The Portsmouth Baking Company will always hold a special place in my heart and stomach. The place was drop dead gorgeous, the food was excellent – and the cupcakes delicious. Thanks to Harvey & Co. for bringing this little spot to Portsmouth along with all its treats. You will be missed. I’m looking forward to hearing about the new venture that makes its way into the former PBC home.
One of the many great things about Portsmouth is the abundance of delicious options to eat & drink. This spring/summer, Congress Street welcomed a new establishment in the Worth Block – The Portsmouth Baking Company. It took me a while to finally make it inside, but once I did – I instantly knew this place was something special. The design inside is simply beautiful. I had peeked inside a couple times this past week, and was surprised to see a flat screen TV with a live feed to the bakery visible from the street. It’s a neat feature that allows people to see what’s going on in the kitchen as the staff makes the delicious bread.
The massive wooden table at center in the shot above is a sight to behold. The seating along the wall towards the front is comfy with a unique patterned fabric. Every little detail has been carefully thought through. To top it all off, there is an overhead train that brings fresh bread samples from the kitchen in the back to the massive cupboard in the front, so that patrons can try the multitude of offerings. The fact that their cupcakes are delicious and ridiculously tempting solidifies this as a must visit location, so head on over and see for yourself.
