“Had a good time over there this afternoon. The patio was nice and shaded, with prompt service. Ordered a few drinks and a salad (which was pretty good) and fries (very good). Would recommend this spot for a pretty easy-going afternoon, and I will return one day for their dinner menu!” – Christopher Y.

“The only thing that gets me up early on Saturday mornings is the promise of quality bread and other pastries from Catania. The owners and the patrons are pillars of the community, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better loaf and a better way to spend your Saturday morning. My advice: go early, because they regularly sell out.” – Charles Ryan L.
Seylou Bakery, the word Seylou is the name of an eagle in the Senegal region. Senegal is a location that Jonathan remains to visit and support to this day and is home to many dear friends. Jessica and Jonathan, husband and wife duo, began Seylou in 2017. His comprehensive study and work in the San Francisco Bay area and the Washington State University Bread Lab prepared him to open a whole grain, a locally sourced fresh-milled leaven bakery on the East Coast closer to their families. His passion for bread and local grains began on a trip to Senegal in 2007 and provided the inspiration for what is now Seylou.
Bakery & Mill
“I’ve visited renowned bakeries all over the world and Seylou offers hands down the best bread and pastries I´ve ever had. You can taste the organic locally sourced grain in every single bite! Anyone who lives in the DC area is fortunate to have this piece of grain heaven nearby… And for anyone skeptical about their deep-colored loaves, let me assure you that nothing is burnt, everything is baked to perfection. Can´t wait to be back for more!” – Breana’s Toast
