Bread Furst Bakery open - lively, pleasant, and

I love the mixed grain bread I got. Since they just opened yesterday, they are still getting it all together. Everyone was friendly and active. There is parking in the back. I went there at about 2 pm and it was lively, but not overwhelmed. Their bagels looked a different, but that is probably a good thing.

4434 Connecticut Ave NW

  1. Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to go check it out.

    1. I have returned several times and I now love this place. The prices are not low, but almost everything I had I would get again. The sweet items are generally small by usual American standards, but I like that. A small Blondie was a delicate butterscotch, a canele had crunch outside and lovely moist, tender center, and a pastry with just a little sweetness and caramelized edges and a couple of raisins from croissant pastry (I guess) was amazing. I also had a piece of muffuletta which was great, but not really a muffuletta at least from my experience.
      I enjoy the bread most when a reheat in my oven which returns the terrific crunch to the crust. Oh, the everything bagel was unlike any bagel I have had, but terrific.

      1. When I look at the Bread Furst website, it looks like they offer only three sandwiches, and all of them on baguette. Is that right?

        1. re: Steve

          They used to change it up, but the last few times it has only been those three and I did not love the roasted vegetable (or the strata). They are good, but .... A few times, months ago, they had a green tomato BLT and I loved that. One of the staff told me everyone on staff was eating it for lunch.

          The ancient grain bread is the one I get most often, for what it is worth.

        2. Thanks. Sounds like a place to check out

          1. Any thoughts on their bread feast dinner?
