Our Flagship Store
Our jewel box of a shop, in the heart of Kerns neighborhood, is the heart and soul of Alma. For our first eight years, we made all of our chocolates in the back of this sweet storefront in NE Portland. We have now made room for an award-winning baking and drinking chocolate program with cafe seating and a full bon bon bar. Come in and build a custom box while you enjoy one of our fresh baked treats and a cup of something delicious for yourself!
Monday - Thursday: 11am-6pm

Chocolate & Espresso Bar
Starting in 2010 Alma began serving espresso from local, small batch coffee roaster Spella Caffe and teas from Smith Teamaker. Combining these superior products with our original drinking chocolates, hot chocolates and pure liquid chocolate drinks makes Alma the best place in town to get a warm, rich, comforting chocolate elixir. We use a 68% "Wild" Bolivian chocolate from Felchlin for all our drinks and make each drink fresh to order, using real melted chocolate, never a syrup.
In 2011, Ruth E Fox began creating choco-centric cookies and cakes with a focus on creating and serving goodies made using top notch, artisanal ingredients with an eye toward capturing the comfort and satisfaction that comes from a home-baked treat.
We now have a revolving roster of buttery cookies, including one of the cities best, the OMG Chocolate Chip (equal parts dough and chocolate!), accompanied by Spella Shortbread, Salted Peanut Butter cookies studded with chocolate, and delicate Almond Cookies capped with dark chocolate ganache. Also appearing in the bakery case are several flourless options, including the highly craved and coveted Chocolate Coconut Macaroon.
On Fridays and Saturdays we feature the unbelievably perfect Mom's Chocolate Cake, a triple stack of the best chocolate cake with the best chocolate frosting we've ever tasted-- it has a tendency to sell out quickly, so get in early for your weekly fix or place a special order ahead of time for your own whole cake.
We carry a variety of gifts in store to pick up with your chocolate including Jewelry, tea kits, mugs, and more.
