“Beautiful rustic breads and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Some of the most delicious breads in town, just steps away from the Hilton Garden Inn, where we stayed...and just under Fore Street, Portland's best restaurant. (They bake the bread for the restaurant.) Not a lot of pastries and cakes...more of a rustic bakery. But what they've got is wonderful.

“The Ultimate Bakery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Whenever we are in Portland, we stop in to get some treats, because whatever we get, sweet or savory, it is almost addictive. It's a small spot, and the variety of baked goods ensures that their is something for everyone, and every meal, and in-between meal.

“It's a Great.... Bakery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Standard Baking Co. is ranked on this site as one of the top restaurants in Portland, which is somewhat ironic, as it is not really a restaurant. It's a place to get awesome bread and other baked goods. You are all set as long as you understand that it's a take-out bakery and not a restaurant, per se. They do have coffee and tea to go and a bench inside. It's a great place to get bread or a sweet treat to eat elsewhere.

“One of the best features of Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

If you love quality, taste, and fabulous baked goods there is no better place to go. We love almost everything. Don't forget to try the ham and cheese croissant, rustic apple tart, chocolate cork, galettes, financier, fougasse and the olive loaf. The quality is consistent! Enjoy!!!

“Wow! This is a bakery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

We sampled a few pastries and bought bread. All were excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. The array of artisan baked goods was right from Europe.

This is right next door to the Hilton Garden Inn. It's really worth the trip.
