Un je ne sais Quoi is coming to the former Hello Cupcake space just south of Dupont Circle. They tweeted:

“@eat_dc If everything is all right with the Health Inspection tomorrow, we will be able to open on Saturday


“@eat_dc unfortunately we had to delay the Health inspection on Monday morning.”

Standby for confirmation for this:

“High-quality French pastry shop dedicated to provide an old-fashioned dessert in different flavors for a “gourmet” experience outside restaurants”

Hours will be:

    I’m excited for this place, but I think it’s for the best that I’m generally not in this area during the hours it’s open. Also, I really really hope they make a Kouign-amann; I’ve yet to find a good one in DC.

    • Duponter

      I really love the kouign amann at the pastry spot in Union Market – I think it’s called Panorama. Have you tried it?

      • jumpingjack

        Is that the one on the far NE end, near the BBQ spot and the middle-eastern vendor? I’ve tried it a couple of times and didn’t like it much. My gold standard is Bouchon Bakery (Time Warner Center, NYC), with very close seconds being Dominique Ansel (NYC) and Patisserie Kouign Amann in Montreal.

      I’m generally not in this area ever.

    • Aglets

      Try Potomac Pastry. She use to sell her stuff through Zekes. I think maybe now at Brookland farmers market. Crispy. Carmelized sugary magic.
