Au Bon Pain Coming to New Building at 801 17th Street, NW


“Dear PoPville,

Do you happen to know what food joint us coming in at the corner of 17th and H streets NW, right next to the Emirates airline office? I walk by it all the time but the permits are for the building owner for first tenant build-out so it’s not possible to see who is going into the space.”

Washington Business Journal reports it will be the District’s 21st Au Bon Pain.

    Does that mean that they’ll close one of the existing ABPs in the neighborhood? I know that this town likes to have multiples of the same coffee / sandwich shop within a couple of blocks of each other, but there are at least three ABPs within a 4 block radius or so of that location (17th & Pennsylvania, 20th & Pennsylvania, 19th & K). Can we please get some variety?!

    • I’m hoping this new one replaces the 17/Penn location. That store has gone way downhill and is horrendous.
