Batter Bowl Bakery is Open
Batter Bowl Bakery (403 H Street) is up and running. Batter Bowl Bakery is the new European style bakery from the owners of Ethiopic. Reader Ken Eisner was their first customer today and he sent in these photos, as well as the description below.
I was their first customer, in their soft launch today -- very excited to have a premium bakery and breakfast shop on the west side of H Street. They begin serving breakfast and sandwiches on Tuesday. There was a limited number of options today, and I ordered a tasty and well made Illy decaf cappuccino and a chocolate croissant that was flaky and delicious, reminiscent of something you'd find at an Amsterdam cafe as opposed to DC). They also gave me a complimentary croissant that was much more decadent and rich on the interior, and they had hearty free sliced bread. There were three staff people who waited on me, each excited to see their first customer and very kind and quick with service.
You can read more about the bakery in this post that I wrote last month (includes photos). Stop by for a fresh pastry, and a cup of Illy coffee.
