Great place for snacks to take on the road

Standard Baking was next to our hotel, so we picked up some pastries and coffee to take on our road trip. Everything was fresh and yummy!

My friend and I decided to go here based on a review that she had read. I was looking for breakfast so I ordered the ham and cheese croissant. She got the almond croissant. It was good, though the ham was a bit dry and I couldn't really taste any cheese. The croissant was flaky with a good flavor. I... More

Delicious pastries and breads. Go early to get the best selection. You can't go wrong with anything you decide to get. We always get free hotel breakfast when we're visiting but we still always grab food from here to supplement!

Fantastic and uniquely different specialty breads everyday, had the marinated olive today, amazing! Each time we've been there it only gets better and tougher to not over order. A must stop. Get some crusty bread, walk a bit for some cheeseand or Iberico ham, grab some wine and you will have a five star snack!

The Standard Baking Company was a bit hard to find but worth the search. It is on Commercial St but pushed back from the road by the parking lot. Look for the Hilton and it is right next door. Oh the almond croissants are to die for! As too are the french baguettes. I was wishing they had an indoor... More

I hit this place at least once a month. Today I grabbed a coffee and a Belgian Sable cookie. I haven't gotten something from here and not thought it wasn't the best version of whatever I bought. Breads, cookies, sweets. Always delicious.
