WBJ: Frenchie's Launches Kickstarter to Open on H Street



The Washington Business Journal brings news that Frenchie's (which has previously sold croissants & pastries at the farmers markets around here, & I think also at Union Market) recently launched a Kickstarter effort in the hopes opening a brick & mortar shop right here on H Street. They haven't released an address yet, but wouldn't this be a fabulous edition to the east end of the Corridor (the west end already has decadent offerings courtesy of Batter Bowl Bakery at 403 H Street)? If you would like to see them open up, head over & show them a little love.

Would be great if they could open in the former Black Supermarket space, although I keep hearing something boring is moving in, like a non-profit or doctor's office.

I would love it if they opened on the east end! I love croissants and someone seriously needs to make H Street Coffee House (cafe?) step up their game - the coffee, pastries, and decor are awful.

East end, please! We've already become spoiled by their goodies at the market on 13th (returning soon). Frenchies is great!

I'll support this just to get another coffee shop alternative on the east end. Agree with anon 10:05, H Street Coffee isn't cutting it. God I miss Sova.

Another vote for the return of Sova. My only hope is that with so many people having the same feelings about H Street Cafe - that it will just be a matter of time before they morph into something else or close.

+1 on missing Sova. While it had its quirks, it was a neighborhood joint where you would always feel comfortable and get a good coffee and drink. I have never quite felt comfortable at H St. Coffee. Though I hope something happens to change my opinion.

What a joke! Do what the rest of us do when we start a business - take out a loan and/or lease your equipment. Work with your LL about getting some TI money and stretch your dollars to make it work.
