Girl Scout Cookies Are Back

girl-scout-cookiesLovers of treats rejoice: it’s Girl Scout cookie season.

Scouts in sashes will be selling scores of sweets around the county, and it’s already underway. This afternoon, scouts will be posted up at the 1800 N. Oak Street Apartments in Rosslyn from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Ft. Myer Commissary (523 Carpenter Road) from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Giant Foods at 3115 Lee Highway, 2501 9th Road S. and 3450 Washington Blvd from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and at the Metro stations in Courthouse, Virginia Square, Ballston, East Falls Church, Pentagon City and Crystal City during the evening rush hours.

Bakeshop Does Breakfast

Clarendon’s cupcake-and-coffee store Bakeshop is now serving breakfast.

At the bright and early hour of 8:00 a.m., Tuesday through Friday, Bakeshop (1025 North Fillmore Street) will unlock the doors and start selling bagels, croissants, coffeecake and Wrecking Ball coffee. The new opening hours took effect yesterday, and we hear it was surprisingly busy for the first day.

Upscale cupcake bakeries are nothing new. Georgetown Cupcake, Baked & Wired, and Hello Cupcake are just a few of the gourmet baked goods establishments lining the streets of the District. Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe on 2150 N. Culpeper Street in North Arlington has won some online acclaim for its more traditional cupcakes. But Bakeshop, at 1025 N. Fillmore Street, has the distinction of being the first of its kind in Clarendon.

The store is a labor of love for chief cupcake maker Justin Stegall. Stegall’s sweets have been sold at various DC coffee shops, including Chinatown Coffee Co. (hat tip: Washington City Paper). Now, he finally has a storefront to call his own.

Bakeshop hasn’t officially opened yet, but Stegall has been inviting people to check out the store during special hours announced via Twitter. During Saturday’s snow storm, about 60 people stopped by for a so-called soft opening. Within five hours, the store was sold out.
