Follow your nose through the Old Port and down an alley to a 1920s-era brick warehouse, where Alison Pray and Matt James have been turning out the finest baked goods in town for two decades this year. Browse the bread selection—country boules, focaccias, fougasse, raisin pecan, organic pain au Levain, 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.
