Three Fifty Bakery & Coffee Bar opened up at 17th and U St, NW back in early August. Just noticed this sign out front:

UPDATE from 350Bakery in the comments:

“Hello, I opened Three Fifty Bakery as a Pet Friendly bakery. Having two amazing dogs myself, I purchased water bowls and plan on baking dog treats soon. In November, a customer informed us that it is against DC Health Code to have dogs on our patio. This customer then went outside and took a picture of a dog on our patio. I started to investigate and was told by many people that it was allowed….so I continued to allow it. A few weeks ago, we were paid a visit by the DC Health Department and told that it is not allowed. They said the exterior patio is an extension of our interior. I even said I would take down the fence if that would change things, but was informed that it wouldn’t. As you can imagine, a small business’s worst fear is being shut down for a health violation. Please realize how upset and disheartened that I had to put signs up. If anyone knows anything that I can do to get approval to allow dogs, please let me know and I’ll try to do it.

Sincerely,
Jimmy”
