Say it ain't so.... Mt Pleasant's only neighborhood bakery has closed, at least according to a a sign in the window. It always seemed like the kind of place that could withstand the pressures of gentrification, but maybe not.

Anyone know what happened? Is the other branch closed too?

Yes, Heller's is closed, but the owners are looking for another baker to reopen it. It was not well managed the last few years.

Confirmed about the sign in the window: "Heller's is no longer open for business. Sorry."

But if it brings any comic relief, Red Bean has made a gallant attempt to write their name in French on a handwritten sign in their window: "L'Haraicot [sic] Rouge."

Has anyone been to Dos Gringos?

Cheers,

Rocks.

I sure have! Good coffee and lots of earthy-crunchy sandwiches. A little to whole-wheat for my taste, but the avocado sandwich with black bean spread reminds me Mexican tortas. They have ice cream downstaairs too, but I've never tried it.

As mentioned, it's not Mexican as you might guess, but vegetarian. The breakfast there is pretty decent (haven't been in awhile, though). A friend of mine used to jokingly call it "Solamente Gringos". :laugh:

Heller's is back, according to a post by ANC member Jack McKay on the Mount Pleasant DC Forum:

Heller's Bakery, much missed by Mount Pleasant residents, will re-open on Monday, February 28. Let's support the new owners, Aleksander and Erland Duni, as they bring a little bit of Greece to Mount Pleasant.
