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.
