Great selection of baked goods and coffee. Skip the croissant breakfast sandwiches though. Muffins, beads etc. are what you want to get.

Grabbed a muffin, fruit salad and a hot tea. Quick and friendly service. A few tables to sit down. Close to the Metro and DuPont Circle Hotel. I'd go back.

This is such an odd bakery. It is always crowded but the baked goods are just not that good. They look good, but they are lacking in flavor, are dry and the muffins are often not cooked all the way through in the middle. The bagels must be bought from some other shop, as they are not made there and... More

I have bought Firehook crackers for years and was delighted when I discovered the bakery in Dupont Circle. Delicious baked goods.

Very reasonable prices. Good... More

The smells attack with joy as soon as you walk in! Then you spend 10 minutes deciding what you want cause it all looks so good. It was around the corner from my hotel, the soup was so good especially because I was sick.

The bakery items look wonderful and my scone was really good, but the Panini sandwich and soup was not good.

In all fairness, we didn't stop in for bakery goods, which they are known for. Soup and sandwiches are reasonably priced but lack any real seasoning or flavor over what you could make at home. Limited seating indicates they cater to takeouts. Surprisingly brisk business for a tiny bakery. Perhaps our rating would be different for bakery goods. You have... More

I was working nearby for two weeks and ended up in here almost everyday......I think my waist is a little larger!! Really delicious treats, huge tasty paninis, and the owner or manager was a really friendly guy, who made us fell welcome! If you're in this area, I'd recommend going to Firehook!

Busy, popular with the locals. Tasty treats, freshly made. Coffee good as well. Mind you, I would recommend sharing unless you are very hungry!
