A few weeks ago, my friend R and I met up for a weekend lunch at Bakers & Baristas in DC. I thought they sold sandwiches and other "lunch" foods, but apparently they aren't selling them yet. Since we were already there, we decided to pick a few items from the lovely-looking pastry case to try out!
Along with some coffee, we ordered a Cinnamon swirl bun (left) and Butterkuchen (right) which consists of custard, toasted almonds & pastry cream. Both were tasty but I really loved the Butterkuchen. As someone that is a big fan of custard breads (especially from Japanese bakeries), it was no surprise that I would like this custard-studded fluffy bread. It's a cute spot to grab a pastry and a latte to go, or sit down in the shop and catch up with friends. It's always nice to have a new option for a casual coffee/pastry shop in the area!
