Washington Born & Bread !

Firehook opened in 1992 as a neighborhood bakery and coffeehouse with a simple commitment to bake everything from scratch using all natural ingredients. Today, each and every loaf of bread, pastry and cake is still made from scratch using artisanal techniques and all natural ingredients -- a Firehook family tradition. 

What's in a name?

FIREHOOK is not just a superfluous name concocted to make us sound cool behind the ovens. It is actually a name rich in ancient history. When bread was first being discovered, bakers used a hook-shaped tool, called a Firehook, to pull baked loaves out of the fire. Over time, bakers themselves came to be known as "Firehooks", synonymous to "bread bakers". So aside from sounding really cool, Firehook has a purpose.
