Bakeshop's doors opened in the winter of 2010 during a legendary blizzard. "Snowpocalypse" shut down the whole Washington DC area for a week, closing all transportation and creating a winter break for children and adults. Bakeshop opened it's doors for those brave souls that made their way in through the mountains of snow for warm cookies and cakes and coffee. Before the bakery was created, Bakeshop consisted of Justin baking out of a small kitchen, doing custom orders and delivering them around the DC area himself. At the same time he was pushing his conventional oven to the limits working on recipes and creating a lineup of sweets that would feature his childhood favorites and American classics. After finding a perfect little spot on Fillmore Street in a nice Clarendon neighborhood Bakeshop was built from scratch. It's been fun!
"I have a major sweet tooth so this line of work was a no-brainer. My mom got me started at a young age, letting me measure out dry ingredients. Sifting flour is still fun. I'm happiest when Mom is in the shop baking with me. The people that come to the shop are awesome it's a pleasure to know them. Wearing shorts everyday and cookies right out of the oven are also major advantages of the job."
