The Van Ness-Forest Hills neighborhood has a true gem in Bread Furst. They have all of the artisan breads and pastries you’d expect from a bakery, plus prepared foods and shelves stocked with specialty items. The shop is rustic and cozy, and the staff is friendly, making it the kind of place you just don’t see anymore.
Stop in to carry out a variety of freshly baked baguettes, ciabattas, and other loaves baked in their stone deck oven, or a few desserts like cakes, pies, and muffins. You can also sit to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or lunch with your choice of salads, soups, and sandwiches as you enjoy the smell of fresh baked goods. Bread Furst even caters, whether you need individual boxes for a crowd, or a party platter.
There is a small parking lot behind the bakery, or it is just a few steps from the Van Ness metro stop on Connecticut Avenue.
