Frenchie's Artisan Pastries Is Coming To Maketto

Frenchie's Bakery from Sarah Cannon on Vimeo.

Frenchie's Artisan Pastries, a longtime staple/sensation at the H Street Freshfarm Market, (Saturdays, 9-12 noon, at 13th & H) will make its permanent home at Maketto (1351 H St NE), according to a recent article in the Post. With Vigilante Coffee already on board, this brings a very enticing new breakfast spot option to the east end of H, as well as serving our caffeine and sweet tooth needs throughout the day. Rounding out the eclectic market, Durkl will serve your fashion needs and Toki Underground's Eric Bruner-Yang will add Asian fare to the mix.

Any ETA on opening date for Maketto? Why does it take so long for things to open? What's up with Ocopa, Po Boy Jims, etc etc?

Probably early fall. There are lots of hoops to jump through when you open a place. The good thing is that we have multiple new places that just opened. Impala, Halftime Sports Bar & The Prospect are all brand new & waiting to be explored.

It was a long wait, but it's open & the food is very good. It's also the most vegan friendly full service Mexican restaurant I've ever seen.

Ahh...nice place - good grilled cheese. I'm hoping dessert is the next thing to make it on Pursuit's menu!

So the place that got a $80k grant in taxpayer money reserved for non-food places will have a bakery?

They can serve food, they just have to have a non-food component (i.e., the retail).

It's good to see that they're artisan pastries, but are they also locally-sourced, sustainable, free-range and fair-trade?
