(UPDATE 10/17/13: Shocked me to see that The Honey Pot has decided to close for business at all locations. They will be missed.)

(Second Review -- March 2013)
The Honey Pot Bakery opened a brick-and-mortar spot on N Mississippi a few months back, across from the Mississippi Marketplace food pod. On a whim, I stopped by for a small treat. As a note, you can still find Mary's food cart at the Good Food Here pod on SE Belmont.
Along with the usual line of savory pies and sweet pies, you'll find an espresso machine in the building. The pie prep area remains open so you can watch the workers making fresh pies while you order.
All two-bite mini pies are $1.50 each. I went with the Chocolate & Almond pie and the Lemon Meringue pie. Both were good, but I preferred the lemon meringue one due to the refreshing lemon flavor. The Chocolate & Almond pie used dark chocolate had a crumbly inside, much like a firm-chewy cookie.
There's a small breakfast menu consisting of a prosciutto egg cup (gluten-free), Vol au Vent (cream cheese and fresh fruit filling), and assorted "pop tart" flavors. Breakfast is served until 11 a.m.
The Honey Pot's brick-and-mortar spot is open seven days a week.
I'm very happy for Mary. Many food cart owners dream of being able to open their own brick-and-mortar spot. After being open in Portland for over 18 months, she has gained many loyal customers. 8.75/10
