    Get up early or stand in a line that stretches out the door. The wait is worth it, though, for these excellent pastries and breads. Grab a loaf of day-old cinnamon raisin for french toast at home.

    Ham & cheese croissant and the financier are personal favorites! The chocolate croissant and sticky buns are also worth a try. Bring a friend and grab a few to share!

    Makes me want to visit Portland again! Amazing baguette!! Ham and cheese croissant = one of the best I ever had! Asiago fougasse = surprisingly delicious. Order all 3, you won't be disappointed.

    The scent walking in is heavenly and then the baked good hit you and you’re on a new plain of consciousness (also get the prosciutto croissant)

    Fresh baked goods in the Old Port. If you are visiting the parking lot is the best deal in town and the most centralized location to walk the port district.

    If you get to Standard early enough you can snag one of the prized ham and cheese croissants. These woven, flakey treasures are filled with asiago and prosciutto and topped with crunchy sesame seeds!

    Delicious baked goods. No butter, jam, or cream cheese readily available, however, which is disappointing if you are eating the pastries immediately. Scones need a lil jam!

    You must get the double chocolate chip cookies, which I think they call the Belgian sables.

    Really buttery almond croissant with lots of filling, which makes it even more amazing. And unhealthy... but it's worth it.
