From a press release:

“Tiffany MacIsaac, Pastry Chef/Owner of Buttercream Bakeshop, is pleased to announce the opening of her first storefront, located at 1250 9th Street, NW in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC.

The bakery is a culmination of a yearlong quest by the award-winning pastry chef to find the perfect flagship location for Buttercream Bakeshop. During that time, MacIsaac has been busy creating exquisite, custom wedding cakes and special occasion sweets that have been available since August 2014 by delivery and at select pop-up events in the DC metro area.

Mornings at Buttercream Bakeshop will bring an array of signature breakfast items, such as the Buttercream Breakfast Bun, scrambled eggs with sharp cheddar and breakfast sausage rolled in milk bread, Buttercream Bakeshop’s take on a breakfast sandwich. The shop will also feature an array of Flakies, rich and buttery round croissant-style pastry in classic (rolled in sugar) or with seasonal fillings, such as passion fruit, chocolate, almond, and Nutella. Buttercream Bakeshop’s Cinnascone is expected to be a crowd-pleaser; the buttermilk scone dough is treated like a cinnamon roll, filled with a mixture of butter, sugar and cinnamon, and topped with a cinnamon sugar glaze.

A strong, carefully sourced coffee program by Compass Coffee and stellar sweets will be available to enjoy within the intimate 12-seat space or to-go throughout the day. New treats that are debuting include Nutella HoHos, Funfetti Cookie Cream Pies, and Cookie Dough Brownie Bars. The cake program will receive extra attention, featuring designs for every event, from a simple birthday celebration to an elaborate wedding.

In addition to the baked goods and coffee offerings, guests of the new Buttercream Bakeshop will be able to shop special occasion greeting cards, cake toppers, floral arrangements and custom iced sugar cookies, in what MacIsaac hopes will become a one-stop-shop for all things celebratory.

Buttercream Bakeshop is located on the street level of The Colonel, a new apartment community located in the heart of the revitalized Shaw neighborhood. Buttercream Bakeshop is open Tuesday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Monday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Shortly after opening, MacIsaac will use her shop to host after hours baking classes for all ages and skill levels.”

    The baking classes sound like a great addition to this business. I’m excited to have it nearby (and hopefully their take on a breakfast sandwich isn’t $9.25 – I’m looking at you Dacha market)

    • textdoc

      $9.25?!? Yikes!

      • Andie302

        YES! I rarely bulk at the price of anything, but I got a bullfrog bagel with egg and cheese and no drink and was blown away. It turns out they charged me for a bacon, egg, and cheese, and they did give me the bacon (they offered to remake it, but it was serving as my breakfast and lunch so I didn’t mind)…but ugh!

    • Deebs

      Prices are on their website – buttercreamdc dot com – and look pretty reasonable! It’s hard to tell if the $4.25 breakfast buns are so tiny that you’d need two for an actual breakfast, though.

        they arent

  • Truxton Thomas

    This sounds naughty and amazing. I’m in.

    “Nutella HoHos.”
    Uh muh gah. There is drool in my keyboard.

    You all NEED the Breakfast Bun in your life. Its softball sized (so enough to fill me up) and very tasty. I inhaled it in about 30 seconds in the car! Much better than a similar product by another bakery in the area. Bought some other goodies to test with hubby tonight….

    The cakes look awesome in person, looking forward to trying them next week.

  • JMo

    So excited for this! Loved EVERY dessert she had at Vermilion in Old Town. Congrats, Chef!

  • Shaw Neighbor

    Went this morning and picked up about 5 things to share with coworkers. All were amazing.

  • Glad my trip to DC was last week! And packed! Or I’d be totally fatting out
