“TOI MOI Bakery and Qualia Coffee Popping Up at Eckington Hall on Sundays in January”

1611 Eckington Place, NE

From an email:

Toi Moi Bakery and Qualia Coffee will be popping up at Eckington Hall every Sunday this month from 9am – 1pm.

Toi Moi, owned by Shurou Pu, is a VA-based bakery that weaves in Asian-flavored elements like ube, mochi and matcha with croissants and other pastries.  Here are some menu highlights:

Passion Fruit Mango Mochi Croissant – a croissant filled with mango Passion Fruit cream topped with mango mochi

Savory Danish (Miso Bacon) – croissant dough rolled up with miso paste, bacon pieces and scallions

Pistachio Rose Almond Croissant – double-baked croissant with almond cream flavored with rose water and topped with crushed pistachio

Shorou (who goes by Annie) wanted to have coffee available so she reached out to Joel Finklestein who owns Qualia Coffee, which is right around the corner from Eckington Hall over on Eckington Place. He’ll be popping up with his mobile coffee brewing station.”

To celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week (May 6-10, 2024), Clean Air Partners is working with A Few Cool Hardware Stores to exchange DC, Maryland and Virginia residents’ gas-powered lawnmowers, trimmers, and leaf blowers at select Ace Hardware locations in the region. DMV residents who turn in their gas-powered lawn tools will receive a FREE Ego Power+ replacement including batteries and chargers, while supplies last.

Compared to gas, electric lawn equipment can reduce emissions, noise pollution, health risks and maintenance costs and time. The program aims to remove about a hundred gas-powered polluting tools from yards in the greater Baltimore-Washington region.

The exchanges will take place the weekends of May 17-19, 2024, and May 31-June 2, 2024, at A Few Cool Hardware Stores network of employee-owned Ace Hardware stores in the DC and Baltimore metro areas. To participate and get your free Ego Power+ lawn tool, sign up at to reserve your tool and select your trade-in date and location.
