Dahlia Bakery is a well-known Tom Douglas creation, which features desserts, breads and lunch items.
Home to the world famous Triple Coconut Cream Pie, Tom Douglas’ Dahlia Bakery offers artisan breads, handmade pastries, and cakes which are baked daily in small batches. Breakfast and lunch options created by the Dahlia chef team, start at breakfast with bacon and organic eggs and finish the day with a quart of Tom's Tasty Tomato soup and a loaf of fresh baked bread.So, the coconut pie is really what this place is famous for. So, I took a trip over to the nearest location one morning to make it my breakfast - along with a coffee, of course.
TOM'S FAMOUS TRIPLE COCONUT CREAM PIE

There was a small line, but nothing too bad. The counter has the pies in whole form, in slice form, or in mini bite-sized form. I got a slice and a cold brew from Stumptown Coffee.
The coconut cream pie is quite good. It's way more fresh and light than I've ever had. It's not an artificial sweet either - it's great.
And, I don't think I've been a huge fan of coconut cream pie. Until now.
Plus, the nice, deep roasty flavor of the coffee just pulled it all together for me.
