Opposite Portland’s ferry terminal in a historic brick warehouse, Alison Pray and Matt James make the best baked goods around, and there’s almost always a line for their famous breads—country boules, focaccias, anadama, cinnamon raisin, pain de mie, baguettes. There’s also a wonderful selection of smaller items that overflow from patisserie-style baskets and fill tiers of heavy porcelain plates. Choose from spicy gingerbread by the slice, sticky buns, oatmeal-cranberry cookies, cheddar cream biscuits, and chewy sesame fougasse—all ideal for nibbling during a stroll around the cobbled streets of the Old Port. The rich, aromatic coffee is excellent, too.
