Gold Leaf Bakery is an artisanal bakery in Bethesda offering European-style pastries, croissants, and coffee along with cookies and cakes. Chef Peter has been baking for more than 20 years, using fresh, high-quality ingredients and baking everything on site.
Gold Leaf Bakery specializes in desserts with fresh fruit, real whipped cream and no artificial flavors. For something unique and tasty, try the Mango-Chocolate Mousse Cake, consisting of mango puree and rich dark chocolate mousse with two layers of vanilla sponge and chocolate decorations. The shop also offers custom cakes that can be ordered in advance for any occasion. The bakery has large glass pane windows, sunny yellow walls, and a display case overflowing with treats. The atmosphere is welcoming, and Chef Peter is happy to explain all of his creations and offer samples for any dessert you would like to try. There is also a large selection of tables and seating both inside and outside.
