Patisserie Poupon: what do users think?


Vikram Seshadri: Came across this nice little bakery on the way to Dumbarton Oaks. They have amazing cakes, croissants and pies. The fruit cheesecake was the best one ever.

Karla Guillen: The food was good! The bread was a little harder than what I expected but still edible. The desert was perfect!! They don't have handicap entrance but they have a little parking area in the back which I'm not sure if you can really park there but I did anyways and didn't get a ticket or complain.

Al Edmondson: Really good food. Pleasant and cozy, edged in a Georgetown space, with a nice view of Wisconsin Ave. movements on the street in the front window seating. Nice and comfy patio to sit outside. Plenty of yummy desserts, pastries and some bomb Ice Tea lemonade. Service was absolutely polite and welcoming. Nothing negative to say about this lunch outing. Can't wait to return. I just simply enjoyed it...

Dagmar: The customer service was great. They were friendly, kind and packed my cakes up with care. Cakes were delicious and not overly sweet. I went for two cakes and ended up leaving with four (my own choice) lol I bought extra to share. Coffee was good too a medium to light blend.

Sarah Millet: Had some time to kill and stopped here for some pastries and coffee ! Everything was super tasty and authentic ! The coffee was on point and to top it off, they have the cutest patio.

Matthew Henry: Amazing experience. Incredible French food, don't miss it.

Laura Delgado: I've been satisfied with everything that my family has tried here including the almond croissants, ham & cheese croissants and brie sandwiches. The relaxing atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating is also a plus.

Sarah Diligenti: The go-to place for Fraisiers cakes and for their scrumptious Hazelnut Yule Log at Christmas. I also love their Americano, which I reserve as a guilty pleasure almost once a month on Sundays, together with their almond croissant. My only regret is that the back patio is too small and shady and sitting outside in the front on the curb kills the joy of sipping an excellent coffee: noise and exhaust fumes dampen the experience.

Mark P: Great little bakery that my family and fiance explored when in georgetown. We got coffee from the espresso bar in the back, which were delicious. We got a spinach / cheese savory pastry, a pain au chocolat, and this really cool raspberry mousse/cake thing. All of it was fantastic. Service was really nice and the line moved fast. Bathrooms in the back.

Dania Ramirez: We stopped here for lunch. The coffee was really good and the fruit tarts just delightful. We also ordered a quiche and sandwiches. Everyone was super happy with their orders. I would definitely come back! Highly recommend!

Un je ne sais Quoi...: what do users think?


Muniba Khan: Absolutely love it! Came here for a dessert-y breakfast because of a mutual friend's recommendation. Everything that we tried was high quality and delicious, and the prices were honestly pretty reasonable. We got the apple tart, cherry blossom cream puff, and flan and I was impressed with everything. I would say my favorite was probably the cream puff or the apple tart! They also have pretty good coffee, I got a cappuccino and I was satisfied. The place was really crowded and the line was out the door, so I would recommend coming as early as you can.

arun varughese: Wow. One of the best bakeries I have been to at a medium price range. They have really nice pastries which are lite and NOT loaded with sugar like many of the other bakeries. Pear tart - My favorite item from the place. It had a lite pear flavor with soft and yummy crust. Croquettes- really good and a steal for the price. Pistachio- they have really good pistachio cream so try any of their pistachio based pastries if available. Hot chocolate- The hot chocolate was good but nothing unique. Optional try. I am not sure if it’s authentic French as I don’t have a reference. But their pastries felt really high quality and you won’t have a sugar rush after having them.

Saminda Wijegunawardena: This first visit was generally underwhelming. Their much lauded meringue failed to impress. I had the Memorable with coffee chocolate ganache, coffee whipped cream, milk chocolate shavings. It was surprisingly dry and not as cloud like fluffy as envisioned. The Memorable was quite forgettable. The flavor leaned heavily on the sugar, a bit too much for my taste. The chocolate eclair in contrast was on the spot. Creamy chocolate filling with a perfectly moist dough in the interior and a crisp shell layered with a generous stripe of chocolate icing. I'm sure there are some other great things but when the eclair trumps your flagship item, it can only garner 3 stars.

Iris Tan: I LOVE everything here! I was visiting DC and My friend brought me here as this is her fav place for French pastries! We ordered 4 kinds and I loved them all! Especially the cream … they are not too sweet and creamy … also I did a quick sketch here to capture some cute moments;)

Christina Z: My group ordered the almond, pistachio and coffee croissants. The fillings were tasty, but there was no beautiful flaky interior texture. It seems as if they cook their croissants at too high of a temperature so the outside cooks too fast and the inside does not fully cook. I've had better croissants elsewhere.

Da-Wang Wu: One of the best bakeries in DMV! They only sell croissant and breads before 11am and start selling desserts after 11am. The chocolate tarts and lemon tarts are both very delicious. Eclair and millefeuille are not bad but slightly too sweet for me, but my partner likes it. The chocolate brioche-like small bread was my favorite. Highly recommend!

Piper Strzelecki: Tragically, I am allergic to gluten, so I often don’t expect much from pastry shops. However, the staff were very helpful and I was able to pick from 2 options. I had the raspberry financier and it was easily the BEST gluten free bakery item I have ever had!!! Thank you for this 😁

Vi Rodriguez: This place is worth the visit! We almost skipped this place because finding parking sucked! I'm glad we parked and walked a block to check this place out. The pastries not only look good but they were delicious!!! We got apple and strawberry fritters and a butter croissant. In additional we got two vanilla lattes one with oat milk. It was a bummer they couldn't do cool designs in our lattes but man those lattes were DELICIOUS! There is seating inside and outside. Service is very fast and the staff were extremely nice and knowledgeable. The require masks to enter the establishment.

Ashleah Younker: My friends and I stopped by on a whim and were very pleased by our decision! I got an eclair that I ate directly after purchasing that was So Good! I also got a chocolate twist and a raisin roll to go to share with my partner for breakfast the following morning. Both were delicious, but I preferred the raisin roll slightly. One of my friends ordered a hot latte, and it smelled divine.

Patricia Alejandro: Excellent apple turnover, warmed up and buttery, crispy pastry. The marveilleux was also excellent, multilayered with chocolate mousse, crunchy meringue and chocolate shards. Best if its kind I’ve had yet.

Nino's Bakery: what do users think?


YooRi Kim: The BEST croissant EVER!!! As much I love croissant, I am very picky about texture and flavor. Tried mamy famous croissant bakeries in NYC, Boston, and other cities but this place is the top notch! Buttery but not soggy rather a bit crunch. And those layers… please try!!👍🏼 Staffs are very friendly too💗
Response: Thank you so much!

Sophie Hækkerup: Best croissants I’ve ever tasted. Simply just great. We stayed in DC for 3 days and ate Nino’s croissants for breakfast every morning, since they were so addictive. The coffee is the only thing that was just “fine” - everything else is great.

Sahar Bayounis: This place has one of the BEST chocolate croissants I’ve ever tasted. It’s so flaky and immaculate. ✨🥐 Before I got in, I checked google maps reviews, and majority of them was about how delicious the chocolate croissant was. So I had to try it! I also got a small cappuccino with skimmed milk. My total was close to $9. I appreciated how clean and spacious the restroom was! Usually coffeeshop restrooms aren’t that clean. I just wish the place was a little bigger to accommodate more customers. Because I waited a bit for one customer to leave so that I can use their table and work on my computer. But all in all, great atmosphere. 👍🏼 Shout out to Blaine & Sarah for being awesome baristas! Thank you for welcoming me with a great smile in the morning! ♥️♥️

Kellan Howell: These croissants are truly life changing. I work just around the corner and find myself coming almost every morning for breakfast. The everything croissant is to die for. I love that they always have some new and interesting flavors to try. The pastries are perfectly flaky and crunchy on the outside and soft and buttery on the inside with incredible fillings. It's just around the corner from another French pastry shop and Nino's just blows the competition away. My only criticism is that the coffee isn't great but I can be picky about coffee.
Response: Thank you!

Tommy Sommer: I just had a bite of the chocolate croissant and it changed my life. My cappuccino was very good too. After weeks wanting to try this place, I finally stopped by and I’m having a perfectly pleasant experience. Updated with photo of a beautiful chocolate croissant. This place is so consistently good. I love it.
Response: Thanks for visiting!

go potyr: Tried their Yuzu crossiant and Seasame crossiant, enjoyed every bite of them! Seasame Croissant was full of flavour except that it was a bit oily, after all it was a good place for 🥐 in DC.

Maya Patel: We had a delicious breakfast at Nino’s this morning ☕️ I love all the photos of the owner’s dog - Nino, in various parts of Italy that are hung on the walls and that the owner speaks Italian! Both the baristas at the cafe were really friendly and you could tell that it’s a beloved local spot! Their pain au chocolat is amazing – really buttery, flakey, light & delicious! Good coffee too, although next time I need to ask for a single shot cappuccino (it’s strong!) Thank you 💕
Response: Thanks for visiting us!

ays al: I love pistachios and I try every pistachio croissant I can find whichever city/country I visit. Never eaten a better pistachio croissant in my life. Simply the best for my taste. Flaky, light, tasty. Their espresso shots are good but I am yet to encounter a good latte/ cappuccino experience in the DC area. Steamed milk should look velvety even if you leave it untouched for several minutes. It should never form mini bubbles, not even one, if it is done correctly.

Brianna Blais: What a great place to satisfy a pastry desire! Enjoyed a scone, croissants, and beverages. The chocolate croissant could have used more evenly distributed chocolate, but Nino's still gets 5 stars because these were so flaky and delicious!
Response: Thank you!

Italia Capone: After reading reviews, I had to try Nino's for myself. Not a big selection of pastries at this time but they did have about 6 or so varieties of croissants. Decided to try the chocolate, it was very airy and flaky. It could've used a bit more chocolate however. Also tried the macarons, and they were beautifully delicious.

Luke: I love this place. Excellent pastries, cakes, coffee, bread, and more. Seriously, DC is lucky to have this place. Staff are really nice and it's a comfy space to sit and relax. There's nice sunshine in the early morning at the sidewalk tables and window. Check it out!

Molly Cooper: I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! We both got an americano (one hot, one iced) with oat milk. It was only around $8 which for DC I was expecting way more. The people working were so nice! I also grabbed sugar to put in it but it didn’t need it at all! This is the best coffee I’ve had in ages! It made me so happy :) thanks guys!!

Trip Taker: This is a gem of a place! We went there 3 mornings in a row! Their sausage breakfast croissant is top notch. Cheese Danish is solid and their desserts are good quality. We tried what we thought was lemon meringue pie...turns out it was a passion fruit meringue. Not what we were expecting but good nonetheless. The customer service is good...right after walking in the door someone greets you and asks if they can help. Seems like a basic concept but post-covid it seems like it's not so basic with the new help or lack of help. Firehook is a must-try!

P. B.: Possibly the nicest coffee and goodies I have tasted in Washington.Excellent service, with friendly staff.Try the Almond Biscotti as treat for home.

Sonia Chlup: What a lovely bakery. Friendly staff, well priced pastries. Will be back before leaving Washington.

Mary P: Ordered two cakes here. Vanilla strawberry was very good 4/5 stars. The chocolate mouse cake- the mouse was delicious, but the cake was dry and had no flavor! Everyone agreed mouse was the only good part about that cake. Didn’t taste like chocolate at all 2/5. Easy ordering and pickup. They had no bag for two large cake boxes so bring your own. Also, one box had frosting on the bottom so we had to ask to be re-boxed so we wouldn’t get on our clothes. Would try again but not order the chocolate mouse cake.

Hanna Foreman: The coffee and pastries here are at great prices for the area. Highly recommend the lattes and cappuccinos here. The cookies are to die for and highly recommend the ginger cookies. Croissants here could be a little warmer, but the savory ones are generous with the cheese. The staff is always super friendly.

Manasi Kabadi: Love this bakery. They have so much variety. Their breads are really good too.

Maureen “SooHyunFan”: I got the lemon poppy pound cake because one of the workers said it's tasty. However, it's very dry and the texture is like that of sand! What a waste of money! Maybe some of their baked goods are good but the pound cakes are not.

Michael C: The cakes aren’t very good. Mine was soggy and tasteless

Fresh Baguette: what do users think?


Anna Maroni: The best baguette I’ve had outside of France. I walk in the shop and the smells make me feel as if I’ve been transported back to a bakery in Europe. The pastries are amazing. With half of my family being French and Belgian, I have high expectations of bread and pastries! Fresh Baguette does not disappoint. I’ve also purchased some tea imported from France which is now one of my favorite teas. Love their variety of imported food products.
Response: Anna, We're delighted to hear about your most recent experience at Fresh Baguette! Thank you for sharing.

Vladimir Rodin: Great pastries and sandwiches, good variety of hard to find french beverages and syrups, westm and welcoming staff, amazingly fast fulfilling of online pickup orders.
Response: Good morning Vladimir, We appreciate the 5-star review. Although the photos you shared are outdated and we no longer carry the items. We'd love if you shared current photos the next time you visit us. See you soon. Merci!

yvette vandenberg: Wonderful customer service and great treats. Pistachio eclair, strawberry mousse tart, cro-gel sandwiches, and baguette sandwich were amazing. You can sit down outside and enjoy your goodies.
Response: Yvette, Thank you for your recent visit to Fresh Baguette. We are happy you enjoyed the pastries and sandwiches. Don't miss out on our buttery and flaky croissants on your next visit!

Silvia Lacy: I love this place their cakes and desserts are the Best!!! I’m always happy with their croissants and breakfast sandwiches :)
Response: Silvia, Thank you for sharing the delicious photos! Looks like it was a great celebration.

theniceone06: This has been my third visit to the Rockville location and my experience has always been pleasurable. The staff is very friendly (and many of them speak French, which only adds to the experience), the pastries and savory meals are awesome and fresh. But the coffee... EXCEPTIONAL! My only wish is that they have more macarons.

J Foodgeek: I tried sesame baguette cinnamon roll, and almond croissant. Nice store and products.
Response: Hello J Foodgeek, We're happy you were satisfied with your recent visit! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review.

Alexander O'Neill: Unassuming French bakery with high quality and fresh selection of goodies. Staff are always super friendly and get our orders together quickly.
Response: Thank you Alexander for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate and it's always a big encouragement for our team at Fresh Baguette. Starting tomorrow we offer a 25% discount on all the croissant family of products and until Sunday July 18th. A way to say thank you for our loyal customers and encourage new guests to discover Fresh Baguette. We hope to see you again.

Cheryl Daniels: Ordered online, walked in, picked up order and was back out quickly. The pastries are wonderful, the baguettes fresh and flavorful. Quickly becoming one of my favorites spots in Alexandria.
Response: Cheryl, Thank you for stopping by our Old Town location. We're happy to be a part of the community!

Sara Pretl: We love this place and these people! Perfect example for why?: I placed my order this afternoon, not knowing it was right at the same time they were running out of Crog'els... I got a phone call right away, letting me know and asking how they can accommodate me best!?! Perfect service, every time, with simple fresh yummy made to order food? Yes please!
Response: Sara, We appreciate you taking the time to write about your experience at Fresh Baguette.

Kira Yeary: Have loved everything so far!! 😍 have tried chocolate croissant, ham & cheese croissant, Nutella croissant, and the hazelnut eclair. My favorite has been the pesto breakfast croissant sandwich, it.is.amazing.

Pluma by Bluebird Bakery: what do users think?


Vijay Joshi: I absolutely love Pluma. I steadily made my way through the menu after living nearby for a year. Their baked goods are fantastic (pistachio croissant and morning bun especially), but I really adore Pluma for their breakfast/lunch food. Having tried mainstays (Croque madame, avo toast, breakfast sammy's, etc.) and seasonal specialties (ramp toast, fried chicken sandwich), I was consistently enamored with the meals. Their breakfast sammy #2 goes craaaazy with the double fennel sausage, the Croque madame was the best I've ever had, and the fried chicken sandwich blew me away given the sheer proportions, herbal flavor explosions, and immaculate bread. Also, definitely try the hot sauces they keep by the utensils. Since they're a bakery, of course, their bread is top-notch, but they also source the rest of their ingredients exceptionally. While not cheap, Pluma always felt like a great use of money, unlike Union Market around the corner where everything feels overpriced. A couple of notes: they only serve food-to-go, and since the kitchen is not their main purpose, hot food can take a little while. Be patient, and good things will come.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Vijay. This is why we do what we do, and we love to hear that the love and dedication that we put into our bakery is so well received. We hope to have you as a customer for many more years to come!

Hannah Hunt: Excellent cardamom morning bun and overall experience. There is a good variety of pastries available to order. This was my first time but I definitely plan to come back. The inside was also beautiful, really nice atmosphere.
Response: Thank you so much! We are so glad you had an enjoyable experience and hope to see you back soon.

Stephanie Carter: Very charming coffee shop. Cute atmosphere, but the coffee could have been hotter, and the quiche I had was just okay (though I think the flavor combo just didn't suit me). Savory scones were great!
Response: Thank you! We hope to see back again soon to try more of our pastries and discover which ones you like best. Insider tip: ask for your coffee extra hot 😉

Shane Seeman: Good slice of quiche and good mocha.Service was slow and inaccurate. Gave my slice to someone who ordered at least five minutes after me, and overheard they gave away someone else's whole pie to the wrong person.
Response: A bit short staffed this morning. Sorry for the chaotic moment. Glad you enjoyed the food.

Chanpen Tee: The place looks so nice and clean. The staff is friendly. And chocolate croissants is good. I will tey their coffee next time.

Celestino Garcia: This coffee shop is dope. The coffee is a great and the pastries are A1. Breakfast sandwich is pretty good too.

Shelbi Svoboda: Pluma is an elegant bakery that the NE didn't know we needed! The pastries are fresh and brought out of their open kitchen to the front counters throughout your time so there's always something new and fresh to try. The latte ($4) is possibly the best I've had in DC. The breakfast sammy has port belly, pesto, and an egg open faced on delicious - if hard to cut - bread for $9.5. I highly recommend the avocado toast with an egg ($5.5 plus egg). Seating is limited so probably not wise for a group over four.

Meg Voorhis: Upscale bakery and coffee spot in the greater union market corridor. Fresh savory vegetarian options and good bread, but a bit pricy (~$50 lunch for 4 items) and service from the made to order menu was slow.

Hannah Yoo: Best pastries in the city!! Seriously I always try to stop in for a bite then end up eating the entire pastry case. I especially love the croissants and morning buns, and they also have beautiful salads and yummy pizzas. Also love that it’s a small business owned by locals. Love spending all day here drinking coffee and catching up with friends on weekends. Neighborhood gem!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We love our customers and couldn’t do it without you.

Alex: This breakfast sandwich is honestly one of the best in DC. Freshly made bun + tender, sweet, salty pork belly + perfectly cooked egg. Amazing.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so happy you enjoyed and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Rise Bakery: what do users think?


Dumdi B.: I’m always on the hunt for good treats that are both gluten and dairy free. I was so happy to find Rise Bakery! My favorite was the vegan double chocolate cupcake and the vegan cookies and cream cupcake. Both went really well with unsweetened almond milk. Such a nice treat for date night. Thank you for the existence of this place!
Response: Thanks so much for your review! Glad to hear you enjoyed the dairy-free cupcakes! We focused on adding some extra dairy-free/vegan items to the 2022 winter and spring menus :)

Sadie Vogt: Absolutely delicious! In town for work so I had to stop here and try their gluten free options! Recommend to every gluten free person in DC who has a sweet tooth!!

Peregrine Sky: Cute, unfortunately no dine in at this time, progressive bakery. Lots of options for all kinds of dietary restrictions, soy, nut, dairy and all gluten free. 18th Street sandwich was amazing! These are certainly the best gluten free pastries I’ve ever had but they are still not delicious like normal pastries!

JT Mitchell: Both the Oreo cupcake and the apple fritter were pretty good. Both are also vegan. I’d say I like the fritter better. Had some good bite to it. The cupcake was tasty. Pretty solid.

Lauren Canaday: Loved my grilled cheese and vanilla cupcake 😋 gluten free done right! (I didn't get the ice cream or iced tea there - that's just the photo I took.) I used doordash to get delivery on a busy day of conferences.

Tee Cole: Recently gone gluten-free so I'm in search of bakeries that specialize in that option. Very friendly staff. The brioche bread was the best! Unfortunately the cupcakes were too dry for my taste and the strawberry pastry didn't taste like strawberries. We drove from NW Baltimore just to try it out. Can't say I'll take that 45 min drive again.

Anna L: Very very happy with my experience at rise. Got the 18th street sandwich - delicious bread with arugula, herbed Mayo, bacon, and tomato. I also got a cherry turnover that was amazing. Yet to try the cheddar jalapeño loaf and the strawberry cheesecake but they look great. Can’t wait to come back another time.
Response: So happy to hear you enjoyed everything, Anna. Hopefully we will see you soon

Danielle Somers: Hands down best GF bakery in the DMV. All of their baked goods are incredible and their customer service is excellent. We had our wedding cake made there and everyone sung their praises. Worth the trip!

Bad Birdi: Was traveling through DC and came upon this gem. I have celiac disease and I was literally blown away by the food here. The biscuits were the best thing I've eaten in a long time. I ended up spending oodles of dollars on baked goods and I'm so very happy I did!

LP: Cute little gluten free shop with additional egg nut and soy free options. First gluten free spot I’ve tried that is moist and flavorful. Yum! I got the raspberry danish.

Le Caprice DC Café Bakery: what do users think?


Mark Blanchard: Not so french but not so bad. Pastries were hit or miss. Pain au chocolat was good, but flavored cookies were bland, no flavor at all. Chairs and tables were dirty with food crumbs everywhere. Staff was nice and friendly.

Jared Szuba: I have been a frequent customer at this bakery over the past two years. I can’t speak to the desserts, but I’ve had everything on the breakfast menu. Their breakfast sandwiches are sub-par, largely flavorless ingredients, no salt. Almost always a disappointment, but hey, there’s not really anything else around here when you want breakfast on the go. Firstly, the variety of baked goods is impressive. Their lunch sandwiches are hit or miss, I’ve tossed at least one in the can. That’s a problem, given how expensive the sandwiches are. The coffee is just fine, certainly not bad and does the job, but perhaps a bit overpriced for its quality. The croissants, however, hit it out of the park! They’re really as good as people say. Ultimately, I’m grateful to have this place in the neighborhood, disappointing as it can be. It’s a quiet place to work and has nice atmosphere. If the owners put a new effort in, this place could fulfill its high potential.

Cyntia: My breakfast croissant was buttery, flaky, and delicious. This has to be the best place in DC for a croissant, just like the sign says (it's what lured me in....). Iced latte could have used more coffee and a lot less milk, but that's my only issue. I'm already planning my next visit....
Response: Thank you very much !!! GM.

Anthony Stewart: Dirty—crumbs all over the chairs in the café, they took 20 minutes to bring out my order, the girl working the till looked as though she couldn’t be bothered... 😑 The “pain au chocolate” (simply chocolate croissant here) was actually decent, but the red velvet cake was a complete and utter catastrophe. It tasted old, and the frosting tasted of washing up liquid. It looked so promising, alas! it was just not meant to be. Had to toss it out after two small forks. Not worth a repeat. A “2” is being quite generous.

Steven Montoya: This is a nice neighborhood cafe for a morning sip and bite. I've been twice thus far, with the first time being busier than the second (today's drizzle likely played a part in this). The chai latte and gruyere & prosciutto sandwich were both very good, while the moon cookie and lavender grandmere were underwhelming (both tasted a bit stale). At ~$53 for two sandwiches, two cookies, a croissant, and two lattes, this cafe is decidedly middle of the road in terms of both cost and value.

Tammie Smith: Not sure why the reviews are so high. Just ate part of a croissant that tasted more like a hardened bread. Likely a combination of being poorly baked then left out to congeal and dry out. Not worth the calories and money. I threw it away.

TAI BERRY: They crafted my son's graduation cake. I couldn't have been happier with the results. It was beautiful and very tasty!!! The macaroons were so divine!!!! My family will be using them often.

roberto garcia: If you're latino, don't go there. Discrimination is at first hand. Sadly, employers and employees are Latinos. I ordered one thing, they brought a different one then I was blamed for it.
Response: Dear Roberto, As you wrote the employees in the front and the baker/sandwich maker that serving now, all are Latinos. We respect all our customers from any origin. Best regards

Sarah: Love this cafe, it's become my favorite place to get pastries, coffee, and breakfast wraps/sandwiches in the neighborhood. The staff is wonderful and always courteous. There is a patio in the front where you can eat safely distanced and enjoy the 14th St activity. This place has too much charm and character to skip. I've always had wonderful treats and meals here and can't recommend it more.
Response: Thanks. GM

T L: The place is cozy, its ambience is nice and the staff is friendly. However, for $5.60 I expected decent fruit on my fruit tart. Unfortunately the fruit toppings looked like they've been sitting on the counter for hours. It would've been better if each item had a price marked too.

Bread Furst: what do users think?


Leslie Williston: this place is so cool! fun to be able to watch people make fresh bread. The pastries we fabulous. i would love to see a lemon scone. overall wonderful inside and out. cool market vibe inside too

Sedona Reilly: Stopped here on my way home from American University and it was hands down the best breakfast place I have been to in the city thus far. The store is so cute, there’s everything you could imagine in stock. The employees were so warm and welcoming, and the food was delicious. My mom and I left with 2 gourmet bagel sandwiches and a few pastries for the road. I will be making this a regular spot when I move to the city!

Tan Sav: Ordered online for pickup. It was easy and my order was ready quickly. This was around 9am on a Saturday. The croissants were buttery, flaky and delicious. It was bit smashed, but that didn't take away from the taste. I got the gravlox bagel. It was salty, savory and tangy. I had never been inside before so it would have been nice to know where the pickup orders were located.

Mark Blanchard: It was my first time at Bread Furst, and I'm impressed. Their baguette is top notch, the second best baguette in the DMV area, which is a bold statement. We tried a few pastries that were also delicious. I love the open area and how you can see them making the baguettes from scratch - great experience. The only downside is that around noon, they had run out of multiple items that we wanted to try, and also several pastry items were not labeled (no name or description) so had to ask multiple times what each thing was (they weren't obvious items, or if they were, the flavor wasn't obvious). Other than that, the patio is pretty, but you unfortunately inhale car exhaust from the car wash that's adjacent to the cafe.

Sticks Forks & Others: Stopped by today for the first time - a 30+ minute drive. Well worth the trip. Very impressed overall. Main goal was to get some canele, which is very hard to come by, especially the good ones. Wasn’t disappointed. Picked up a bag full and a chocolate croissant. All very, very good. The canele was firm and crispy on the outside and moist on the inside - just the way it should be. The same goes for the chocolate croissant - perfectly done with the perfect amount of chocolate. There is so much to see at the store. From pasta to peanut butter, you could spend hours eye shopping. There is parking behind the back and few outdoor seats in front and back of the store. Definitely worth the trip and worth revisiting.

Y B: Do you like the taste of burned toast? This is what the crust tasted like as I discovered the condition of the bread in the paper bag. Additional worth noting that not posting prices is a basic form of economic discrimination.

Dondré: Bread furst is a different type of bakery. Not only do they have fresh bread but they also offer a plethora of local pastas, sauces, dried fruits plus more. The staff is friendly and the options are plenty. There are options for outdoor dining as well which is always nice when the weather is great.

V Rossi: Their sourdough bread is incredible! 🍞 They sell sourdough starter for $3.50. I bought some and fed it once home and it tripled in size. A nice healthy starter. I did have to ask few people the first person I asked didn't realize they sell starter...

dwayne gulley: Late review but it was a must. Breakfast here is amazing. Very busy but worth the wait as everybody in here is visibly working hard. Manager or owner was walking the floor and stocking and recommended the mixed jars to mix alcohol with. That was a solid recommendation and a hit with my holiday crew.

Blake Ellis: I've never written a Google review before, and I don't want to sound like a total Karen, but I feel like I've gotten to the point where I have to add something here. I live close to Bread Furst, so I come here a lot, and every time I visit, I tell myself not to come back. Then of course I'm lured in by the great smelling bread, and I get frustrated all over again, so I guess I'm doing this to myself. I've probably been here between 10-15 times and I don't think they've ever gotten the order correct. This is just in reference to brunch food. When I've ordered online, they've forgotten to make the order completely (both times) and I had to order it again in person, which defeated any efficiency. When I've ordered in person, many times they've gotten the order wrong or have forgotten to put all the ingredients on or have forgotten to make it completely even though I've just put it in. The past few times I've visited, I waited for a while, and then someone looked over at me and asked what I was waiting for before explaining to me that they must gotten their wires crossed or something because no one had started making it. I wouldn't review with such vehement frustration if Breadfurst wasn't so expensive. But it's become a bit of a running joke in our house that the order will always go wrong when we come here. The pastries are great. I just don't think it's worth this whole ordeal--the mistakes, the very hectic lines, the insultingly pretentious staff--just for an overpriced and reliably cold breakfast.

SakuSaku Flakerie: what do users think?


Kate S: My favorite place in DC for croissants—so flaky and yummy. They have so many innovative sweet and savory ones. The key lime cruffin is divine if you can get one. They seem to run out fast. I live a block away and have only been able to snag one once on my weekly visit. That is a croissant in the shape of a muffin with key lime inside and meringue on top. The almond croissant is also very good. I didn’t like the curry meat bun or cheesecake soufflé that much. Today I bought the strawberry tiramisu cruffin which was very good.

Austin Graff: Along Cleveland Park's main street is a small bakery that sells Japanese-French pastries like strawberry cream rolls and pina colada cruffins. Run by a husband-wife team, there's often a line. Here's why you should go: 1) Food: Their menu often rotates with seasonal pastries, but you can always find some basics like croissants (plain, pistachio chocolate, chocolate, etc.). Many of their pastries use Japanese-inspired flavors like their matcha white chocolate chip cookie. 2) Drinks: They have a drink menu, including coffee items. 3) Space: It's a tiny space. Due to the pandemic, they ask one customer/party at a time, which can cause a line. Next door is an outdoor patio inside Al Volo that is open for Saku Saku customers during the day. It's a great spot to work from or meet with friends. 4) Service: The staff are kind and proud of what they have created (as they should be). When I was there, a man was very upset by the line and the staff handled it with grace.

dipika: omg. My only issue with SakuSaku is that it's not closer to me. The croissants are inventive and next level flaky. The buns are super flavorful. The drinks are perfectly made without too much of any taste. The garden patio is beautifully decorated and maintained and the whole experience is perfect for any social gathering. Love. LOVE!

P Ak: The plain croissant needed more time in the oven. Chocolate croissant texture was good but the chocolate was on the sweet side. Almond croissant was the winner of the bunch. Update Valentine’s Day heart pastry was a rose lychee combo. A bit dense and pricy at $8. Pain au Chocolat was good but the plain croissant was OK. The kouign amann with yuzu was pretty good. Pistachio croissant needed a bit more pistachios. Update The mushroom Danish was good but it needed a bit more cooking. The ham and cheese Danish was ok. The Japanese cheese cake was good.

Hessa Al Maian: I am in love with the secret garden!! Right in the heart of DC this lovely place offers a nice seating area at the back patio. A nice spot for relaxing or meeting with a friend. Didn't get a chance to try the zatar croissant but the spinach/feta was goooood

Roo G: Highly recommended! Contacted them via Instagram from the UK to arrange a birthday cake for my husband, as we were going to be staying locally. Reply was swift and they were friendly and helpful in giving me options and pricing, and were flexible when I asked to change something. The cake itself did not disappoint, an absolutely delicious chocolate raspberry layer cake. We also visited twice during our trip to indulge in their delicious pastries, and certainly plan to return on our next visit to DC. We sampled the chocolate almond croissant, lemon & blueberry cake and the banana caramel cruffin. Everything was fresh and delicious!

Audrey D: If you love flakey pastries, SakuSaku Flakerie will not disappoint. They offer light, sweet, and savory treats. The coffee was also great. I will definitely be coming back, since this is now my favorite place in DC to get pastries 🤤

Nguyen Le: Amazing hidden germs in the heart of Washington DC. The owner and their employees are super friendly and hospitality. You cannot go wrong with any croissant that they have available. It is super "flakerie" and crunchy, my personal favorite is Chocolate Almond Croissant pair with a Match Latte for a cold winter month or a Pistachio Croissant pair with SakaSaku Sparking Lemonade for a hot day in summer. Oh did i mentioned that they have the best Japanese Soufflé Cheesecake reminded me of the one i had in Japan. in Summary SakuSaku will make you want to return back. Thank you Saku Saku team for a wonderful brunch experience

Adam Kapp: The lemon ginger cookie and the gluten free scone were both very good. I also liked the za'atar and cheese croissant. Overall, I was a little disappointed in the selection. I was expecting more interesting and unusual flavors. Other than the croissant, most of these items are things you would find at any bakery in DC. Update: apparently a lot of the more interesting items sell out early in the morning? I wish you could order these items online for pick up.

Johnny Dubbaneh: Their savory and sweet pastries are amazing! Had the Truffle Mushroom, Ham & Cheese, Za’atar & Gruyère - all so delicious. Kouign Amman and almond croissants also so good

Sahar Bayounis: A great local bakery in Alexandria! 🥐 One of the freshest croissants/pasties you’ll ever try! ♥️✨ Staff were really nice and welcoming. The place is a little small and there’s not many seats inside, but it’s very cozy. You can enjoy your cup of coffee while working and listening to some awesome tunes (they have good taste in music). 🎶 See pictures! 📷

H: Reasonably priced bakery with a wide selection of pastries, cookies, cakes, and assorted small packaged treats to go. $5 cake slices and $3+ for most individual items. They have outdoor seating but the view is of the gas station and traffic. Decently made treats for the price although on this day the indoor seating felt like it was heated for a very warm day.

Kira Yeary: Very impressed! Pricing was great. Got a ham & cheese croissant which was delicious. Cafe mocha which was rich/tasty and a chocolate croissant which was good but could’ve used a bit more chocolate. Overall would definitely go again, enjoyed very much.

Alfred Jones: Gorgeous bakery! Impressive selection. I got a zatar croissant, it was flakey and perfect. The daily quiche was delicious! Highly recommend.

Sarah Lucas: I've bought 3 cakes from this local bakery within 2 years and each time they get better and better! The staff are always friendly, the baked goods are always fresh with quite an assortment to choose from, and my oh my, is their strawberry & crème cake delicious! It's my favorite cake ever and one I buy every time it's either my partner's birthday or mine - we love it! I love going to firehook bakery and hope they thrive as a local business so I can keep buying more cakes from them!

Sarah Ali: Amazing local place with fresh pastries I ordered Zatar croissant, feta cheese with spinach, banana muffins and drip coffee All is delicious 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

N.E. Coviello (necworld): Great location with parking and outdoor tables. The treats at Firehook Bakery are delicious. When I lived in DC I loved to get an oversized gingersnap cookie & today I had one & it was exactly as I remembered it! Yummy!

Allen Juda: Small space with big flavors. Coffee, pastries, breads, and sandwiches are all delicious. Seating inside and outdoors. This is the kind of coffee shop every community wants. Small parking lot, but plenty of on street parking.

Hilda Kroll: My birthday surprise today was the delivery of two bags full of delicious pastries that just had to be shared with friends. All arrangements were made over the phone from Massachusetts, and everything was perfect. Great customer service and made-from-scratch pastries that melt in your mouth.

Cody B: Was not impressed with the coffee here and they had no milk substitutes. It is almost April and they still have their Christmas decorations up.... I can’t help to think if they are neglecting taking down some simple decorations they are probably neglecting cleaning certain parts of their kitchen

Jenna Wollman: It’s not often that a location has amazing service, food, and even seating but this place had it all. It’s a great environment for anyone and everyone. Everyone there was so kind. My latte was amazing as well as my Turkey Avacado sandwich! We had the best, most relaxing time here. 10/10.

Adriana Rakshana: Totally get the DC Tatte hype now! Didn't think the drinks and the pastries would be as good as they were. Tried out the house halwa latte, definitely recommend it! The cherry pistachio tart was great, not too sweet! My friend quite enjoyed her pear tart and matcha latte as well!

C F: So excited this location opened in our neighborhood. Delicious food and desserts like the other locations with super friendly service and a brand new space! Beautiful outdoor sitting with nice chairs, tables and umbrellas. My favorite meal is the potato, bacon mushroom Shakshuka with sourdough bread to dip and if you like dark chocolate definately try the dark chocolate mousse cake for dessert. I've also had the expresso on occasion and it's great too!

Victor Immanuel: Food are good, Many choices for breakfast and brunch.Latte is just standard, is not my type of coffee (too acid).Overall good, surely I will visit again. 👍

Luisa Spizzotin: I love this place. The cappuccino is like in Italy!! The staff is kind but the speed is not the best. However it remains the best place to have breakfast!

Vishal Kumar: It's one of best bakeries, lunch and brunch places that one can try. Their croissants, sandwiches and tartines are great ! This is a avocado and sweet potato tartine.

Jay Graham: Adorable place with a stylish interior and patio seating. It felt very comfortable to sit inside and relax. The staff were pleasant. They have amazing looking bakery items, including gluten-free treats. I only tried one, but it was very good, and very reasonable prices for the level of goods. I also had their Tatte House Latte, and it was delicious. However, my partner had the chai latte and it was very weak, more milk than tea, and not much flavor at all. So maybe skip that, but definitely some great items to be had in this lovely cafe.

Munera A: The bakeries and pastries were actually Delicioussss.. but we also ordered the shakshoka it was 5/10! The Mozzarella sandwich was below average. In my opinion they should work more on their salty foods

Mona Rezvani: Come here and take your IG pics but don’t expect good food or coffee. The ambiance is good and the staff are helpful (some are just overwhelmed by the sheer volume of customers), but the food is a major pass from me. If Tatte is supposed to be a medley of Turkish/Arab/Moroccan/Mediterranean/Iranian/Israeli/generally SWANA-inspired cuisine, it misses the mark in a big way. Where’s the olive oil, cilantro, or feta cheese to accent the dishes? Why is the slata on my bread and not next to it? If zaatar is on the menu, why is it dry? Is shakshouka just a buzz word for “eggs served in things” because no North African home would ever serve you “corn and spinach” and call it a shakshouka. If you know, you know and sadly Tatte doesn’t.

Jennifer Schaffer: My favorite bakery and cafe in DC. The gluten free baked goods are the best in the city! For a meal, I recommend the lamb hash and the avocado salmon toast. One of the best spots for both doing work during the day and weekend brunch. The gluten free menu is delicious and varied. Their coffee and chai tea latte are both good.

Amy Workman: Pastry perfection. So many options we had to come two days in a row on our DC visit. The croissant breakfast sandwich was excellent. The house latte absolutely delicious, sweet but not too sweet. Their regular iced latte too is perfect. I saw almost everyone grab a house juice, so we picked up a pear juice and it was like pear cider, so good. Wonderful service, they really focus on it and it shows. The line can get long and it moves fast, but probably not the place to come if you're in a hurry in the morning. Lots of great seating outside. Great spot to pick up a gift, wish we had more room in our luggage.

Vince Granado: Walking around the area and we stumbled across this gem of a cafe/bakery. The savory scone and the breakfast sandwich was outstanding. The flat white coffee was also very lovely. Highly recommend this joint.

Ellen: Food and latte were great! We got their sweet french toast, traditional shakshuka, and their roasted mushroom, spinach & potato bowl. The roasted mushroom bowl was so creamy and good. I also got their gingerbread tile cookie which is full of spices and not too sweet. The line moved quickly and we easily found a seat. Metered parking wasn't too hard to find. I went on Saturday morning.

Kevin Chen: This place remind me of some old Europe bakery shop. I must say they are very familiar. The americano is so so, latte is good but a bit sweet I think too much sugar. You can also come here for brunch. It has both inside and outside seating, inside about 40+ tables outside about 20+ tables Street parking no free.

Linda Yang: This place is a great plus to the city. If there wasn't a little unanticipated missing order, I would've given 5 star for the food with no doubt. We ordered 3 at the usual busy morning time so the pastry box started off just right until we found our 2 other orders didn't exactly go through so later we had to double check. After all, it was a good experience.The staff is super nice and friendly though.

Val Z.: Great place, I always walk away with more than what I come in for. The food is mostly healthy but if you’re on a diet please avert your eyes from the counter with all those delicious croissants and other delights. Coffee is really good here also. I like the service, I didn’t ever feel rushed even when I ordered a lot of items to go. The servers come to your several times despite this not being a full restaurant. Everyone is always nice and I love the deco. All their locations have a similar concept which is very refreshing and I’m glad they are opening more spots.

Black Star Dust: Sunny and bright Ambience is delightful. The service is usually fast. Pastries and breakfast offerings are pretty good. Diverse food offerings. Everything from American, African, Arabic, French and other tasty options. They offer brunch all day. Only thing, the lattés could be a little richer; oatmeal options are quite watery. Maybe try another oatmilk brand?

citygirldc: This may be my new favorite place for a lunch delivery. Ordered the roasted mushroom spinach and potato bowl, chicken salad sandwich. They have really amazing bread. Also had a latte that was packaged perfectly and still hot. Everything was delicious 😋

TPMT Associates: Such a fantastic hip cool joint with lots of people, long lines but definitely worth the wait. This is what every brunch place in the world should model themselves after. Good energy, healthy choices and lots of selection. The food was so tasty and reasonable in price. Even if it’s self serve the service by the people there was still great. Will definitely come back again n again to try their delicious treats

Danielle S: Great atmosphere, great menu and all the yummiest bakery goods! Definitely a place to check out. The only issue I had was ordering food and a coffee but my coffee beverage came out, had to track down where to get it 😄 but other than that, good location with outdoor seating & the staff is friendly. Can't wait to go back and try more items.

Gregorys Coffee: what do users think?


Scott “DC Cheetah” Suchyta: As someone who seeks out good coffee, Gregory's is a place that I will go into if I don't have the option for a shop that roasts in-house. I find the coffee more palatable than something like Starbucks and I've generally had good experiences with the staff. It's still not my favorite coffee, but it meets the the threshold that I'll have it when I desperately need coffee.
Response: Scott, thank you so much for the feedback. All of our coffee is roasted in house. Sorry to here the coffee at the 1900 L st location wasn't up to standards. I would recommend trying our Peppermint Mocha on your next visit.

Krystal Perez: Cute little coffee shop I found on my lunch break this evening , the baristas are so sweet and creative I felt at home here ... they allow inside seating and presented me with a fancy latte, with art included! Keep it up ladies, your the best !!!
Response: Thanks for the feedback Krystal! Next time you visit trying one of our cold brew options, I recommend the Flower Power.

Saray Fischer: Stopped by this afternoon for a quick pick me up, I was surprised that this cafe was open but it feels like home , great music, soft lighting, tons of plants, and the male barista served me at my table, I loved it. I felt special and will be returning when I need to get out of the office more often . I will be recommending this chain to my coworkers , family , and friends !

Monika Raj: The staff are among the nicest folks I’ve ever met and make visiting this place worth it. However, the store consistently has issues with their online ordering system…often times it’s down or underestimates how long it will take to be ready. This in no way is the fault of the staff and they do their best to work with what they have…but this is not reliant if you are hoping to grab coffee before a meeting
Response: Monika, thank you so much for the feedback and for bring this issue to our attention. We will address this right away.

Elizabeth Hung: Loved my experience and drink here! The indoor decor is so hip and cute. The menu choices all sounded amazing but I went with the matcha latte with oat milk. It was perfectly matcha-y and unsweetened (my favorite). One of the best matcha drinks I have gotten in the dc area. My friend got the chai and he said it was great as well.
Response: Awesome news Elizabeth, thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed the Matcha! See you soon!

J D: One of the best mocha lattes I've ever had. It wasn't too sweet, had a great flavor, good size, good price, and well made. Place had a good atmosphere. Was clean for a 2PM visit. Had a bit of foot traffic, and pretty busy, but only one person in front of me. Coffees were coming out at a good pace and the staff was nice. I'd definitely come back and go out of my way if I were in the area to get another coffee from here.

Linsay Culver: --------Friday, September 7, 2018 @ 1pm----- I'm sipping one of their mochas as I write this and I have to say I'm impressed. It isn't often that I get a great flavored coffee that isn't over sweetened. The coffee doesn't even have a hint of bitterness. The barista pulls a perfect shot. She also didn't overuse the mocha sauce or flavor. The coffee tastes a lot like Evan Bros out of Sandpoint, Idaho. I also got a chocolate chip cookie, which isn't the best, but it's decent. I'm going to save the rest of it and put it in the microwave at home. I think it will be better. Chris, the cashier was super nice and extremely helpful. Wish I would've seen the baristas name, too. She is a very talented barista. Sheade a perfect heart in my crema! Anyways, the atmosphere was modern industrial. Not overly comfortable, but quaint. The service was excellent and fast. I'll be back when I'm back in DC in a few weeks. If you are in the area try it. If a place can make a decent mocha, the rest of their coffees are generally going to be good, too.

Sharon Angela Naidoo: This place ticks all the boxes, good service, GREAT COFFEE and wonderful atmosphere. I have visited this coffee place everyday I stayed here. The coffee always had a personal touch. The picture below is a cortado with skim milk.

Fred Kingman: My wife and I agree that this cafe has good drip coffee, and great customer service. There is indoor and outdoor seating, we chose outdoors. She had the breakfast burrito. I tried the skinny and it was wholesome. Definitely worth a second visit next time were in town.
Response: Fred, thank you so much for your feedback. Next time your in town, your coffee and breakfast sandwich will be on us./

Adam Rutkowski: There needs to be some customer service training. Business opens at 7am. I showed up at 7:03. It was raining outside. The door was unlocked. I entered and was told I had to leave because you weren’t open, yet. Instead of inviting me to sit in the foyer area in a chair, out of the rain, I was escorted out of the space and the door was locked behind me… in the rain.
Response: Hi Adam - I'm so sorry to hear about your experience this morning. It is definitely not how we should have welcomed you in out of the rain and served you right away even as we were setting. I've addressed this with the team and I want to invite you back in for coffee and a treat on us to make up for this. DeeDee ,the manager on site will be there and will take care of you! So sorry again and looking forward to seeing you again. -Greg

Sharice M: A new favorite!! A very cute breakfast or quick treat spot. The menu has a nice range of options for food, baked goods and drinks. The decor is beautiful. The whole establishment breathes cozy to me. I enjoyed my meal, the staff was pleasant and provided great customer service. I ordered the breakfast sandwich, ham & Swiss croissant and a cinnamon sugar donut. I also tried the essence green tea. Everything was delicious and refreshing. I will definitely be back.

Claudia N.: First off, I will like to say my overall experience here was wonderful, I am not paid or given any incentive to write this review. I was craving Croissants and decided to stop by to order take out. Let's start with parking. I mean, it is Pike and Rose in Bethesda. Parking is expected to be a nightmare but lucky for me, I visited on a weekday morning so found parking easy (Parking meters). The vibes from the street looks very modern and I love that they have the menu at their entrance so you can see what is on their menu and the prices. Inside was a dream! Plants, peaceful and soft music perfect for that social media foodie picture or story. You can come here for a wonderful date, to get some work done and just a peace full breakfast morning. I came in for Croissants and left with 3 other items 😭. I will say it is more on the pricey side but again it is located in Pike and Rose in Bethesda there is no way I am getting prices I am comfortable with 😂. The smoked Salmon sandwich was really good, the Beignets with cinnamon sugar were just perfect, the strawberry cream filling Croissants had the perfect balance and my chocolate Croissant was DIVINE.

Sophia D: This is such a cute shop with pretty good pastries. Nice and flakey!!! They have fun and different dessert and sandwich options. We got an almond croissant that was delicious, a chocolate croissant that did not disappoint, and a creme brûlée Doughnut that had an AMAZING filling (and a good amount of it). The coffee options are a bit limited, but that’s not the main reason why you would go here anyway. The environment is calm and cute. Would recommend if you are nearby.

Chanpen Tee: I ordered decaf latte. It is good coffee. It tastes smooth and has a nice aroma. The store is clean. I like the atmosphere. Bakery is delicious as well

Jenna Wollman: A favorite coffee shop of mine. I wish it was located where I live! Friendly service, great pastries and coffee. My breakfast sandwich was so great, it had a cheesy spicy sauce that gave it a bit of a kick. It’s the kind of place that I wouldn’t mind working at! If I come back to Washington, you can find me here!

Peter Ferguson: This place is great. The baked good are amazing. They actually have my favorite Avocado toast of any place. The service is excellent. They are all very nice, warm, and welcoming. It is a great place to stop in if you need to work for a hour (they have WIFI), and also great to meet a friend over coffee. If you are in Pike and Rose, you should definitely stop by.
Response: Hi Peter! Thank you so much for the kind words. Hope to see you again soon!

Michael Cho: Nice place to sip some coffee while having some delicious pastry. Coffees and their pastries are very good. This place is very spacious, relaxing, and clean. No stupid music blasting like some cafes. I really like their donuts. They're quite unique and very tasty. Their Boston cream is very good.
Response: Thank you for the kind words Michael! We're so happy to hear you enjoy both our pastries and coffee. Hope to see you in again soon!

Sophie Nguyen: Pretty good quiche and an okay avocado toast. Donut is okay but great strawberry jelly! Great croissants!

Sarah Nguyen: Cute coffee and bakery near the Hilton Canopy hotel in north Bethesda area. I had the honey matcha and breakfast sandwich. Sandwich was freshly made and matcha was tasty. Love the ambiance and service.

Meg Gargulinski: Loved my experience here! I got a drip coffee and the latte and the chai latte were both delicious too. HIGHLY recommend the mushroom croissant as well! And donuts were great too. Good amount of indoor seating and easy to access from parking garages right around the corner (first 2 hours are free).

La Colombe Coffee Roasters: what do users think?


Joseph Mathias: Cute little coffee shop in Blagden Alley. I frequent La Colombe often, this was my first one in DC. Location is GREAT, with the wall art. On a warm summer day, you can take your coffee to go and explore the many arts in the alley. The only complaint I have is that the menu is very limited, and they have only pastries (I attribute this to the fact that there’s 2 other coffee shops in the alley, that’s probably why. But it would be nice to see them add bagels or other small bites to the menu). Something else as well (and mentioned by a few others) is that there’s No WiFi, so if you’re looking to get coffee and catch up on work, this is not the best place. Staff was nice!

Tarek Ghaly: By far the best coffee in DC! I have tried several coffee places around Washington but I would rate this as the best of them all...staff are very friendly and welcoming. The place is cozy and in a quiet area behind Marriott courtyard..tried the biscotti and cannele from their bakeries and they weren't as good as expected.. restrooms are clean and tidy.. I would definitely visit again.

Phil Armstrong: Popped in here for a cup and a pastry, and enjoyed both very much. The pastry was a delicious blueberry scone with a vanilla icing drizzle on top. The medium roast drip was excellent. I like its location in the neat little alley, too.

Josh Roberts: You can't beat the charming location of this coffee shop. I've been working nearby at the convention center and various area hotels for a while but I didn't know about this hidden gem called "Blagden Alley." With its colorful murals and wide cobblestone streets, it's such a gift to DC. It's like if Old Town Alexandria had an artsier vibe. Anyway, back to La Colombe. I had a cappuccino here and found it to have a light, frothy texture and a robust flavor. After being outside in what felt like 20 degree weather, this was a much needed respite.

Joan Melendez: I love this space! I 💜this coffee company. I have my places in DC and NYC that I do frequent. I just am wishing and saying a little prayer... that La Colombe would look at National Harbor when they are needing their next spot!

Aaron Peters: Great selection of single source coffees - it's unclear if they come from a single farm or just a single region. Super friendly staff, and they have oat milk chai on tap.

Jorge Zurita-Coronado: Great location with friendly staff. Great selection of pastries as well. Inside seating is a little limited because of the pandemic. Great place to do some reading or get some work done.

Charles Michael: The place does get busy because it is amazing. The staff is friendly and the location has fantastic coffee. I was able to get a lot of work done. The place does get busy because it is amazing.coffee my favorite, tried their hot chocolate for the first time and love it. Quality drinks, quality wifi, quality space. All around wonderful My go-to coffee shop in DC 😊 The people are wonderful, the ambiance cozy, and the drinks are DELICIOUS! Their iced chai tea latte is my favorite, tried their hot chocolate for the first time and love it. Quality drinks, quality wifi, quality space. All around wonderful

Sergio Ortiz: I absolutely love the style of this place. Small, hole-in-the-wall joint that serves excellent coffee. It's like a secret gift to the area. Danny the hostess was knowledgeable and knows her coffee! The pour-overs here are great and they feature various types of both espresso and drip coffees from dark to light! Music is enjoyable and not distracting. The style of the pottery they use is incredibly beautiful and striking. It comes from a handmade seller in Italy which gives it an authentic feel to touch. Definitely coming again next time I visit DC!

Jenn Z: We just followed the crowed and it led us to this coffee place. It wasn’t disappointing at all! Very good coffee and bakeries. It resides in Blagden Valley which was interesting itself. It was an old shabby part of town now is under going transforming to a better place. The colorful murals lighten up the valley. Parking was easy ( from what I observed) just park on the brick road.

Compass Coffee: what do users think?


Chanpen Tee: I ordered Latte. It's very good coffee. The smell is nice. There are a lot of seating. It's a nice atmosphere
Response: Glad you enjoyed your visit, hope to see you back soon!

Natalia Suska: Best coffee at Georgetown and arguably all of DC! Came here so many time while studying at GU and they nailed the drinks every time. The baristas are super sweet and helpful too. The almond butter lattes are my favorite but everything tastes amazing.
Response: Hey Natalia - Thanks! The team tries their best to make your day better. We love almond butter lattes as well!

Teresita Bañon Leal: Good place to sit and work on something or just to have a coffee with a friend.Perfect to grab a coffee. Generally you will have to do a line to grab a drink but the line goes fast.Good quality of coffee and nice staff.
Response: Glad you had a great experience, thanks for coming in!

Micaela O: Cool big coffee shop. Perfect place to come and get some work or reading done while enjoying some delicious coffee. Had the almond butter latte and it was insane! Quick and good service as well.

Hind KH: There is no doubt that their coffee is always good. I really love this branch, and for me it is the best one. It is somehow big and it has plenty of tables that makes it a perfect spot to have your work done.

Logan Deyo: Great coffee shop with nice baristas, plenty of places to work (outlets galore), and good coffee. Plus a little fireplace in the back!
Response: Hey Logan - Thanks! We love the many outlets too! Charging our devices and charging our spirits!

Marc Neilson: This is my favorite Compass and the setting is ultra charming and cozy - complete with modern fire place. I have the BEST cafè au laits here with oatmilk. I just wish they were open later.
Response: Hey Marc - We are open until 7:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays! Hope to see you on the weekend and wind down!

Jennifer: Good spot, clean bathrooms, and solid coffee. Iced coffee didn’t have too much ice at all, which is a pet peeve of mine. And they have a tap for water (still or sparkling) which is a nice bonus!
Response: Hey Jennifer - Thanks for dropping by! I'm glad our bathrooms were clean and the Cold Brew was REAL Good!

P. E.: I visited here because. I heard it was somewhere you have to visit in Georgetown, but it didn't live up to my expectations. The coffee was good and the staff seems pretty busy so don't blame them for that, but it was crowded with a huge line and when I went to the bathroom it was totally gross with no toilet paper, and stuff all over the floor. A layer of dust on the sink with a hair in it...?! I'll stick with Saxby's next time.
Response: Hey P.E - I'm sorry our restroom was in poor condition when you came in. I'm glad you enjoyed the coffee. I'll work with my team to ensure the restrooms are in better shape. Hope you'll try us again in the future.

Zelin Li: Compass Coffee does a great job in terms of consistency and this shop is no exception. Lots of varieties, pour-over, cold brew, what have you. The staff are knowledgeable. The location can’t be better. The only downside is you may find a lot students sitting here for hours thus it isn’t easy to find a seat :P

Kogibow Bakery: what do users think?


Erringer Helbling: Incredible experience. Highly recommend if you want something local and delicious. He did a wonderful job making the most beautiful and deliciously light cake for my husband’s dinner party.

Daljit Kaur Grewal: Sooooo good. Ordered a tres leches cake with Bavarian cream for a 24th birthday. The cake was incredibly moist, light, and delicious, and so beautifully decorated with fruits. 8” was more than enough and very affordable at $25. I wish I could’ve left a tip. (Candles purchased separately)

Vincent Honn: Seen this Sign with a phone # on it in a Movie called" How Do You Know" while Reece Witherspoon was walking in front of it.... so had to Google the # ....lol!

Nata Portillo: Great Bakery , been buying cakes here for over 10 years now and still the same great taste and same great designs and everything, the owner and his worker are always on point amazing bakery.

nebur2k2: This Bakery makes awesome cakes. I have always bought my Kids Birthday for a straight ten years. You get for what you pay well worth it. You could currently place your order by phone, you pick up and pay at the front door.

Hai Nguyen: This has to be the most horrible bakery ever on the planet earth. For starters the owner all he does is watches over his parking spaces. He doesn't watch over the store but all he does is hang outside and doesn't let anyone park at his four empty parking spaces. I politely told him I'm going to go to your bakery store to look at your wedding cakes but he doesn't care. I noticed other cars are also trying to park there and he does the same thing to them too. I finally was able to find a parking space a few blocks down the street. Customer service was also pretty bad. The person cared more about playing with their phone than helping me out. Got a cake ordered and went to pick it up two weeks later. I had to wait 3 hours, seems like they forgot and wow, my cake was so embarrassing. It fell apart and the icing wasn't even dry. I think with my non-baking skills that never even baked a single cake in my life, could of done a better job than them. STAY AWAY!!!!

Dany Martinez: Cakes are delicious! But the reason I gave it a three star rating was because my mother went to pick up a cake and it turned out too big for her to carry. So she asked for help and the lady said "There's noone here to help you"...poor customer service...I see many different ways that could've gone

Solage Polanco: We order a cake there 3 day before the event. They told me to go and pick it up at 5 the party was at 8 I had to wait there for almost 2hour I guess they forgot about the cake. The color was the wrong color so the had to add more color, when I got home I placed the cake in the table went upstairs to get ready when I got back the cake felt apart. I cry ....I think they forgot about the cake and when they so me they started doing. I didn't have a cake for the event, and it tasted terrible because the cake icing was not dry.

Ethan Phung: Was a great place! I ordered a cake there was really quick to order, came by to get the cake a couple hours later and it was delicious, everyone ate a slice. Had to come back for more!

Monica Andrews: Kogibow is a small bakery in Adams Morgan. While the custom cakes look good, I go there for their avocado bubble tea. They've seemed to perfect the tapioca cooking time and have also refused to make the avocado tea when the avocados were not ripe enough, which I see as a true sign of dedication to quality. The mango tea is also quite good.

Tout De Sweet Pastry Shop: what do users think?


Eileen Coxe: Super cute pastry shop. Everything looks amazing. Coffee is good and so are the pastries. Would recommend going here to get some small bites and coffee.

P I: Incredible croissants and European style pasties. A must if you're in the area. Growing up overseas I often have a hard time finding pasties that compare. This bakery shop does it right!

Rachael Houston-Carter: I ordered macarons for my baby shower hostesses as gifts and not only were they delicious but they came wrapped beautifully with the perfect color ribbon as well! Highly recommend!

ShinGoonMin: Sweet discovery! We've been watching those fancy dessert-making shows on Netflix, and we felt so thrilled to find an actual "pâtisserie" in the next town over that seemed so promising. We dropped by to check it out. The shop was easy to find, although parking right in front of it may be a bit challenging. The shop was big enough to have a few sit-down tables. It was airy, bright, and clean. The selection, displayed so neatly, did not disappoint us visually...everything looked so decadent and mouth-watering. Once we've tasted our orders, we knew that we've hit the jackpot! We've found a perfectly sweet spot that we wouldn't mind going back to... The flavors that sounded so rich and fancy proved to be so. It was money well-spent. We actually ordered several more to-go!

Cintia Cantuária: Very friendly staff, although small quantity. Would give 5 stars if food (quiche, deserts, and cappuccino) were more flavorful and quiches were served warmer. Almond croissant is really good though!

Jennifer Lang: Delightful. I have been in Bethesda in a hotel for a long period for work. Breakfast has been a challenge. No more. Stopped here for desserts for colleagues a couple weeks ago. Came back for breakfast. Bit pricy but great coffee, perfect fruit and and an amazing pastry in a zen little spot w cheerful counter service.

Kailee Sebastian-Mixx: Quality, skilled baking here. We mostly order custom cakes and special orders from them -- the quality is excellent and pastries and cakes both delicious and attractive. If we were to choose one, the pastries would be on the better side. That said, we think the custom orders are better than the mass produced regular menu items.

Zain Ibrahim: Consistently awesome service! Everything here is super tasty, definitely a must try if you are in Bethesda

Armen Danielyan: Ordered large cappuccino with whole milk. Neither was it large nor did it taste like whole milk or espresso.

Wendy Molina: Hands down the best pastry shop in all Bethesda at this time. Dec 2021Try the almond croissant, Eclair and opera pastry.
