Visit Portland: Papa Haydn

Do you have a sweet tooth?  I do.  A whole mouth of them.  And that is why when I came to Papa Haydn for lunch, I went light on lunch (French onion soup) and heavy on the desserts.  The description of the desserts do not do those beauties justice so I suggest you go and take a look at the amazing desserts housed in the showcases before you make your selection.  
I was visiting Portland so I knew I wouldn’t be back anytime soon so we ordered 3 desserts (you know, because we are practical):   the Boccone Dolce - French meringues drizzled with semi-sweet chocolate, layered with whipped cream and seasonal fruit; the Bourbon Ball - dense chocolate cakes soaked in bourbon and glazed with dark chocolate ganache; and the Lemon Chiffon Cake - four layers of light and fluffy lemon cake filled with lemon curd crème fraîche, iced with lemon cream cheese frosting.  
The desserts were amazing.  My favorite was the lemon chiffon cake while my friend favored the French meringues.  The ambience of this chic, upscale restaurant was very nice and the service was excellent.  Definitely recommend getting your sweet fix here.
