An absolute staple of Portsmouth cuisine. You simply cannot talk about Portsmouth's food without mentioning Ceres, and with good reason. I grew up eating here, and continue to frequent this bakery with friends and family whenever nearby, or mornings before work. Their "Snitz" is one of the most unique cookies I've ever had, and a flavor you won't get anywhere else. It's nostalgic, wholesome, and flavorful with loads of zest and nuts. Plus, their homemade soups, breads, and pastries are all well worth the (very reasonable) price. Just know, however, they are cash-only (but there is an ATM inside).

Where the locals go in Portsmouth for breakfast. Egg wraps or the raspberry croissants are my personal favorite!

I had a tasty sandwich: turkey, cucumber, provolone, with pesto mayo on garlic parmesan. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. Remember they are cash only.

I loveee Ceres!! Great for breakfast or lunch! Baked goods are always tasty and fresh. Everything is handmade which I love. As a vegetarian this place is a fantastic lunch spot! Love their muesli yogurt bowls as well.

Pamela Kayden-Babish

Paul Tilton

Best baked goods in Portsmouth. Great local crowd and wonderful employees. Real New England feel

Keirsten Littlefield

The baked good are always great, but the folks who work here are consistently rude and unpleasant. I come here frequently and am disappointed with bad service each time.

Brianna Cato

Super cute place! We had a blueberry/mango scone and a blueberry muffin. They were preparing fresh bread in the kitchen while we had our breakfast. Would definitely recommend the scone!

Steve Macomber

Picked up a mix of scones for a meeting in Andover last Wednesday. Everyone raved about them. Thank you Ceres Bakery!

First time going here, always passed by but never stopped. Got an Iced Chai and coffee cake. Definatly made my morning better abd the baked goods are all well portioned to the price. Definatly gunna keep coming back!

Stephanie Woodard

The best bakery in Portsmouth. The best lunch in Portsmouth with 2 lunch specials where one option is vegetarian every day except Sunday when there's a brunch special. Also, a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, and a flatbread special everyday. And, of course, a wide variety of cookies, bars, brownies, tarts, cakes for all the sweet tooths. Oh yeah, and they bake their own beads too, which rotate depending on the day of the week. Ceres bakes bread for local restaurants, such as my favorite breakfast spot Colby's. The final thing to know about Ceres?.. it's not on Ceres street (anymore, it used to be a long time ago heard).

Collin Siverts

Heidi Ohlson

Great Caesar salad! Good service and lots of great food.

Christophe Bernigaud

Great cakes

Sam Larson

Ceres is a cash only bakery. But don't expect to keep coming back just for baked goods. Ceres is one of Portsmouth's best lunch options for fast casual dining. Every day they have two rotating specials for lunch (I grab a mac and cheese whenever they serve it), three baskets of flatbreads, handmade soups, and custom sandwiches. Oh, and did I mention it was a great bakery? Bank of America and Newburyport Savings is nearby if you need an ATM, otherwise get money from the on site ATM near the door. Checks accepted as well.

today's Mediterranean Orzo and flatbread cheese blackbean pizza specials were great

A quaint bakery right off of the Main Street, with an extremely nice staff and great food

David Crimmins

Awesome bakery! With wonderful breakfast sandwiches and lunch options.

Sarah Andrews

Adrienne McCullough

Found this place via Google maps. Okay atmosphere, it got busy as soon as I started ordering, so I took my goodie to go. My one complaint, I really wish that raisins had been listed as an ingredient on the Pumpkin cake I chose. I asked if it was like pumpkin bread and the lady waiting on me said yes, but with frosting. I never put raisins in my bread. Otherwise, not a dense cake being that it is gluten free too.

Manasa Konidena

Great coffee, amazing dessert selection for your post lunch coffee and dessert!

I go here every morning and am forced to spend 10 dollars in order to use my credit card however, I witnessed the staff allowing friends to spend much less and still pay via card. This was very frustrating! Not good business ethics at all. Food is great however!

Great daily specials and variety! My office loves it when we get lunch from here. Penny is the best!

Shawn Jin

Cash only. I asked for french toast. I also really dislike dairy. No where in the description was there indication that they were going to put lots of creme fresh onto the toast. I couldn't eat most of it.

Tyler Wentworth

Cash only, but the breakfast sandwiches are outstanding, bread and cakes are some of the best in the Seacoast.

Awesome breakfast bowl, delicious blueberry tart. If they ever have the strawberry chocolate scones... buy. them. all. YUM!

James Curley

Breakfast served until 1030, lunch sandwiches served at 11. Good atmosphere

matt lynn

Bakeries should never get lower than 5 stars, unless they are careless. These people love what they do.

Kenneth Warner

This place is a great breakfast or lunch stop. The sweets are outstanding and the only thing they lack is a great coffee (no espresso so 4 stars not 5). The interior has a cool vibe and the feeling of a little French Bistro in a small city. Great people behind the counter as well. Highly recommend.

I love the place, they have really attractive decoration and desserts. It's obvious that the people that work here are very passionate about what they do because you can see it in how the coffee and pastries are being made. This is a place that's dear to my heart in Portsmouth. Looking forward to tasting their coffee again in the future.

Julio Vaca

The desserts we had were good, not great. And they only took cash, which was inconvenient and surprising since so many people only carry cards.

Always lovely to eat lunch here and enjoy a bustling part of local Portsmouth. Easily one of my favorite places to snag food from. Reminder though; Cash Only.

Benjamin Walker

A fun place with quality food. People here seem to love their work in the way only the gritty passionate do. 5 bucks gets you a honking breakfast wrap with lots of veggies that kept me full most of the day. Add a solid, no-frills choice of five coffees (two organic) at the self service counter, and you've got yourself a morning. Did I mention a bakery case that will make you slap your grandma? CASH ONLY!
