CakeLove, which first opened at 1506 U Street NW in 2002, will close its doors at the end of this month, founder Warren Brown wrote in a press release last night.
Brown added that, while the U Street location is set to close, he’ll launch a new online store this month to help sell the company’s most popular product, CakeLove in a jar.
“After 13 wonderful years, the day has come for us to say goodbye to U Street,” Brown wrote in the release. “While I’m sad to leave the many friends and neighbors of this wonderful community, I’m very excited for this change.”
Brown will celebrate the company’s 13-year run with goodbye party and cake-cutting ceremony this Saturday at noon at the U Street location.
CakeLove’s location in Arlington closed at the beginning of 2015.

Why not another food posting this morning? Personally, I don’t find D.C. to be the best place for bakeries, delis and diners. We lack all three… places to get good, affordable food when you’re in a hurry… either sit-down or takeout.
So the opening of a new bakery on Connecticut Avenue is cause for hope. My view of food is formed by my rural Midwestern roots and the fact that I lived in Chicago for 10 years. Chicago was populated by waves of immigrants from Poland, Sweden, Germany, Greece and Italy (and many other countries) and to this day they make the city a diner-bakery-deli heaven.
