Once you go into this place you don't want to leave. Everything looks so fresh and wonderful. Many choices of excellent baked goods. I had a chocolate croissant that was sooooo good. They have great coffee too. I am considering staying in the city of Portland on my next visit just to be near this bakery. They get really busy but have plenty of help. Will definitely be back!

I know there must be sub-par restaurants, bars, or bakeries in Portland, but I still haven't come across them. The Standard Bakery has wonderful crusty baguettes, flaky croissants, and sticky buns that are sweet and tender. Every time we come to Portland, we stop at Standard. Get there early for the best selection.

Oh yes, the Chocolate Core is moist, rich, chocolatey and the perfect size.

This is the best bakery and not to be missed if you're in Portland. It might be tricky for a first timer to find because it's deeply offset, but look for it alongside the Hilton Garden Inn hotel. It's on Commercial St directly across from the Casco Bay Lines parking indoor parking lot. You might see a line outside the door in the Summer months.

Great freshness, quality ingredients and great variety with daily specials. Love the croissants - almond is yum, scones are wonderful, pecan raisin bread is nice and crusty. Enjoy the cornbread and crostini when they have it. Good coffee too, so a great breakfast spot if that's what you're looking for.

Get there early, 'cause they do sell out. Enjoy!

The cinnamon rolls, coconut macaroons, the berry buckle, the tarts and of course the bread are all fabulous - even the coffee and tea are great. We have a friend who grew up in Germany and cried when she tasted the bread because it was so similar to the bread she ate in Europe. I hesitated to write this review because I don't want them to run out of my favorites.

We bought some great chocolate cookies here. Could have devoured most everything they had - all looked great. Lots of breads and pastries packed into a small space. A few outdoor tables overlooking a parking lot to sit and have coffee.
