So delicious, it’s gross.

What started as simple kitchen sarcasm grew into the idea to create a dessert focused restaurant and bar named, Gross. Catch the irony? So delicious, it’s gross. We truly believe that our guests need and deserve somewhere to go and enjoy the sweeter side of life. You’ll be surprised by our flavor combinations.

Stopped here on a whim after passing by and it was a great choice! The bartender was so sweet and attentive. All of us got wildly different items, and each one was so special and thought out.I loved the “London Smog” cocktail, kind of has me brainstorming how to infuse vodka with earl grey tea just so I can replicate it at home!This may be more of a me thing, but the playlist was also sick. so whoever made that happen on January 13 2024 keep it up!
We had such an incredible experience at Gross! We got to sit at the chef's table in the working kitchen, meet the owner, and try many of the delicious desserts! We will definitely be back!

I didn't think I'd ever find a place to compete with Dessert Bar in Denver, but this place kicks major butt. Dessert Bar, which used to be one of my favorite places to go for dessert, is a lot more of a flashy and high class sort of spectacle, while Gross Confection Bar is more subtle and quality focused. What really truly blew my mind was the sharp aged parmesean cheese on caramel and vanilla ice cream. I have to say that at the time I considered the idea of parmesean cheese on dessert to be ridiculous, but after having this brilliant confection conception I can confidently say that I will be adding aged parmesean to every caramel inclusive desert I can. What a cool flex. The staff was super nice and helpful, and the place had all of the quiet comfort and chill of an underground basement speakeasy. If you're looking for a sweet treat in Portland, hit up Gross, or you will be sorry you missed it. Every other dessert option in Portland is gross by comparison. ;)

First time at Gross - Excellent Coffee, delicious deserts made from scratch. Gorgeous brick rooms with high ceilings. Our server was wonderful!!

We chose Gross Confection Bar for a Sunday night dessert and cocktail. This is a great spot for both! We split the apple crisp creme brulee, which was stellar. The wait staff were friendly and went into great detail on how each dessert was prepared and made. We both enjoyed this unique bar in the Old Port.
