Been here many times. Breads have degraded a bit in last year — too many large air pockets compared to a few years ago. Sometimes the loaves for sale here seem to be more air than bread. Better bread lands upstairs at Fore Street Restaurant....More

Standard Bakery’s bread is simply hard to beat. Many of Portland’s amazing restaurants serve Standard ‘a bread, with its hard, crunchy crust and tasty , soft center. Perfect with a little olive oil.

This is a taste of Paris in Portland! I have tried several kinds of croissants, cookies, breads, tarts, and rolls, and everything is fantastic!

The French style pastry here is as good as it gets. Staff is knowledgeable and welcoming. Just wish there was a place to sit other than outside on the bench fending off the pigeons.

Altho I only visited once, the bakery is amazing and all freshly made and the coffee too, reason why I visited only once is because the lines keep getting longer and longer, so many people waiting outside the door, shows just how popular it is

Everything is happy goodness, wonderful staff, yummy treats, the BEST English muffins ever, great coffee and comforting aroma. I've been a patron for years, having lived in Portland a long time ago, and I never go to town without stopping at Standard Baking.

Standard Bakery is the very BEST! Everything is fresh and delectable. Sometimes you can get lucky and even order a warm croissant, morning bun or a cookie. That is a real treat! Their coffee is very good too. You have to go yourself to experience...More

I have yet to taste one thing that is not fabulous at this bakery. Almond croissants best I’ve had. Scones traditional, buttery and crunchy.

A fantastic bakery near the old port (commercial street). Great selection of bread and pastries. Unbelievable rosemary sourdough, wonderful Asiago cheese bread, a wonderful olive loaf.... We ate all in one setting!

We are not a gluten-free bakery so anything we make will contact flour. That being said, we make a dense Northern European bread that we call Vollkornbrot that's available on Mondays in the summer. It's a self-leavening... More
