Fresh and delicious

Stopped by for a chocolate chip and molasses cookie, fabulous! Line out the door, wonderful smell wafting outside, right outside the door of our hotel.

The breads looked equally delicious and the whole vibe of the shop is inviting. Go early for the best selection, but stop in late if that's when you're in the vicinity - whatever is left will still be good!

Great place for cookies, muffins, breakfast treats & breads. All baked fresh on premise. They open early in the morning, great place to stop while out on a walk.

Great bread for sure, especially the pumpernickel raisin bread but the most amazing sweet treat is the cinnamon swirl breakfast buns with the pecans.

This bakery does a brisk business in the morning with fresh break and baked goods. They do not sell whole pies or cakes, but individual items. We recommend the ginger cakes with lemon sauce and the ginger/molasses cookies.

Standard Baking is one of my favorite stops in ALL of my travels. Wonderful baked goods, the fruit buckle is my single favorite thing to eat. They open at 7 am, as the day goes on they start to run out of things, the earlier you can visit the better your selection. Enjoy the treat.

Nice little selection of breads and pastries. Coffee was good. There are a few small tables outside that we sat at. The tarts looked and tasted good.
