COVID-19 UPDATE - 2/01/2022

We have changed our hours and some of our guidelines in order to prioritize the safety of our employees and our customers.

  • Product options are currently limited to tortes, cake slices, cupcakes, cookies, caramels, and miscellaneous pastries. We are currently taking limited custom cake orders as long as we have enough notice.
  • You may pick a torte from our menu and request writing (free), a standard floral ($15.00), or a photo print out ($15.00).
  • You must wear a mask when picking up your order, even those who have already been vaccinated. All preorders must be paid for over the phone. 
  • We highly suggest you call ahead before coming, although you can also walk up to our window and order on site.

These guidelines are subject to change in compliance with the CDC, our state’s guidelines, and what we see fit as a business.

Our History

JaCiva’s Bakery was founded by husband-and-wife duo Jack and Iva Elmer on December 6th, 1986, who cleverly named their bakery by combining their names. Jack and Iva perfected their chocolates and desserts by unifying their individual skills and talents. Chef Jack, with his formal Swiss pastry education and passion for baking, created each recipe with love and care. Iva, with her innovative creativity and love for her community, helped to shape JaCiva’s Bakery into a unique part of Portland’s history where every customer feels at home.
