This is the best bakery in town, straight up. High quality food, baked goods, bread. The coffee is local and excellent and it just feels good coming here. Often a line. If there something you like go early. Breads are on certain days only. No real inside seating...go outside and sit under the pergola or walk down to the water.... More

Just to see the bakery items on display is delicious! Islanders going back home on the ferry always stop here with their carts to load up, so get there early. Or, get a morning bun and coffee and sit on the patio in the sun, welcoming a day in Portland!

Standard Baking Company is one of America's best bakeries. The baguettes are the best you will ever eat. Come in the morning and get some of the best pastries you have eaten along with a excellent cup of coffee. The counter help is very friendly and helpful. Most of the people who work there, bakers and counter staff, have been... More

Favorite items were the Morning Bun and the Raspberry Almond Galette. The bread looked delicious but not practical to buy when traveling.

This is a great bakery. The bread is fine! The sweets are great. It's been reviewed in Bon appetit for a reason--it's great and reasonably priced.

All other breads are equally robust. The cookies are also superb, especially the oatmeal raisin. Interior seating is limited but the outdoor seating is very pleasant, especially on... More

Sweet off the beaten track of Commercial St. Needed a caffeine fix and sweet. Sat outside under the grape vines. Very relaxing.
