Everybody's got a hungry heart . . .

Welcome to Hungry Heart. We're a warm, friendly, community-minded bakery + coffee shop in the wonderful Montavilla neighborhood. It's nice to meet you!

We started as a cupcake + coffee focused food truck in 2010, but we've come a long way since then! While our cupcakes are still one of the favorite things we offer, our menu of coffees, teas, delicious breakfast & lunch sandwiches (on house-made baguettes, bialys, & croissants!), soups, sweet + savory pastries, cookies, muffins, & French-style macarons has something for everyone. (This includes a limited but delicious selection of vegan + gf items!)

Through our sister company, Heartbreaker, we operated a cozy little cafe with sandwiches, brunch, small-batch ice cream, & lots of pickles, preserves, & fermented goodies from 2017-2019. We closed that cafe space to work on our new project, White Rabbit (coming... this year, we hope!), but are thrilled to feature Heartbreaker Provisions, both as part of our menu & for retail sale: preserves, hot sauces, soups, smoked meats, & more-- things made in our kitchen, with love, for yours. While we wait to open White Rabbit, Heartbreaker is currently focusing on catering! You can find more info at 

Our belief in using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients has been a part of our mission since the beginning, & we apply it to all that we serve. This means that while you'll see a number of our menu items year-round, others will change based on the season, so that whatever you're having-- cupcake or macaron, grab 'n go sandwich or savory danish-- will always be made with fresh, high quality ingredients & lots of care. 

All of our treats & breads are baked fresh daily. Our coffee comes from local companies we admire. We offer both classic crowd-pleasers & inspiring, innovative flavor combinations. We're equally excited to be your morning stop for coffee, make you your favorite breakfast sandwich on a lazy Saturday afternoon, or to bake up some of our cupcakes for your special occasion. 

Last, but certainly not least: great food isn't enough. The heart of our shop is our deep commitment to excellent, authentically friendly customer service. Behind the counter, we're a family, & we believe in treating you like family, too. Thanks for letting us make your day a little sweeter!



"I have searched endlessly up and down the west coast for the best and ultimate coffee shop. Based off the real coffee, an amazing breakfast sandwich, in house made sweet treats and the amazing staff that always remembers my drink and is a joy to talk to no matter how tired you are before coffee, I have found it."
