Firehook Bakery, The Greatest Firehook Bakery with the massive back patio, is closing in Cleveland Park and I am bereft.

This is devastating for the neighborhood, especially following the recent closure of the Uptown movie theater across the street. This Firehook had been open here since 1997. Not much to add beyond beyond Roric’s initial report: “Nooooooooooo”

3411 Connecticut Ave, NW

Dear God, I hope that back patio is saved for the next tenant.

3411 Connecticut Ave, NW before Wake Up Little Suzie closed. Initially there were reports Firehook would be expanding into this space

Stay tuned.
