Firehook has been a reliable and delicious staple for sweets, cookies, pastries and coffee for over a decade. Great selection and fast service.

Just off Dupont Circle, Firehook bakery has fresh bread, cakes and coffee at good prices. We liked it for afternoon coffee and cakes but it looks like it's popular all day!

We went for breakfast on a Monday morning. Although the pastries are excellent and the staff couldn't possibly be any more upbeat and friendly, we did not enjoy our eat-in experience. Too loud, too crowded, too many people. Fair prices, good coffee.
