Award winning solid bakery. Local inspired and traditional loaves and pastries made to the highest standard.

Tried this place after seeing it on TV. I grabbed a pain au chocolat, an almond croissant, and a chocolate chunk pecan cookie. Everything was good but the cookie was spectacular. My only regret was not coming back another day to try more tasty bites.

Standard Baking Co is a must when in Portland ME! The most delicious almond croissant and baguette. I’d put them up against ones I’ve had in France. Great service and the baked goods are out of this world!

Very good cookies, croissants and so on. Didn't try the bread. Got coffee and tea, which were both good. Service is fast. Wish they had a bathroom for customers.

Grabbed some bread and coffee before heading out to Peaks island on the ferry. Wow, the Aroostook baguette was just the right degree of crunch on the outside with a slight tug to the bite, tender moist crumb on the inside. I’d get that again...More

We stopped in looking for some wild blueberry sweets. We got blueberry oat scones. We saw the cookies and "needed" those too. They told us the chocolate chunk with pecans were still warm, so don't wait too long to eat them... We sat outside and...More
