Atlantic Baking Co. in Rockland, Maine, was established in December of 2002. Fondly known as ABC, Atlantic Baking Co. has been producing artisan breads and pastries from scratch ever since. Our knowledgeable and friendly crew are eager to help you select the best breakfast or lunch item for you, or the perfect bread for your dinner party.
We use only the finest ingredients available, such as unbleached, unbromated flours and use organic ingredients wherever possible. We never use preservatives. Our breads are hand shaped with care in the wee hours of the morning by a talented group of bread bakers. Choose between a classic Parisian baguette, seeded country batard, Italian ciabatta (perfect for dipping in your favorite olive oil or covered in cheese), sourdough, cheese bread, organic whole wheat or our raisin walnut to name a few.
We use premium chocolates in our pastries and a high butterfat content butter, making our croissants more flaky, tasty and delicious. We offer classic plain, chocolate, almond, ham and cheese croissants and our bear claw (chocolate and almond!). Our bacon, cheddar, scallion scones are quite popular, as well as the provolone and herb scone – and for fruit lovers, we have a daily fruit scone.
Every day we sell sandwiches made on our fresh bread, two soups and a selection of salads. All are ready to go or can be enjoyed at one of our tables inside or at our bistro tables outside in summer. Our counter facing Main Street is the perfect place to people watch or just to relax with a cup of our delicious hot or iced coffee. Our current listing of sandwiches and salads is here:
Come in and enjoy Maine’s wonderful sunny days with the smell of the sea at your back.
