My 17 month old son and I took my sister, her husband, and two kiddos under the age of four, to Standard Bakery for some doughy goodness. We wanted to try everything but settled for the blueberry scone, morning buns with walnuts, ham and cheese...More

Great place to pick up breakfast and pastry snacks for the day. Wide selection. Small seating area inside was packed at the weekend so we just bought and went to the harbour. Coffee also very good.

I heard this was rated the best bakery in New England, so I had to check it out. I chose 2 cookies, an oatmeal raisin and salty pecan chocolate. Both were very tasty and at $1.75 each, they should have been!

Come early to get in line for this fabulous bakery. Everything is made fresh daily. Beautiful artisan breads & coffee for ones pleasure. Our coffee was piping hot and we thoroughly enjoyed our almond croissants. Highly recommend.

Bread is fresh and delicious. Also got a plum tart which was amazing...not sure if it was almond extract or anise in it but could taste just enough. Been numerous times and always happy
