Fantastic baguettes, great croissants, and equally great pastries! Fresh Baguette also has a small selection of absolutely wonderful freshly-made sandwiches. And everything fairly priced. Nice place indeed.

Fresh Baguette has the best baguettes I've had anywhere outside of Paris. The staff is friendly and helpful and the prices are extremely fair.

Finally got a chance to stop in and buy some goodies here. We tried a bread and several pastries and everything was as good as we had been told by friends! Can't wait to go back.

This is a tiny bakery tucked into the edge of the Bethesda commercial district (just across from EuroMotors). Good breads, croissants and desserts. Also some excellent small entrees. All look and taste authentically French. There isn't much sit down space here so count on taking...More
