This bakery is fabulous. We stopped in on a snowy morning for a couple almond croissants and coffee and also wound up with a beautiful loaf of bread, some madeleines, and some adorable lobster shaped sugar cookies.

Best bread in Maine. Scones, croutons, macaroons, and frankly everything baked there are fantastic. Need I say more?

I've been hearing about Standard Baking Company since I arrived in Portland last April. Finally went to the shop, though I have tasted a few things that were from SBC but in other establishments. I bought an assortment of things and the ones I've eaten so far, the gingerbread and a croissant were just yummy.

Clearly the very best bakery in Portland. Great Scones and Croissants...you won't want to leave. Service is quick, prices are very reasonable. Easy in and out with plenty of parking..but it does help to get their early.

My wife and I will make the 85 mile one-way drive to the Standard Baking Co. simply because it is the best bakery in New England. There isn't a single item of theirs we've had over the years that we did not enjoy thoroughly. Although their various sweets are delightful, we particularly enjoy their breads. They are simply outstanding. If... More
