Long-time Mount Pleasant bakery Heller's is closing after nearly 90. Several outlets are reporting that the bakery, which has operated on the Mount Pleasant commercial strip since 1928, is closing within the week. Heller's is located at 3221 Mount Pleasant Street NW.
Here's the Washington Post write-up of the closure. Looks like you'll have a few more chances to visit, the last being this Sunday, December 28. That's not counting the possibility that the owners will open Heller's in a new spot with a new vibe -- we can hope! RIP Heller's and THANK YOU. Good luck!
Also, someone PLEASE take that soothing blue electric Heller's sign, store it, protect it, and use it in the new store when it's ready. It's awesome!
