We have been waiting for it. Bakehouse opens Wednesday morning at 7 am. The Bakery and Coffee shop at 1407 T Street NW actually came from the ground. Niall Cooper and Lindsey Morse’s BakeHouse has been in the making for more than a year.
Theirs is a great story of entrepreneurship. The couple started a brand for their baked goods, known as Bakehouse, and started selling their products at local markets in DC. But about a year ago, Morse and Cooper started to seriously consider opening their own space to bake and sell their goods.
BakeHouse is in a brand new building on T Street NW. Inside it has very modern aesthetics, a sleek and clean design. Morse previously told Borderstan: “We want to let the pastry shine.” They will be open from 7 am to 9 pm during the week and until 11 pm during weekends.
BakeHouse will offer an ample menu not only for breakfast, but for lunch as well. Tea, homemade syrups and coffee from Zeke’s will be served all day at Bakehouse.
Their breakfast menu includes a variety of baked goods, including scones, loaf slices, English Muffins, oatmeal and granola, biscuits, brioche rolls, bundts, cookies, cupcakes, truffle tarts, biscotti and breakfast sandwiches.
- Pea, Parmesan and Bacon Orecchiette

Bakehouse will serve freshly made products and baked goods. They have an outdoor seating area — great for people to stop by after dinner to enjoy a post-meal sweet.
