A "real bakery" with all types of baked goods - primarily breads - that will be worth the trip and calories. Scones change seasonally and are good but the cookies, especially just out of oven, are the top. Focaccia - esp rosemary - is perfect for any meal. Secret for chocolate lovers - chocolate cork - serve with ice cream... More

I have said this several times, " hands down, the best almond croissant I have ever eaten!!" Oh, and the molasses cookies smell like Christmas, and taste just as wonderful. My only caution is to go early. They open at 7:00 AM ,and when I arrived at 7:05 AM there was already a line to get your goodies. Although it... More

Instead of a huge daily selection of mediocre breads and baked goods, they have fewer, but all excellent. Always fresh, always friendly, always delicious!

The aroma upon entering the store was amazing! Nothing smells better than fresh backed bread. We opted for chocolate chunk rye cookies and coffee. Delicious!

A bit difficult to find, set back from the street. Selections are good and are quite reasonably priced. Staff very helpful in making selections.

I live 12 min.away from Standard Baking. It;s too close for this pre-diabetic who needs to curb my enthusiasm for Standard's extraordinary offerings. For starters, they have the finest Rosemary and olive oil focaccio that I have ever tasted-even in Europe! They also sell their goods at some local small stores so often a trip into the city is not... More

Indeed all visitors, please find this bakery and come inside to smell, then buy something. You can also find their baked products all over town at other shops and restaurants. There is nothing like the smell of fresh bread and the warm soft sensual dough.

Thank CS1Portland
