Start Your Weekend With Asian-Inspired Treats at Rose Avenue Bakery
It used to be that customers wandered into Rose Avenue Bakery every day to ogle rows of sugar-glazed fruit tarts, square-cut fudge brownies, and colorful iced pastries filling the bakery’s big glass display case before placing their order. These days, the decision-making process has been mostly relocated to the bakery’s website, which is located not far from your apartment in DC and features row upon row of gorgeous photographs of this place’s delectable and unique Asian-American sweets. Pick up a dozen passion fruit donuts for to nosh on during leisurely weekend breakfasts, or serve a 6-inch ube coconut cake for dessert after dinner to make any night of the week feel special.
Pro tip: be aware that Rose Avenue Bakery is extremely popular and it is worth your while to pre-order online, as the shop is only open for pick-up on Fridays and Saturdays, and many of the bakery’s most popular items sell out in advance every week.
