“Amazing fresh bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

This is a bakery not a restaurant. I stayed next door and kept smelling something wonderful and decided to check it out. I brought home scones and olive bread. I wish I got more. I am somewhat of an olive bread connoisseur and the bread was amazing!!! The scones were also some of the best I ever had. A must go to when in Portland.

“Y U M !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

From the smell of the baking bread as you walk in the door, this place is heavenly. Try the marinated olive loaf or the adamama bread or the cookies or the rolls or the baguette or the croissants.
Take some home! This is located at the far end of Commercial street before the Eastern Promenade. A little difficult to find, but worth the journey!

“Great Bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Set back from the road, next tithe Hilton Garden Inn, this small bakery had a smaller, but outstanding selection of baked goods. There is a daily rotation of bread selections. Gingerbread was great, too.

“Coffee and Breakfast Pastries Non-Pareil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Tucked right beside/behind the Hilton Garden Inn on Commercial Street, you will find a most wonderful morning coffee, pastries, breads place I have ever experienced. Easy to access from route 295, a stop over here at any time of day will refresh and delight. Favorites of my family include the croissants (almond and plain), fruit buckle, boule loaves, miche bread, galette, cookies and brownies. Every trip to Maine and back includes a promise to enhance the day with a Standard Bakery pit stop. An added bonus is a staff that has "kind and pleasant" as job qualifiers. We discovered at our last stop-over that their neighborly Garden Inn and they have an agreement to allow customers use of their bathroom facilities.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Came upon this bakery while looking for a quick stop before getting on the road. We picked up some pastries but the breads looked fantastic. We had croissants, scones, muffins, brownies and cookies. They were all so delicious , wish I could go back for more.
