Dear PoPville – New Bakery Coming to Petworth?

828 Upshur St, NW

Dear PoPville,

Have I missed a recent scuttlebutt, or is this actually new and exciting news?? I got wind of a bakery supposedly opening in the 800 block of Upshur! I was picking up dry cleaning at Kilroy’s the other day, and it smelled amazingly of baked goods. The woman at Kilroy’s told me there’s a bakery opening up next door (at what I assume used to be an Ethiopian restaurant, the building with the green awning that says “Injera” just to the right of Kilroy’s). Apparently they’re doing wholesale and testing recipes now, but plan to open a storefront. Pretty please tell me it’s true!!

It’s true! Though it’s not going to be a traditional bakery. It’s mostly going to focus on carrot cakes and bean pies. It will be called Salaam Bakery and they are planning on fixing up the storefront. Right now, they are focusing on wholesale but hope to open for retail sales by the end of May. And word on the street is that the carrot cakes are phenomenal. We’ll revisit for a proper judging after they’ve been open for a bit.
