If you’re looking for a cafe to add to your rotation, you need to check out Sunday Morning Bakehouse in Bethesda, MD at Pike & Rose. Their handcrafted and house-made pastries are made in small batches. They only use high-quality ingredients.
Sunday Morning Bakehouse was founded by Caroline Yi, a Montgomery County, MD native. It’s a family-run shop located in Bethesda, MD, and the name was inspired by her mom making Sunday breakfast spreads because it was the only day that her father had off.

WHAT I ORDERED
Sunday Morning Bakehouse sells handmade croissants (sweet and savory), seasonal pastries, breakfast items, toasts, a few lunch items, and other pastries. They also have matcha, tea, chai, and coffee drinks: drip, espresso, cappuccino, latte, and cold brew. There are also a few syrup options available.
Caramel Cold Brew
Over the past year or so, I’ve become a big cold brew fan. I love that it’s less bitter than a regular brew. I had been thinking about cold brew all week, so I ordered that and added caramel syrup to it.
This Caramel Cold Brew was one of the smoothest I’ve had. The caramel really got to shine in this drink. And to think I almost didn’t add the caramel syrup. If you love your coffee less sweet, this may be the drink for you. It’s more on the coffee side than the sweet side.
Blueberry Croissant Tart
The Blueberry Croissant Tart looked so interesting to me. Flaky, soft, fresh…how could I not order it? It’s made with a cream cheese filling, blueberries, and lemon zest.
This pastry was delicious. I love a good lemon zest with berries. You could taste how fresh the fruit and the croissant tart were. It was also perfectly flaky. I’d order this again in a heartbeat.
I ordered a strawberry jelly donut for my mom, and she let me try a bit for this blog post. It smelled amazing and tasted so fresh. I loved how soft it was. The filling paired well with and was balanced out with the donut itself. This was one of the best jelly donuts I’ve ever had.
I loved the overall vibe of Sunday Morning Bakehouse. It felt like the neighborhood bakery that you could depend on to get a good coffee with a pastry on the side. Everyone was kind and helpful. The next time you’re looking for a fresh pastry, check out Sunday Morning Bakehouse!
