Panorama Bakery Opens Today at Union Market

DSC_0025

A new bakery has set up shop in Union Market (1309 5th Street) and you can sample their wares starting today. Panorama Bakery was previously a mostly wholesale business, with the exception of tables at the Bloomingdale, and 14th & U Street NW farmer's markets. Panorama currently supplies breads to several well regarded local restaurants and hotel chains, including: Citronelle and Central, Bastille, the Four Seasons, Hilton, Hyatt, Westin, Crowne Plaza, Faccia Luna, Overwood, 100 King, Tempo, Table Talk and Le Gaulois. You will not be able to get their fresh breads at Union Market, but they will sell pastries, viennoiseries, and cakes.

Can we please get a location? Union Market is large. Locations are always missing from posts here, unless it's an Alan post.

It's not so big that you won't be able to find the new bakery, right?

Why does a request for complete information make them a whiner?

Union Market isn't a huge space. It's three rows of vendors. You could walk the entire thing in about 15 minutes.

Too bad that a photo of a loaf of bread is shown with this article because Panaroma is not selling their breads... maybe because of the Lyon breads. Not complaining because I love Lyon bread.

I walked over there today but I couldn't find it. I had planned on buying some things. Too bad no one could provide a location.

That was disappointing. Everything was refrigerated to within an inch of its life.
I imagine that this is some sort of DC Board of a Health rule that forces them to chill all their baked goods because Americans are so frail that we die if everything is off ice for a few hours. If this were true, everyone in Europe would have been dead centuries age.
Not going to pay those prices for what are essentially "leftovers".

After engaging a Union Market sherpa to find the bakery (middle row, at the end near 6th Street, across from DC Mediterranean), I purchased several pastries. The Napoleon was *quite* good as was the cranberry scone. The apple turnover had an apple sauce-type filling and, while tasty, I would have preferred actual pieces of apple. The chocolate and strawberry croissants were delicious, but I think I still prefer those from Batter Bowl Bakery. They had a good selection and I wasn't overly bothered by everything being chilled. Definitely a place I'll go back to.
