We have stopped by here twice during our visits to Portland and will make it a regular stop for future visits. The bread is great!! Pastries are great!! Coffee is available. The counter servers are knowledgeable about the products sold. We purchased a loaf of bread to go with pasta we were preparing that evening at a friends cabin. It... More

Great stop first thing in the morning. Good coffee and an excellent assortment of fresh-baked breads, pastries, cookies, tarts, etc. Not to be missed.

We heard about this bakery from a nice vegan competitor when we were out looking for baguette to take to a dinner party, and what a pleasant surprise. Tremendous selection of French pastries and breads (and more), and those we tried were delicious; we went back two more times. The croissants are wonderful (don't miss the almond). Chocolate cookies were... More

Stopped here as it was recommended by a friend. Stocked up on a box full of pastries for long ride home. The assortment of goodies at the counter made it very hard to pick. Everything was delicious. The breads looked gorgeous. The staff friendly and helpful. Wonderful bakery!

If you are only passing by Portland you need to consider stopping by the Standard Baking Co. It sits back of a parking lot by the Hilton Garden Inn by the Port. Been there 4 or 5 times - never disappointed. These folks are serious about breakfast sweet patisserie to old world crusty bread. Limited seating but find a bench,... More

The best bread in town. Crusty, lots of wholes and tons of taste. We tried 3 kinds of bread and several pasties. Every thing was to die for. Prices reflect the quality. We go out of our way to stop by. Fo our bread fix

Baked goods are average. Really not worth the long line. Food is not bad, it's good. It's just not "fantastic". So, don't make a big detour to come here. I tried about 4 different items. They were okay.

Visited the baking company around 7:05AM, since they open at 7:00 and already there was a line to get in ( a good sign ). I went for their wonderful molasses cookies which smell like Christmas and taste just as wonderful! On an impulse I bought an almond croissant ...... hands down it was the best almond croissant I have... More
