhood, Ken's Artisan Bakery does pizza every Monday night, and it rocks. Actually, you can't go wrong with anything they bake or make. Largely due to the bread, along with fresh, seasonal ingredients, any sandwich listed on the daily changing blackboard menu is going to be excellent.
