Morning buns with caramelized walnuts = unbelievably delicious.

I enjoy that it is a pick-up bakery only, meaning you can't roll in and set up shop for 9 hours while drinking one cup of coffee. It also means that you can always grab a parking spot before running in for challah bread and those gorgeous morning sticky buns with walnuts.

And the clerks are always lovely and helpful.

Hidden at the rear of a parking lot off of commercial st, this is a serious bakery in the old world mode. Excellent breads and rolls, sweet rolls and cookies to have with t coffe. This is a bakery, not a coffee cafe.
In a city known n for its food, this is the best bakery

I go to Standard Baking every time I am in town. I use to take it for granted when I lived in Maine and now that I am gone I miss it so much. The fresh baked goods are second to none

Been going here for years on every visit to Portland and it never disappoints. Cookies, especially ginger and the oatmeal are the best. Breads freeze well to take home extra and the desserts are not too sweet but perfect. Highly recommend their cookbook with great recipes for an average level Home baker.
