Standard Baking Company
75 Commercial Street
Jane and Michael claim that if they ever think about moving they might head to Portland, Maine. The Standard Baking Company is the lure. Besides its picturesque location facing the wharf, they say it's one of the best bakeries ever. When they're in town they've been known to eat there three times a day, sampling everything offered. No wonder. From the baguettes, boules and brioche to anadama bread, focaccia and rustic whole grain loaves it's all fabulous. And the 'morning bun' takes the sticky bun to new heights. With a cup of their rich coffee it's food for the gods. Jane fills an entire suitcase with breads before heading home.
