First Peek at Batter Bowl Bakery

DSC_0054

Over the years neighbors have repeatedly placed a bakery high on the list of most desired businesses for H Street. We're about to get our wish in Batter Bowl Bakery (403 H Street). Meseret Bekele and Samuel Ergete of Ethiopic (401 H Street). Batter Bowl will sell breads, pastries, cupcakes, soups, salads, and some open faced sandwiches. I’m told they will always have at least one or two vegan options available. The menu will also include waffles, pancakes, and French toast. Capacity is about 35, with seating for roughly 20 patrons. Batter Bowl will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week. They anticipate opening around the start of 2013.

They are currently hiring cashiers, counter employees, and some kitchen staff.

wow. Looks fabulous. Sammy and Meseret know how to do things right. Ethiopic is consistently great and I am sure they will bring it with the new bakery. All the best to them.

When I think of a bakery, it doesn't include - waffles, pancakes, sandwhiches, dinner, etc. I think its great that they are opening this and hope that they aren't stretching their selves too thin by doing too much.

@i'm not being a hater

selling breakfast food and sandwiches, that's probably their best chance to stay afloat-
too much overhead to just be a carry out bakery.

frankly I'm more excited about the breakfast potential than anything else

An Ethiopian bakery?
I was hoping for a German Konditeri mit strudel, etc.

4:44,
The owners are Ethiopian, but the bakery is not. One of the owners has a brother who worked as a pastry chef in Germany. This bakery is a European style bakery.
