Did Brown’s Caribbean Bakery Close?

October 11, 2011

Brown's Caribbean Bakery, 3301 Georgia Avenue

As I was walking past Brown’s Caribbean Bakery yesterday I noticed that there was a sign in the door (below) stating: “Closed until further notice!” Does anyone know if this is a temporary closure or a permanent closure?

According to the bakery’s Website, Brown’s has been open since 1980 and  has been a staple in the community. It is family owned and operated and has “won many awards for its service and quality products, voted best Jamaican bakery in Washington D.C. by Jamaicans.com.”

The description continues, stating that “[o]wners Selvyn and Eulah Wright supply many area delis and carryouts with soft, fluffy coco bread. This sweet bun, when sliced, forms a pocket. In goes a patty, a satisfying turnover filled with beef, chicken or vegetables. Also popular at Brown’s is the spiced bun, a loaf of bread, flavored with nutmeg, cinnamon and raisons, as well as “bulla” cake made with ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. “Metro Carib Stops,” The Washington Post.”
