Although I found some of the staff wanting, others were lovely and helpful. THe coffee was good and the pastries a treat. It is conveniently located just off Dupont Circle. No wifi though!

Very pleasant artisan bakery which became a regular breakfast haunt. Top quality breads, pastries and coffee which can be eaten in or taken away. Ideal if staying near Dupont and sets you up for the day.

this bakery is not far from the Dupont Circle metro entrance. It sells a variety of baked goods, including tarts and cupcakes, as well as enormous cookies. You can also buy cookies in smaller sizes in clamshell containers.

We ate breakfast here two mornings in a row. Traditional bakery atmosphere, small but mighty. The ham and cheese croissant, banana nut muffins, yoghurt parfait, etc. all excellent. Two can enjoy a nice, simple breakfast for around ten dollars.

None of the reviewers mentioned that this place has moved to Q St between 19th and 20th! Apparently it moved a few years ago from the Phillips. So why didn't anyone else say anything? In any case, the baked goods are excellent but none of...More

Always super fresh baked goods, with a wide variety. Great for carry out. Salads a real bargain for a quick lunch-tuna, pasta, chicken, orzo, pasta. Don't come for greens...
