America's Best Bakeries
Christine Tsai / www.christinetsai.com
Follow your nose through the Old Port and down an alley to a 1920s-era brick warehouse, where Alison Pray and Matt James turn out the finest baked goods in town. Browse the bread selection—country boules, focaccias, anadama, cinnamon raisin, pain de mie, baguettes. Pastries include pain au chocolat, spicy gingerbread slices, and wild Maine blueberry hand pies, made with a cream cheese and butter pastry shell.
Must-Try Item: The Morning Bun, a croissant-like dough rolled up with brown sugar and cinnamon.
