Kudos to this company that's also a current semifinalist for the James Beard Outstanding Baker Award. We're talking about Portland’s best known bakery, the Standard Baking Co., of course. It's one of the top 21 best bakeries in America, according to the food and drink website Thrillist. Alison Pray and her husband, Matt James opened the bakery in 1995. It's located right across from Portland’s harbor.

Standard Baking Co. is known for everything from their delicious baked breads and buns to their scones, muffins and cookies.
