Back in March we posted about a new bakery coming to 12th Street NE in Brookland called the Bakers’ Lounge, and interviewed Catherine Cotay, the baker’s owner/director. Then, in April, we got a sneak peek of the tasty treats to come. We are now happy to announce that the bakery is finally opening Saturday. Here is the tweet that tipped us off:

We caught up with Catherine again to ask about the opening. Here’s what she had to say:
I will be open on Saturday for people to buy baked goods and put in orders for events etc. The space is still transforming and we are expecting our funiture in a few weeks. This Saturday we will open from 12:00 – 8:00 pm.
Going forward we plan on opening from 11:00 am till 8 pm Tuesday to Thursday and till 11 pm on Fridays and Saturday. On Sundays we will be open from 11:00 till 7:00 pm . These might change depending on the demand for late night desserts. This weekend we will have a mixture of baked goods. This Monday being a holiday we will be open from 11 am for people to buy baked goods.
Let’s support this new local business and be sure to let Catherine know what you would like, she is open to responding to neighbors request. The Bakers’ Lounge is located at 2701 12th Street NE (12th and Evarts). Keep in touch with the Bakers’ Lounge on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
