Just in for a small baguette and their fabulous morning sticky buns. For a mid-morning coffee, the buns can't be beat.

My wife and I stopped for breakfast before our tour started. They were busy the morning we were there but the service was still fast. Not especially friendly but they were working hard. We had cranberry and blueberry scones and I had an oatmeal raisin cookie. The coffee was good and hot. This is a bakery so they did not... More

It's what the name says but there is nothing standard about it. All pastries and breads are superb. We loved it.

Great baked goods, prone to humanity gridlock in summer and especially cruise ship season. Pricey, muddled service.

I am a bread aficionado, and this is some of the best I've ever had. I happened upon this place by chance as I was heading home after a weekend in town, and I will definitely be coming back. I brought some baguettes and a roasted garlic loaf home for dinner along with 2 loaves of cinnamon bread. The garlic... More

Happened upon this little gem of a bakery after a disappointing meal at the Porthole. Wished I'd just come here 1st! Wonderful coffee and the best cup of tea I've had out in ages. Wonderful selection of breads, scones and cookies. Had a delicious molasses spice cookie. Thank God this place is not too close to home or I'd be... More

Great little bakery that does everything with excellence. They offer sweet and savory pastries along w/ freshly baked breads that are absolutely delicious. We tried a cinnamon roll, cheese Danish, peach galette, croissant, and a basic roll. They have a nice rotation of items daily and this makes a great spot for a light breakfast. No seating indoors and their... More

If you love carbs, this is the place for you- everything we had was great- beyond par! Chocolate rye cookie (a deep, complex chocolate/ brownie with a touch of fudge in convinient cookie form) The lemon blueberry tart was not too sweet with a solid short crust pastry. And the olive bread - man it had olives all throughout the... More

Be prepared to wait in line with tourists and locals to sample the range of great products at Standard Baking. Next to the Hilton Garden Inn at the Portland Harbor, Standard Baking offers a range of bread, pastries (mainly laminates such as croissants), cookies, and granola. My favorite over two mornings of sampling products was the marinated olive roll -... More
