Bakery for Breakfast in the D.C./Arlington Area?

  • r

We'll be visiting in a couple weeks and love trying new local bakeries for breakfast. We like places that serve pastries, bagels, croissants, bagel sandwiches, scones, etc. We don't care if they serve it all or just some of the things listed, we just want it to be great and worth visiting for out of towners. We have a car and GPS and don't mind driving to find good food.

        1. Hello there! I usually take visiting friends to Bread & Chocolate - http://www.iexpediter.com/demo/brdnch.... They have a good selection of pastries, cakes, and breads and also a good brunch selection (omelettes and so forth). There are a number of locations in DC and in Alexandria (not sure if any in Arlington).

          Here's the website specifically for locations: http://www.iexpediter.com/demo/brdnch...

          1. If you want to drive a little further out - meaning main area of Vienna (Rt 123 / Maple Avenue) i LOVE Cenan's Bakery.
            In my opinion they bake some of the best croissants and scones around. (good coffee too) Probably a 20 min drive from Arlington.
