Ed. Note: Just after 9am this morning a reader writes: “Bakery wiped out within an hour of opening. Clearly a much needed addition to the neighborhood.”

Next up in incredible transformations – from Real Estate office to Bakery – Bread Furst is now open in Van Ness:

“Bread Furst is a project many years in the making, and a result of Mark Furstenberg’s relentless pursuit to make the kind of remarkable bread that we often remember and rarely find.

We are a neighborhood bakery where Washingtonians can buy food for daily life or for celebration. At Bread Furst, you can select a beautiful loaf of bread with character, indulge in a slice of delicious pie, order a child’s birthday cake, or pick up freshly prepared foods to be enjoyed at your table or ours.

At Bread Furst we believe in offering delicious, wholesome, well-made breads that uphold hundreds of years of traditional bread baking. Breads made from whole grains and ancient grains. Baguettes baked every four hours, so they can be sold and eaten when they are at their best.

Our pastry kitchen creates American desserts made with an inspired mix of tradition and creativity. We strive to make the desserts you love while enticing you with new and exciting flavors. Come in and enjoy our freshly-prepared croissants, brioche, scones, donuts, and other delicious pastries and desserts.

Bread Furst offers a seasonally driven menu made with locally sourced ingredients. Our soups, salads, sandwiches and prepared dishes focus on bold flavors; influenced by the flavors of the Mediterranean, North Africa, and Asia. We also carry a small, but carefully chosen selection of cheese and charcuterie from our favorite local and international producers.

We are pleased to serve you freshly brewed coffee and espresso from Madcap Coffee Company. Stop by for a hot cup of coffee or a drink from our espresso bar, choose from our wide selection of teas, both caffeinated and herbal, or sample one of our refreshing, house-made sodas.”
