Things are coming along for the group of restaurants and cafes set to open along 14th Street NW this spring — one of which is Bakehouse.

“Our space on T Street is looking ever more like a bakery instead of a building site,” said Niall Cooper, who is opening the 1,100 square foot space bakery at 14th and T Streets with his wife, Lindsey Morse (just west of 14th on the north side of T).

According to Cooper, the interior walls are up and finished and most of the millwork is done. Some of the equipment and lighting fixtures are in place, and the duo just recently installed Bakehouse’s exterior sign.

“We hope to have the keys to the space handed over in the latter part of this month, with a soft opening in March,” said Cooper.

Bakehouse will seat roughly 14 people inside and will have a “good amount” of outdoor seating (Cooper estimates the outdoor space will hold another 10 patrons). However, Cooper predicts a large amount of the traffic will be takeout.

The menu will feature breakfast, lunch and dessert items, including a wide array of muffins, breakfast sandwiches (on a homemade English muffin), scones, cakes, candies, cupcakes, paninis and salads. Bakehouse will also offer coffee and specialty drinks from Zeke’s Coffee, a small roaster based in Baltimore.

    Can you confirm that this will be an *actual* bakery where everything is made in-house the morning of?

  • Hi Steve,

    We can absolutely confirm that we’ll be baking in-store every single morning! The kitchen is located in the back of the shop, and our morning customers will be able to see us at work and enjoy baked goodies fresh from the ovens.

    We look forward to welcoming you to BakeHouse soon!

      I look forward to trying some of your fresh baked goodies. You are about a block from me so this is very convenient.

      One question…sorry…what is the deal with the architecture? Considering the nearby buildings on T, yours certainly does, uhm, stand out. It sort of has a house or corrections look to it.
